Recent days, we can often see "Ashi-yu"（足湯） in sight-seeing place, mainly "onsen" area. At "Ashi-yu", people can enjoy "onsen" by entering their foot in hot "onsen" water. Last Saturday, I had a little bit interesting experience on "Ashi-yu".
That day, my wife took part in an event held in the city of Miyawaka（宮若） as Jazzercize performer. So, I took her to this place with my daughter by my car. The event name was "Miyawaka-hurusato-matsuri"（宮若ふるさと祭）, and it took about one hour to get to this place from my home.
This "Ashi-yu" was a temporary equipment that I had never seen before. I thought that it was interesting and good. I could enjoy it with free.
There is an "onsen" named "Wakita-onsen"（脇田温泉） near this event area, so the "onsen" staff demonstrated "Ashi-yu" for advertisement by using "onsen" water.
