A scene from the open-air bath is an excellent view. As the trees in front of the open-air bath is cut off, and it seems that we look the veiw through window. When you sit down on the bathtub, you will see the river bank of the Kosibu River. It is a wonderful scene.

Hot water is alkalinity, and clear. The wooden bath made of Hinoki is pleasant.

When it is full of the hot water overflowed the bathtub, we are bothered by the noise of the drainage mouth.
