Public Bath / Bathing Facility Spots in Yamagata Area

  • Warashi-yu Foot Bath
    Accommodations / Hot Spring
    Yamagata Pref. Obanazawashi Ginzanshimbata In the ground
    Warashi-yu is a free public foot bath located in the Ginzan Hot Spring area in the city of Obanazawa, Yamagata Prefecture. It is located along the Ginzan River at the entrance to the hot spring area, and as visitors soak their feet, they can take a look at the seasonal changes on the surrounding mountains and see the multistory wooden inns built in a Western style redolent of the Taisho period (1912–1926). The water, which is said to be effective against neuralgia, rheumatism, and skin diseases, flows directly from a spring, so it can be a bit on the hot side. The benches are placed with consideration for height and position, so that visitors can sit and chat leisurely with one another. The view of the illuminated townscape at night is especially recommended.

The onsen park also has restaurants, multi-purpose halls, Japanese style seminar rooms, and play equipment for children. The outdoor pool, Hygeia Beach, is open in the summer. The 150 meter rushing stream attraction, called the Splash River, is a big hit.

    高台にこの施設があるので、遠くに見える山々が綺麗でした。温泉に入り、その後、ゆっくりと休憩所で過ごしました。それを何度か繰り返し、体の疲れを取ることが出来ました。温泉と休憩だけを楽しむのであれば、最高の場所です。JR赤湯駅から離れた所にあるので、車かタクシーを利用した方がいいです。

    有室外湯和室內湯,可是不是真正的溫泉,只是熱水裡加了湯花。休息處有人抽煙,會漂到非吸煙區,感覺很差。

Yamagata Areas

around-area-map

Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
