Great hot onsen and dipping into you while looking at the waves on the rocks. Worth going there if you are in the vicinity. There is no shower facility. Do have a shower at your hotel first and bring your own towel. There are lockers...More

Saki no Yu is simple the best rotenburo I have ever visited. It was raining when we were there, and soaking in the onsen in the rain, watching the ocean splashing to the pool, the experience was simply unforgettable! Highly recommended!

This onsen is right on the edge of the ocean, so you can relax outside in the onsen and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Worth every penny!

This is the best rotenburo I've ever experienced in Japan. Three baths, with the lowest bath blocked from the sea by rocks. Waves were crashing into that bath.

I don’t think they check. Also depend on the time of the day. I would say during the late evening, it would be quieter and fewer people if at all.
