List of Onsen

The SHokanbetsu Area and the Atsuta and Hamamasu Area have few onsen. As far as I know, the onsen is just Iwao Onsen (岩尾温泉). But Hamamasu Onsen (浜益温泉) and Hokuryu Onsen (北竜温泉) are close to those area.

Iwao Onsen

Iwao Onsen (岩尾温泉) is a hot-spring place in Mashike town along the Sea of Japan located in the western part of Asahikawa city and, is well-known for the beautiful setting sun over the sea of the Japan. It is relatively near Cape Ofuyu (雄冬岬) in Shokanbetsu Teuri Yagishiri Quasi-National Park (暑寒別天売焼尻国定公園). Because it is originally too inaccessible land to hard to build a road, buildings such as Yuseki-so (夕陽荘) and Iwao Onsen Attamaru (岩尾温泉あったま~る) are built on sheer rock along the Ororon Line (National Route 231) thinly. The Iwao Onsen is about 20 km away from the center of the Mashike, and it takes about 20 minutes by car. I missed it several times because the buildings are on the sheer rock. A mark is Iwaoi Fishing Port (岩老漁港). In addition, Drive safely at a precipitous slope. Unfortunately, restaurants, cafes, cafes, souvenir shops and convenience stores are not built. Article is here

Kawashimo Seaside Campsite (川下海浜キャンプ場) and Kawashimo Bathing Beach (川下海水浴場) is relatively near here. The distance is around 70 km far away from the center of the Ishikari, and a convenience store is not built around here.

    您好,Kimmy,不用謝,你能樂在其中我也很高興。
    如果天氣晴朗,天賣島和燒尻島是非常好的。
    我也認為赤岩很漂亮。
    請再來北海道!謝謝!

  2. kimmy says:

    您好,我已經從天賣與燒尻玩回來了,感謝您之前提供的資訊與解說,:-D,我最後是一島一天(住羽幌),天賣租輕型機車,燒尻租腳踏車(騎得好辛苦),天氣很好我還曬黑了,我個人比較喜歡天賣(因為有機車?是赤岩很漂亮)

  3. good! hokkaido! says:

    Kimmy您好!

    沒問題,如果你漫漫環島,在兩島能享受十分。
    關於燒尻的租輕型機車,我認為没有。
    燒尻有觀光的士和租自行車。
    但租自行車和租輕型機車(天賣島)的營業到九月中旬結束。
    小心月日!

  4. Kimmy says:

    多謝您的回答 😀
    原來兩島一天就夠了啊,我目前的安排是燒尻,天賣各一天(會太多嗎?)我也是打算在天賣租輕型機車的,但燒尻呢?大多數人在燒尻似乎都是租單車,是因為燒尻沒有輕型機車可租嗎(但我在一篇舊blog文中看到說燒尻有…)?

  5. good! hokkaido! says:

    Kimmy您好!
    我很高興我的網頁對您有用。

    燒尻島和天賣島很小,兩島能一天環島。
    我用租輕型機車(50cc)遊覽了天賣約1小時半。

    ■Ororon租用(おろろんレンタル)
    http://www.teuri.jp/stay/ororonrental.html

    租輕型機車(50cc)2小時間2000日元。
    ※行車執照是必要的。

    對了,在燒尻有唯一出租自行車。

    ■出租自行車梅原(レンタサイクル梅原)
    http://www.haboro.tv/play.php#yagishiri

    出租自行車2小時間800日元。

  6. Kimmy says:

    您好,又來拜讀,獲益良多,謝謝。我打算9月去,當天來回,在天賣只能停留不到6小時,租輕型機車遊覽整島,是否足夠呢?
    之前曾向您詢問過奧尻,感謝您回答。目前正掙扎著是否要奧尻,燒尻,天賣,三者都去(利尻禮文已去過)…
