Just a stone bath by the sea
Sep 2018 • Couples
This is a man-made stone bath by the sea with water pumped in from elsewhere. It may well be used by fishermen but when my wife and I visited, it was roped off and could barely be seen behind the concrete balls when looking from the roadside. What made the drive here worthwhile was found at the end of the road. A river flows into the sea and hundreds of salmon were fighting their way up upstream. Only the strong would survive.

In the middle of nowhere except by the seashore
Sep 2017 • Couples
An open-air hot spring used predominately by fishermen, Aidomari onsen is located at the end of Route 87 on the eastern side of the Shiretoko peninsula. It is located below the sea wall by the seashore and has hot water whether the tide is in or out, but is highly dependent on the weather. When we went, there was a partial hut covering the hot spring (open to the sea, but closed on three sides). There had been a typhoon the week before, and the hut was in disrepair. As it was made of logs and blue tarp, I suspect the hut was waiting for the local fishermen to decide to use it again before it would be repaired. Photos of it from other times did not have the hut around the spring. Like Seseki onsen two kilometers away, there was parking for two or three cars and an English-language sign at the parking area. To get to the hot spring, wear good shoes and climb over the sea wall and along the rocks to the spring. There are no changing facilities but if the hut is up there is a separate area for men and women. Visited 9/23/2017.

Amazing onsen several feet from the Sea of Okhotsk
Jun 2013 • Couples
Amongst those who visit Hokkaido, few might go to Shiretoko. Amongst those who visit Shiretoko, few might visit Rausu. Amongst those who visit Rausu, few might visit Aidomari. This is how quiet this place is. Driving up the coast from Rausu to Shiretoko, the number of houses, the number of cars and the number of people gradually diminish. At the end, you see this onsen and then the road ends. It feels like this is the end of everything.

Aidomari and Aidomari Onsen are worth going, not because you get to see a lot, but rather because you don't get to see much. You then get to have a lot of feelings inside you (sort of like, nothing else matters). You get to feel absolute tranquility.
