We paid 1030 yen each. Locker is 100 yen. You may bring your own towel or pay a small fee for it. Changing and shower area are rather small. The sand was heavy and hot when buried in them. Overall, a fun experience.

It is something different. A warm sand bath with heavy sand on your body. But not uncomfortable because your head is out of the sand. Pity that it only lasted 10 minutes. I would have liked it longer.
