Sunflower Park Hokuryu Onsen

Sunflower Park Hokuryu Onsen (サンフラワーパーク北竜温泉) is a hot-spring hotel in Hokuryu town located in the western part of Asahikawa city and opened a business in 1992. There is the Sunflower Park Hokuryu Onsen in roadside station "Sunflower Hokuryu (サンフラワー北竜)", too. A building was built to represent Netherland-style building. A gate of dragons is a mark. There is Hokuryu Sunflower Field (北竜ひまわりの里) near the building.

There are 1 outdoor bath, 2 indoor baths, 1 whirlpool bath, 1 cascading bath, 1 medicated bath, 1 cold bath, 1 dry sauna and 1 mist sauna at a bathhouse. The ceiling height is 7.2 m, and a large space is comfortable to me. On the other hand, I did not feel a sence of openness at the outdoor bath because it had a roof. By the way, I felt that only hot springs of the outdoor bath was brown and hotter than other indoor baths.
