Ekimae Koutou Onsen駅前高等温泉

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

This traditional low cost public path is open 24 hours a day and is distinguished by its old fashioned, Taisho period Western-style green roof. The bathhouse has two types of baths—a lukewarm bath, and a very hot bath; the waters of both are distinctly thick and colorless. The waters are said to soothe women’s health issues, gastrointestinal disorders, and nerve pain. The facility also has seven private lodging rooms on the second floor and a large common lodging space for groups. Parking available. A two-minute walk from JR Beppu Station.

Review of Ekimae Koto Onsen

Reviewed:2017/09/06 Nostalgic public bath
Beppu Ekinae Koto Onsen is a nostalgic public bath. The entrance cost about $1.80, and you buy the ticket from a vending machine. At that time, you can choose either "hot" bath or "warm" bath. I...

別府駅を海側に出て徒歩3分くらいの左側にあります。
そのノスタルジックな建物は別府の温泉の歴史を物語っているとも言える。竹瓦温泉とセットで入浴をお勧めします。ホテルの露天風呂やスーパー銭湯に行くことはあっても、町の公衆浴場に入るという経験は、温泉地が地元の人以外はなかなかできない事。旅の記念と記憶のためにも200円払って思い切って入浴してみてください。

普通の銭湯と思うなかれ!別府駅のすぐ前にこんな素晴らしい温泉があります。中に入るとなんだか立体的な構造で楽しいです。お湯は2種類ありますが、面倒がらずに両方体験するとよいですね。格安の宿泊施設もあるようで、別府侮りがたし!奥が深いです。

Oita Main Areas

A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don't hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
