Enjoy the Two Sources of Spring Water

Large public baths with the panoramic view of the Hakone mountains and guest room baths surrounded by a vast wilderness.
Guests can enjoy the views and spring qualities of both baths.
Large public baths offer milky white sulfate hot spring water, which thoroughly exfoliates the skin.
Guest room baths offer clear chloride hot spring water, which keeps the skin moisturized for a long time after taking the bath.
Soak in the guest room bath after bathing in the public bath, and your skin will be silky smooth and moist.

Important Information for Bathing

Precautions before Bathing
(1)Avoid bathing immediately before or after eating and/or drinking. In particular, you should refrain from bathing while inebriated.
(2)When suffering from excessive fatigue, you should rest.
(3)You should rest for around 30 minutes after physical exertion.
(4)The elderly, children, and people with physical disabilities should refrain from bathing alone.
(5)Before entering the tub, adjust to the temperature by pouring hot water on yourself, starting with your hands and feet, and rinse your body.
(6)To avoid becoming dehydrated while in the bath, especially when bathing shortly after waking up, hydrate yourself by drinking a cup or so of water beforehand.

Procedure for Taking a Bath
(1)Bath temperature
  The elderly, individuals with high blood pressure or heart disease, and people who have suffered a stroke should refrain from bathing in water at temperatures of 42 degrees or more.
(2)Bathing method
  People with reduced cardiopulmonary function should refrain from immersing their whole body and immerse only part of their body (e.g., their lower half).
(3)Number of baths
  For several days after the first bath, you should take one or two baths per day, which may be increased to two or three per day once you are accustomed to it.
(4)Duration of bath
  The appropriate duration varies depending on the bath temperature, but in general, each bath should be around 3 to 10 minutes at first, which may be increased to 15 to 20 minutes once you are accustomed to it.

Precautions while Bathing
(1)Stay still while in the bath, moving your arms and legs gently.
(2)When exiting the bath, get up slowly to avoid causing lightheadedness.
(3)If you feel dizzy or unwell, ask for assistance from someone nearby, get out of the bath slowly while keeping your head down, then lie down until you feel better.

Precautions after Bathing
(1)Do not use hot water to rinse off hot spring bath water from your body. Wipe yourself dry with a towel instead, then after getting dressed, stay hydrated and relax for around 30 minutes. (However, people with sensitive skin may rinse off hot spring bath water with hot water as needed if it is a hot spring with a highly stimulating effect, such as an acidic spring or a sulfur spring, or the water has been disinfected with chlorine.)
(2)To avoid dehydration, hydrate your body by drinking a cup of water.

In order to keep the bath water clean, do not bring towels into the bath.
