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


We got to Nasushiobara station.

Appearance, Nasu Shiobara station (Nasu Shiobara)


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.

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 !

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.

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”.

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

Open-air bath, too.

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

Our room. No.505

Our room 505, Matsukawaya (Nasu Shiobara)


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

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.

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