Muranoyu Onsen

3-chōme-16-2 Ōmure, Ibusuki, Kagoshima 村之湯温泉


A famous hot spring popular with onsen enthusiasts

This age-old communal bath house with a distinct green roof stands in a residential area, around 3 minutes by car or 15 minutes on foot from JR Ibusuki Station. If you’re an onsen enthusiast, it is one of the places you should visit in the Ibusuki area.

The place was established in 1881, and the 4 spring sources in the site have been flowing for over 150 years. The place has a rustic beauty that is rich in history and tradition.

The long, narrow bath area has two bath tubs, with no partition from the changing area. The outer tub is a bit on the hot side, while the inner tub is more comfortable. Both tubs are filled with spring water from the bottom. The spring water comes direct from the source, with no added heat, water, chlorination, or recirculation.

The onsen is an alkaline alum spring that is rich in metasilicic acid, a natural skin conditioner that exfoliates and moisturizes your skin. You will feel your skin become smoother and more refreshed after a bath.

Rental of towels and other amenities are not available, so you have to bring your own. You should also bring exact change. If there is no staff in the reception counter, put the bathing fee in the cash box.

The bath house opens from 8 in the morning, so you can enjoy a refreshing morning bath. While it can get crowded with local patrons in the late afternoon, at night, you can take a bath in a relaxing atmosphere under the lights.

This place lets you feel the authentic charm and vitality of a traditional onsen bath house. Don’t forget to observe proper manners when taking a bath here.
