Takinoyu, Osaki

(4.4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
A single-story wooden house built on a slope, the Naruko Onsen public bath of Takinoyu provides the ultimate hot spring experience. Set in the midst of Kurikoma mountain range, this is the oldest and one of the leading hot spring shrines in the Tohoku area. Only a three-minute walk from Naruko Onsen station, this gender-separated establishment doesn't offer soap or shampoo, as its water has a natural sterilization effect. Soak in hot pools of various temperatures as the naturally heated water pours in from wooden pipes. The whitish, acidic-tasting water contains sulfur, giving your skin a great shine despite its strange appearance. Add Takinoyu and other attractions to your Osaki trip itinerary using our Osaki vacation builder.

  • It is a "water falls" that history is if you come to the naruko hot spring public baths. First traveler offers accommodation together, to tell the truth without any knowledge of what I learned (lol) is very limited, but quite tsukaremasenn in hot water will get more and more!

  • 150 yen. Bathtub is the front heat and back (sometimes quite hot) and deep lukewarm. Abundant in hot torrents of water falling from the top three woodwind and floors are layers of water. Hit the water in a bathtub at the back. But not this hot. He said because the acid is strong soaps and shampoos are not.

  • It is a public bath arrive in 5 minutes on foot from naruko-Onsen station. One adult admission is a whopping 150 yen! It looks quaint, cozy and clean is because water is authentic! Small bath and large bath (hot water heat soaking) (deep, lukewarm) of or by two tubs only and 10 others will be crowded. However, the water is exactly what real hot springs, bath making history makes people feel. This is 150 available! And groaned until spring! There are no lockers. Must visit!
