GOSHOBOH Hot-spring Bath
Goshoboh style, The KONGOSEN BATH
Half open-air & half men-women mixed
A dark and narrow passageway filled with water. Walking down the passage, one feels the water rising higher and higher until the passage suddenly opens up onto the main onsen “pool” which is covered, but opened to the outside, allowing guests to contemplate a green and sky view, while relaxing in the warm iron-orange waters. A stone wall divides the men’s and the women’s sides, getting continually lower toward the far end of the pool, facilitating both, friendly conversations over the wall, or a more private time. The specific muddy dark color of the waters, and the slight, shadowed lightening create a deep mood of relaxation, contemplation, and intimacy.
The hot-spring from deep earth, flowing for thousands of years, will certainly wash away any tiring worldly thought.
