Since the trip to Bessho Onsen in January, I did not have to travel with my family, so I decided to take a trip to Oku-Hida hot spring in Gifu Prefecture in accordance with my business in Azumino city. It is supposed to be one hour and 30 minutes by car from Azumino City to Okuhida Onsengo. It took me almost two hours to get caught up in a traffic jam due to an accident in Kamikochi. There is no detour in this area, so there is no escape route even if you are stuck in traffic jams. I think it’s better to be lucky if you’re just about half an hour late. Okuhida Onsen is formed in five hot Springs (Hirayu, Shin-Hirayu, Fukuchi, Tochio, Shin-Hotaka). Each of the hot springs has its own scale, and if you look at it as a spa area, it is quite large.
There is a hot spring area named “○ ○ Onsen” in Nagano Prefecture, but there will not be a large scale like this here. In the Okuhida hot spring, this destination is located in the furthest distance from Shin-Hotaka Onsen Nagano Prefecture, through the AWA Tunnel.
There is “Hotaka Onsen” in Azumino city in Nagano Prefecture, but it is often mistaken or “Azumino Hotaka Onsen”. The hotel is a small ryokan with 8 rooms. The reason I decided here is that the Japanese-style ryokan is a French meal, and the reviews were very high. Family Service is the only purpose, there are five private baths (indoor bath 3, open-air bath 2) Hot Springs, The charm is enough because it is all over the sink. After tasting the French dinner, the system of this inn to the indoor Bath “dew (b) of the hot water” was reserved immediately PM3:00 ~ PM9:00 Charter bath is reserved, PM9:0 After 0, it is free to use it if vacant. If that is the aim of course is complete when entering the bathroom, the first thing to notice is that the floor is tatami-mat flooring. This is relieved without slipping at this time, because the daughter of one and a half was together, when washing the body, I was feeling good to sit on the floor. The bathtub is a hinoki bath.
I like the warmth of the bathtub in the wood, and the fragrance is good. All three indoor bath of this facility are tatami-mat and cypress baths. The hot water uses a different thing in the indoor bath and the outdoor bath, and indoor bath uses the Tochio hot spring. Because of the high temperature, it is a 5 to 20% hydrolysis, but the water quality is a simple hot spring that is colorless and transparent, tasteless and odorless and not unique, but it is fresh and has a lot of input. The hot water temperature is also suitable for children to enter. There was no need to worry about the surroundings, and it was an ideal environment to put a young child in the hot spring and went into the open-air bath “Utase no Yu”. It is bathing alone from here. The origin of the name of the open air is probably because it is poured into hot water. However, the hot water is actually not usable as a hot water because it is made to hit the outdoor bath is surrounded by a wall but the view does not work, the atmosphere is snug in the garden style is good. And, it is unusual that the gravel is paved in the bottom of the bathtub. It is a very good idea. The hot spring of the outdoor bath is a mixed spring of Kamata hot spring and Tochio Onsen, and Kamata Onsen is the sodium bicarbonate and chloride spring, but it is a simple hot springs by mixing with Tochio hot spring. The actual water is colorless and transparent, tasteless, and has a slight tidal smell and a sense of perisube. Perhaps this fragrance and Tsursube feel are the individuality of Kamata Onsen.
There are two places, and there is a burnt sulfur smell and taste in the one that becomes like the hot water, and this might be Kamata hot spring. Once I stuffs back to my room, I slept and restarted the hot water. First of all, it was bathing to indoor bath “Yu of the circumference (b)”. The bath is narrow compared to other bathrooms, and the bathtub is the last minute for two people. The hot water is a little hot and fresh because there is still a lot of input of the hot water. This bathroom will be the best if you go in quickly.
The bath feeling was not much different from the dew water. Next, to “multi-season hot spring” of the outdoor bath. This name seems to be because the source is poured like a waterfall. The gravel is also the same. Is the area a little wider than the hot spring of the song Se? The statue of the Kappa is enshrined on a rock and the night is a little creepy. The individuality of the water seems to remain stronger than the water of the song Se slightly, hot water here in the chartered Bath of five places was the hottest,
I liked the atmosphere as an open-air bath Well, the new Hodaka Onsen is famous for its outdoor bath, which has a splendid view such as the Karukaya sou, the spear saw, and the field’s flower villa, but it is heaven enough to monopolize the bathtub slowly alone in the open air that there is no view as a small The remaining indoor bath is the water of the leaves. This one was bathing at five in the morning. The size of the bathroom is the most widely in the indoor bath and the bathtub is about the same as dew water. The bath is almost the same as the water of the dew. This is the five charter Bath complete. After breakfast, we went into two outdoor baths and enjoyed a total of seven bathing during our stay. The feeling of tiredness will remain when you enter this much, but if you think you can monopolize the chartered Bath, it will enter the vacant stuffs. I could enjoy the hot springs too much. Well, in the part other than the hot spring, the characteristic of this inn is still a meal. It is a Japanese-style ryokan where you look at, the dining room divided into private rooms also has become a Japanese restaurant, the dish that comes out is French. Though it is a disproportionate combination, it was delicious according to reputation, and the amount was the one to become satiety at the end and to satisfy. Especially, the stewed foie gras and black Wagyu beef cheek is excellent, so the cost performance is great (although it’s self-serving). At this level, I was surprised that it is not so major in Okuhida Onsen, and I felt the depth of Okuhida onsen. If you have a chance, I’d like to stay at Okuhida Ryokan!
