鬼の隠れ宿ご自由にお入りください

Your editrix felt durty and sweaty, so she decided to take a splishy splashy bath in an oiginal Japanese onsen. Unfortunately it wasn’t all that. :/

But look for yourself:

The entrance makes it clear aleady: Bathing in the nude is very okay here. 😉 I’ll keep my bikini on for PG and SFW reasons. 😉

The oni-no-kakure-yado onsen is located on a 1024 m² skyplat, which is big enough for the purpose and obvsly offers enough prims as well. So carefully I make my way through the warning screen.

A cozy little bar with lekker Japanese bento food …
… and alcoholic beverages is always welcome and typical for SL onsens. But notice how Orca’s floating like 20 cm above the upholstery?
This little Japanese devil is a nice addition to the setup.
The main pool: I hate the water surface, it looks very artificial. And I missed some steam particles to show that we’re in a natural thermic hot spring.
But wait, it gets worse! We can’t jump in the water, as the builder forgot to make it phantom. 😮 Now we’re again floating half a meter above the surface.
The onsen gets plus points for its hospitality though. Let’s feast! But first let’s complain about the wooden columns floating above the tatami mats. A little less sloppiness would’ve been good. Particularly for a Japanese place where you expect painstakingly placed prims.
This bank is a headscratcher tho, as it offers no place to sit. :/
My frustration with the main pool kinda disappears as I enter the natural pond,which is indeed steamy hot and also serves as a bathing place for the local munkees.
There are sit targets in the rocks,which animate your avie to do splishy splashy things. Them munkees stay totally cool tho.
Finally alone in peace and quiet. Only one word to describe this experience: Gokuraku!
Good sit target for the topmodels of SL. 🙂
Cool tatami mat with grapes and cheese … and a plethora of sexy couples anims. 😮
Dontcha lust love Japanese folk music? Lemme play you a song
Oh, a-ha! These aren’t really devils but just garden gnomes. 😐
Found one more posing rock.

CONCLUSION: oni-no-kakure-yado is a kinda nice, unpretentious little onsen setup with some cool anims but unfortunately many weaknesses that can ruin your visit. A pool where you can’t even get into the water is usually a big no-no. Add to that some sloppy positioning of buildings and the magic completely disappears. If they hadn’t the very handsome side pool, I’d rate this bath a fail. As it presents itself right now it’s in between fail and win.
