After Yajigayu Onsen we went to Yamagawa for their famous sand steam bath. The experience was similar to what we experienced in Beppu. Although the scenery in Beppu was nice, I liked it even better here. Another difference was the heat of the sand. In Beppu it felt like a warm blanket. Yamagawa Sunamushi was more like a sauna. I was sweating a lot at the end.

When bathing you have to wear a yukata. Men and women bathe together.
