Sennin-buro River Bath Opens in Kawayu Onsen Dec 7
From December 7th, 2012 to February 28th, 2013, natures’ forces are adapted to create a giant bath in the river called Sennin-buro. "Sennin" means "one thousand people", implying that it is so large that one thousand people can bathe at the same time. "Sennin" also means "mountain man", or "immortal mountain hermit", a mysterious character that lives far in the mountains. "Buro" means bath.
Every Saturday from December to January, the bath is lit with lamps from 20 pm to 22 pm.
