The area
Neighborhood: City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

A very pleasant and relaxing onsen
Jun 2019 • Solo
This place is a very nice, local onsen and I was the only non-Japanese person there (as it's in a quiet part of town). There is an outdoor and and indoor part and the place is very clean and the staff are most helpful. There are a number of water jet/jacuzzi like baths which are very powerful if you really want that strong massage feel. There is also a steam room and a sauna. Remember to take two 100 yen coins though, as you need one for your shoe locker and one for your clothes locker (both are returned)

Relaxing local Onsen
Oct 2016 • Friends
I been to the Mibu Onsen with my friends. We really liked the place. It's nice and cozy in there. Although signs are all In Japanese it is easy to get into it.
I think that is, It is nicer then the one with recommendation of the lonely planet where I have also been to.

Great local bath experience to try
Aug 2016 • Family
I took my high school daughter to as she wanted to experience the Japanese baths and we had a wonderful time. Be prepared to put coins into ticket dispensing machines at front desk to buy entry ticket ($7) and towel ($2) and then hand to counter person just feet away. Machine is in Kanji but desk person helped and we were off to separate men/woman lockers and bath areas. Have another Y1 coin ready for locker. Like a BIG gym's locker, tiled shower, most walk around naked or towel in front. Important to first wash/shower. Sitting on bucket seat, soap, shampoo, conditioner available; bowl and/or hand-hose to wash. Then off to big baths of hot, cold, whirlpool, outside rock pool (as in picture), chairs to sit in sun, separate sauna room. Afterwards have a milk, yogurt drink and meet back downstairs in comfy sofa's w/ tv's. Very relaxing and enjoyable trip to experience Japanese experience. While really a local audience, the people working, visiting were friendly. Remember that Japan has 3 types of baths- local ones where historically residents w/out home baths visit regularly; mid-mkt like this one where locals enjoy spa like facility; high-end spa's where tourists visit-- try the local experience.
