The oldest hot spring hotel in Shima
Sekizenkan is oldest hot spring hotel of a Shima hot spring. It is said that the building of a main building is the oldest hot spring hotel in Japan with the image of 300 years ago. Sekizenkan is in the confluence point of a Shinyu river and a Shima river. The bridge of Shinyu river is situated in the front of the hotel.
The buildings of a bathroom were built in early stages of Showa, the first floor is bathrooms, and the second floor and the third floor are drawing rooms. This bath- room is called Genroku- no-yu. The window is the arch type and I think that it was modern at the time of construction.
The ingredients of a hot spring are arsenic-sodium and a calcium chloride sulfuric-acid spring. The temperature of the fountainhead is 78 degrees quite highly.
The space taking off clothes is situated in an entrance, and there is no partition. The inside of a bathroom has five small bathtubs. From the center of a bathtub, hot water springs and it is overflowing calmly. Seeing it makes me a rich feeling.
The water is transparent and a little hotter. It is good water which soaks into the body. The faucet of a bathtub is for adding hot water.
There are also steam baths for one person in a bathroom. The chair of a tile is a nostalgic design.
The Gunma prefecture Azuma County Nakanojo- cho Shima hot spring
A insenjo (A place where you can drink hot spring water) is near the Sekizenkan into a Shima hot spring town. I drank a little water of the hot spring. The water is salty. Although the metaphor was amusing, it was a taste like the thin bean-paste juice of the sea weed taste.
