Unwind the Japanese way and visit one of the local Onsen (natural hot spring baths). Onsen offer a wonderful opportunity to experience a unique aspect of Japanese culture, bathing in mineral rich, naturally heated hot spring water. The Niseko area is particularly famous for the quality of its spring water, originating deep below the Niseko Range and Mount Yotei.
Some Onsen are included on the Niseko Central Niseko Passport, allowing Niseko Central Guests discounted entry. Pre-booking is not required and the various Onsen around the area are all uniquely wonderful, so give them all a try!
Apart from the Onsen closeby in Hirafu, popular options in the Annupuri area are the mixed public Onsen (men and women together!) at the Grand Hotel and the bookable private Onsen at Kanronomori.
