Horoshin Onsen Hotarukan
Horoshin Onsen Hotarukan (ほろしん温泉 ほたる館) is a hot-spring hotel in Numata town located between Asahikawa city and Rumoi city. Originally, "Miraculous Water (奇跡の水)" was discovered at this site in 1928, and a hot spring facility was built. Hotarukan is adjacent to "Horoshin Dam (幌新ダム)" and "Ikoi-no-Mori Park (いこいの森公園)", visitors can enjoy Numata Fossil Museum (化石体験館), an automatic camping ground and a park golf. Fireflies are seen in early July.
When I read Tweets, Horoshin Onsen hotarukan seems to be popular.
