|Shiobara hot spring
Old popular open-air bath
Although the common open-air bath in the Shiobara hot-spring resort is mostly situated in the shore of Hoki river, Fudo-no-yu has left a few from the shore. You need to go across the small suspention bridge of a Fukuwata hot spring, and need to walk along a riverside path. It is a distance good to a walk. The open-air bath is in about 100m from the shore.
A undressing hut is in the side of the mountain stream with many big rocks. A bathtab is only one mixed bathing here. Hot water is also overflowing in plenty. There is no light in night.

Since the open-air bath is popular, although it is early in the morning, it is coming many people. A lady also covers the body with a towel and is soaking in hot water. Since the iron ingredient has melted into water, the bathtab has the rust color. The nature of the water of a hot spring is calcium and a sodium- chloride spring. Hot spring water which is flowing is hot.
The circumference is woods and it is a mountain stream in front of the open-air bath. It is ideal environment.
Although it is a wonderful open-air bath, it is regrettable that it is crowded too much.
