Awabisanso (あわび山荘) is a hot-spring hotel in Taisei ward, Setana town located in the northwestern part of Hakodate city and is famous for enjoying an abalone dish. A building is old, but it has a cleanliness because it is cleaned well.
There are 1 outdoor bath, 1 indoor bath and 1 sauna at a bathhouse. The outdoor bath is the size that about 6 people take a bath. A gazebo is built on the outdoor bath. Actually, Kaitorima River (貝取間川) flows in fron of bather's eyes, but unfortunately, the river can not be seen with cutting off a front view by trees. The indoor bath is the size that about 20 peopel take a bath, and the bathers can bath comfortably. Fresh free flowing hot springs powerfully flow towards an outlet. Hot spring ingredients petrified on the surface of rock bathtub and grew a nice shape.
The hot springs are sodium chloride carbonated spring, and are opaque and reddish brown and have salty taste and no smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 2.154 g. Unfortunately, the hot springs are not drinkable. Red flowers of sulphur dance in the hot springs. Those flowers of sulphur seem to deposit on the bottom of the indoor bath and hot spring ingredients deposits to my foots. Shampoos and body soaps are provided at the bathhouse. A free hair dryer is insalled at a dressing room, but there is not a restroom. You should get a wash beforehand at the restroom along a corridor. A staying is possible, too.
