Ohayou gozaimasu, hot water friends. 😉
I stumble about this specific onsen each and every time when I’m looking for a nice onsen to visit, even went there once or twice but – don’t know why – was always too stupid to realize that the landing point up in the sky isn’t the location of Amber’s onsen. Up till now that was. Today I finally found the TP to ground level and the onsen. Blind me. 8( Soooo…
Then there’s what I assume is the main onsen pool. But what a bad letdown this is: The anims are nice but the steam effect and “water” surface is pretty much very outdated. No atmosphere, immersion impossible. Soaking here ain’t no fun.
CONCLUSION: It’s nice enough of Amber to open her parcel as a public hot bath, and it’s even nicer to offer, like, two pools and a shower and a relaxing area with a cuddle blanket. But the execution isn’t very good and the atmosphere severely lacking. Not a high gokuraku rating from me, so unfortuntely Amber’s Apples & Kogami-kai Onsen ends up in the lower ranks of my virtual charts.
If I would be ranking SL onsens on a virtue or gokuraku system, which I won’t do. Too different are the tastes and expectations of the bathing patrons. Maybe there is the bestest dirty sex anim in that waterfall, and that alone makes a visit to this onsen worthwile. Who knows. For me, as a notoriously asexual but traditional virtual onsen user Amber’s Kogami-kai was not very nice.
