Last month, I went to Yokohama on my work bus tour. It is a free action in the locale only by the transportation to say the bus tour.
There was no place to go, so I decided to visit the hot springs in the vicinity of Yokohama. The hot springs are famous in the region from Tokyo to Yokohama. Black Water is a spa that contains a lot of corrosive (humic acid), and as the name shows, the Dark One looks black (in fact, it is black brown). Most of them are cold cold springs, but there are many places where the spa is boiled and used in a public bath. Since I did not have a chance to bathing in black hot water until now, I took advantage of this opportunity to use the black hot water bath to get to the parking lot near the red brick warehouse in Yokohama City, so I headed to Kamata, Ota-ku, Tokyo where there are many hot spring facilities using black hot water. Minatomirai Line, JR Keihin-Tohoku Line, Route bus (Keihin Kyuko bus, Kamata Hommachi off) is a changed for one hour. It is quite difficult to travel in an unfamiliar city. The first choice of bathing is the name of Kamata Onsen. It is a public bath for the local people in the residential area because it is in the midst of a residential area, the place is difficult to understand, but the big Red Signboard welcomes you just before you go. Moreover, because the guest’s bicycle is lined with the railways near the entrance, it becomes a mark also when entering inside, the ticket is purchased because there is a vending machine first (the fee is 460 yen). The ticket is a method of receiving the key of the locker at the dressing room instead of passing it to the person of the receptionist with the key (old wooden bill type) of the shoe box (not a series format).
The dressing room is a little different from the old day spa facilities. In the bathroom, there is a railways in the front side and a bathtub in the back. The washing place has a shower head fixed on the mirror (without hose), and the Curran is a separate push type with hot and cold water.
This is a thing of the feeling of a public bath very much because the bathhouse which entered after this was the same form as this, it might be a standard in the public bath in Kanto. Well, the essential hot spring (black hot water) is used in the semi-circular bathtub on the left side of the bathroom. The bathtub is divided into two, the left side is cold water (about 41 °c), the right side is high hot water (about 45 °c). The color of the hot water is black as rumored, if you want to express clearly, the Dark Coffee (American) color or dark soy sauce color or transparency is about 5cm, so the appearance of the bathtub is not visible at all. I’ve been immersed in a lot of hot springs, but this is my first time to enter a hot spring that has a deep color.
If you want to pick a similar type of hot spring in the vicinity, it becomes the Sendo onsen of Tokamachi City, Niigata Prefecture, but it is not black so far, it is the type that is not seen in Nagano Prefecture first. Although it has such a lurid color, the characteristics other than the color are unexpectedly scarce, and it is almost tasteless and odorless and there is a sense of perisube. When you look at the analysis table, the dissolved substance 2, 335mg/kg of sodium-bicarbonate and chloride cold Spring (17.5 °c), so it is not a thick hot springs originally component. Corrosive (organic) 82.3 mg/kg seems to have the impact of black to this hot spring use of hot springs is unfortunately circulating (heating, with the addition of fungicides), but the good thing about the hot spring bath around here, If the faucet is twisted and the non-heating source comes out and it is in the point that it is possible to pour the half over, it is necessary to be careful because there is a possibility that the hot spring falls, and the local person might be angry. In addition to the bathtub, there is a bathtub in the right side of the bathroom. This bathtub is also partitioned, and it is an electric bath with an ultrasonic bath (Bibra).
The bathtub is not interested for me and the electric bath is not good, but the hot water temperature of the ultrasonic bath was pleasant at the suitable temperature, and it was unexpected that the hot water of the hot spring bath was suitable for the bathhouse in Tokyo though it was imagined without permission. The bathing was exactly lunchtime, but the customer was visiting without a scratch. There is a shampoo and body soap which is unusual for a public bath, and 460 yen including the sauna use is reasonable in the vicinity of Tokyo. If you are in the neighborhood, I also have to go to the black hot water that I wanted to bathing someday, but it was a really valuable experience. The blackness of the color was the impact as rumored, and was even moving. And the fact that I entered a public bath in Tokyo was an unforgettable memory.
