Ibusuki is known in Japan for its sand baths, wherein visitors are buried in a naturally heated sand. The most popular is the Saraku Sand Bath Hall, a 5 minute ride from Ibusuki Station. It is the sand bath that is most recommended to travelers because of its large facilities, indoor baths and a nice spot for relaxation. Here, you have different choices: the Sand Bath Hot Spring, the Sand Steamed Hot Spring, or the bath in the water's edge. The latter is most enjoyed during low tide.
Rejuvenate and relieve yourself in this relaxing natural sand bath. Once you buy your ticket in the entrance, you will be given a Yukata (Cotton Kimono) to wear inside the premises. There are designated attendants to help you cover yourself in the sand baths. After enjoying the warm sand, you can wash your body and at the same time relax in the water bath inside the hall.
From the Ibusuki Station, the Saraku Sand Bath Hall is just a 15-minute walk away.
The Saraku Sand Bath Hall opens at 8:30 to 21:00. The tickets for the sand bath cost 1080 yen and 610 yen for the hot spring bath only. Sand steamed commemorative towel is also available for 120 Yen.
