Himehiko Hot Spring

Sparse, yet elegant. Welcome to Japan.

For children or those young at heart.

Spa accessories, not required as the water itself is the main attraction.

Tatami to sit on and relax.

Most spas offer some sort of refreshment for after the hot spring experience.

Himehiko Hot Spring

Truly refreshing experience. My wife's friends were delighted that I made it to a hot spring.

Green tea for after the soak.

View from the tilted window.

View down the hall.

Unique lamp design.

Himehiko Hot Spring

There are several hot springs in this part of Matsuyama. This one goes out of their way to make their presence unique.

A private hot spring experience is offered for a slightly higher fee.

Traditional Japanese bathing is required before entering the water.
