[Takeyama-Kogen Onsen in Kita-hiroshima] Day Trip Onsen, and Moor Hot Spring Can Be Enjoyed at Takeyama-Kogen Onsen Hotel near Sapporo and New Chitose Airport
Takeyama-Kogen Onsen (竹山高原温泉) is a hot spring place in Kita-hiroshima city located in the southern direction of Sapporo city. Only Takeyama-Kogen Onsen Hotel (竹山高原温泉ホテル) is built at about 90 m above sea level on a hill near New Chitose Airport (新千歳空港) and the Sapporo. There are a golf course, Sun Park Sapporo Golf Course (サンパーク札幌ゴルフコース), Tomigaoka Forest Walking Path (富ヶ岡遊歩道の森), Kuroimori Art Museum (黒い森美術館) around here. The distance is around 5 km away from the center of the Kita-hiroshima, and restraunts, cafes, souvenir shops and convenience stores are not built.
As for the Takeyama-Kogen Onsen, simple warm spring with moor hot spring are gushed out. The moor spring is brown spring that gushes out from a peat bed or a lignitic bed, and contains a lot of organics of plant origin, so it has slippery touch, and is good for a skin, and is called beauty hot spring (美人の湯), too. The moor spring is different from usual types of the hot springs, and the hot springs are recognized as the moor spring if those contain humus. By the way, a famous tourist attraction in the Kita-hiroshima is Mitsui Outlet Park (三井アウトレットパーク). Speaking of tasty restaurants in the Kita-hiroshima, Sobakiri Nakamura (そば切り なかむら), ARTLACZE, Kururu-no-Mori (くるるの杜), Pattiserie Montenver, and Kaitenzushi Sealand (海転寿司シーランド) are popular in particular. I ate foods at the ARTLACZE and the Kururu-no-Mori, and those were tasty.

Takeyama-Kogen Onsen Hotel
Takeyama-Kogen Onsen Hotel is a small-sized long-established onsen ryokan founded in 1970. The appearance is like a mountain hut in Switzerland. There are a golf course and a park golf course around here, so a lot of visitors seem to take a bath after having played there. This is like a little resort.
