The Moku Moku Yu Baths, designed by Klein Dytham Architecture in 2006, is a timber bathhouse set amidst pine forest at the Risonare Resort.

Communal bathing is an ancient and venerable tradition in Japan. Using circles, the interpenetration of spaces serves to blur the usual division between inside and outside, and between male and female. Bathers separate by sex at the entrance for undressing and washing, but are able to rejoin again in the outdoor communal bath.
