Seseki hot spring***

Hot spring which sinks in the sea


The Seseki hot spring is a famous open-air bath in the east side of the Shiretoko peninsula. The hot spring sprang from the crevice between the rocks of the seashore, and it became the natural rock bath. Open-air baths become the bottom of the water surface at the time of a high tide.

Mr. Hamasawa (Rausu tangle store owner) owns this hot spring. Hot water is pumped out of the fountainhead with hose, and it is moving to the bathtab of the larger one now. The visitor is to use the bathtab of the larger one.

There is no undressing place. You will remove dress on the seashore. Ladies will need a swimming suit.

I greeted Mr. Hamasawa who was looking at the sea leisurely in the tangle store. He advised me. "Since tide was in, you had better enter early." I remove dress in a hurry and go there. The temperature of water is a little tepid. The rock seaweed has floated in hot water.

Since it is fine weather, the view of the wonderful sea can be enjoyed. The Kunashiri island on the opposite shore is visible. It is about 40km to the opposite shore, and it is felt for near.

If tide is in, waves will go into the bathtab. The open-air bath sinks in the sea in slight time.

Since it is a high tide, he tidies up the hose of the fountainhead. The left is Mr. Hamasawa.
