Marukoma Onsen

Onsen in Shikotsu-ko

On the surface, Marukoma Onsen is a typical ageing resort hotel, but the concrete facade hides a fantastic collection of baths – which are open to day trippers. The large rotemburo (outdoor bath) looks right over Shikotsu-ko.

The waters, high in sodium and calcium, are said to be good for fatigue. Shampoo etc is provided; bring your own towel.
