Onsen Is Famous for Radium Hot Springs and Fried Cabbage Rice Bowl -Nanporo Onsen-

November 19th, 2014

Nanporo Onsen

Nanporo Onsen (南幌温泉) is a hot spring place in Nanporo town located in the eastern part of Sapporo city. There are buildings in fields. Retention basins and an observation tower are on the opposite side of the bulding of Nanporo Onsen Heart (南幌温泉ハート&ハート) and Heart.

Retention Basin

There is a wooden path which will be repaired in the future asround the retention basins, and visitors can take a walk around the pond. There are many wild birds such as a swan, a wild goose, a marsh harrier. The observation tower named Fukinoto Tower (ふきの塔) with 21 meters in height is built near the pond, and anyone can enter freely from 09:00 to 18:00 in a summer. I think it is interesting to look around Nanporo town with a bird's eye view. But it is necessary to climb on our foot.
