May 12th, 2014

Hamamasu Onsen

Hamamasu Onsen (浜益温泉) is a hot spring place in Ishikari city along the Sea of Japan. Only Hamamasu Recreation Center (浜益保養センター) surrounded by tree is built along Shokan Natinal Route (National Route 451), and a walk course and a park golf course are built around it, too. Kawashimo Seaside Campsite (川下海浜キャンプ場) and Kawashimo Bathing Beach (川下海水浴場) is relatively near here. The distance is around 70 km far away from the center of the Ishikari, and a convenience store is not built around here. Famous tourists attractions around here are Shiragane Falls (白銀の滝) and Cherry Blossom of Toda Memorial Park Cemetery (戸田記念墓地公園の桜). In addition, tasty restaurants around here are particularly Fujimi (ふじみ), Ripple (リップル), Kanetomo Sushi (かねとも寿し), Lyceenne (リセンヌ). I ate a bean-jam pancake at the Fujimi, and it was tasty.

The open-air bath is the size that about 20 people can take a bath, and uses heated hot springs with adding water. It is surrounded by blindfold fences, so a view is not good. But a sense of openness can be felt without a roof. It is unusual public bath that wash places are set at the outside, too. The open-air bath is closed in the winter.
