As its name suggests, the fact that this spa is 100 yards above ground is it’s the biggest selling point. This large public bath made good use of its location. Its glass walls overlooking the city center of Sapporo make it a very popular spot day and night! You can bathe while enjoying the sparkling night view. Amazingly, the hot water is brought up from a 1,000 meters underground natural spring!

They have a specially decorated zone for women and men!

They have various hot bath facilities such as natural hot spring bath and vibrant bath, Finnish sauna, and a steam sauna. The bathing area for the women is a bright design, mostly white. The men’s spa is heavier design using stone texture and black. At night the atmosphere will change a lot, so we recommend experiencing the spa both day and night if possible.
