In connection with this history, the interior design incorporates elements of Nagasaki culture, which is a combination of Japanese, Chinese and Dutch cultures that have developed as various people and cultures came and went.

For example, the public bath uses stained glass, a glass craft from the Netherlands. Enjoy a relaxing time at this hot spring inn where the culture of Nagasaki is present.
