Yunessun

Yunessun

An onsen themed water park with slides, whirlpools and baths of green tea and sake!

Opened in 2001 Yunessun in Hakone National Park is more like a hot spring theme park than a traditional onsen; it spans 140,000 sqm. The main half of the resort, Yuutopia, requires all its visitors wear swimming suits. This does create a bit of a swimming pool atmosphere, but is ideal for families as the sexes are not separated, and a god send for those who are a bit shy! This area has 20 different baths: barrel baths, stone baths and pools made of Japanese cypress wood, as well as whirlpools and water slides. There are even baths of green tea, coffee and red wine; supposed to have therapeutic qualities apparently!
 
The other part of the resort, Mori-no-Yu, is a conventional Japanese onsen with indoor and outdoor baths and a sauna. Swimsuits are not allowed here.
