Mimata Hot Spring Kokumin Hoyou Center


Mimata is the one of the most famous hot springs in Shimane. It has been used for over 150 years. It is claimed that the water from this hot spring makes you beautiful! Could this be why Shimane women win the best complexions in the country contest every year?

The hot water is alkali, so it works as a mild soap. When you get into this hot spring, the water becomes slippery, and it feels very hydrating. You can actually buy some cosmetics made from the water. You can also enjoy a sauna here.

The price costs 2,700~ 3,200 yen for four hours per room. Therefore, you can enjoy your rest privately!
