* Roses that bloom in autumn *
Some varieties of roses that bloom only once a year are called “once bloomers,” and others that bloom several times a year are called “repeat bloomers.”
The first roses to bloom in early summer are magnificent both in size and volume.
But roses that are deeper in color, richer in fragrance, more beautiful, and better in quality are said to bloom in autumn.
Lower temperatures and wider temperature differences between day and night make their growth slower, and the larger amounts of pigments and fragrance components accumulated in the buds lead to the deeper color and richer fragrance.
Iwamizawa Rose Garden has about 400 repeat bloomers among its 630 varieties, and you can enjoy the spectacle of roses in full bloom from mid-September to mid-October.

Natural hot spring bathing in the Southern Sorachi region (The photo was taken at “Taiko-no-yu” in Mikasa City.)

The Southern Sorachi region has many excellent hot spring facilities, commonly used by local people, for day trips.
You can spend all day relaxing and enjoying hot spring bathing and saunas, dining at a restaurant, and taking a nap in a free lounge. The hot spring baths here are not as big as the famous ones in Hokkaido, but you can experience local daily life in Hokkaido and Japan as a whole.
Admission to a hot spring facility is rather inexpensive. A special package admission is also offered that includes a gown, face towel, and bath towel.
You can use shampoo, body wash, and a hair dryer for free.
Just come “empty-handed” and enjoy bathing! Fine outdoor baths and sauna facilities are also available.

You can spend time relaxing in a free lounge and take a rest.

Please enjoy dining at a restaurant in the facility (meals and admission are charged extra).
Various dishes are available, such as ramen, yakisoba (fried noodles), soba noodles, udon noodles, fried pork, and bowls of rice with food on top.
Enjoy a Japanese-style eating facility. There you can choose Japanese-style seating on tatami mats, or Western-style seating with a table and chairs.
