A replete onsen facility in a town of ginger and masonry

This day trip onsen is located inside the Toyo Koryu Center Seseragi, a multi-purpose facility with a theme of nature, relaxation, and food.

The Toyo district of Yatsushiro City is located in the heart of the Kyushu mountain range, and is known as a town of ginger. It is also a town of masonry, famous for a group of stonemasons called the Taneyama Ishiku during the late Edo period.

There are warning signs in the entrance about intoxicated or tattooed guests, but you can enter the communal bath as long as you cover your tattoos with sticker sheets. Sticker sheets are not available for sale so you have to bring your own. If you have large size tattoos, you should use the private bath instead.

The spacious communal bath area features a main bath, a high temperature bath, a lukewarm bath, and a cold bath that is indispensable for sauna users. There is also an open-air bath where you can listen to the sound of a flowing river. Beside the open-air bath, there is a mist sauna that makes use of the hot spring source.

Except for the main bath, all baths are free-flowing natural hot spring baths. The onsen is an alkaline simple spring that is gentle on the skin. Try out the different baths to enjoy a diverse bathing experience.

There are also two private baths, both equipped with an indoor and open-air bath. It is popular with visitors who want to enjoy the natural hot spring in a private atmosphere.

After a bath, you can relax in the free rest area, and cool yourself down with an original ice cream made with ginger and tofu.

The facility has a restaurant called “Sunfururu” which serves set meals that include a healthy all-you-can-eat corner of local vegetables. They also have an original salad dressing made from ginger. You can use it on their dishes that feature ginger to enjoy ginger’s body-warming benefits.

The neighboring “Saitekikan” shop sells a variety of food products from the Toyo district. Besides the town’s specialty ginger, you can also buy fresh fruits and vegetables delivered straight from local farms, as well as organic tea and rice at affordable prices.

At the souvenir shop, you can buy popular products such as homemade pickled vegetables and sweets. The most popular item here is the ginger jam made with plenty of ginger and no additives. You should also try the ginger kinpira bread and the ginger pork burger.

Its replete facilities besides the onsen make this place a popular stop for many locals as well as repeat visitors from far away.
