Switzerland-Like Building Is Outstanding -Utashinai Onsen Tyrol-no-Yu-
July 25th, 2014
Tyrol-no-Yu (チロルの湯) is a hot spring hotel in Utashinai city located in the southwestern part of Asahikawa city abd is adjacent to roadside station "Utashinai Tyrol (うたしないチロル)", Switzerland-like lodge is built on a hill. Why it is Switzerland ? Because an atmosphere of the whole town seems to similar the Switzerland, and they push forward the Switzerland plan. Other buildings were a lot of Switzerland-like buildings, too.
Originally Utashinai prospered as a coal mine town and it seems to use hot springs that gushed out from the coal mine. There are 1 outdoor bath, 1 large indoor bath, 2 pot baths, 1 whirlpool bath, 1 cold bath and 1 sauna at a bathhouse. Bathers can look at the roadside station and a cityscape of Utashinai from the outdoor bath, but I did not feel a sense of openness because it is covered by walls and a roof.
The hot springs are sodium bicarbonate spring, and are clear and light yellow and have neither taste nor smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 3.266 g. This hot springs seem to be effective for masking skin smooth and beautiful, and those warm bathers's body. Shampoos and body soaps are provided at the bathhouse. In addition, free hair dryers and a restroom are installed at a dressing room. A staying is possible, too.
