Global rating :     
This large hotel offers an interesting selection of baths. Visitors can first enjoy a bath for feet, before heading to the mixed outside bath (a segregated rotenburo is also available), which is separated from the nearby wood by a small fence. Bathing is really pleasant, as the bath is in a very quiet surrounding. The inside installations are also worth a visit.

Size :    
Only one outside mixed bath, but a rather large one.

View :    
On the wood... a nice view both in summer and winter.

Modesty :     
Separated entrance for the bath and complete sheltered location

Area :      
Lake Kussharo is a beautiful caldera lake located in Akan National Park. With a circumference of 57 kilometers (maximum depth of 118 meters), it is the 5th largest lake in Japan. The Wakoto peninsula is one of the nicest place around the lake, with one free rotenburo). Boat, canoes and kayaks can be rented, and are popular in summer. In winter, the lake might freeze. Close to Lake Kussharo, the town of Kawayu Onsen is a typical uninspiring japanese onsen town, which lacks the beautiful view of the nearby lake. Mt. Iou can easily be reached, and is an active 500 meters high volcano, where acid smokes and solid sulfur can be observed. Finally, the most attractive place of the area is probably Lake Mashu, a beautiful and mysterious lake with a tiny island, where Ainu gods were supposed to live; This island rises 230 meters from the bottom of the lake. The shore of the lake is kept completely wild, and only three observatory points are available. Be aware that most of the days, the lake can be hidden from the viewers by a very dense fog.
