When I visited Katayamazu Onsen six years ago, I stopped at the total hot spring which is a communal bath, but after eight months (April 21, 2012), the new total hot water was opened and it became a new facility, so we decided to stop by the total hot water (new facility). , It was built on the Lake Shibayama Lagoon, just around the corner of the Light garden. The appearance is a modern modern architectural style of glass, and it is far apart from the large hot water image in Nagano Prefecture. The old total water was a bit of a Japanese-style element, but it was a very drastic design (designed by Mr. Yoshio Taniguchi, a global architect). Because I wanted to dispel the old image that was originally called “Town hot Water” at the opening.
However, on October 1, 2014, the reason for returning the name from “City Hot Water” to “total hot water” is that “it is important to cherish the name of the total hot water that is popular with many inhabitants of a wide range of ages from a historical and cultural background, and to inherit in the future”. It was close to the hotel, and after check-in, the parking lot was full when I walked to the total hot water, so I decided to bathing and try again next morning.
It was a three-week holiday, so there were many tourists. The next day, when I got up at six in the morning and visited the total bath, there were about 20 guests in the bathroom, less than the previous day. I think most of them were local people at this time. The hot springs are everywhere, but there is a communal bath in the morning bath culture seems to be rooted in the bathroom as well as the modern look. The washing place is made of stainless steel and some trees are used. This is similar to the one of the new Swan Garden in Chikuma City, but I feel that the appearance of the facility is similar if it says so (after examining it, it seems to have visited for the inspection of the design contractor of the Swan Garden for reference. I feel like I’m imitating a lot, okay?
）。 The bathroom has a large window and overlooks the Shibayama lagoon at this time, though it was dazzling just to plug in the morning sun, the view seems to be quite good if the altitude of the solar rises, by the way the bathroom is even days, and men and women are replaced in odd days,
The other bathroom seems to see only the garden. The bathtub is an L-shaped, and it is divided into two bathtubs in the middle.
The difference is that one is deeply built, so the difference in the water was not felt much. The hot water is colorless and transparent and has a strong pain and salty taste. However, it felt slightly thinner than the light garden, and was felt the chlorine smell that was clearly the source is using the same source No. 2, it is the same circulation combination with hot water, the difference is that the amount of hot water and drug input, And, it might come from the difference of the number of bathing guests. Although it is not a good idea to circulate firmly in consideration of the large number of bathing customers, it is a hot spring facility representing the hot spring area in total hot water, This level of hot water is a little disappointing. In the old total hot water was divided the bathhouse in the hot water of the circulation combined with the general hot water (with disinfectant addition), but as a hot spring fan I wanted to have a similar correspondence If you look at the usage that comes with, because it does not matter just a little difference between the hot water for local patrons, this is good in communal baths because tourists are in a position to let the only put, you should not complain too much. I have to thank you.
