The name of the bathhouse ‘Carna’ is said to be a goddess of health derived from Roman mythology. ‘Carna-yakata’ is provided for both, room guests and walk-in bathers without stay over night, and therefore each side has different dressing room.

The large inner bathtub faces to the rocky mountain and an outdoor bath can be observed opposite window side. The artificial rocky mountain is a feature of this onsen.
