Furoufushi-Onsen (Hot Springs for eternal youth and immortality), Aomori
This place is the famous hot spring accommodation located in the reef of Koganesaki West Aomori where stuck out of the Sea of Japan. This place had an image of being “an unexplored region.” before, but it is known as a hotel with the open‐air bath, and many tourists visit here now, because it had often been introduced on TV or in newspapers recently.
It is an outstanding location overlooking the Sea of Japan, the moment when the setting sun is about to sink below the horizon from here is splendid, and there are many tourists visiting for the express purpose of seeing it.
The entrance of the Furoufushi-Onsen in Koganesaki. Only seeing this signboard, and you feel irresistibly higher expectations.
You see setting sun sinking into the Sea of Japan in front of you, and you can see a state of the sunset till the last clearly while you are soaking in the hot spring.
After the sun sank, you can soak there until it becomes dark immersing in an aftertaste of the sunset. It’s fantastic!
The reason why hot water of Furoufushi-Onsen is brown is that the iron contained has oxidized. Moreover, seemingly the salt concentration of hot water will be high, and it is salty if it licks.
Although it is said that there was only one bathtub for mixed bathing from the first, there are two bathtubs, for mixed bathing and for women, now.
The one-day bathing is until 16:00, and it is used as a bath only for a lodger after 16:00.
