Setose Onsen Hotel

Setose Onsen Hotel (セトセ温泉ホテル) is a long-established hot-spring hotel in Engaru town located in the northwestern part of Kitami city and was founded in 1956. There is a building along a road in the heart of mountains in Engaru. Because the road is closed to traffic at the place, it is just image of a little-known onsen in the heart of the mountains. The building has an atmosphere such as the Showa period, and visitors may taste the atmosphere of the little-known onsen.

When I read Tweets, Setose Onsen Hotel seems to be popular.

There is 1 gourd-shaped bathtub at a bathhouse. It is the size that about 8 peopel take a bath. Fresh hot springs flow freely. The hot springs are simple hot spring, and are clear and colorless and have neither taste nor smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 0.154 g. Because the hot springs had too alkaline (ph 9.3), it had a very smooth and slippery touch when I took a bath. Drinking hot springs do not seem to be effective, but the visitors can drink the hot springs at a resting place. It had a mild taste. The hot springs seem to be used the Setose beer and it is rare.
