Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

This public bath is approximately a 20-minute walk from JR Echigo-Yuzawa Station and takes its name from Komako, the heroine from Kawabata Yasunari's novel Snow Country. While small the facility does have a resting room with tatami mats, a shop, and a display with documents from Snow Country. From the windows near the baths you can look out at the Yuzawa Mountain Range. Bath towel rentals are available making it easy to drop in empty handed. The spring water is rich in sulfur and calcium chloride with low alkalinity and hypotonicity and has a positive effect on neuralgia, myalgia, frozen shoulder, and chronic digestive illnesses.

Review of Komako no Yu

Reviewed:2017/05/31 越後湯沢の外湯
名前に惹かれ、平日の午後に行きました。越後湯沢駅から歩き、20分程で到着しました。内湯がひとつ、大きな窓で明るく、きれいな共同湯だなという印象です。雪の季節はわかりませんが、当日は地元の方とゆったり入ることができました。川端康成の「雪国」に関する展示が多くあります。
Reviewed:2017/03/11 意外と混んでいるお風呂屋さん
湯沢でスキーをした後に寄ったお風呂屋さん。

川端康成の小説「雪国」に出てくる駒子にちなんで名づけられたそうだ。
しかし、小説雪国に出てくる温泉がらみはここではない。

内湯はそんなに大きくないが、10人ぐらいは入れそう。
泉質はナトリウム・カルシウム塩化物で、いつまでも石鹸が落ちないような気がするタイプの湯だ。あのツルツルするヤツ・・・

駐車場はそれほど大きくなく20台ぐらいだろうか! 舗装し...
