Family friendly hot springs, popular with locals
Price: 500 yen
The Kirakubo Hot Springs are next door to the Hotel Tokinosumika in the Tokinosumika resort. The building is old, but the onsens have been maintained well. The hot springs, as well as the whole resort of Tokinosumika, are very family friendly. They have rest and eating areas as well as a small play area for children in one of the rest areas, where there is also a huge selection of manga for older children to read in comforable bean bags. The restaurant has a huge bay window which looks onto the resort and the glorious Mt Fuji. On a clear day it is a spectacular view.
In the ladies there are a number of different baths inside including a salt bath and a jet bath. They have a tub bath which Moms and babies can enjoy together. They also have plastic tub baths for washing babies in before soaking. They have lots of useful facilities for babies in general. Outside there is a large rotemburo, plus smaller ones including one in a cave. They have sun loungers on a mezzanine beside which there are out house saunas. There is a water fountain for drinking from for free, plus they have vending machines, where you can purchase drinks. The changing area has hair dryers and products for cleansing your face. There are coin lockers for storing your valuables. Guests of the hotel don't need a key, but guests who are just there for using the hot spring need to get a key for the lockers at reception.
During the summer and on holiday occasions, the hot springs open from 6 am to 9 am before opening for the main day. The main hours are 10.30 am to midnight. It tends to have a constant flow of customers. This resort is tricky by public transport, so I advise going by car where possible. It is 5 minutes from the Susuno Interchange of the Tomei Expressway.
