On the 30th of September, the interactive installation ONSEN opened at the Esplanade fountain next to the culture chalet. The collaboration of the Japanese artist Hayashi Yasuhiko and Latvian artist Aigars Bikše is a small log house where people can change before visiting the Japanese ONSEN hot bath. A wood-powered heater keeps the water in the fountain warm. The unique opportunity to enjoy a hot bath in the very centre of an autumnal city is available to any resident or guest of the city.
ONSEN will be open until the 12th of October; opening hours: 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
