ASAHIKAWA

Asahikawa (旭川) that about 340,000 people live is the 2nd largest commercial city in Hokkaido, and has flourished as the center of the North Hokkaido area. Woodworks have been prosperous since the old days, and furniture is famous. Because water is clear, a liquor such as sake of Otokoyama (男山) and Godo Shusei (合同酒精) are famous, too. Popular tourist attractions such as Asahiyama Zoo (旭山動物園) and Biei (美瑛) are around the Asahikawa, so a lot of tourists use tourist bases in the North Hokkaido. As for a climate, the Asahikawa is located in Kamikawa Basin, the largest basin in the Hokkaido, so it is hot that temperature rises to 30 degrees C in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to -25 degrees C in a winter, and it snow very hard, too. So a winter festival using the snow is famous. Article is here

List of Day Trip Onsen

The visitors can take a day trip bath only at the 21th Century Mori-no-Yu.

21th Century Mori-no-Yu

21th Century Mori-no-Yu is a simple bathing facility for the campers, and a log‐house-style building is built in the very back of the 21th Century Woods. A building manager hut is built in front of the bathing facility, and is well-kept clean. In addition, a gazebo is built near the log‐house-style building. But a lot of gnats and flies fly in a summer. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.

There is 1 indoor bath at the building. As for water temperature on that day, the indoor bath for men was 39.1 C, and the indoor bath for women was 38.8 C. Those are suitable for bathing. The public bathhouse surrounded by wooden boards is not so large, and it is a little dark, but the ceiling is relatively high, and the bathhouse is well-kept clean that you would not think that it was free of charge. The indoor bath is the size that about 6 people can take a bath, and hot springs are always overflowing for the bath. I enjoyed the hot springs with an ample supply of water.
