Tappizaki Onsen

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
A hot spring owned and operated by Hotel Tappi located in Tappizaki Onsen, itself located inside Tsugaru Quasi-National Park. The waters of this calcium sodium sulfate spring are said to be effective for general indication and treat such ailments as hardening of the arteries, cuts, burns, and chronic skin diseases. The hotel's large indoor baths and open air bath offer a sweeping view of the Mountains of Hokkaido on clear days and, at night, majestic, star-filled skies and traditional fishing lure fires. The hotel's bathhouse facilities are open to non-guests as well but entry may be difficult during busy times, so be sure to check in advance. Visitors are also encouraged to check out local sightseeing destinations such as the Tappizaki Lighthouse, selected as one of Japan's 50 best lighthouses; monument to renowned author Osamu Dazai; and the Seikan Tunnel Museum. The local seafood is also exquisite thanks to the Tsugaru Strait, where warm and cold currents collide, resulting in cool water temperatures and fish which bear a thick layer of tasty fat.
