Hidden hot spring can be inundated if river rises
Sep 2017 • Couples
Located at the end of a long road and beyond the campground in the southeastern corner of Daizetsusan National Park, Shikanoyu is a mixed-bathing riverside rotenburo that is popular with the nature crowd and is known throughout Japan. Admission is free. Parking is on the south end of the campground, after which you must walk through the campground to find the onsen. At times there is a set of boxes beside the path a bit above the hot spring where you can change clothes. We went just after a big rain, and there was no changing place and the had risen over the path to the onsen and had cooled off the water. We didn't enter and left this onsen for a later encounter.
The location looks ideal with plenty of shade during hot summer days. The road to the hot spring may be closed during winter snowfall. Visited 9/19/2017.
