Shikotsukonsen (支笏湖温泉)


Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

Mystical Lake Shikotsu is surrounded by virgin forest. The springs of Shikotsuko Onsen, situated along the lake's east bank, were bored in 1974. Located in an area where sightseeing boats dock, there are many restaurants and souvenir shops in the district. The waters of the area's hypotonic mildly alkaline springs are said to treat a wide range of ailments, including nerve pain, muscle soreness, and joint pain, in addition to aiding recovery from fatigue; they are also drinkable. Akihime Ontama Rice is a local specialty dish made with kokanee salmon transplanted to Lake Shikotsu from Lake Akan, and visitors can try this tasty meal at any of the hot spring inns in the area. Junmaishu sake and shochu liquors made with Lake Shikotsu water make for perfect souvenirs. Visitors can also find many elegant Japanese and Western style confections made with the finest ingredients in the area.

The area is noted for its hot springs, majestic beauty, places for peaceful relaxation, and its lake-caught Kokanee salmon. We purchased some grilled salmon, and ate it in an open-air park setting...

Compared to other lakes, the road to this lake is very beautiful. This is really a countryside and u are nowhere but in the mountains. The lake is huge, like a sea. The hot spring here is also nice...

          Hokkaido Areas


          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
