On October 14, 2013, I visited the Kurobe dam where I had always wanted to go. This year is the anniversary of the 50th anniversary of the completion of the Kurobe Dam, and since the water discharge of the dam is until October 15, it was the last chance this year as a timing to go to Kurobe Dam, and if you extend your legs a little further, it is Tateyama-Murodo, There is a “mikuraike onsen” which is famous as a hot spring in Japan at the highest altitude in Murodo, and it is weak to the word “Japan”, and it is not possible to miss this chance of the lifetime for me in the plan of the Kurobe Dam sightseeing I decided to incorporate the plan of “bathing pond Onsen” in the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine route which accesses Tateyama Kurobe, there is a route from the Nagano prefecture side and the route from Toyama Prefecture side, but this time is an approach from the Nagano Prefecture side. I took the Sekiden trolley bus from Ogizawa station in Omachi City and headed to Kurobe Dam and arrived at Kurobe Dam in just 15 minutes. Kurobe Dam is an image of the unexplored region, but it is really quick when you use the Sekiden trolley bus This day was autumn weather, and I was able to enjoy the rainbow over the water of the dam with the foliage of the autumn leaves The Kurobe Dam tour was rounded up in about 1 hour and 30 minutes and headed to the room hall. The changed is a cable car, a ropeway, and a trolley bus and a variety of rides.
I rarely walk, but because of the last day of the three consecutive holidays, no rides can sit in the congestion like a commuter rush, it was quite hard work but I arrived at the room hall in about 50 minutes from Kurobe Dam. I arrived at the hall at about 10am. In order to avoid the crowds, I went out to take a walk in the hall after an early lunch at a restaurant. Before the majestic scenery of Tateyama, it does not go to the reason that it is truly a hot spring only. I took a leisurely stroll around the pond excursion course (about 1 hour) and enjoyed the ivory tower view, but the autumnal leaves were finished, but towering tateyama is just a beautiful sky at noon, and finally my final purpose “Mikuraike Onsen” arrives. “Mikuraike Onsen” is a facility that mixes the mountain hut and the Hot Spring Inn (Japan member) which becomes the base of the climbing mountain, and the facilities are considerably large, and crowded with the climber and the visitor who takes lunch in the restaurant. However, because my purpose is only a hot spring, I pay 600 yen for a fee and go straight to the bathroom. At “Mikuraike Onsen”, if you pay a fee, you get an octagonal entrance ticket which can be used for a coaster as a bathing memorial, and there is a hot spring in Japan (altitude 2, 410m). As a hot spring Inn, “Mikuraike Onsen” is the highest place in Japan. There are other facilities that are pulling the hot spring from the Hell Valley (altitude of 2, 300m) which is “the source which is at the highest level in Japan” as well as “Mikuroike Onsen”, but is a little lower than “Mikuri pond hot Spring”.
Since there is no open-air bath in this facility, the “Yunoyu Onsen” open-air bath (2, 150 m) in Nagano Prefecture Honzawa Hot spring is the highest in Japan. The expectation that it will be vacant if lunchtime is betrayed, and the undressing basket when entering the dressing room is already packed thank you well this is that there is no way if it is during the three consecutive holidays.
There was no room in the washing room in the full state even if I entered the bathroom, and I slipped into the bathtub by the bath tub. The bathtub is the one that the bathtub is partitioned into two sizes, the narrower is suitable, and the wider is a slightly lukewarm temperature setting. There is a hot spring in both bathtubs, and of course, 100% of the source is poured. First of all, I entered a vacant small tub. Hot water seems to be a hot spring in the mountain, and thins sulfur smell. And the taste is sour, feel is strong slimy feeling this bath feeling is similar to the feeling that the hot water of Kusatsu Onsen was thinned. Because it is the type of hot water that cannot be seen very much in Nagano prefecture, it is a spring quality of a simple acidic spring (simple sulfur spring when the information of old Times is seen), and it comes to be glad to come and it is a fumarite reclamation fountain unexpectedly. There is a Hell valley which is a source in the immediate vicinity of the facility, and a sulfur smell fragrant steam rises and thick, and the hot spring springs becomes a river and flows, but does not use the hot spring, and artificially creates the hot spring from steam purposely. There might be a reason for something, but since it has become a hot spring enough individuality in the fumaroaeration spring, you will not be bothered. By the way, there is a promenade in the Hell Valley before it seems to have been able to pass, but now is off-limits because the hydrogen sulfide concentration has risen and moved to a large tub to tries of vacant, it was a pleasant hot water temperature that can be long hot water just because the altitude is high,
I think it’s dangerous to have a long bath. The hot water in the bathtub is not the same as the hot water in the bathtub, but it felt like it was slightly sour. “Hot Springs in Japan” was able to satisfy not only the novelty but also in respect of the hot water. The round-trip fee between Ogizawa station and Murodo station is 8,800 yen, so it is not a place to come many times, but after bathing the pond hot springs in the hot spring that makes you want to come again , I returned to Murodo station and got back home. I left the room one hour earlier than the plan without sitting in the chair all except the first Tateyama Tunnel trolley bus return, there is a waiting time of the ropeway, etc. finally arrived at Ogizawa station as planned. Going to the room hall in a day trip becomes a little busy process, so if you enjoy the Kurobe Dam and the room hall stroll slowly, I think that it is good to go at the off-season or staying cliff.
