Hot Spring Baths at Sanrojo

You may bathe in the sacred onsen water of Mt. Yudono at the Sanrojo Mountain Lodge that is located right next to the massive tori gate. These baths are open both to guests staying at the lodge and to the general public.  This hotspring water is rich in the minerals of the mountains and the same water that is found at the shrine area of this mountain.

Please note that these are public baths and that there are no private bathing option here. See below for the two bath types of this lodge.

Natural Hotspring Baths

Enjoy the natural hot spring water of Mt. Yudono in traditional wooden baths at the Sanrojo Lodge.  These baths also have shinto shrines in them where you can pay your respects to the god of the mountain for this sacred water.  

The rich minerals and hot temperature of this water will leave your skin with a very smooth texture and is believed to have a plethora or health and spiritual benefits. This water is especially nice to soak in after a long day of outdoor activities on the dewasanzan.  

Guests are encouraged to bow in front of this shrine to pay your respects when entering these baths.
