Chippubetsu Onsen

Chippubetsu Onsen (秩父別温泉) is a hot spring place in Chippubetsu town located in the western part of Asahikawa city. Chippu You and Yu (ちっぷゆう&ゆ) is built near Chippubetsu Station, restraunts, Izakaya and a convenience store. There are road station "Chippubetsu with a sounding bell" (道の駅「鐘のなるまち、ちっぷべつ」), Open 100th Anniversary Tower (開基100年記念塔), sports park that tourists can play a park golf course and a camping ground around here. Famous tourist attractions in the Chippubetsu are Rose Garden Chippubetsu (ローズガーデンちっぷべつ) and Kids Square Chikkuru (キッズスクエアちっくる). In addition, Green Spaghetti Napolitana (緑のナポリタン), a local dish, is tasty. I ate it at Restaurant "Hamanasu (はまなす)". By the way, Hokuryu Sunflower Field (北竜ひまわりの里) is relatively near here.

Look of Rose Garden Chippubetsu

The rose garden has Rose Castle Flora (バラの城ふろーら), Karos Hill Lookout (カロスの丘展望台), Shukeiike Pond (修景池), Bell of Karos (カロスの鐘), Rose Shop Yume-Pokke (ローズショップ ゆめポッケ) and a gazebo. Visitors can look around along walks. The elevation of the Karos Hill Lookout is about 100 m, and the elevation of the rose garden is about 80 m, so the difference of elevation is about 20 m. The hill has steps of its difference of elevation, so you may wear comfortable shoes.

The Bell of Karos stands near the Shukeiike Pond, and if people throw a coin into the fountain in looking back after ringing the bell, it is said that their wishes come true. The wishes are classified depending on ringing times. For example, ringing 1 time classifies the success of love, and ringing 2 times classifies the luck with money. Open 100th Anniversary Tower (開基100年記念塔) beside Chippu You and Yu (ちっぷゆう&ゆ) has a bell as well as the Bell of Karos, and I guess that all the bells in Chippubetsu that is the town where a bell sounds have same effects. By the way, the Karos means "Beautiful" in Greek language.
