It is a small town with 9 different onsen. Although there are many 'hotel' within the town, only certain hotels can allow free access to the 9 onsen. We stayed in 1 that has access to the 9 onsen and it was a nice experience. As it was a very small town, we managed to finish touring the town in half a day. We decided to do onsen during evening time as the weather is rather hot that day although it was supposed to be late winter. We thought it would be weird but when we started our onsen tour, many others Japanese have also put on the yukata visiting the onsen like us. As there are no rules to how to use the onsen, I noticed visitors usually do not clean themselves before going into the onsen. The water are also usually relative hot so it would good to test the temperature before going in and also adjusting the temperature using the cold water from the tap. Most of the onsens can only contain a handful of people. The smaller onsen at most 4 pax max seated in a small square pool. Water from the onsen are ok compared against other onsens I have tried as they are more for treating health issues rather than giving smooth skin. Is an interesting experience but also an awkward one whereby the changing room is next to the entrance door, facing the main road for some onsen.
