February 2nd, 2014

Iwao Onsen

Iwao Onsen (岩尾温泉) is a hot-spring town in Mashike town along the Sea of Japan located in the western part of Asahikawa city and is famous as a setting sun looking beautiful. Because it is originally too called inaccessible land to hard to build a road near Cape Ofuyu (雄冬岬), buildings are built on sheer rock thinly. Please be careful because they stop a business in a winter. In addition, because it does not reach the hot spring standard, strictly speaking it is not hot spring. But it seems to be effect for Skin diseases and Rheumatism. Tourists can take a day trip bath at Sekiyoso (夕陽荘) and Attamaru (岩尾温泉あったま~る).

Iwao Onsen Sekiyoso

Sekiyoso is a hot spring ryokan built on a small hill and opened a business in 2007. There is 1 indoor bath at a bathroom. It is the size that about 4 people take a bath. The state that hot springs gushe out with big sound from a bathtub is very interesting. Bathers can take a bath while looking at a splendid scenery of the Sea of Japan through a window.
