Introduction of Spa Resort Hawaiians
Spa Resort Hawaiians is a continent of hot springs and a paradise of everlasting summer with the image of a southern country.
In 1990, it turned into a theme park with a hot spring for a total project cost of 5 billion yen.
“Spring Town" is a hot water facility where you can enjoy wearing a swimsuit. There is a hot water bath, an ondol, a mist sauna, a body shower, and the like. Because it is indoor, it is not cold even in winter.
The “Hot Spring Bath Palace" is a 960m2 large bath where you can bathe naked, and it is a hot spring facility with 24 bathtubs (for both men and women) of 12 types.
There is also a rinse-in shampoo and body soap, so you can wash your body on the way home and warm up in the hot springs.
In 2018, the Big Aloha body slider, which has the largest height difference in Japan, was also established.
In 1997, Edo Joyo Yoichi opened. The bathing area is as large as 1000m2 and it is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s largest open-air bath with the atmosphere of the Edo period. There are facilities that recreate the steam bath of the Edo period, and you can see a shadow picture while taking an open-air bath at night.
When you enter an open-air bath in Yoichi, you usually do “kake-yu", and when you go out, you use a “source" as a hot spring.
There is no washing area in Yoichi, so you can only wash your body at the hot spring bath palace, but there is a body soap and shampoo.
Of course, the Polynesian show where the hula girls dance is also held every day and is a highlight.
Spa Resort Hawaiians Sightseeing
A word from the hot spring sommelier
The source temperature of Bandai Yumoto Onsen at 58.8 ° C is 5000 liters per minute.
Another source boasts 3,000 liters per minute at 50.9 ° C.
The “Hinoki Bath” at the large public bath palace in Spring Park is 100% flowing without heating and water, so please enjoy it.
Hotel Hawaiian’s guests’ large public bath is flowing from the source with water. Will boat is 100% flowing without heating and water. Other open-air baths and hot bath facilities are circulation type.
The hot springs of the Monolith Tower, which opened in 2012, are provided using a 560-liter-per-minute hot spring, with no heating, no water, and no circulation.
The water in the pool at the water park is also a hot spring, so when you are playing, it is the same as entering the hot spring.
Opened in 1966 as the Joban Hawaiian Center as a measure to secure employment for unemployed workers due to the closing of the Joban coal mine. The hot spring that grew out during coal mining was an obstacle, but it was a successful example of successful utilization after the mine was closed.
After the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011, the M7.0 aftershock (with a seismic intensity of slightly less than 6 on April 11) damaged the water park and was unable to operate for about six months. Recovery. Partially reopened as “Kizuna Resort" in October. In February 2012, all operations resumed.
Visiting and using it is the greatest support, so I definitely want to go there.
Spa Resort Hawaiians strategy
Recommended items are as follows.
Sandals (beach sandals)
Even if you do not enter the pool, you should not wear sandals or beach sandals because you are not allowed to walk with shoes outside.
Walking on the poolside with outsole naturally causes the pool water to become contaminated.
Leisure sheet (for taking place)
A sealed case for coins is
also called a water box or water case.
Swimming pool waterproof case
* Vinyl with zipper can be used instead
Rush guard (sunscreen in summer)
If you are a family or a group couple, it is fun to have a “beach ball".
When renting, it costs 350 yen per hour.
→ Make a difference with a prominent float! !
Sunscreen, eye drops, plasters, goggles
In winter, you can wear winter clothes when you move around the building, and bath towels that wipe off water drops when you get out of the pool
The purchase of admission tickets and the payment method inside the facility have become more convenient as credit cards can be used and electronic money such as nanaco, suica and Edy can be used.
In addition, a " cashless wristband payment " that allows credit card payments at a later date using a wristband if “registered in advance" has been introduced.
However, coin lockers and vending machines for juice are paid in cash, so it would be more convenient to have some 100 yen coins.
Inflators such as floats are installed free of charge, such as by the pool.
However, care must be taken as it will burst if air is too much.
When deflating air, it is possible to evacuate the air at once if there is a thin straw, such as that included with paper bag juice.
When arriving at around noon due to long distance or accommodation, consider paying for a hula dance show in advance.
Paid seats can also be used outside of the show to provide a place to eat and rest. However, two-stage reservations are made until evening and at night.
Although it is prohibited to take places and bring food and drinks, it is sometimes called “countryside", and there are many people who do not protect (do not know?).
Unlike Disneyland, the staff doesn’t deal with it strictly, so if you bring food with onigiri or cereal (balanced nutritional food), you will not get angry.
However, from the point of view of us who observe the rules, the clerk wants those who bring in prohibited items to take proper measures.
Since rules are rules like this, it is a good idea to avoid bringing in excessively or taking up more space than necessary.
The water in the pool is also a hot spring, so you may see it when you see it.
Children always wear goggles, and adults also want to bring eye drops.
In addition, it is permitted to enter the pool while wearing glasses (glasses).
However, cleaning glasses is an essential item because the lens is also stained with chlorine.
For the time being, carry-on items such as cooler boxes, lunch boxes, juices, alcoholic beverages, snacks, dangerous goods, and pets (excluding guide dogs) are prohibited.
Sunshades and tents are also prohibited.
Water Slide Strategy
There are 3 types and 5 courses of water sliders in the water park, all of which cost 200 yen each. There are also six-time tickets and one-day tickets.
However, it is crowded on Saturdays and Sundays.
The one-day pass is a band type that can be worn on the wrist, so it cannot be used by family members.
Six-time tickets can be used together by groups and families.
If you arrive early in the morning, you’ll want to enjoy the slider once while you’re still there.
The ticket counter is at each slider platform.
During the daytime on weekends and holidays, you will have to wait for about 40 minutes or more, which is a long 120m slider of Wonder Black and Wonder Horn.
The “Wonder River" (riving down the river), which slides on a float for one person, is recommended because it has a good rotation rate of the float for one person, so even if it is crowded, it can ride in about 20 minutes.
Hula Dance Show Strategy
At the beach theater in the water park, you can watch “Hula Girl" shows such as “Polynesian Grand Stage" free of charge from about 13:30 at noon and 20:30 at night.
However, some seats have paid seats (paid reserved seats), but SS seats can also take a commemorative photo with Hula Girl after the show.
Paid seats include a drink half-price ticket as an award.
If you want to play in the pool until the last minute of the show, it is safer to buy a paying seat.
If it is not a special performance, reservation on the day is enough.
It is forbidden to leave unreserved seats with only luggage.
If you go early and reserve a seat, one of the group must be seated at all times.
If no one is present, the security guards will pack the luggage and post it.
Although it is crowded, on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, it will be almost full one hour before, so I would appreciate it if you could refer to it.
Strategy for congestion
If time permits, it is best to go first in the morning so that you can enter as soon as you open.
The picture below is 30 minutes before opening on August 11 (holiday).
A row of about 500m was already made.
During weekends and holidays, during the GW period, summer vacations, trays, and families with small children and the elderly, once you enter the building, before you change clothes, first take a “place take".
I think it is good to have a free break room on the second or third floor.
It is OK if you put a leisure seat on the seat.
And if you have a family, such as the elderly, who can’t go into the pool, it may be a good idea to have a free seat in the show to secure a seat for the Hula Girl show.
It is recommended that you use this free seat for a break, especially if you cannot come during the opening hours.
However, the unreserved seats of the show are turned around by security guards, so you need to ensure that one person is always present. Therefore, it is effective when the cooperation of the family of the elderly can be obtained.
For families with couples, children and parents, we recommend that you do not reserve a break.
If the coin locker is a 300 yen type (400 yen in some cases), it can be put in and out any number of times.
There is also a coin locker at the poolside, so you don’t have to take up space anymore, so when you take a break, it’s a good idea to sit down at a table when you eat.
Here is another recommended method:
This is an effective method when you plan to use the “hot spring public bath palace" (free of charge), which is a hot spring bathing naked when you return.
After entering the park, don’t change clothes, just go to the “Palace" changing room.
There is also a locker in Valles changing room that can be put in and out as many times as 300 yen, so it is a way to base that locker.
Since it is a changing room (dressing room), you can change into swimwear and there is a dehydrator.
There is no inconvenience if you change clothes from your swimsuit to your everyday clothes when you return.
If you go home after bathing and shampooing in this way, I think it would be more convenient to start with a locker at the Palace.
If you use the changing rooms on the 3rd or 4th floor, you may need to go back and forth to the valley to get your private clothes, If you put it in, it can be done with a locker only at the palace.
By the way, “Yoichi" is an open-air bath where you can also naked, but Yoichi has no shower, so you can not wash your body.
However, in any case, when you move around the building, air conditioning is effective even in summer and the restaurant becomes chilly, so it is better for children to have a bath style.
Therefore, a locker that can be purchased at the poolside for 300 yen is convenient.
Until a while ago, there was no locker on the poolside, so we recommended taking place, but if you use a locker that can be put in and out well, you can say that you do not need to take place such as storing luggage It is a view.
Infants who do not have diapers cannot enter the pool or hot springs with swimwear.
However, at “Waiwai Ohana”, there is a swimming pool “Angel’s Water” where you can wear swimming diapers.
There are no special restrictions on hot springs where you can enter naked such as Yoichi.
Transportation to the Spa Resort Hawaiians
Free buses from Tokyo to Hawaiians are also operated by reservation, but the operating hours for guests. If you visit on a day trip, it is better to go by car.
