  • This is the Hirauchi Kaichuu Onsen, sometimes translated as the Hirauchi submarine hot spring. It is inundated by sea water during high tides and you need to know the tide schedule. Can you imagine...  more »
  • Relaxed and fun outdoor onsen with beautiful views. Ideal for couples as it's rare to be able to enter onsen together in Japan. It was also good for my partner who has tattoos and is unable to enter.....  more »

  • Feeling hot hot hot. Went on a Saturday at midday (2 hrs before low tide) in September. Sun was shining, no breeze. Middle pool is quite hot, two side pools mix with sea water for a warm experience. Pool on the right when facing the sea has some sharp rocks and flat rocks are slippery. Was painful walking there! Pool on the left is flat rocks, all quite slippery, easier to walk in. It's a fun experience! Love the location, when we got there it was just us, quickly filled with people (all men) over the first hour. It was hot in the baths and when I got out rather than feeling like the air was cool, the noonday sun, hot rocks on the ground, and no breeze meant I kept getting hotter and hotter. No shade and no coolness to be found nearby! Would come back in evening or early morning when that fits the tidal schedule to avoid the noonday sun! As other reviews mention: Only open 2hrs before low tide, 200¥ pp, naked and mixed gender!
  • Great spot to stop while on a cycle ride. Rented a towel, rinsed off with a fresh water hose down right side of ramp. Super awesome natural hot spring. One pool is very hot!! It’s open for both male and female. No swimsuit allowed. Use a towel to cover up if shy.
