If you ride a tram bound for Yunokawa and get off at Yunokawa Onsen Station, the next to last station, you will find Yunokawa Onsen, one of the largest hot springs in Hokkaido. Being close to the center of Hakodate and Hakodate Airport, it is convenient to take a day trip and soak in a bath. Also, you can stay at a hotel or ryokan, enjoying the onsen atmosphere in a more leisurely manner. This spa was opened in 1653. Its water is rich in chloride salt, and is good for rheumatism and neuralgia. During the peak season of squid-fishing from summer to autumn, night fishing fires on fishing boats can be seen bobbing on the ocean. Leisurely soaking in a big bath, gazing at the fires out on the ocean, is sure to be a memorable experience.
