Teshiogawa Onsen Resort Center
Teshiogawa Onsen Resort Center (天塩川温泉住民保養センター) is a hot-spring hotel in Otoineppu village located between Asahikawa city and Wakkanai city. There is a building along Teshio River. It was founded in the 1920s. At first, it was popular for drinking hot springs, the hot springs were sold as a drench "Tokiwa Mineral Spring (常磐鉱泉)". It is the rare case that the hot springs are sold as a medicine. Unfortunately, the hot springs are drinkable now, but many people visit here to take a bath. There are a camping ground and a park golf course near the building, and there are Ougyo-no-Matsu (天仰の松 * Pine looking up to the sky) in the heart of mountains.
There are 1 outdoor bath and 2 indoor baths at the bathhouse. Only 1 indoor spa has the hot springs, and others have hot water. The outdoor bath is surrounded by rocks, and there are no blindfold fences, so it has a sense of openness, and bathers can look over Teshio River. But the outdoor bath seems to be closed because it is too cold in a winter.
The hot springs are sodium chloride carbonated spring, and are clear and light yellow and have a little salty taste and no smell. Shampoos and body soaps are provided at the bathhouse. A restroom and free hair dryers are installed at a dressing room. A staying is possible, too.
