Nobori-gumo Onsen: A hidden gem for onsen lovers
When we talk about onsen we'll think of Hakone. I was staying around Kurihama and it takes a few hours of train ride to reach Hakone. I was very lazy to travel so far just to soak in the onsen and then travel back. I was surprised when I found out that there is an onsen in Yokosuka city and not many locals know about the existence of this onsen too.
You can either take a bus from JR Kinugasa station or Keikyu Yokosuka Chuo station to reach the onsen. It is only a few bus stops away from both the train station. The bus stops at Sano Yong-Cho-Mei and you walk about 5 mins from the bus stop to the onsen. Nobori-gumo has both indoor and outdoor onsen and they have seperate onsens for male and female only.
The entrance fee is 1000yen(adult) and the operating hours is from 9am to 12.00am (last entry is before 11.00pm). If you didn't bring any towel, they have towel rental for 100yen/pc. They provide shampoo, hair conditioner, soap and hair dryer.
