Takayu Onsen Public Bath Attakayu

Attakayu Public Onsen 25 Takayu, Machiniwasaka, Fukushima City, Fukushima Prefecture


Visitors can experience a real hot spring with a 100% pure spring!

Takayu hot spring is famous as a hot spring resort where 2,956 liters per minute spontaneously flows, and visitors enjoy the source of sulfur hot springs with high medicinal properties.

It is located in a quiet mountain village surrounded by the Azuma mountain ranges, and is a community with a small but unique policy.

Hot springs have a history of 400 years, “if we do not keep the mountain’s natural environment, no natural hot spring water will come out,” and so Takayu Onsen continues to preserve the natural environment throughout the hot spring town, all the hot spring baths in the district don’t add water and they keep the idea of “a real pure hot spring” stubbornly.

“Attaka-yu” is a communal bath opened in 2003 at the center of Takayu hot-spring town (a day-trip hot-spring facility managed in the area). Visitors can enjoy the ultimate natural hot spring without any changes or adding.

Peppermint green milky hot water is called “a hot spring supplement” because it is rich in metasilicic acid, is gentle on the skin, and is good for beautiful skin and health care, even though it is  high acidity value of ph 2.7.

There are three baths, a male bath, a female bath, and a rental bath. It is all semi-open-air bath to prevent hydrogen sulfide gas from accumulating in the bathroom. People who wear large tattoos and those who care about others’ eyes are recommended to use the private bath.

Charged baths correspond to barrier-free, steps are also small from the entrance to the bathtub, and a lot of handrails are installed. Wheelchair access is also possible.

There are no soap and shampoo in the bathroom and there are no hairdryers in the dressing room, as it is impossible to install them in the showers due to legal problems. Bring soap and rinse off the body before entering the bathtub, and visitors’d better avoid washing the hair. Please bring your own towels as well.

The bathing fee is just 250 yen! In the vicinity there is also the “Attaka Onsen Park” which is best for cool down after bathing. Hot springs are sprinkling gladly in the pond of the park.

A good spa is “a place of mind and body regeneration” that enhances immunity and living ability. People gather at the hot springs with laughs, tears, encounters, and separation for almost 400 years! When thinking that a lot of people have been involved, words can not be put to show the feelings.
