We visited this park after hiking Mt. Fuji, so we may have appreciated it slightly more than most visitors due to our sore feet and legs, haha. Signs at each foot bath are in Japanese (mostly Kanji), so I have no idea what they said. But we spent time in every foot bath. Each had a different feel to the water, different temperature, and texture on the bottom of the basins.
We also walked through the Manyu Park to get there. I'm not sure if that is the typical path, or if there is an easier way to get to Doppo no Yu. However, Manyu Park is lovely, with waterfalls, rushing water, shrines, (lots of spiders), pavilions, and a tanuki shrine hidden away off the main path. It was a beautiful walk for us.
The day that we went was very hot, and the park was packed with adults, couples, seniors, and young children daring each other to put their feet in the hottest basin. I didn't mind, personally.

We came across this place a little by accident as we were staying at a local Ryokan,

Nestled away in hills and a tiny path you will come across this foot spa. No English was spoken here and there was a lot of pointing and not really understanding what was going on...but it all made sense in the end!

You pay 300 Yen to use the spa (we used the foot spa for about an hour...i don't believe there is a time limit but you may want to confirm) You need a 100 Yen coin to use the lockers where you keep your shoes and swap them for a pair of rubber slippers.

Each pool (we later found out) has properties that help different parts of your body - kidneys, heart, brain, lungs etc. However all signs are in Japanese so I have no idea what helps what...to be safe spend a bit of time in each pool (there are 9 in total)

The water is wonderfully hot, and each pool has a different temperature which ranged from cool to mega hot - be careful of these ones as my legs went from pale to bright red ever so quickly!

Its a nice cheap way to spend an hour or so of time...there isn't much around Yugawara so this was a nice distraction!
