Sunamushi means you enjoy Onsen in the sands. Sands are warm, and you can enjoy the warm Onsen in the sand. After the sand Onsen, please visit water Onsen as well It has a nice view of Kaimon-dake.

My wife had looked forward to this for sometime, and we were not disappointed! The Japanese man who buried us in sand, was really funny and helpful. Beside being an older establishment, I have no complaints. Great memories and well worth the visit.

It was a wonderful, lovely experience, but I only had one regret. Apparently the ground heat together with the burning summer sun, you cannot enjoy the sand bath at the beach because its too hot. I end up enjoying the sand bath under a tent far away from the beach. But it was a really enjoyable nonetheless. Next time, I'll... More

We went here to try out the sand bath. In a sand bath you get covered with sand that is heated through hot springs. At this place this is done on the beach. You lie down on the sand and they cover you with sand. There is also a normal Japanese hot bath (Onsen). The Onsen is on top of... More

Take a train just a little farther than the famous but crowded and expensive Ibusuki. There is a small and beautiful fishing town next to Ibusuki which also offers sand hot spring. Not famous like Ibusuki. Inexpensive and not crowded at all. No big group tours in tour buses will go there. You will feel like you own this place.... More

We decided to visit this particular sandbath as it appeared to be a very local place. Indeed it was! The entrance to this place is all but glamorous. However once you step into the reception, one is given a warm greeting and every effort was made by the counter staff to communicate with us (sign language; point at clock etc)... More
