[Rishirifuji Onsen in Rishi] Day Trip Onsen and Open-air Bath with Sence of Openness Can Be Enjoyed at Rishirifuji Onsen Recreation Facility

Rishirifuji Onsen

Rishirifuji Onsen (利尻富士温泉) is a hot spring place in Rishiri Island (利尻島) located in the northern part of Hokkaido. Rishirifuji Onsen Recreation Facility (利尻富士温泉保養施設) is around 1.5 km away from Oshidomari Ferry Terminal. It is near the center of the Oshidomari, and restaurants, a convenience store and Izakaya are built there. Cape Peshi (ペシ岬展望台), Yuhigaoka Observatory (夕日ヶ丘展望台), Fujino-enchi Observatory (富士野園地) and Kanrosensui Spring (甘露泉水) are relatively near here, too. By the way, Speaking of tasty restaurants in the Rishiri, Rishiri Kameichi (利尻亀一) and Grand Spot (グランスポット) are popular in particular. But I have never eaten foods there. I ate foods at Miraku (味楽), Mirupisu Stoer (ミルピス商店) and Isoyakitei (磯焼亭), and those were tasty.

Mirupisu Store

Mirupisu Store (ミルピス商店) is in Kustugata, Rishiri island and is located in the western part of the island. Speaking of Rishiri, kombu or mirupisu (ミルピス) are famous. The mirupisu is a milk drink sold only in Rishiri Island, and that makes us feel special. Originally the mirupisu store was a ranch, but they discontinued the ranch and start that sale in 1990. Because this store became a tourist attraction, I visited here around 10:00 on weekdays. Read More

Isoyakitei

Isoyakitei (磯焼亭) is a restaurant in front of Oshidomari Ferry Port in Rishiri Island and is famous for getting the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition. Because ramen seemed to be popular, but I wanted to eat a sea urchin which grew up and eat Rishiri kombu, I visited to eat Fresh Sea Urchin Rice Bowl (生ウニ丼) limited from June to September around 17:00 on weekdays.

There are some means of transportation for the island tourism, for example, a sightseeing bus and a fixed-route bus managed by Soya bus (宗谷バス), a sightseeing taxi, a rental car, a rental motor scooter and a rental bicycle. I went around the Rishiri Island by the rental motor scooter, and it was very comfortable. By the way, if tourists raise their hand in the case of fixed-route bus happening to pass, they can get on the bus without a bus stop, and can get off the bus without a bus stop.
