Matubara Onsen Ryokan

Matubara Onsen Ryokan (松原温泉旅館) is a long-established hot spring ryokan in Chitose city near Naganuma town and was founded in 1908. The hot spring ryokan is known as one of most rich moor hot spring in Hokkaido by Onsen fans. A staying without meal is possible. I visited here around 10:00 on weekdays. Other visitors came at just opening hour, too. Unfortunately, it is prohibited to take photos at this ryokan.
