Hot Springs near New Chitose Airport Are Loved by Local People -Shukubai Onsen in Chitose-
April 7th, 2015
Shukubai Onsen (祝梅温泉) is a hot spring facility for a day trip in Chitose city and is popular for local people and hot spring enthusiasts. It is close to New Chitose Airport. There is the hot spring facility at a private house and bathers enter a living room and go to a bathhouse. I visited here at half past 13. It was before business hours, but I was permitted to bathe by an owner, and I took a bath. An entrance fee to the bath facility is JPY 350. At a business start, hot springs seem to be very hot and seem to get warm with passage of time. Shampoos and body soaps are not provided at the bathhouse. The bathers must bring those theirselves.
The bathers go to semibasement bathhouse from a dressing room. There is 1 indoor bath that about 8 people take a bath at the bathhouse. The hot springs are sodium chloride carbonated spring with moor hot spring, and are clear and brown and have neither taste nor smell. The fresh hot springs are used for water of showers, and it is a characteristic of the hot springs that the bathers can use the fresh hot springs abundantly. I drank a little, it had a mild taste. The hot springs were surely very hot when I took a bath at once. The effective temperature was around 45 C. Still I had been endured it and had been took a bath, I had a skin tingling with heat.
A local bather came afterwards. He said "Because the hot springs are very hot at this time, I always wash my body and wait to cool hot springs". Furthermore, the bathhouse for women of the hot springs seems to be hotter. In addition, there are no hair dryer and a restroom at the dressing room.
