  • あっさりした蔵王
    4.0 Reviewed:2020.12.01
    山形側の蔵王とは泉質も街の雰囲気も違う、宮城側の蔵王、遠刈田温泉。ごぢんまりとしていて、泉質も含めてあっさりした温泉街です。
  • 優しい泉質

    蔵王山の麓でも山形県側とは違い、宮城県の泉質は柔らかいです。夏の避暑として利用しました、朝晩は涼しく汗をかくことなく快適に過ごせます。別荘地のコテージを旅行すると、家族でも割安です。
  • コロナ騒ぎの中、繁盛してるところもある

    基本的には閑散としていましたが、私がお世話になった星灯りの宿まほろばはお客ぎっしり。繁盛してました。店はそれなりにありますし、地酒を置く酒屋さん、こけしが有名なので、お土産も買えます。お湯は透明な方だけしか知りませんが、湯から出たあとに汗がブワァ。いいですよ。
