As the second most visited hot spring among Shibu Onsen’s nine famous public bathhouses, the water at this bathhouse is said to treat women’s health issues. Shinmeidaki No Yu is Number 8 of the nine bathhouses that overnight guests at ryokans (Japanese inns) can access for free. Men and women have separate baths. The waters are naturally heated. Shibu Onsen’s bathhouses have been in use for over 1000 years. During the Edo Period (1603-1868), these grounds were used by the samurai from the Sanada clan.
