The evening scene of the Ishikari River


There are Jacuzzi , sauna bath and water bath in the bath house, and an open-air bath, too. It is a very respectable facility for hot spring relaxation.

You can see the Sea of Japan and the sweetbrier field from the open-air bath. Because we went there in winter, it was snowing on the open-air bath.
It was warm when we were soaked in the open-air bath. But, we did not go out of the bathtub because it was very cold in the outside.

You can look over Ishikari bay from the lounge. There are restaurant and the lounge of the Japanese- style room. Because Ishikari town is the cradle of the salmon can, the reprinted edition of salmon can are sold in the stand.
