August 14th, 2016

Kojohama Onsen

Kojohama Onsen (虎杖浜温泉) is a hot spring town near Noboribetsu Onsen in Shiraoi town located in the western part of Tomakomai city. The Kojohama Onsen is roughly divided into 2 parts, Takeura district (竹浦地区) and Kojohama distirct (虎杖浜地区), and about 30 hot spring facilities dot for 6 km along National Route 36. There are few large accommodations, and almost small-sized accommodations are built in residential area. Except the hot spring facilities, restaurants, cafes, Izakaya, bars with a surcharge, convenience stores and souvenir shops dot in the residential area, and Tarakoya Kojohama (たらこ家虎杖浜), Kita-no-Lamptei (北のランプ亭), Hashimoto Coffee-Kan (はしもと珈琲館), Miharu (三春) and Sobakiri Yamada (そば切りやま田) are popular in particular. Kojohama is famous for Salted Cod Roe (たらこ), so there are many seafood store here and there, and are crowded with tourists. Cuttlefish Rice Cracker (いかせんべい) is popular, too. There are Ponayoro Ruins (ポンアヨロ遺跡), Ayoro Beach (アヨロ海岸), Ayorohana Lighthouse (アヨロ鼻灯台), Noboribetsu Jigokudani (登別地獄谷), Lake Kuttara (倶多楽湖), Noboribetsu Bear Ranch (登別クマ牧場), Noboribetsu Date Jidaimura (登別伊達時代村) and NOBORIBETSU MARINE PARK NIXE (登別マリンパークニクス) near the Kojohama Onsen.

It is the beginning of the Kojohama Onsen that Mr. Kojiro Ishikawa (石川小二郎) succeeded in drilling the hot springs in 1963. Kojo (虎杖) means "Place That Japanese Knotweed Grow Thick" in Ainu language, and I guess that a beach used to be covered with the Japanese Knotweed. A quantity of the hot springs is abundant, and common people use the hot springs at each family, and the hot springs can be enjoyed at a restaurant and love hotels, too. Kojohama Onsen declared "100% natural free flowing hot springs without chlorination" in 2011, and is well-known for enjoying high quality hot springs, and is popular for a lot of onsen lovers to find little-known hot spring facilities. But the overall hot spring facilities are not new, so people liking new facilities may not be suitable for the hot spring facilities.

As for an event, Kojohama 3 Major Festival, Crab, Salted Cod Roe and Onsen (虎杖浜 かに・たらこ・温泉三大まつり) is held on Saturday and Sunday in early August. Nonstop buses do not run from Kojohama Onsen to another places, but the nonstop buses run from Noboribetsu Onsen to Sapporo or New Chitose Airport, so visitors may save the transit time to combine the nonstop bus with a taxi or a local bus. The nonstop buses, Hokkaido Resort Liner (北海道リゾートライナー) and Noboribetsu Onsen Express Bus Air Port (高速登別温泉エアポート号), run between New Chitose Airport and Noboribetsu Onsen, and nonstop buses, Hokkaido Resort Liner (北海道リゾートライナー) and Express Bus Onsen (高速おんせん号), run between Sapporo and Noboribetsu Onsen, so those would be very convenient.
