Niseko Onsen


Geothermal hotspring bathhouses in the Niseko area are plentiful and varied, some of which were founded and developed over 100 years ago. Here is a short list of some of the more popular and accessible ‘onsen’ in Niseko:

  • Yukoro Onsen– The perennial favorite for visitors to the Hirafu area, this onsen is priced right and easily accessible.
  • Goshiki Onsen – This onsen located deep in the mountains is a bit of a drive, but offers an excellent and authentic natural hotspring experience any time of year.
  • Yugokoro-Tei Onsen – An great onsen that has large outdoor baths and beautiful Japanese style. Early morning bath also available some days
  • Weiss Hotel Onsen – Another slightly remote onsen, Weiss is has beautifully finished outdoor baths in a peaceful forest setting
