Kurone Iwaburo

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
Located on the coast in Shizuoka Prefecture’s Kamo County, Higashiizu Town, this is a publicly managed open-air bath right on the edge of the ocean. Just as its catch phrase of “bathing in an open-air bath while looking at America” implies, the view is outstanding. One can enjoy bathing with the ocean at eye level, and it is a popular spot that attracts hot spring lovers from all over the country. One of the three bathtubs is exclusively for women, and it is possible to enter the bath while wearing a bath towel. From 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. all of the baths are women-only.
