This place is very interesting and great to see for adults as well as children. Good for sunny days. Refreshment is also available close the entrance. You are walking on wooden paths in hot steam water.

I had to visit it twice during a one week stay. It definitely worth the visit. Recommended also for family with small children. It is nice and short walk. You can walk through it even with a baby carriage.
