The public bath can be used at private!
We have two public large bathrooms. One is for men and another is for women. Each bathroom has two bathtubs. One is indoor bath and another is open-air bath. All bathtubs are filled natural Onsen water.
In Ryokan, Japanese people take the bath with others at a public large bathroom. If you don’t feel the resistance to taking the bath with others, please enjoy onsen bathing with Japanese.
But, the recent young people in Japan tend to dislike taking a bath with others. So we are permitting using the public large bathrooms privately. It is while 9:00pm-8:00am that private use of the public bathrooms is permitted. When you use the public bath, please hang the card that is given at the check-in.
