Matsubara Onsen Ryokan
Matsubara Onsen Ryokan is a long-established onsen ryokan near Kemubuchi River, and has opened a business since 1908, and is well-known as one of most rich moor hot spring in Hokkaido by onsen fans. An entrance fee to a bath facility is JPY 600. A staying without meal is possible. I visited here around 10:00 on weekdays. Other visitors came at just opening hour, too. Unfortunately, it is prohibited to take photos at this ryokan.
There are 2 indoor baths at a oublic bathhouse. One bath with (1)sulfur and sodium chloride carbonated cold spring is the size that about 5 people take a bath. Another bath with (2)sodium chloride spring is the size that about 2 people take a bath. Both colors of hot springs are great black. Especially (1)sulfur and sodium chloride carbonated cold spring is most black in Hokkaido as far as I know.
The hot springs are (1)sulfur and sodium chloride carbonated cold spring with the moor hot spring and (2)sodium chloride spring with the moor hot spring. (1) is clear and dark brown and have neither taste nor smell and (2) is clear and dark brown and have salty taste and no smell. Those have a smooth and slipery touch. The hot springs are drinkable, too, and 2 faucets are installed. (1) seems to have an effect for Arteriosclerosis, Gout, Constipation, Chronic digestive diseases, Liver disease and (2) seems to have an effect for Chronic digestive diseases, Chronic constipation. (1) has a refreshing taste and (2) is salty.
Shampoos and bodysoaps are not provided at the bathhouses, so bathers must bring those. A restroom and a hair dryer is not installed at a dressing room, so you should get a wash beforehand at the restroom along the corridor.
