The Nukabira Onsen was discovered by Mr. Takami Shima (島隆美) in 1919. Nukabira means a human-shaped rock in Ainu language. When the Nukabira Dam was completed in 1955, the rock has been flooded in the lake. The Nukabira Onsen has been wel-known for all hot-spring facilities using "100% natural free flowing hot springs without chlorination", and declared "100% natural free flowing hot springs without chlorination" in 2007. I think that they will be confident of their quality of the hot springs. Almost the type of the hot springs is sodium chloride carbonated spring with neutral pH, and describes skin lotion.

    Hi, Lee San,
    I am sorry to hear about your trouble.

    I do not know about Nakamuraya unfortunately.
    So, it might be a good idea to ask Kamishihoro Tourism Association about the Nakamuraya.
    They can probably get in touch with you in English.

    I hope your wish comes true.

    Some of the Nukabira onsen accomodations are not linked to Jalan net, and this site and their home pages do not show their e-mail addresses either as if e-mails are big secrets. Do foreigners have to call them to reserve? As you might have expected, I am a poor Japanese speaker and not an excellent English speaker, either. Further, I expect staffs of those onsen hotels located in country side are not well prepared to communicate using English.
    I really want to visit Nakamuraya and tried to fill out on-line reservation application in its homepage written in Japanese. I had a hard time to complete the reservation and provide more information in the remarks section, but the only message I got is “Error.” i ws frustrated and tried to find out its e-mail address. Finally I eneded up here through Google search and found no e-mail address here, either. Hmmm, Would you kindly help me out before I have to call Nakamuraya directly with my poor Japanese?
