海門寺温泉 (Kaimonji Onsen)
|Open:||6:30 till 22:30|
Kaimonji Onsen is run by Beppy City. It was rebuilt a few years ago and the building looks very nice and modern now. Besides the bath, it houses a community center. When we were there a karate lesson was going on.
The onsen is located in downtown Beppu and this may be the reason that it is quite crowded. Because many people were bathing I didn't have the opportunity to take pictures of the bathing area. The bath consists of two parts. One part has very hot water, the other is not so hot. Unfortunately the part that is not so hot was not very clean. The hot part was so hot that I couldn't stay in very long. It was a bit disappointing. If you are in downtown Beppu you may want to try one of the many other baths.
