This is the Dogo onsen (hot springs bathhouse), supposedly the oldest and most famous bathhouse in Japan, with a history dating back 1000 years. It is located in Matsuyama in Ehime prefecture south of Osaka and it is an excellent place to relax and have a break from the modern urban sprawl that surrounds it. The beautiful and elaborate exterior was the inspiration for the 'bathhouse of the Gods' seen in the anime film 'Spirited Away'.

You're capturing well this bathhouse by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the wooden old architecture and light. And, some guests draw out a good atmosphere in this image, too. Anyway, did you try to Onsen at here?
