Niseko, like the rest of Japan, has an abundance of natural hot springs. The Japanese-style hot spring is called an onsen, and there are over 15 different onsen scattered across the Niseko region alone. To qualify as onsen, waters must be naturally heated and sufficiently mineral rich. A dip into these waters is therapeutic and incredibly relaxing, especially after a day on the ski slopes. Visiting in the summer? Time your onsen visit to coincide with sunset over Yotei - it’s magic. Not sure which onsens to visit? Vacation Niseko has come up with a list of highly recommended onsens in Niseko region. Read on to find out more. But before you go, acquaint yourself with the (not always obvious) onsen etiquette.
