Onsen Ryokan Ikoiso (温泉旅館いこい荘) is a hot-spring ryokan on the shore of the Lake Toya (洞爺湖) and on the foot of Mt. Usu (有珠山) and was founded in 1960s. Interior decoration has the warmth of the wood. A bathroom is provided near an entrance and is not so large. There is 1 indoor bath that about 4 people can take a bath at a bathroom. It is known as free flowing fresh hot springs. The light green hot springs catch my eyes. A door was provided at a window, so I thought that an outdoor bath was provided. But there was not the outdoor bath.
