The product of Lake Mashu’s underground water and Mount Io’s warming phenomenon, the spring water feeding the hot springs of Kawayu is a rarity in Japan. While here, be sure to soak in the alum and vitriol springs that contain highly acidic hydrogen sulfide, a rare type of spring water. The Kinkiyu’s grand bath can also be experienced at three temperatures: hot, warm, and lukewarm. After your bath, you will be treated to a Japanese Kaiseki-style dinner feast featuring Hokkaido seafood and beef. With a wide range of rooms to choose from, such as Japanese tatami rooms and Western-Japanese style rooms, you will not leave this relaxing hot spring disappointed.
