The “Ougon no Yu” in Tsubame Onsen, Myoko City is steadily preparing for the opening on the 20th of this month.
Tsubame Onsen “Ougon no Yu” is located at an altitude of 1100 meters, about 200 meters above the hot spring town.The snowfall on this morning was about 1 meter and 80 centimeters.Preparations are underway to clean the bath and remove snow from the surrounding area for the opening on the 20th of this month.
Since the open-air bath is surrounded by snow, you cannot see the nearby “Mt. Myoko”, but you can enjoy the magnificent nature in the remaining snow.The temperature of the hot spring is 43 degrees.
Mr. Shigeta Fujimaki
“I can’t enjoy this kind of scenery so much. The sun rises from here, and there’s nothing to say! It’s hard in the world, so I want you to stop by at such times and relax in the natural world.”
“Ougon no Yu” is free to take a bath.It is divided into men’s and women’s baths.To use the hot springs, you need boots to walk on the snowy road.
Another open-air bath, “Kawara no Yu”, is scheduled to open in late May.
The 2021 opening will be on Saturday, March 20th.
