This onsen has 12 different baths, all located in a forest setting close to a river. And because the ryokan is run by a pharmacist, two of the baths are prepared with special herb mixtures that change daily. One of the baths is prepared with a special mixture of nine herbs.
Web comments are generally positive. One states, "So many baths! Bubble baths, a personal-sized water fall where you can put your shoulder under and get a great massage, but the best was the herb bath, a Perilla bath. The smell was great. The temperature was also set differently in each bath. The problem with the outdoor baths was that you have to put your clothes on to get there. Once there it was so quiet -- and great."
Another writes, "There are four outdoor mixed-bathing springs, all located in the forest. It was excellent."
