March 10th, 2016
Raiden Onsen (雷電温泉) is in Iwanai town located in the southwestern part of Otaru city, and only Miuraya Ryokan (三浦屋旅館) open a business. An entrance fee to a bath facility is JPY 500. A kind old couple runs it. Raiden Onsen is cool name. Raiden Onsen opened hot springs in 1963, and it seemed to be popular very much in old days, unfortunately ruins has been outstanding in the hot-spring resort. But, a view is very good.
When I read Tweets, Miuraya Ryokan seems to be popular.

Miuraya Ryokan is built on a hill and there is Raiden Observatory near a building. This ryokan is popular as Shibui Onsen Ryokan. There are 1 half mixed bathing indoor bath and 1 mixed bathing open-air bath at bathhouses. The U-shaped bathhouses are small but cozy with the half mixed bathing indoor bath, and sex segregates half bathhouse. The indoor bath for men is conected to the bathhouse for women. Each indoor baths are the size that 5 people take a bath. This is known for using fresh hot springs without heating or cooling direct from the source, and it may be said that they are particular about the quality of the hot springs. The hot springs that flew from a pipe with burbling left an impression on my mind. Black calcareous sinter danced underwater. It is so good.
The open-air bath is not used in a winter. In addition, the hot springs were happened to be lukewarm for some reason when I took a bath. But I enjoyed the high quality hot springs fully. By the way, a shower is not provided, and I poured the hot springs on myself from the indoor bath with a washbowl because hot water would not come out of a faucet. The hot springs are sodium sulfate spring, and are clear and colorless and have tastless and slightly sulfur smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 1.630 g. Shampoos and body soaps are provided at the bathhouse. Because there is not a restroom at the dressing room, You should get a wash beforehand at the restroom along a corridor. A staying is possible, too.
