Hirano Hot spring

The public relaxation facility for hot spring in Yamanaka Lake


Ishiwari-no-yu is the public relaxation facility for hot spring in Yamanaka ko-mura.
There is Mt. Ishiwari at the north of Yamanaka Lake. It is a hot spring at the foot of this mountain.

The building is a log house style. The shape is strange, and reminds us of the Sawarabi-no-yu in Saitama where we have gone before. There are some day trip's hot spring at the east side of Mt Fuji. The hot spring has a high popularity around here.

The hot spring was very crowded. We heard from regular customer that it was not very crowded on that day.

Because it was near Yamanaka Lake, many youg people have been there.
