Constructed in 1928 as a public spa house built over natural hot springs, Katakura Hall features nostalgic European-style architecture typical of the roaring 1920s. With two medium-depth marble pools lined by gravel, this historic establishment can take up to 100 people at a time, and its water has no smell of sulfur. Admire the spa house's stained glass and various sculptures, such as two human-size griffons guarding the exit, a small exhibition featuring an antique telephone, and a typewriter once used in the hall. You can order a meal or browse through a small gift shop. You can plan Suwa trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
Katakura Hall Reviews
諏訪市湖畔公園の道路を渡った反対側にあります。国の重要文化財に指定された洋風建築がいくつかあり、その中の一つに温泉浴場もありました。 昔ながらの日本風銭湯ではなく、珍しい西洋風に設計された建物でとても大きい湯舟は千人風呂とも言われています。 入浴料が大人750円、小人450円で10時～21時(20時30分受付終了)でした。 片倉館は片倉製糸紡績株式会社で一財閥を形成した片倉家が一般市民も利用できる... more »It is on the other side of the road of Lakeside Park in Suwa City. There were several Western-style buildings designated as important cultural properties of the country, and one of them was a hot spring bath. It is not an old-fashioned Japanese-style public bath, but a building designed in a rare Western style, and a very large bathtub is said to be a thousand-person bath. The bathing fee was 750 yen for adults and 450 yen for children, and from 10:00 to 21:00 (registration closes at 20:30). Katakurakan was built as a hot spring that can be used by the general public by the Katakura family, which formed a single zaibatsu at Katakura Spinning Spinning Co., Ltd. It's great for the citizens. I wanted to enter very much, but i was just in front of the student group after the club activity was going to take a bath, so this time I met. It is said that it is a thousand people bath indeed, but dozens of people might be very crowded at the same time.
以前から、話や写真で存在は知っていたものの この夏初めて訪ねて、その素晴らしさに感動しました。 古いながらも清潔で明るい千人風呂は、その至る所にある 凝った装飾を含め、是非、外観を眺めるだけでなく 「入浴」をお勧めします。 more »I've known it through stories and photographs for a long time, but i was impressed by how wonderful it was when I visited it for the first time this summer. The old but clean and bright 1,000-person bath is not only recommended for the appearance, but also for bathing, including elaborate decorations throughout.
