Abashiri Kohan Onsen

Artesian springs with a superb view of Lake Abashiri

Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

Abashirikohan Onsen is located on the top of a hill in the Abashiri Quasi-National Park of Abashiri City, in the northeastern part of Hokkaido, which commands a view of Lake Abashiri.
In this magnificent Quasi-National Park, there are 7 lagoons such as Lake Abashiri, Abashiri and Memanbetsu Rivers and Yobito Peninsula with a Japanese skunk cabbage colony; it is a rich repository of natural resources.
The spa village by the lake at the foot of Mt. Tento is dotted with modern hotels and Japanese-style inns. It is possible to admire Shiretoko Peninsula and Mt. Meakan far away from the lookout platform when the weather is fine.

Effects and characteristics of Hot Springs

The characteristic of Abashirikohan Onsen is that each of the inns by the lake has its own artesian spring. This means that there are so many spring sources in this area, which is very rare throughout the whole country.
Each spring source differs from the others, so you can enjoy various spring qualities at each inn. The chloride spring, which is one of the major qualities, is considered to be effective not only against arthralgia and muscle pain but also against cold constitution and low back pain.
