bring a suit (or buy one) - loads of locals - follow rulesI had to buy a suit - looked like a 1920s bathing costume...but it was all they had in adult western lady size....not a problem - there were others covered head to toe including gloves and long "pants." Bikinis are not really ...appropriate. The pools were crowded with room for "only one more" - i like that as they (the locals) were friendly enough to help me out/give advice. you can rent lockers -b ut be sure to have 20 in coins to do so. some of the showers (the only place to change, btw, if you dn't want to change in front of everyone, smell overwhelmingly of urine. wash your feet (pour a bowl of water over them) before getting in a pool or you will be yelled at. NOTE: the pools shut down for 30 mins every so often so check your times or you will be standing in line with everyone else....a good time to get a plum icelolly.
Can skip it if you don't have much timeIt's neutral for me as it's just a huge hot spring except you stay at a hotel or resort over there and enjoy the natural hot spring.

Noisy and crowdedIf you are looking for a place to heal your aching muscles, this will help. However, it was quite busy and noisy when I visited and it was not as relaxing an experience as I had hoped.
Very interestingWent there to experience the hot spring. Stayed overnight, but the "Double-one" Hotel was not nice at all. BUt the hot spring is a sight to visit.
