Surreal and simple

Lovely staff and locals. Curious to find - come straight out of the port stop and head to the bike hire shop on the left an it's down the side alley. 510 Yen for an adult.

One of the nicest baths I have visited in Japan. Bright clean and artistic. Came out very relaxed. The staff was very kind to foreigners and we always need some help.

An old public bath restored and redecorated by the Japanese modern artist/ recuperation artist Shinro Otake. A fun experience for sure, with bits and pieces of sexy Japanese artwork from various periods in the dressing rooms and in the bathtub. Less than 5 minute walk from the main port of Naoshima. Soap and towels and other related merchandise designed by... More

A merging of public bath, hallucinatory experience and art project - this place is an amazing way to end a long day museum hopping on the island. Good 1) Location - in the center of Miyanoura Port, next to most of the bars and accommodation and on the corner of a street - it is very easy to find. 2)... More

The best way to freshen up on this art rich island. Before you enter you by little tickets from the vending machine (with english and japanese labels) and then hand the tickets over to the non-english speaking lady at the entance, 1 meter away. If you haven't brought your towel, just buy one (that you can keep). You will need... More

You'll be better served to find a real onsen. This is a kind of trendy art project. I'd suggest a more authentic experience of a hot spring elsewhere. If you do decide to go, bring your own towel as they do not provide them and will charge you to purchase one.

If you have never been to a bath before be informed that you divide into the single sex bathrooms. Strip down and then clean yourself in a shower before sinking into the hot water. You and everyone else will be naked. You will not be allowed in if you are naked or drunk. The baths are beautifully decorated, there is... More

The baths represent a piece of art in istelf. Never seen such a place in Japan before. A great place to go after having cycled around the island in the day. Unmissable

Art and architecture is everywhere at the Naoshima, also at this bath house. You are taking a bath in an artwork, a nice way to see art. The building is great to see from the outside with all the incredible decorations. Inside it is the same style. Everywhere you look there is something to see, from the enterance, dressing room...
