Facade of Matsu no Yu.
Matsu no Yu is a nice, old onsen in the west of Oita city. There were two baths: a hot one and a very hot one. I didn't mind the temperature much. We couldn't bathe very long anyway: the parking lot we were parked at was closing soon.
The reason I liked this place is because it had many interesting details. For example in the bathing area there was a small stone table with two chairs. I also liked the fact that the onsen water was coming from the mouth of a sculpted lion. My wife said there was a tiny sauna (the size of a small fridge) in the women's changing room. Not sure if there was one in the men's area too. I may have missed it because of its size.
Enjoy the pictures:

Two baths... the one on the right was too hot!
No idea what the purpose is, but it looks nice.
