[Matsumae Onsen] Day Trip Bath and Pond Smelt Fishing Can Be Enjoyed at Tappu-no-Yu
February 15th, 2015
Shinsinotsu Onsen (新篠津温泉) is a hot spring place in Shinsinotsu village located in northeastern part in Sapporo city. Only Tappu-no-Yu (たっぷの湯) is built on the shore of Lake Shinotsu, and has roadside station "Shinshinotsu (しんしのつ)" at a same building, too. There are Shinotsuko Park Campsite (しのつ湖公園キャンプ場), New Shinotsu Golf Course (ニューしのつゴルフ場) and Shinotsu Park (しのつ公園) around here. The distance is around 2 km away from the center of Shinshinotsu. Unfortunately, a convenience store is not built around here.
Speaking of a tourist attraction in the Shinsinotsu, The Lake Shinotsu is famous. Fishing or a boat can be enjoyed in a summer, and pond smelt fishing can be enjoyed in a winter. Especially, the pond smelt fishing is popular, and the lake is crowded with tourists. By the way, a tasty restaurant in the Shinsinotsu, Soba Restraunt "Shichifuku" (手打そば家 七福) is popular in particular.

List of Day Trip Onsen
Visitors can take a day trip bath at the Tappu-no-Yu.
Tappu-no-Yu is a small-sized onsen hotel, and has opened a business since 1997. A hot spring facility is popular with local people. A lot of Thai tourists visit here, and it has a guidance in Thai language. An entrance fee to a bath facility is JPY 500. Visitors for day trip bath can take a bath from 06:00 to 08:00, too. A restraunt, a shop and a gelato shop are at the building, too, and the visitors for day trip bath can use the restraunt. A chartered bath is provided, and an extra cost is JPY 1000. A staying is possible, too.
There are 1 outdoor bath, 1 indoor bath, 1 whirlpool bath, 1 cascading bath, 1 cold bath and 1 sauna at a large public bathhouse. The sunny tiled bathhouse with large windows is feeling good.
The indoor bath beside the windows is the size that about 10 people can take a bath. The whirlpool bath seats 1 person. Both baths use free flowing hot springs.
The outdoor bath surrounded by rocks is the size that about 10 people can take a bath. It is surrounded by a roof and blind fencess, so a sense of openness can not be felt, and a view is not good. But bathers can see the Lake Shinotsu dimly.
The hot springs are strong sodium chloride spring, and are a little opaque and light yellow and have salty taste and no smell, and are seem to be drinkable, but I have never found a drinking hot spring facility. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 25.54 g/kg. The hot springs have rich ingredients. Iodine ion content is 16.4 mg/kg, and is thicker than Bansei Onsen in Taiki town, and the hot springs are salty more than anything. It seems to be effective for warming body. Shampoos and body soaps are provided at the bathhouse. A restroom and free hair dryers are installed at a dressing room.
