Fresh Free Flowing Hot Springs Can Be Enjoyed for JPY 200 -Rusutsu Onsen-

September 16th, 2017

Rutsu Onsen (ルスツ温泉) is a day trip onsen facility in Rusutsu located in the north part of Lake Toya (洞爺湖) and has opened a business since 2000. It is popular for savoring fresh free flowing hot springs for JPY 200. Especially, it may be said a place for relaxation and refreshment for local people. A small building is surrounded by fields.

Entrances of Bathrooms
Rusutsu Onsen

A bathroom is not large, but it has a high ceiling, and its wall and ceiling are made of woods, so the warmth of a tree can be felt, and it does not give a feeling of pressure. I felt it was comfortable space. There is 1 indoor bath at the bathroom. It is the size that about 5 people can take a bath. The fresh free flowing hot springs overflow from bath. I felt slippery when soak myself at the hot springs. Trees instead of a blindfold fence can be seen through a window.

The hot springs are sodium chloride carbonated spring, and are slightly opaque and light yellow and have metallic taste and metallic odor. The hot springs seem to be drinkable, but I could not find a drinking hot spring facility. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 1.969 g. Shampoos and body soaps are not provided at the bathhouse.
