Spa Resort Hawaiians is a large leisure park that utilizes the natural hot springs of the area. In the large dome, the temperature is set at 28 degrees Celsius all year round, creating a Hawaiian atmosphere.
The Largest Outdoor Hot Spring In The World
The site is 6 times as big as Tokyo Dome and there are many facilities that utilize the healing properties of the hot water. There is a large open-air bath that is actually listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest outdoor open-air hot spring bath in the world. You can enjoy the thrill and speed of the rides, or just relax and appreciate the Polynesian Dance Show and the tropical atmosphere. With five theme parks (Water Park, Spring Park, Spa Garden PAREO, Edo Jowa Yoichi, ViR PORT) each exhibiting a distinct personality, this is the ideal hot spring paradise.
One of the Resort’s most well-known features is its dance troupe. Rather than inviting an outside troupe to perform, the company decided to create its own, and initially trained 18 employees’ daughters. In the very close-knit mining community, entire families would work at the Resort.
One Of The Best Hot Spring Theme Parks In Japan
Nakamura intentionally kept the hotel small at the beginning, so the local ryokan would benefit from the increased business, and purchase as much as possible from local suppliers.
Its popularity reached its peak in 1970–71, as attendance passed 1.55 million visitors per year. Spa Resort Hawaiians were ranked No.1 among nationwide facilities in the “Hot Spring Theme Park Ranking” of the Nikkei Home Publishing, INC. publication, “Nikkei Trendy May Issue,” with a total of 76 points.
Spa Resort Hawaiians have located 1km from the Iwaki Yumoto Interchange (5 minutes by car).
