[Naumann Onsen in Makubetsu] Day Trip Bath and Hot Springs with Smooth and Slippery Touch Can Be Enjoyed at Hotel Arco236
Naumann Onsen (ナウマン温泉) is a hot spring place in Churui, Makubetsu town located in the southern direction of Obihiro city, and only Hotel Arco236 along Hiroo National Route (広尾国道 * National Route 236) opens a business beside roadside station “Churui (忠類)”. A fossil of Elephas Namadicus was excavated in 1969, and the Elephas Namadicus is a symbol of the Churui because complete skeleton was first succeeded in restoring in Japan. Hot springs were succeeded in drilling in 1992, so the hot spring place is named the Naumann Onsen. By the way, the Hotel Arco236 is close to Elephas Namadicus Museum (ナウマン象記念館), Elephas Namadicus Park (ナウマン公園), art objects of the Elephas Namadicus, Elephas Namadicus Park Campsite (ナウマン公園キャンプ場) and a park golf course. There is Hakugindai Ski Resort (白銀台スキー場) around the Naumann Onsen.
By the way, a highway bus “Potato Liner (ポテトライナー)” runs between the Obihiro and the Sapporo, and a express bus “North Liner-go (ノースライナー号)” runs between the Obihiro and Asahikawa.
