Takegawara Onsen

16-23 Motomachi Beppu, Oita maps/place/竹瓦温泉


Beppu municipal joint hot spring, Many people are fascinated by the onsen as a symbol of Beppu

This is a Communal bath that is valued as “Tradition we want to pass on to future generations” by local people. Enjoy this quality onsen’s retro atmosphere!

This onsen does not have a shower nor dividers like normal onsen but promotes an old-fashioned “communal hot spring” style.

Please wash your body before entering the bathtub. The way to wash your body is to draw hot spring from the bathtub with a round plastic wash basin and wash off your body.

In the famous sand bath, or “sunayu” in Japanese, you lie on the sand wearing a yukata while enjoying warm sand being poured over you.

Sand baths are very popular with locals and tourists from abroad and so it can be very busy at times. Going during times it is not crowded is highly recommended!

This onsen is not just a tourist spot, but a popular hot spring that locals enjoy on a daily basis. Therefore, it is important to maintain good manners and respect the local rules.
