Global rating :   
On a stony beach, this rotenburo looks quite attractive when seen in pictures. What you don't see however in magazine is the huge concrete wall behind the onsen (built to protect the shore in case of strong waves), and the toilets plastic cubes lined next to the parking lot. Some efforts were made to segregated men's and women's bath, but no changing room is even available. The most interesting feature might be the ashi-yu (foot bath) next to the rotenburo.

Size :    
Not so large - further more, it seems to be quite popular among locals and can get quite busy.

View :    
View is pleasant (if you look on the right direction at least), with the shore in full view.

Modesty :  
The men's and women's baths are technically separated by a fence, but since it is less than 1 meter tall, it is obviously not sheltering a lot.

Area :      
Yakushima is a rather large island located south of Kyushu, and accessible from Kagoshima by plane, jetfoil or ferry. The island is registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List, mostly for its old forest covering the largest part of this mountainous island. Yakushima has a sub-tropical climate and enjoys relatively warm water on its shore; on the other hand, this is one of the most rainy place in Japan! Even though, most visitors enjoy walking in the forest, trekking to its summits, swimming in the sea or diving, and of course soaking in the onsen!
