The distance is around 10 km away from the center of the Oketo, and restraunts, cafes, cafes, souvenir shops and convenience stores are not built. Oketo Park Golf Course (置戸パークゴルフ場), Kanoko Dam (鹿ノ子ダム), Yamano Aquarium (山の水族館), Oketo Craft Center (オケクラフトセンター) and Kanokozawa (鹿の子沢) are relatively near here. Speaking of the Oketo, Ningen Bamba Tournament (人間ばん馬大会) is famous, and is held in late June. * The ningen means "human" in English, and the bamba means "horses pull heavy sleighs loaded with a jockey and weights" in English.

The hot springs are sodium chloride sulfate spring, and are clear and colorless and have a little metallic taste and no smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 1.840 g/kg. The solid material dance in the hot springs. Shampoos and body soaps are provided at the bathhouse. A restroom and free hair dryers are installed at a dressing room. A drink made from vegetables named Yacon is sold at a resting place. It had a strange gourd taste. It is going to be closed on March 31, 2015. I think that is a real shame.
