3. Onsen and Sento around K's House Takayama
If you have no time to take bus or trains,

There are some good onsen and sento in walking distance from our hostel. (Or by free shuttle bus)
(*Sento 銭湯 is a public bath house. It is not naural water but cheaper than onsen. So It’s very local place, you can spend time with locals and feel being locals! )
