“Missed the inside so I cannot give it a bad review. Closes at 5pm, sharp!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

We just missed the center closing but really enjoyed the volcanic mineral water foot bath in the garden at the rear along the shore. Even if you just do that its worth it. Easy walk of 300m from ferry pier.
