Very Good View from Open-air Bath -Shakotan Onsen Misaki-no-Yu Shakotan-
June 15th, 2015
Misaki-no-Yu Shakotan (岬の湯しゃこたん) is a hot spring facility in Shakotan Peninsula and started a business in 2002. There is a building on a hill near Cape Kamui (神威岬). It is known for having a good view from an open-air bath. The setting sun in particular seems to look beautiful. An entrance fee to the bath facility for adult is JPY 610. By the way, photography was prohibited at the bathhouse and the dressing room. Bad luck!
There are 2 open-air baths, 2 indoor baths, 1 whirlpool bath, 1 cold bath and 1 sauna at a bathhouse. Because it is famous for having the good view from the open-air bath, it has a sence of openness very much. You will lose nothing even if you come to enjoy this comfortableness.
When I read Tweets, Misaki-no-Yu Shakotan seems to be popular.

Hot springs are sodium chloride carbonated spring, and are clear and colorless and have salty taste and no smell. It tasted very salty when I licked the hot springs. Unfortunately, the hot springs are not drinkable. Shampoos and body soaps are provided at the bathhouse. A restroom and free hair dryers are installed at a dressing room.
