Blessing of Earth Can Be Enjoyed -Sakurano Onsen Kumaneso in Yakumo-

December 4th, 2014


Kumaneso is closing a business now. This is an article before closing.

Kumaneso (熊嶺荘) is a hot-spring ryokan in Yakumo town located in the northwestern part of Hakodate city. There is a building along Nodaoi River in the middle of mountains. It was founded in 1966. Ainu people seemed to know the hot-spring place before. There are 1 outdoor bath and 1 indoor bath. Because there is not the outdoor bath at a bathroom for women, women seem to be able to bathe herself at the outdoor bath for men. The outdoor bath has a sense of openness, and bathers can enjoy a scenery facing the Nodaoi River. Temperature of the hot springs may be slightly cold in a winter.

The hot springs are sodium chloride spring, and are a little opaque and light yellow and has a little salty taste and metallic taste smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 4.067 g. Because the fresh hot springs flow all the time, the hot spring ingredients are precipitating on both bathtub and floor now. The bathers can enjoy molding such as Hierapolis-Pamukkale. Because I understood a touch of sands when I touched the bathtub, I admired a blessing of the earth was great.
