Tipping is considered RUDE
Tipping is considered rude in Japan and is not required. Often times, unless you ask if service is included in the meal, it is. The wait staff is paid appropriately and they do not rely on tips. Tips are even considered a slap in the face, if you will. Do not tip in Japan!!!!!
Nobori-gumo is a natural onsen. It has facilities like hair dressing, restaurant, massage service and facial.
I took the bus from the Keikyu Yokosuka Chuo station and alight at the opposite direction of this bus stop. If you are taking a bus from the Chuo station, you need to cross the overhead bridge to get across to the other side of the road. Take the bus at the Seiyu direction. However, if you are taking a bus at the JR Kinugasa station. Exit from the station and you'll see there's a line of bus stop in front of the station. Turn right and go towards one of the bus stops that will go towards Sano Yon Cho Mei.
A short 3 min walk from the bus stop towards Nobori-gumo.
Hohoho... going to have a nice hot soak in the onsen. No wonder the japanese ladies have nice and smooth skin.... soaking in onsen is one of the beauty secret.
This is the main entrance outside the Nobori-gumo lobby area. No photography is allowed after you entered the main lobby. Once you entered, you need to remove your shoes first. Then you had to put your shoes in one of the shoe lockers located on your right directly beside the entrance. A 100 yen coin is needed to lock the shoe locker which will be refunded to you after used. Proceed to the reception area to make payment for your onsen experience. You'll need 100 yen to use the locker in the changing room to deposit your clothings and the money will be refunded to you after used.
This is a view on the second floor of Nobori-gumo which is outside the entrance. Here, you can see the onsen is surrounded by houses. You'll hardly notice there's an onsen located in the midst of the residential area.
Bus no. 1,3,4,5,6,7,8,11 will stop in front of this bus stop. When you hear the bus announcing Sano Yon Cho mei, you need to press the bell and alight at this bus stop to go to the onsen.
