Observe and try rich, age-old practices at Netsunoyu. Centered around an ancient onsen, which produces hot spring water at a temperature too high to bathe in, the people here would cool the water by stirring it with large paddles in a ritualistic song and dance routine. Here, you'll get to witness and take part in the practice, picking up a paddle and having a go yourself. Consider arriving early, as this activity is popular with tourists, so you can expect to queue to get in.
