March 12th, 2014
Kunneppu Onsen (訓子府温泉) is a hot spring place in Kunneppu town located in the southwestern part of Kitami city. Only Kunneppu Onsen Rest Center (訓子府温泉保養センター) surrounded by fields is built between Tokoro River (常呂川) and Hokkaido Road 50. It takes about 5 minutes from the center of the Kunneppu by car, and this onsen is relatively near the center of the Kunneppu. Speaking of the Kunneppu, Kunneppu Tare Katsudon is famous. I ate it at Fukuyosi, and it was tasty.
Kunneppu Tare Katsudon
Fukuyoshi (福よし) is a long-established restaurant in Kunneppu town located in the southwest part of Kitami city and was founded in 1950. Various dishes such as sushi and ramen are served. It is the restraunt loved by local people. Kunneppu is known as the pork cutlet rice bowl with sauce called tare katsudon, and in particular many tourists come to the Fukuyoshi as a pioneer of Kunneppu Tare Katsudon (訓子府たれカツ丼). The Tare katsudon is not tamagotoji katsudon (卵とじカツ丼 * pork cutlet rice bowl with beaten egg). The Tare Katsudon in Niigata Prefecture is famous, but, in fact, the Tare Katsudon is the local dish that rooted in Kunneppu town, too. Article is here
List of Day Trip Onsen
Visitors can take a day trip bath at the Kunneppu Onsen Rest Center.
Kunneppu Onsen Rest Center
Kunneppu Onsen Rest Center is a public bathhouse for day trip onsen founded in 1991. The interior decoration has a sense of cleanliness. I visited here around 12:30 on weekdays. It was popular with local people, and 6 local old bathers took a bath. An entrance fee to a bath facility is JPY 390.
There are 1 indoor bath, 1 whirlpool bath, 1 cold bath and 1 sauna at a public bathhouse. The tiled bathhouse is not large. But the sunny bathhouse with a lot of windows is feeling good. There is not an outdoor bath, but a resting place surrounded by walls is provided at the outside.
The indoor bath is the size that about 10 people can take a bath, and the whirlpool bath is the size that about 3 people can take a bath, and both baths use free flowing hot springs. The hot springs are pretty hot, and are suitable for a person liking very hot springs.
The hot springs are sodium and chloride bicarbonate sulfate spring, and are clear and tasteless and have neither taste nor smell, and have smooth and slippery touch. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 1.301 g/kg. A facility for drinking the hot springs is set, so I drank those, and those tasted just like the hot springs, but those had no taste. Those seem to be effective for Chronic digestive organ disease, Chronic constipation, Diabetes, Gout, liver trouble, Chronic skin diseases, Cholelithiasis and Adiposity. Body soaps are provided ar the bathhouse. A restroom and a hair dryer is installed at a dressing room.
