|Tokusa hot spring
open-air bath ****
Natural hot spring of the shore of a river
The Tokusa hot spring has the famous open-air bath of the shore of this river. A Tokusa colony is a small colony of several ten houses in Minami-aizu.
When we go to the open-air bath, there is no roof. A roof should be situated in the open-air bath. A river should rise 3 or 4m for the heavy rain of 1 month ago (August, 1998), and the roof carried away. There are only marks of a pillar and two bathtabs.
It seems that there are still many users. This hot spring is a mixed bathing.

Visit Day: 1998 September
Just before baths is the Nishine river. The temperature of hot water is a little more tepid, and water is overflowing from bathtabs. Since the visit day rained, I soaked my legs in the bathtab, without removing dress. The view is very very well. Probably, a fine day is pleasant surely.
The path from the road to the open-air bath is unclear.
Come down the side of the Izutsuya hotel. A small guidance board is in the entrance of the path. The center of a photograph is the entrance.
We are wishing that the broken roof is restored early.
