Yumomi (湯もみ) is a traditional method of cooling down hot spring water to bathing temperature by stirring the water with large wooden paddles. The process is accompanied by the singing of a local folk song.

A yumomi performance for tourists is held daily in the Netsunoyu Bath House just next to the yubatake. The performance includes a yumomi and dance performance, and several people from the audience have the opportunity to partake in yumomi.
