It was my first public bath experience and I had to admit I was quite nervous with the thought of getting naked in front of strangers. Surprisingly for me it turn out to be a rather soothing experience. The bath house was clean. The art displays has definitely provided me with the necessary distraction from my anxiety. For those who... More

The exterior is a mixed bag of elements, all sorts of objects put together almost whimsical. You can find parts of a boat, rudder, propeller, bits and pieces of all sorts. I do not have much good things to say about the interior cause after visiting the other Onsens in Japan, this seems like a hot water in a tub.... More

This was my first public bath experience in Japan. I must say that I never planned on setting foot on an Onsen but this crazy art installation of a place plus the whole tranquil vibe of Naoshima helped me get rid of my preconceptions and go in. The room itself is incredible and the elephant sculpture at the top is... More

Naoshima has not a lot to do expect the art scene. So I decided to try this bath. What a pleasant surprise. Small but really well decorated in a pop art/chaotic art style. Very bright and light. Great to go even for just half an hour. And you will only see locals there.

This was a good introduction. Very clean and quite amazing with the artwork all around. Make sure that you take along a towel and your wash bag etc.

Japanese bath is not so unique in modern world, it is must do thing when you visit Japan. But most people choose to do enjoy Japanes bath in Ryokan (Japanese traditional hotel), or many of the resort hotel which offer hot spring. Naoshima Bath is however, a public bath which tourist hardly experienced. It is located in the center near... More

This is an experience unique unto itself as the hot tub is set among a collection of Chinese landscape rocks carefully chosen and strategically placed so you have the feeling like you are in the middle of a miniature Chinese landscape looking out towards the inland see. I was completely alone and had the rare opportunity to enjoy this uniquely... More

Hot tub it in the midst of an art field overlong the Seto Inland Sea. Well, how much better can it get. But reserve ahead to ensure your place in the sun.

This onsen is just the coolest - you really have to see it. One thing I would say though, is to take your own towel and toiletries - they are quite expensive to buy at the onsen.
