As all outdoor baths are connected to a newer building, you need to walk in the hallway on the fifth floor where the lobby is in the main building to get there.

That will lead you to the seventh floor of the newer building, then you need to take the elevator in the back to go down to the first floor.

The hot spring water is clear(colorless), and the temperature is just right. However, as there is no shade, it can get quite hot in summer.

The tub is the largest among the three, and there is also a roof. If you do not want to get tanned, this is nice. However, the water temperature is not as high as other baths as it is in shade.
