    This is a footbath near the tourist information center of Tsuetate-onsen hot spring resort. As well as the regular footbath, there is also a walking bath where the sole of the foot is stimulated by sand and stone packed into the bottom, as well as a rare hot sand footbath and various other types of foot and hand (finger) baths that can be tried for free. There are easy-to-use changing room facilities, and one can safely wear stockings or tights. It’s a great place for a rest while driving or walking.

    杖立温泉にある足湯です。いくつかあるなかのひとつで、かなり大きく、訪れた際は外国人がのんびりとくつろいでいました。広々としていて足ツボ足湯なんかもあり、湯上りも板の間でくつろげるような広さです。その隣にある稲荷神社もいいかんじです。

  • Kurokawa Onsen
    Accommodations / Hot Spring
    Kumamoto Aso-gun Minamiogunimachi Manganji Kurokawa
    A hot spring district surrounded by lush greenery sprawling amid mountains with commanding views of Mt. Aso and the Kuju Mountains. The area has gained prominence for its novel town renewal initiative which treats the entire hot spring district like a single ryokan inn-for example, Kurokawa Onsen sells a pass which allows access to every hot spring bath facility in the district called the Nyuto Tegata. There are several different source springs in the area with differing compositions, and visitors can enjoy bathing in hot spring waters with different qualities in different bathhouses. Another attraction of the area is the many ways in which you can enjoy hot spring waters here-in addition to indoor and outdoor baths, there are face baths which you can use to steep your face in steam rich in hot spring minerals, facilities where you can get healthy hot spring water for drinking, footbaths, and more.
