上人湯 (Shōninyu)

Address: 別府市鉄輪風呂本5
Open: 10:00 till 17:00
Price: 100 yen

Shōninyu is located in Kannawa's touristic area, near Jigoku Mushi Kōbō.



We had not visited this onsen yet, because it closes at 5. Or, actually, after 5 o'clock it's open for members only.


There is a small shrine at the entrance.

Shōninyu is across from Beppu mayor's house, where his family also runs a restaurant. This is where you have to buy your bathing tickets.


The changing area.

I like the style of the building. The name of the bath comes from Ippen Shonin (1239-1289), who is said to have started the custom of bathing for health in Kannawa.
