Enbetsu Asahi Onsen
Embetsu Asahi Onsen (えんべつ旭温泉) is a hot-spring ryokan in Embetsu town located in the southern part of Wakkanai city and was founded in 1977. It features 2 types of fresh hot springs named Fujimi-no-Yu (富士見の湯) and Asahi-no-Yu (旭の湯). There are 2 bathhouses, Western-style bathhouse and Japanese-style bathhouse, and the bathhouses for men or women are replaced every day. At the Japanese-style bathhouse, there are 1 open-air bath named Fujimi-no-Yu, 2 indoor baths named Asahi-no-Yu, 1 cold bath and 1 sauna. At the Western-style bathhouse, there are 1 open-air bath named Asahi-no-Yu, 1 indoor bath named Fujimi-no-Yu, 1 indoor bath named Asahi-no-Yu, 1 cold bath and 1 sauna.
Hot springs of Fujimi-no-Yu are sodium bicarbonate chloride spring, and are clear and blackish brown and have a little salty taste and no smell. The hot springs of Asahi-no-Yu are sodium chloride spring, and are opaque and dark reddish-brown and have strong salty taste and a little oil smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 2.762 g and 17.23 g. Asahi-no-Yu has a considerably rich hot spring ingredient.
I took a bath at the Japanese-style bathhouse. As for the hot springs of Fujimi-no-Yu, because the hot springs had high alkalinity with ph 9, the hot springs had a smooth and slippery touch. It was rare touch. Asahi-no-Yu with fresh free-flowing hot spring had 2 baths with difference in the temperature. This hot springs were considerably salty taste and seemed to warm my body. Shampoos and body soaps are provided at the bathhouse. A restroom and free dryers are installed at a dressing room, too. A staying is possible, too.
