I went at the end of the day, just before it was closing. It was so warm in the baths and so chilled out. There are three to choose from. The sound and view of the waves is so relaxing, it does get boring after a little while on your own. Also bring a towel and the entry fee. No... More

Saki no Yu is simple the best rotenburo I have ever visited. It was raining when we were there, and soaking in the onsen in the rain, watching the ocean splashing to the pool, the experience was simply unforgettable! Highly recommended!

This onsen is right on the edge of the ocean, so you can relax outside in the onsen and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Worth every penny!

There are three bath tubs: highest - wooden one and other two are rock baths (for men only two, without wooden one). Great experience! You can really... More

This is the best rotenburo I've ever experienced in Japan. Three baths, with the lowest bath blocked from the sea by rocks. Waves were crashing into that bath.
