This is another my favorite hot spring bath in Hokkaido. Some people said that there was the graveyard of indigenous people of Hokkaido Ainu in the premises of this hotel because there are many tag of talisman on the wall of the guest room in this hotel.
I am not sure the truth but as the hotel is not so far from my hometown Kitami City, approximately one hour drive from the hotel to my house in Kitami City, I do not have to stay in this hotel and my wife may believe the rumor and wants to avoid to be scared by invisible existence.
Besides, this garden lantern and the hot spring bath outside make me so relaxed and give me the second wing. It is very calm and just the sound of pouring hot water strikes the chord of my heart.
This hotel is located at the foot of Mt. Meakan(dake) and near the lake named ONNETOU that has so beautiful emerald green surface.
Precise location is shown at
but no English information on this site unfortunately.
My wife and I will come here again this year!
