The place is within walking distance of the Ferry Pier. We didn't pay to go inside, but took a few snaps outside, which was very colourful & decorated.

Fun and odd to look at the art while bathing. Couple who run the place are very friendly. Definitely the most unique onsen you will visit in Japan.

Scrupulously clean and fascinating art including huge elephant. English speaking assistant and helpful English signs make it all easy. A great way to break a busy day.

Loved the ambience, decor and music. Super clean facility. Bathing facility is a little small for a public bath but confortable. A price is a little high considering the size of the bath and fact that no soap / towels are provided. Bring your own!...More

When in Japan, you should experience the communal bath at least once. This one is traditional in most respects except that it's also an art installation itself! Lovely. We had visited a traditional bath in Kyoto a few nights before where the customers were almost...More

I never saw any children at any of the bathhouses I visited in Japan, only adult women (and men, on their side). There's nowhere to put a baby while you're washing, no child "seat" or childcare facility. From what I've read... More
