[Collapse]Natural Open-Air Bath Can Be Enjoyed and Sense of Openness Is Very Good -Shikaribetsukyo Onsen Shika-no-Yu in Shikaoi-

July 15th, 2016

Shika-no-Yu

Shika-no-Yu was collapsed by typhoon in 2016. This is an article before closing.

Shikaribetsukyo Onsen Shika-no-Yu (然別峡温泉鹿の湯) is a famous natural open-air bath in the heart of mountains in Shikaoi town located in the northwestern part of Obihiro city. It is used by many campers from July to September at the Shikaribetsukyo Camping Ground near Kanno Onsen (菅野温泉). There is a management office near an entrance of the Shikaribetsukyo Camping Ground (然別峡野営場), and campers pay a fee here. Bathers can use the natural open-air bath free, but there is a donation box, and the bathers can give a small token. A commno kitchen and a restroom are provided at the Shikaribetsukyo Camping Ground. By the way, this place has a bad cell phone reception.

When I read Tweets, Shikaribetsukyo Onsen Shika-no-Yu seems to be popular.

This mixed bathing open-air bath faces Yuyanbetsu River (ユーヤンベツ川), and a sense of openness can be enjoyed. The bathers can relax while hearing murmuring of a stream. There are 3 bathtubs surrounded by rocks, and hot springs of a large bathtub that about 6 people take a bath are just right and its temperature is probably around 43 C. Except the large bathtub, the hot springs of 2 small bathtubs that about 1 person takes a bath are too hot, and I was not able to take a bath. I encountered a rider from Fukui prefecture here and took a bath together in the buff. He told me that he had adored this open-air bath and admired splendor of Hokkaido. It was very comfortable.

The hot springs are sodium bicarbonate chloride spring, and are opeaqu and light green and have a little salty taste and a little metallic odor. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients is 4.391 g. Flowers of sulphur danced in the fresh free-flowing hot springs. The bottom of the bathtub is very slippery, so be careful. A use of shampoo and soap is prohibited because a water of the river is polluted. By the way, many horseflies come, so be careful, too.
