This onsen is large and beautiful. Many baths available at different temperatures, a spa (book ahead your treatments) and a restaurant. There is a room to lie down when done upstairs, which I wish I had done as I left completely wiped and not prepared to walk to train. The staff didn't speak very much English so we had some trouble to understand all that was available and proper onsen etiquette. Men and Women are separated, lockers available, but I'm not sure if they provide towels so recommend you bring your own. In case you go and have no idea what to do, you are to undress completely in the change room, find the "stalls" with showers that have a stool to sit on and a bucket for pouring water on yourself, then you can explore all tubs. I highly recommend this onsen. Very clean and large with a lot of things to do.

Men and women are on separate sides. You must go naked but no one cares. I was the o lu non-Japanese woman in the onsen and it didn’t matter a bit. Amazing experience. Relaxing after walking for 17km around Kyoto. Very close to the Bamboo Grove. Highly recommend.

We came mid-afternoon, place has both good signage and staff available for english speakers within to help you understand the process and etiquette. I ordered towels and headed into the sauna and spas. Sauna was awesome. There are multiple pools at different temperatures, and each were very nice overall. Massages were also available but didn't try due to time constraints. I highly recommend going here if you are in Kyoto!

Very enjoyable super onsen experience in the Arashiyama area. Multiple indoor and outdoor baths available as well as a sauna, where at certain times of day staff members will enter and fan you with a giant fan! The onsen water comes in filtered and unfiltered versions in the baths outside. Facilities were clean and well maintained. Additional services available include: massages, Korean style body scrub, fish foot spa, relaxation room, restaurant, Cremia ice cream and fruit juice. There is also a bar in the bathing area for refreshing drinks and ice cream. Food at the restaurant was tasty and decently priced. Highly recommend having a refreshing Cremia ice cream after the warmth of the bath. Entry costs are higher than a local sento but it is a super establishment after all. I could easily have spent the whole day there but the bamboo forest was calling me.

Made the trip to visit Tenzan No Yu today which was definitely worth it! Took 2 trains to get there from Kyoto but only took around 35 minutes. It was mid day during the week and there were quite a few people there but were the only foreigners on the female side. We hired towels, and you pay on exit which allows you to afd additional services along the way. There was clear English signage up until the changing rooms and then it became a bit confusing for our first time to an Onsen on what the correct etiquette is etc but the staff were really helpful. The pools were really nice and very hot, there are about 8 pools, one being cold. We wanted to get a massage but they were booked out until later that evening so I would recommend checking that as soon as you get there as we limited our time in the pools when we didn’t need to. Was a bit more expensive than other onsens we looked at but was still cheap for a good traditional experience. Would definitely recommend going and would love to go back one day!
