Niseko Onsen Guide

Niseko is famous for its powder snow and great wine & dine experience. But did you know there are more than 25 onsens (natural hot springs) around Niseko area?! In other spring resorts, there is a reservoir underground that all the different hotels in a resort draw from the same water source. But in Niseko, each hotel or spa has dug its own bore to the water so they can provide different types of water with different minerals , colours and health benefits.

We asked 4 onsen professionals to share their tips and spots and you can find the simple guide here!
