Kaga Yamashiro Onsen Ko-Soyu (Old Public Bathhouse)加賀山代温泉 古総湯

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

Located in Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture, Kaga Yamashiro Onsen Ko-Soyu (Old Public Bathhouse) is an experiential-type museum where visitors can experience and enjoy the history and culture of Japan’s onsen (hot springs) tradition. It recreates an example of the “Soyu” public baths that were common in onsen areas in Japan during the Edo period. Besides admiring the authentic external and internal decor, visitors can also experience the traditional “Yuami” method of hot springs bathing, which involved simply soaking in the waters of the hot springs. The stained glass inside the bathhouse and the Kutani-ware wall- and floor-tiles faithfully recreate what this type of public bathhouse looked like in the past. Let’s enjoy the onsen tradition along with the historical atmosphere of the nearby streets with their shops and Ryokan inns known as the “Yu-no-gawa.”

Ishikawa Main Areas


Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
