We purchased the special Kotoden package for JPY1000 yesterday - included a one-day train pass, onsen fee and a free towel. The train pass is a big fan so a bit ridiculous - but also funny - to carry around in Winter. A short walk...More

This is one of my favourite onsens of all time (have been to Japan three times and onsen-ed several times each trip). There is an indoor bath and three outdoor baths for each gender, with variations in temperature from cool to warm to very hot....More

We bought the Kotoden day pass + onsen entry package. Great deal. Bring your toilettes the package includes a towel but not the toilettes. The onsen is around 10-15 min walk from the station. The spa is not big and most are local people. I...More

A fantastic Onsen, people with design affinity will love this place as it uses natural materials in a very sensible way. Shampoo and body soap are supplied, the spacious garden holds 4 baths in various temperatures and most guests seem to be local. Children are...More

Tip: you can buy a package at the main Kotoden train stations: 1000¥ gets you a round trip ticket to Busshozan station, admission to the onsen, a small souvenir towel and a paper Marugame fan which serves as your train ticket. Check out the poster...More

As other travellers' images would reveal, the onsen is indeed very modern, with a traditional layout inside. Towels and toiletries are not supplied (you can buy them), so bring your own. The whole onsen feels like a bathhouse and everyone inside are locals. Remember to...More

We took our children here (8,13) for their first Onsen experience and I think it was a good choice. The Onsen is very beautiful and very modern design, but somehow still feels like a traditional community Onsen as well. We went just after lunch which...More
