Fodor's Review

This is the often unbearably hot public bath next door to the yu-batake (hot springs field). You can't actually bathe here, but you can watch one of several daily yumomi shows in which locals churn the waters with long wooden planks until they reach a comfortable temperature. You can also sign up for a Yumomi Experience and try churning the waters yourself. It's about 20 minutes of churning and fairly tiring, but you'll be enthusiastically encouraged by local yumomi pros.
