2 Types of Free Flowing Hot Springs and A Lot of Overflowing Hot Springs Can Be Enjoyed at Public Bath -Notsuke Onsen in Bekkai-

March 19th, 2014

Hama-no-Yu

Hama-no-Yu (浜の湯) is a public bath in Odaito (尾岱沼), Betsukai town located in the other side of Notsuke Peninsula (野付半島) and has opened a business since 1987. It is famous for enjoyeing high quality fresh hot springs. It seemed like my schedule was always at odds, and I visited 4 times and my wishe came true! When I visited here around 17:00 on weekdays, 2 local people took a bath. But they went home soon, and I enjoyed myself at baths alone. A building and interior decoration are old, so it is not suitable for you if you do not like old facility. There are 2 open-air baths, 2 indoor baths at a bathhouse.

As for the indoor baths, one is the size that about 8 people can take a bath, and the other is the size that about 2 people can take a bath. The former of water temperature is 42 C and the later of the water temperature is 39 C. A lot of the hot springs overflow from each indoor baths, and the hot springs gather around a water outlet. Marvelous! The hot springs are used as hot water of showers.

As for the open-air baths, one is the size that about 4 people can take a bath, and the other is the size that about 2 people can take a bath. The former of water temperature is 42 C and the later of the water temperature is 28 C. Bathers can enjoy the hot springs and warm springs. Especially, the warm springs with 28 C are fresh raw spring without ading anything. A lot of the hot springs overflow from each open-air baths to a door, so I got a little worried that the door was broken. The sense of touch is smooth and slippery. By the way, I felt a sense of openness because there was not a roof.
