Tokusa hot spring
Hirose-no-yu ****

Public-bathhouse between quiet mountains


Tokusa hot spring is famous for the open-air bath at the shore of the Nishine river. In order to be calmly soaked in a hot spring, Hiroses-no-yu which is a public bathhouse is good. Hirose-no-yu is situated in the entrance of a Tokusa community. You can find it immediately.

The building is wooden and has man and woman's bathrooms. By reception desk, a local old woman welcomes with smile.

The reverse side of Hirose- no-yu is woods, and looks good from the window of bathrooms. It is a pleasant view. The washing place of the bathroom is narrow. There is a big bathtub in the center of the bathroom. This is a country typical public bathhouse. Water of the hot spring is a little hot, and warms up in my body. When I asked the preceding visitor photography, he made it lighthearted. I felt the friendship of the people who like a hot spring.

Water of this hot spring is slightly white. This hot spring was drilled in 1985. The nature of the water of a hot spring is an alkaline simple hot spring. Water is heated slightly. This is a quiet public bathhouse. I want to come here again.
