October 2nd, 2014

Honbetsu Onsen Grand Hotel

Honbetsu Onsen Grand Hotel (本別温泉グランドホテル) is a hot-spring hotel in Honbetsu town located in the northeastern part of Obihiro city. There are an entrance for exclusive use of hotel guests and an entrance for exclusive use of day trip visitors. An entrance fee to a bath facility is JPY 500. There are 1 open-air bath and 3 open-air tub baths that bathers can take a bath while looking at a garden outside. The open-air bath is the size that about 6 people take a bath and the tub bathtubs are the size for 1 person. I let hot springs overflow from the bathtubs whenever I took a bath at tub bathtubs. This was comfortable!

There are 2 indoor baths that are different in water temperature of the hot springs inside. There are a bathtub with hot spring source and a bathtub with heated hot spring source. The bathtub with the hot spring source is the size that about 5 people take a bath and the bathtub with the heated hot spring source is the size that about 14 people take a bath. The hot springs are simple hot spring, and are clear and colorless and have neither taste nor smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 0.957 g. The hot springs seem to be drinkable, too, but I can not find a drinking hot spring facility. Shampoos and body soaps are provided at the bathhouse. A restroom and free hair dryers are installed at a dressing room. A staying is possible, too.
