"Hakuginsou" of Tokachidake Onsen !

by Kazu

This is the stairs that connects the hotel rooms, lobby floor and hot spring spa.It has a elevator for disables. The stairs may be too steep for elders. 
 It may be difficult to relax in the cold water even after staying in the sauna for a while but the cold bathtub has an ergonomic design.
 It was cloudy early in the morning on that day. Nobody was in the hot spring spa in the morning too. Most of the guests had already left the accommodation earlier.


Illusion in the hot spring spa of Tokachidake Onsen !

 by Kazu

I was getting thirsty but the comfy hot spring spa outside of the main building of the hot spring spa "Hakuginsou". on the hillside of Mt. Tokachidake. 

The hot spring water was pouring from the crack of the rocks that had turned brown wih the ingredients of the water.
This is the inside hot spring spa with two hot-spring-waterfall to give a massage-effect to the shoulders of guests.


Tokachidake Onsen !

by Kazu

I think that I was strolling around the hot spring spa to take these photos in a limited time before the closing of the spa on that day.
So I did not have enough time to forget everything while soaking my body in the hot spring water.
Even in rainfalls, the guests in the area of the outside spa can avoid the rainfalls under this wooden roof. Almost all the guests were in their beds at that time.


To the Peak !

by Kazu

This is where I've visited and stayed so many times. This is the place of relaxation, comfort, adventure and pleasure.
 We arrived there late a night on that day, nobody was in the hot spring spa any more. I had to wrap up bathing by ten o'clock.
I hurried but took enough time to soak my body in the spa. We would seek for the peak of Mt. Tokachi-dake and the scenery from there next day. We were not sure if we would be able to do that or not at that moment. 

Meat Bar Carnival !

by Kazu

The pizza "quatro fromage" in the restaurant "Meat Bar Carnival" of Sapporo struck me as the best dish in the restaurant. Actually, I ordered the second help in the night.
Other than that, of course, the grilled beef was so nice and fit the sparkling wine to a T. The cost performance was so attractive for the citizens of Sapporo City, I think.
After beefing me up, my body wanted the relaxation because digesting a bunch of grilled beef required me a certain amount of vigor.

In the dream !

 by Kazu

It was like a world of vampires that can not exist under the sunshine. Do you want an eternal life.
 "Who wants to live forever ?" was the theme song of the movie film "Highlanders". Nobody can not bear the death of the lover, I think.
I promised to take care of my wife and hold her tight when she passes away but I am not sure if I can keep my promise but I am doing my best not to leave her alone.


In the mist of "Hakuginsou" on the hillside of Mt. Tokachi-dake !

 by Kazu

From the outside spa of the accommodation on the hillside of Mt. Tokachi-dake "Hakuginsou", the building seemed to be hidden by the mist from the hot spring spa.
In this inn, most of the guests are the trekkers to the peak of Mt. Tokachidake" and other adjacent mountains.
So, most of the guests go to bed before midnight after preparing for their attack to the peaks of mountains. That is why it was so calm in the spa in that night.
