When I went there, it was just under renovation, and I could not see any of the rooms inside, but only the bathtub. The bathtub was only big enough for five or six people, and the quality of the hot spring water was mediocre, not smelly, and tasteless, almost like boiled tap water. Worst of all, when buying tickets, the lady who seemed to be a guard just guided us in a robotic manner, and gave us instructions with a stupid strictness as if we were in North Korea, creating a comical fascism. I love onsen in Japan, but this place would definitely be one of the worst and even if it wasn't under renovation, it would be in the worst 3!

An antique onsen building which has 2 sides. First one you can enjoy an onsen which counts as the oldest onsen. Another one, you can visit a private bath that the japanese emperor once used.

This has been under reparations. Although you can enjoy the public bath you can’t see the pretty historical building right now. It’s very simple but very good.

This is a wonderful onsen to visit and experience. The staff were friendly and helpful explaining us the etiquette and showing us the way. The bathes were traditional, clean and soothing. The outside area offered many photo opportunities. Unfortunately the onsen was being renovated when we visited, so not all usually vantage points were available, but it was an amazing place to visit!

One of the oldest if not the oldest onsen available today. Even the emperor of Japan bathed here before. Note that you need to buy ticket at the entrance and do make sure you have some money on hand as well as they will ask if you need towels, tea, etc agter you got in.
