The Soda Pop Spa
Lamune Onsen, aka "the soda pop spa," is unique both for its naturally sparkling hot springs and for its striking architecture. Designed by architect Teranobu Fujimori, the white and charred-cedar stripes on the building’s exterior create a notable juxtaposition against its natural surroundings. While the carbonated waters of the outdoor pool are cooler than most hot springs, the indoor pool offers warmer waters beneath a vaulted ceiling.
