In front of "Sabako yu" at Iizaka Hot Spring
mp3     WAV

When I recorded this soundscape in front of "Sabako yu", I heard women's conversation from inside the hot spring ceaselessly, however, I seldom heard men's vox. In fact, before I recorded this soundscape I took the hot spring bath. At that time, situation was not changed: I heard women's vox from off side of the wall constantly at the men's bath where men took bath silently.
Acording to the staff the "Sabako yu", speakers set up in front of "Sabako yu" is only used when an event is held.
