|Mizunashi Kaihin Onsen|
Mizunashi kaihin onsen was the first hot spring I got in in Hokkaido. It was late in the evening when I arrived, and I was pretty cold because I had not brought enough clothes. As I got down to the hot spring, a family was just getting in their clothes. We exchanged a few words and I stripped down and got in. The water was not that hot, more like luke warm, but it was nice anyway. I moved down into one of the other concrete squares closest to the sea and sat there for a while. I could hear the waves, and before I knew it, feel them too. There was not any bottom end in the concrete square, because as the waves hit it, the water level rose a bit, and it got significantly colder than before. I escaped out of that concrete square and went back to another warmer one.
The moon was full and I enjoyed a beautiful view of the sea. As I was sitting in one of the concrete squares it looked almost as if the walls were alive, they seemed to keep changing texture. I found out in the morning, after going again, that there were cockroach-looking insects all over the walls. It kind of took the enjoyment out of the hot spring, so I would strongly suggest other people not to get in this hot spring until it gets dark.
