ONSEN HOT SPRING KISSHO NO YU PUBLIC HOT SPRING
Open & Airy Outdoor Bath
and Indoor Bath with a View
Our public hot spring Kissho no Yu offers a refreshing place to view Kagawa's beautiful scenery. The Sanuki Plains and Mount Iinoyama (also known locally as "Sanuki Fuji") paint a picture in the distance, clearly visible from inside the spa. The outdoor bath (women can bathe in the afternoon and evening, men in the morning) is nestled into Mount Kotohira, and the mountain's quietude soothes the soul. During the day, enjoy the dappled sunlight filtering through the trees and the bustle of Konpira-san; at night, the surrounding bamboo forest is illuminated with ethereal lights.
After-bath Lounge Space After a dip in the onsen, enjoy our gallery which features an original work by the famous author Ibuse Masuji. One of the most important early modern Japanese novelists, he created this piece with his traveling companions in 1939. They stopped in Konpira-san after a literary event in Kochi, and of course, they stayed at Kotohira Kadan.

TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE BANKUNMEI RELAXATION SALON
Beauty Sleeping Within,
Awaken the Power of Life
Long hailed as "the world's most feel-good massage", Thai traditional massage is an ancient art that combines principles of shiatsu, ayurveda, and yoga to refresh and relax the body. This therapy dates back over 2500 years to when it was first used for the Thai royal family. Therapies follow pressure points (called "shen") along the body's meridians, while the recipient is placed in different postures. Thai massage is known to promote healthy skin, alleviate fatigue, restore hormone balance, and detoxify the body. UNESCO designated Thai massage as an Intangible Cultural Property in 2019. Awaken the beauty sleeping within, and restore the body's innate life force.
