Gender-rotated Mountain Stream Open-air Bath ‘Takimi-no-Yu’
This is a mountain stream open-air bath with waters flowing straight from the source, where guests can feel the dramatic seasonality of the Waga River as it feeds into Lake Kinshu. The waterfall the lodging’s name is derived from is flowing right in sight. The temperatures of the open-air bath’s shallow and standing baths vary slightly. The standing bath, with a depth of 1 meter, has a massage effect due to its water pressure.
Steam Bath ‘Yumuro’
This is a natural steam bath that uses the blessings of the 97℃ hot spring source in the ‘Takimi-no-Yu’ bath. It does not reach extremely high temperatures, so there is little strain on the body, and no strong stimulation. Your skin will be gently moisturized. By inhaling the steam that rises from the hot spring, nasal congestion and respiratory organs will be relieved, and the steam also helps with remedying colds and hay fever.
