Located at the heart of Shibu Onsen, this bathhouse is the second of the town’s famous nine public bathhouses that are known for their therapeutic properties. Sasa No Yu’s waters are said to help skin conditions such as eczema. All the bathhouses at Shibu Onsen are supplied by natural hot springs that have different mineral compositions. Only guests at the local ryokans (Japanese inns) at Shibu Onsen can visit these nine bath houses by using a common key. Men and women have separate baths.
