Aurora Farm Village
Aurora Onsen (オーロラ温泉) is a facility of Aurora Farm Village (オーロラビレッジファーム) in Shibecha town. In addition, there are some facilities such as cottages, a camping ground and view points at a site of 99.1737 m2. It is popular by people outside of Hokkaido and is rich in nature. Of course, a styaing is possible, and visitors can enjoy meals at a restraunt, too. It is also known for enjoying fresh moor hot springs and can be said that Onsen fun must go Onsen.
When I read Tweets, Aurora Onsen seems to be popular.

First of all, the visitors for a day trip pay JPY 500, an entrance fee to the bath facilities, at a reception of Center House and go to the bath facilities by our own cars. Bathhouses, a bathhouse for mixed bathing, a bathhouse for man and woman, are about 200 m away from the Center House. The bathhouses with handemade feeling make the visitors feel secret onsen. I took a bath at the mixed bathing open-air bath first. There is 1 mixed bathing open-air bath that about 8 people take a bath and it is surrounded by wooden walls and a half-opened roof. A forest is in front of bathers, and tweets of birds and murmuring of hot springs are comfortable. I enjoyed an atomosphere such as a hideout.
Then I went to the bathhouse for man in wearing clothes. There are 1 indoor bath and 2 open-air bathes at the bathhouse for man. Each baths are the size that about 2 people seem to take a bath. The hot springs of the indoor spa surrounded by stones is most hot and the overflowing hot springs from bathtub can be enjoyed. To prevent freezing by leaving shower running and I was interested in the shower at the bathtub. I enjoyed a moor smell at a closed bathhouse, too.
There are 2 open-air bathes next to the bathhouse for man and the bathers can go there without clothers. The open-air bathes have a sense of openness and the bathers can see a scenery of a forest and clouds in the sky. I was very relaxed and very comfortable.
The hot springs are simple alkaline hot spring with the moor hot spring, and are clear and dark brown and have tasteless and the moor smell. Those have smooth and sliperry touch. The sum total of hot spring ingredients are 0.260 g. Unfortunately, the hot springs are not drinking not to obtain a permission of the health center. Shampoos and bodysoaps are not provided at the bathhouses, so the bathers must bring those. A restroom is installed at the each bathhouses for man and woman. A hair dryer is not installed. By the way, there is an open-air bath for dog, too.
