Hanazawa Onsen Simplified Public Bathhouse

Hanazawa Onsen Simplified Public Bathhouse is a public bathhouse opened a buisness in 1997, and is well-known for enjoying 100% natural free flowing hot springs, and is popular with local people. Although I visited here 2 times, the first visit was Tuesday (regular closing day), and a parking lot was filled with cars the second visit, so I gave up taking a bath. A building was renwed in December 2017. Simplified Public Bathhouse was the perfect word to describe the former building, But the new building is unsuitable for the Simplified Public Bathhouse after renewing, the public bathhouse is very fine. An entrance fee to the bath facility is JPY 200.

There are 1 outdoor bath and 2 indoor baths at a public bathhouse. The tiled bathhouse is small but cozy. Water temperature of the indoor baths are 43 C and 39 C. The indoor bath with 39 C is newly established because Hokkaido Shinbun Press says that former indoor bath was too hot. Therefore the indoor baths may use 100% natural free flowing hot springs or free flowing hot springs adding water.
