Near JR Beppu Station, the classic Takegawara Onsen dates from the Meiji era. Its bath is very simple and very hot; simply scoop out water with a bucket, pour it over yourself, and jump in! It also has a relaxing sand bath where a yukata is provided. You lie down in a shallow trench and are buried up to your neck in heated sand, followed by an onsen dip and shower. The entire affair takes about 40 minutes.
