“A 12-minute walk from Beppu Station. The back of the alleys of bamboo tiles filled with Taisho romance is an area with a nostalgic retro view. There is a communal bath that has been around since 1869. The original building is a bath with” bamboo roof “. However, it has been reported that the name of Takegawara Onsen was given because it was rebuilt after that and changed to the roof of “Rubber”.
The present building was built in 1935, and the gorgeous roof of Tang Feng Fuzou (from Fufu) is now a symbol of Beppu, who feels history. Tourists, of course, are often used by local regular customers. When you enter the building, the old clock with a moving tickle and the high ceiling of the lobby give it a taste of the early Showa era.
The hot springs are different for men and women, and the quality is different. You will feel a sense of liberation from the high ceilings if you are immersed in a hot spring. In addition, I also want you to enjoy the famous sand water. A sand bath is a spa therapy that immerses the whole body in the sand and steams it. The sand bath of Takegawara Onsen is a yukata and lying on the sand. It leads to recovery from fatigue and health, and after a hot water bath, the body feels lighter. It is recommended to stop by after taking a walk around the bamboo tile. There are no amenities in the bath, so you need to buy or prepare. Towels are sold as Takegawara Onsen original towels, so it would be good to buy them as souvenirs for your trip memories. The second floor of the building is not used by the general public, but it is a town public hall. It seems to be a gathering place for the locals. Here you will experience the hot spring culture of Beppu. “
