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

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.
