Shirasuna Onsen at Shirahama - towels? 2017/6/11 03:55
We are looking forward to mixed bathing (with swimsuits, as required there) at the Shirasuna Onsen at Shirahama beach later this month. Can I assume they will provide (or rent) a towel with the admission fee? We don't want to have to pack bulky items like a bath/beach towel.

additional 200 yen for towel:

Yes, you can buy this towel. But note that this is not the bath towel or hand towel. It will be the size of hand towel, but thinner than that you will find in the western style hotels. Japanese use this thin hand towel sized towel to wash body (of course you don't need to wash your body with soap here since you will have swimsuits on). This onsen seems to be for those who went to the beach and soak body in sea water and just want to remove salt and sand before going back to their home (or hotel). So the fare is quite cheap.

I am familiar with the small thin onsen towels. I'm not sure this will be large enough to dry off before changing clothes and getting on a bus (or bike) to train and then sitting on train for several hours to Shingu We are not spending the night in Shirahama. Is there also a shower to use there? Perhaps we will have to count on the sun to dry us off.
