Kitayuzawa Onsen

Kitayuzawa Onsen (北湯沢温泉) is a hot-spring place in Date city located in the northern direction of Muroran city. 5 accommodations dot along Osaru River and National Route 453 (Usu National Route) linked Lake Toya with Lake Shikotsu. In the Osaru River with 50.4 km in total length, after volcanic ash had been deposited on the riverbed, green tuff bedrock has exposed at Kitayuzawa Onsen district only for about 2 km, so the scenery was named "Shirakinu-no-Yuka (白絹の床)" after color of the bedrock. Tourists can play in the river because of the shallow depth. If you play it, you should bring a towel to wipe your feet. Read More

Look of Sankaidaki Park

As its name suggests, Sankaidaki River is divided into 3 parts while falling. * The sankai means "3 floors" in English, and the daki means "A waterdall" in English. A waterfall with a fall is about 10 m. In a spring, the falls is very powerful because of snow meltwater. I visited here in late summer, and a negative ion was comfortable. A drinking fountain called "Kanrohousui Spring (甘露法水)" is nearby the Sankaidaki River. Underground water gushes out from 380 m below ground. When I drinked it, it tasted mild. It is said that a lot of visitors bring it back.
