– Nifty Onsen editor-in-chief Yui Kawana general comment –
Shining Corporate Efforts, Efforts for “Cleanliness” of Each Facility I thought that newly opened facilities would dominate the top ranks, but the results of the ranking show the efforts of each facility. At the third-ranked Hadano Fujimi-no-Yu (Kanagawa Prefecture), the staff dedicated to cleaning take pride in maintaining cleanliness. It is said that they are cleaning well.
At Yokohama Natural Hot Spring SPA EAS (Kanagawa Prefecture), which ranked 6th, we changed the operation manual so that the staff disinfects every hour the places that many customers touch due to the corona crisis. Depending on the area, more in-depth measures are taken regarding disinfection and cleaning, such as assigning dedicated cleaning staff.
Yorimichi no Yu (Yamanashi Prefecture), a hot spring where you can stay in Yamanashi, ranked 9th. In addition to putting effort into patrols by the staff, the staff are free to bathe as a welfare program, giving them the opportunity to always see the bath from the customer’s point of view. They are trying to collect opinions. [Image 7d49786-92-04f15ae9d053e9fc5693-6.jpg&s3=49786-92-a39075293863b954f0971e76b7c85a33-670x502.jpg
-Cleaning by dedicated “clean staff”: Yokohama Natural Hot Spring SPA EAS (Kanagawa Prefecture)-
“Cleanliness” is the decisive factor in choosing a hot bath facility When we conducted a survey at Nifty Onsen before, the most decisive factor when users were looking for a hot bath facility was actually “whether the facility looks clean”. Due to the corona crisis, it seems that more and more users are demanding a clean facility than ever before.
At Nifty Onsen, we have installed buttons for user votes such as “cleanliness”, “food is delicious”, “sauna is good” on all facility detail pages, and the top three items with the most votes are displayed. (*It will not be displayed if the number of votes is less than a certain number.) We hope that you will refer to it when choosing a facility.
