Here is the entrance to the main bath.
I'm not quite sure why they put up the shimenawa (straw rope). Usually these are present at holy Shinto sites. Perhaps because it looks "Japanese"? In fact, this whole gate looks more like a temple entrance than a bath entrance. Tourists probably can't tell the difference.
