Kanawa Mushiyu (Ironwheel Mushi)鉄輪むし湯

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

Visitors to this municipal hot spring facility can enjoy a steam bath which involves wearing a robe and lying in a stone hut blanketed with medicinal plants as hot spring steam warms their entire body. The facility was remodeled in 2006 but its history is ancient, having been established by the Buddhist priest Ippen in 1276 and thereafter coming to be known as a health spa. The facility also features an indoor bath where you can wash away the sweat from the steam bath, and an outdoor foot bath which is free to all.

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.
