Kiwado Onsen

Area : Yuya & Heki

For a limited time, enjoy looking out on the glittering fishing lights in the bay from this daytime onsen.

This onsen is unavailable for overnight stays, but visitors can still enjoy lovely nighttime sights from the baths, like Nagato's famous squid boat lights on the bay.
The onsen's name, "Kiwado" (literally, "door of the yellow wave"), comes from a local story, according to which a sacred object from nearby Heki Hachimangu Shrine appeared from the sea, carried atop a yellow wave.
