The one and only natural hot sand bath in the world!

JNTO

Mar 13, 2018

Hot sand baths have been a popular spa therapy for more than 300 years. It is just recently that medical research has confirmed that such baths help increase heart rate, elevate body temperature, improve blood circulation, and eliminate toxins from the body, thus refreshing and recharging the human body.

Here is how to take the hot sand bath. First take a rental “yukata” kimono, remove all your clothes including underwear, and put on the yukata. Then, lie down on the hot sand facing up. Hot sand from 50℃ to 55℃ is placed on your body, which makes you sweat in about 10 minutes. After leaving the sand bath, remove the yukata, wash off the sand, then take a hot-spring bath for relaxing.

In addition to the natural hot sand bath, the largest hot sand spa resort in this area, “Sand Bath Hall SARAKU”, has a large hot spring bathtub, a resting place, and an indoor hot sand bath that people can enjoy regardless of the weather. Why don’t you just drop in?
