July 12th, 2014

Shirogane Onsen

Shirogane Onsen (白金温泉) is a popular hot-spring resort in Biei town located in the southern part of Asahikawa city. Three-hundred thousand people visit here every year. It is a base for sightseeing in the western part of the Daisetsuzan National Park (大雪山国立公園), and there are trailheads of Tokachidake Mountain Range including Mt. Tokachidake, Mt. Oputashike, Mt. Bieidake and Mt. Furanodake, near the Shirogane Onsen, so a lot of climbers as well as bathers come, too. There are 5 accommodations in a white birch forest, some trail pathes are built around those, too, and the tourists can enjoy great outdoors of Daisetsuzan. In addition, there are Shirogane Tourist information Center (白金観光センター案内所), Rindo Shokudo (林道食堂), Nagai Souvenir Shop (永井商店), Taisetsu Youth Recreation Hall (大雪青年交流の家) and Shirogane Campsite (国設白金野営場), too. By the way, the Shirogane Onsen is not so large, convenience stores are not built.

It is said that the Shirogane Onsen originated in Hatakeyama Onsen (畠山温泉) that was destroyed completely by mudflows and landslides when Mt. Tokachidake erupted in 1926. After that, Mr. Koukami Kakuichi (鴻上覚一) succeeded in drilling hot spring in 1950, and that provided a basis for developing the hot-spring resort. After a lot of difficulties were overcame, the hot springs at 48 C gashed out from 399 m underground. Because he said "the hot springs from the underground are very valuable thing like platinum. * The platinum means Hakkin (白金 * another reading is Shirogane) in Japanese", the hot-springs resort was named after that. It is surprising that the origin of the name is neither color of the hot springs or mined noble metals. The hot springs used to be called "Onsen without using a walking stick (杖忘れの湯 * After a person using the walking stick take a bath at the onsen, the person start to walk without the walking stick.)", and it is said that the hot springs seem to be effective for Neuralgia, Arteriosclerosis, Chronic skin diseases and Constipation.

There are Blue Pond (青い池) that is a representative of Hokkaido tourism, Shirahige Falls (白髭の滝), Bokyodai (望岳台) and Shirogane Fudo Falls (白金不動の滝) around the Shirogane Onsen, so a lot of tourists stay to visit those.

The outdoor bath surrounded by rocks is the size that about 4 people can take a bath. A sense of openness can not be felt, and a view is not good because the outdoor bath is surrounded by walls.

I felt comfortable when the hot springs were overflowed by me.
