One of Lake Toya 8 Beauty Spots -Nakatoya Onsen Kimundo-no-Ie in Sobetsu-
April 11th, 2015
Kimundo-no-Ie (キムンドの家) is a hot spring facility for day trip bathers in Sobetsu town located in the east side of Lake Toya (洞爺湖). A building and Nakatoya Camping Ground (仲洞爺キャンプ場) are contiguous. Many campers seem to take a bath in a summer. A scenery from the Nakatoya Camping Ground is one of the Lake Toya 8 beauty spots. Tourists can look at Mt. Showashinzan (昭和新山), Mt. Usu (有珠山) and Lake Toya at the same time.
There are 2 indoor baths at a small bathhouse. There is 1 hot spring faucet, and because 2 bathtubs are connected each other, it is almost 1 bathtub. Hot springs are calcium sulfate spring, and are clear and light yellow green and has neither taste nor smell. It had a little smooth and slippery touch. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 2.676 g. The calcium ions has 663.7 mg, so it seems to be effective to cure wounds. Because drinking hot spring is not allowable by the public health center, unfortunately the hot springs are not drinkable.
Soaps are provided at the bathhouse. A restroom and a free hair dryer are installed at a dressing room.
