Cold Springs Can Be Enjoyed at Historical Onsen Ryokan -Umaoi Onsen in Naganuma-

July 8th, 2017

Umaoi Onsen Ryokan

Umaoi Onsen Ryokan (馬追温泉旅館) is a long-established onsen ryokan in the southeastern part of Sapporo and was founded by Mr. Ichiemon Niiro (新納市衛門) in 1908. There is a trailhead for Mt. Chokanzan (長官山) near the building, and it is surrounded by a lot of green plants. Cherry blossoms can be enjoyed in a spring, and fall foliage can be enjoyed in an autumn, too. The appearance and the interior decoration of the building is very shibui, and it has a historical atmosphere.

There is 1 indoor bath at a bathroom. The bathroom is not so large but cozy. The indoor bath is the size that about 4 people can take a bath. The water temperature of cold spring source is 7.0 C, so the cold spring is heated. I felt the water temperature was about 42 C. This felt good! About 15 L/min of the cold springs seem to gush out, and ample hot springs are not provided. This indoor bath dose not use the fresh free flowing hot springs, but faucets (カラン) use the fresh cold springs. When I pushed a faucet, it smelled a slightly sulfurous smell, and the cold hot springs came out. I licked those, and it tasted like a slightly boiled egg.

The hot springs are simple sulfur spring, and are clear and colorless and have tasteless and a slightly sulfur smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 0.282 g. The hot springs seem to be drinkable, but there is not a drinking hot spring facility. The fresh cold spring seemed to come from a faucet of a washstand at a dressing room, and I drinked it, As expected, it tasted like a slightly boiled egg. It seems to be effective for Diabetes, Gout and Constipation. Soaps are provided at the bathroom. A shower is not installed, so you must pour the hot springs on yourself to rinse off your surface dirt and sweat before entering the bath. A hair dryer is installed at the dressing room. There is not a restroom at the dressing room, so you should get a wash beforehand at the restroom along a corridor. A staying is possible, too.
