A quick onsen break Jul 31, 2011
After a leisurely hike around one of the trails of Mt Asahidake, I decided to have one of my favorite past Japanese time. ONSEN BATH! A dip in the hot spring is just the thing to relaxed my muscles...

Daisetsuzan Shirakaba-so is a youth hostel located at the foot of Mt Asahidake in the Daisetsuan National Park, about 5 to 10-min walk from the Mt Asahidake Information center and Asahidake Ropeway station (to Sugatami Area where the hiking trails begin).

It is a log cabin youth hostel. Since I was there only for the onsen bath, I cannot say how the hostel is except that it looked clean and well-managed.

At the front desk, I paid for the onsen fee (400 yen + 200yen towel). The baths area separated by gender with color flags indicative of which gender the baths is for (red for female; blue for male).

Inside the female onsen area, there is a changing area. The bathing area is clean - it is cleaned daily, and they provide body wash and shampoo/conditioner. There is an indoor bath and an outdoor bath. Both are 100% hot spring water and very hot! I loved it! The outdoor bath is very rustic, lined with slabs of stones and surrounded with greenery.

I highly recommend an onsen bath after a hike!
