Shinshinotsu hot spring New-Shinotsu-Club-Iris ***

The natural hot spring of the Ishikari plain


The Shinshinotsu-mura is situated in the lower stream of a river of the Ishikari river. It is the village where exploitation started in the Meiji period and where a history is new. It is a vast farm village appropriate for Hokkaido. The Shinshinotsu hot spring is in two places, a municipal hotel and the clubhouse of a golf course. We came to the New Shinotsu Club Iris in the clubhouse this time.

The first floor of the building is a clubhouse and the second floor is the bathroom of a hot spring. A sauna and a cascade bath are in a bathroom and an open-air bath is situated in a veranda.

Visit Day: 1998 December


The nature of the water of a hot spring is a blackish brown hot brine spring (sodium chloride spring). The temperature of the fountainhead is 30 centigrades. From the open-air bath, the country zone of the Ishikari plain is visible. Since it was the snowy season, it is a whole-surface snow field. Although temperature is the freezing point, while I am soaking in the hot spring, I do not feel cold. After a while, snow lay on my head.

Since the main bath is covered with the clean tile, it is pleasant. Since the quantity of a hot spring is abundant, a main bath is also blackish brown hot spring water. There are also a rest room and a restaurant. It seems that it is comparatively vacant although it is near from Sapporo. (about 1 hour by car)
