Easternmost Wild Natural Hot Spring Place in Japanese -Aidomari Onsen in Rausu, Shiretoko Peninsula-
July 12th, 2014
Aidomari Onsen (相泊温泉) is the Japanese's easternmost hot spring place in Rausu town located in the Shiretoko peninsula and was discovered in 1899. This is a public bath for local fisherman, it is famous as wild natural onsen on the seashore, so many tourists visit. A bathtub seems to bury itself underwater by a storm. It is really great at the mercy of nature.
There is only 1 open-air bath. Hot springs gush out from the bottom of the bath. At first, the open-air bath is mixed bathing, but a hut is built in about July and is changed to bathhouse segregated to indoor bath for men and women.
The hot springs are salty hot spring, and are clear and colorless and have tastless and no smell. I supposed that the hot springs were salty, but I licked the hot springs, strangely enough it was not salty. Because there are no shower and amenity goods, Let's take a bath after pouring the hot springs on your body to washed off your sweat and dirt. In addition, bathers can take a bath in their swimsuits, but there is not a dressing room. There is a restroom.
