照湯温泉 (Teruyu Onsen)
|Open:||9:00 till 21:00|
|Price:||Adults: 200 yen; children: 100 yen|
We visited Teruyu Onsen on a Saturday afternoon and it was very busy. There is only a small bath and the water is quite hot.
I met a friendly local who spoke English very well. Because of his career in aviation he had not lived in Beppu for many years, but after his retirement he came back to his hometown. He told me that the bath is quiet on weekdays and busy on the weekend.
Earlier that day we visited Kakō no Izumi, but because you cannot use soap and shampoo there I ended up washing myself at Teruyu.
Forgot the story... It must have something to do with the bath.
