Hot Springs That Matsumae Feudal Lord Seem To Bath -Matsumae Onsen-

May 8th, 2014

Matsumae Onsen Rest Center

Matsumae Onsen Rest Center (松前温泉休養センター) is a public bath in Matsumae town located the southwestern part of Hakodate city. Hot springs were discovered 150 years ago, and a feudal lord of Matsumae Castle (松前城) seemed to take a bath, too. Takedabishi (武田菱) that was surely a family crest of Matsumae family ((松前氏)) mounted on a wall at a bathhouse. Interior decoration was Japanese-style design with Japanese roof tiles. There are 1 large indoor bath, 1 cold bath and 1 sauna at the bathhouse. The large indoor bath is the size that about 15 people take a bath. I visited this facility at noon on weekdays, but about 8 local people took a bath.

The hot springs are sodium chloride sulfate spring, and are clear and light brown and have salty taste and no smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 5.193 g (sulfate ion has 1,985 mg). My body warmed by the hot springs. Shampoos and bodysoaps are not provided at the bathhouses, so bathers must bring those. A restroom and free hair dryers are installed at a dressing room.
