Hiorayu no yu (Onsen)!!

There is a onsen at the Hirayu folk village.

You can see Gassho houses and take a rest there.

 It is separate types of onsens, just outside.

Please pour water over your body and get used to the temperature before entering the tub.

When your body warms up, step out your upper body or wrist for breaks
 because soaking for too long would make you dizzy.

Enjoy Onsening!!
