Futamata Radium Onsen Ryokan
Futamata Radium Onsen Ryokan (二股らじうむ温泉旅館) is a hot-spring ryokan in Oshamanbe town located in the western part of Lake Toya (洞爺湖). There are calcareous sinters with 25 m in height beside a building, and the calcareous sinters still grows up. It was designated as a natural monument by Hokkaido in 1965. This is one of only two largest calcareous sinters with travertine terraces in Yellowstone National Park in the world. Because such large-scale calcareous sinters grow up, a power of hot springs seems to be strong. In 1998, Mainichi Newspapers (毎日新聞) showed that the Futamata Radium Onsen Ryokan was one of 5 onsen (Motta Kaigan Onsen (モッタ海岸温泉) in Shimamaki, Horonai Onsen (幌内温泉 * closing) in Okushiri, Futamata Radium Onsen (二股ラジウム温泉) in Oshamanbe, Kunbetsu Onsen (薫別温泉) in Shibetsu and Usubetsu Onsen (臼別温泉) in Setana) with natural radium in Hokkaido.
There are 3 open-air baths and 6 indoor baths at a bathhouse. Because the open-air baths are mixed bathing, and only the bathhouse for men has the open-air baths, women may be embarrassed to take a bath. In addition, there is a pool near the open-air baths, and bathers must wear a swimwear to take a plunge at the pool.
I was surprised at the hot spring ingredients gathering films on the surface of the hot springs. Please watch a movie for such a look. When I touched those with my hands, it had a rough touch like sand. Those would crystallize. At first, I was excited, but the hot spring ingredients deposited at here and there, unfortunately novelty weared off. The hot springs are calcium and sodium chloride spring, and are opaque and dark reddish-brown and have a little salty taste and metallic taste smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 9.320 g.
Because the hot springs seem to be effective for all kinds of diseases, many bathers (people stay to cure their diseases) come to cure their diseases. Generally they took a bath while lying. It was only me to be in high spirits. The carbonated springs were gushing out, too, and were always free-flowing from a faucet. Bathers will take a bath for a long time while drinking the water. A person with taking a long bath seems to take a bath for 8 hours a day. Thank you letters from visitors are posted on a wall of a corridor. He came from China seemed to get better. If a sick person take a bath, it seems to be reliable that there is a chance when they get better.
Futamata Radium Onsen Ryokan has many rules in various ways and prohibits bathers from taking a bath in their swimsuits or covereing their body with bath towels, and the bathers must take a bath in the nude because the hot springs go bad. Furthermore, the use of soap and shampoo are prohibition, too. There is no shower, too. You should think about hot springs with native onen for cure not leisure. There is a restroom at a dressing room. A stying is possible, too.
Bath Oil of Futamata Radium Onsen is found on Amazon.
