Today, I visited Yunohana hot spring resort in Minamiaizu Town. This is located near the starting point of Mt. Tashiro trail. I stayed here tonight heading for the mountain tomorrow morning. There are four public baths open to any visitors. Ishiyu pubic bath shown above is one of them with mixed bathing. I happened to bathe together with a local elderly woman who was 93 years old. She told me that this Ishiyu Bath is the best out of four and that she had kept her health with daily bathing without any doctor.

The second public bath was Tenjin-no-yu Bath as shown above. This was also a mixed bathing type, but this time I was the only one. The main bath was too hot to soak into, but the small one was moderate.

The third one was Yubata-no-yu Bath as shown above. This public bath was a separate type for men and women each.

And the last one was Koubo-no-yu as shown above. This was also a separate type with shower facility.

All the public baths use hot spring water which naturally wells up by itself, with no water being added, nor heating, nor any artificial things being added, nor water circulation, as the description above shows. They were really excellent hot spring baths.

To get to Yunohana Onsen (=hot spring resort), you can take a local bus from Aizutajima Station of Aizu Railway as shown above to Yunohanashimo Bus Stop.

I stayed at a private inn called Kitanoya which had an old dining house with thatched roof as shown above. The landlady was a smart and friendly woman. She prepared us delicious soba noodles.
