[Odaito Onsen in Bekkai] Day Trip Onsen and Gulf of Notsuke Can Be Enjoyed at Seaside Hotel

June 4th, 2017

Odaito Onsen

Odaito Onsen (尾岱沼温泉) is a hot spring place in Betsukai town located in the other side of Notsuke Peninsula (野付半島). Visitors turn along Notsuke National Route (野付国道 * National Route 244), and go straight for around 200 m, and the end of the road is the Odaito Onsen. Odaito Onsen Seaside Hotel (尾岱沼温泉 シーサイドホテル) facing the Pacific Ocean is built a small hill at around 6 m above sea level. The distance is around 2 km away from the center of the Odaito, and there are a boarding point, restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops, bars with a surcharge, Izakaya and a convenience store there. Nakashibetsu is relatively near here, and here is easy access to Nemuro Nakashibetsu Airport, too.

A famous tourist attraction near here is Notsuke Peninsula. It is well-known for Todowara and Narawara. Fishing Hokkai Shrimp (北海シマエビ) with using Utase Ship (打瀬舟) is a seasonal event in a summer or an autumn, and Odaito Shrimp Festtival (尾岱沼えびまつり) is held in late June. By the way, specialties in the Bekkai are seafood and milk. Local dishes are Bekkai Jumbo Scallop Hamburger (別海ジャンボホタテバーガー) and Bekkai Jumbo Sakhalin Surf Clam and Steak (別海ジャンボホッキステーキ丼). I ate the Bekkai Jumbo Scallop Hamburger at Hamanasu (はまなす), and it was tasty.

Notsuke Peninsula

Notsuke Peninsula (野付半島) is a prawn-shaped peninsula. The ground is made of sand, and a sandbar with 26 km in length is the largest sandbar in Japan. It was designed as the Ramsar Convention wetland in 2005. Tourists can enjoy an unusual scenery that there are flowers and the sea on both sides across a road called flower road (フラワーロード). Todowara (トドワラ) that has become a synonym for Notsuke Peninsula is especially famous. Unfortunately almost Todowara has disappeared, but a typical Notsuke Peninsula scenery spreads over because Narawara (ナラワラ) is still left. A sightseeing ship provides a ferrying service between Notsuke Peninsula and Odaito, Betsukai town (別海町尾岱沼), and the tourists can look over Notsuke Peninsula and Odaito on the sea. Article is here

It is famous for a large helping of meals in particular, and a chicken cutlet combo is most popular. Article is here

Visitors can take a day trip bath at the Ikoi-no-Yu and the Otaito Onsen Seaside Hotel. On the other hand, an accommodation without taking a day trip bath is the Onsen Minshuku Todowara-so.

Odaito Onsen Seaside Hotel

Odaito Onsen Seaside Hotel is a small-sized onsen ryoakn founded in 1991, and is famous for a good view from an open-air bath. Bird photos and sceninc photos are display on walls of a corridor, and I guess that this ryokan is popular with various photographers. In Odaito districrt, almost square morning sun can be seen in a winter. An entrance fee to the bath facility is JPY 500. A staying is possible, too, and dishes using local seafood such as Hokkai shrimp have a good reputation.

The open-air bath surrounded by rocks is the size that about 4 people can take a bath, and uses free flowing hot springs. It has much hot springs, and those overflow successively. I enjoyed the situation. A sense of openness can be enjoyed without a roof. The weather was cloudy on this day. But the Notsuke Peninsula could be seen. I stood to look at the view firmly with my legs wide apart, my hands on his hips. I think that a view is great if it is fine weather. The morning sun seems to be beautiful early in the morning, and starry sky seems to be beautiful in the evening, too.
