One night trip to Nasu onsen !

This is an article about my one-day trip to Nasushiobara with my mother to cure her wound.

She had a wine in the shinkansen.
She might to disinfect her internal before onsen…..:P
She said it was tasty 🙂

Shinkansen to Nasu Shiobara station with alcoholic drinks

母の湯治に同行。で、母は恒例のアルコール消毒中・・・(・∀・)ニヤ

We got to Nasushiobara station.

Appearance, Nasu Shiobara station (Nasu Shiobara)

那須塩原駅到着。もっと開拓されたところかと思ったら何にもない!!!

I had expected that around Natushiobara station is urban place.
But far from urban, and there are nothing to be seen.  Empty !
There are no cafes and shops in the station, too. Ah, two old cafe were there. But we didn’t want to be into there.

We had much time until our bus came.
So I took my mobile phone and searched somewhere to have tea or coffee.
Then I found a nice cafe within 10 minutes walk from the station.

Actually, it took 15 minutes 😛

This is the cafe.

I felt like wanting the pink teapot ! Those are ‘nanbu’ lacquer. Cute!

店内は白で統一されていて南部漆器の茶器が飾ってある。ピンクのやつかわいー♪

Handmade ginger ale. (手作りジンジャーエール) 630 yen

ジンジャーエールを注文。そこに沈んでるのは全部すりおろし生姜!

Plenty of  real grated ginger was under the glass 😛 So spicy, but it tasted good.

My mother ordered a hot tea that is named “Ekaterina” (エカテリーナ, 682 yen). As I thought, the teapot is cute !

こちらは母が飲んだ、「エカテリーナ」という素敵な名前の紅茶。

Thanks to the drink, though it was so cold day that day, but I never felt chill 🙂 Ginger have great power!

We spent time at the cafe until the time came, and then we went back to the station.
On arriving at the station,  our bus came.

It took near 90 minutes to our hotel from the station. It took more time than I had expected 🙁

Our hotel’s name was Matsukawaya.

Why did we go to the hotel ?

Of course, the hotel have good hotspring 😀

The indoor bath was filled with white onsen water !
This onsen water is sulfur spring 😀

内湯にはなみなみと鹿の湯の源泉がヽ(´ー`)ノ玉子湯と同じ硫黄泉です。。。って玉子湯のことばかり考えてるな

This hotel get famous onsen water from outside that is named “Shika-no-yu(鹿の湯).
This onsen water is the oldest discovored onsen water around Nasu.
Shika-no-yu means “deer’s water”.

Shikanoyu, Matsukawaya (Nasu Shiobara)

昔、鹿がこの温泉に入って傷をいやしたと伝えられることから名づけられた温泉。外から引っ張ってきてます。

It is deprived that a deer soaked his body to healed his wound in ancient times.

Open-air bath, too.

Open-air bath, Matsukawaya (Nasu Shiobara)

露天風呂も小さいけどあります。高台に立ってるので眺望が良いですヽ(´ー`)ノ

Because the hotel is on a hill, the open-air bath commands a fine view 🙂

Our room. No.505

お部屋です。505号室。

View out of the window wasn’t good. But we understood because we took very inexpensive plan.

Room, Matsukawaya (Nasu Shiobara)

部屋。窓からの眺望はイマイチだった。

Our dinner was served in our room.  Though we took a inexpensive plan, as a while, tasted good, especially, sukiyaki. Though the meat was tough and chewy.

夕食。格安プランだったので期待しなかったけど、案外よかった。すきやき、おいしかった(*´Д`)肉は硬かったけど。

Certainly, this onsen was very nice, but Tamagoyu is No.1 for me !
