[Oshamambe Onsen] Day Trip Onsen and Free Flowing Hot Springs Can Be Enjoyed in 10 Minutes from Oshamanbe Station on Foot

May 4th, 2014

Oshamanbe Onsen

Oshamanbe Onsen (長万部温泉) is a hot spring town located in the northwestern part of Muroran city. 7 hot spring facilities are built in the back side of Oshamanbe Station. There are Oshamanbe Library, Oshamanbe Sports Center, restraunts, cafes, a convenience store near here. It is the origin of the Oshamanbe Onsen that hot spring gushed out when they prospected for a natural gas vein in 1955. It is unusual that the hot springs have begun to spring out in such a downtown. Oshamanbe Onsen Cooperative Association manages a hot spring source, and distributes the hot springs to each hot spring facilities, so all hot spring facilities have same hot springs.

Oshamanbe means "Estuary that a lot of flounders are fished" in Ainu language. Crab Meat and Rice (かにめし) are famous, and Restraunt Kanaya (かなや) is popular with tourists. I ate it at Hama-no-Ie (濱乃家), and it was tasty. By the way, Shizukari Marshland (静狩湿原) is relatively famous tourist attractions near here.

There are 2 indoor baths and 1 outdoor bath at a public bathroom. They have 2 types of public bathrooms, the bathroom with a cypress bath and the bathroom with a tiled bath, so the bathroom for men or women are replaced every day. I took a bath at the bathroom with the cypress bath. The bathroom with a conbination of wooden board and tile is small, and is slightly dark.

Look of Indoor Bath

The indoor bath has 2 types of water temperature, 44 C and 41 C. The indoor bath with the water temperature 44 C is the size that about 4 people can take a bath. The indoor bath with the water temperature 41 C is the size that about 2 people can take a bath. Please watch your step because the cypress bath is easy to slip. The indoor bath with the water temperature 44 C was very hot, so I enjoyed genuine onsen. The indoor bath with the water temperature 41 C was suitable for taking a long bath, but the bathroom was steamy, so I recomend you might take a long bath at the outdoor bath. 100% natural free flowing hot spinrgs poured into both baths, and overflowed from the baths, I enjoyed the state.

The outdoor bath surrounded by rocks is the size that about 2 people can take a bath, and is more cold than the indoor baths, so it is suitable for taking a long bath. Unfortunately, the outdoor bath is surrounded by walls, and has a roof, so you may feel a sense of openness little. But Cold air is comfortable while bathing.

There is not a restroom at a dressing room, so you should get a wash beforehand at the restroom at a corridor.
