Irihata Onsen Semenoyu

1-3-1 Wagacho Iwasaki Shinden, Kitakami-shi, Iwate (株)入畑温泉


A great place to refresh yourself after activities

This onsen lodge situated along a beautiful mountain stream is located near the Geto Kogen Ski Resort, a place famous for its heavy snowfall.

It is popular with tourists for its reasonable accommodation fees, but is also loved by the locals for its cheap day trip onsen.

Day trip bathing is available until 19:00, so you can visit to refresh yourself after a day of winter activities. There is also a restaurant where you can enjoy soba, udon, or ramen set meals for lunch.

The onsen is a slightly alkaline simple spring that is gentle on the skin. It is rich in radium which helps keeps your body warm. The bath area has an indoor bath and an electric bath, and features a large window that offers a great view of the valley outside.

The nearby Geto Kogen Ski Resort is known for its high amount of snowfall, and has become a popular place for its rich variety of snow activities including skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snow rafting, and snowshoe trekking.

In the green season, you can go stand up paddleboarding (SUP) on the emerald blue waters of the Irihata Dam lake. Even beginners can enjoy it after learning the basics through a 20-minute lecture.

To get to this place, you can take a 3-hour ride on the Tohoku Shinkasen from Tokyo, getting off at JR Kitakami Station. You can then take the free shuttle bus from Kitakami Station. By car, it is around 12 minutes from the Kitakami Nishi IC on the Akita Expressway. In winter, there is a free shuttle bus from the lodge to the ski resort.

This place is great as a base for enjoying the nature activities of Geto Kogen, and it also lets you relax and warm your body up in a hot spring.
