Yumoto Niseko Prince Hotel Hirafutei is located in the middle of Hirafuzaka, the main street of Niseko Hirafu, and it houses Niseko hot springs that are touted for their fantastic healing properties.

From muscle aches to fatigue, aching joints, nerve pain, and even chronic skin diseases, the hotel uses pure and unadulterated spring waters from a private source and keeps them at a suitable temperature using a special system, ensuring that guests can get the full benefits they have to offer.

Bubbling with carbon dioxide, the clear and colorless spring water here promotes blood circulation and warms up a body cold from winter chills quite nicely. Oh, and did we mention the view from the outdoor hot springs are just terrific?

3. Niseko Konbu Onsen Hotel Kanronnomori: Outdoor baths that blend in with Niseko's forests

Hotel Kanronnomori features a distinctly Japanese-modern design that is enhanced by the beautiful forests of Niseko it finds itself in.

Onsen enthusiasts know the hotel's hot springs as "beauty baths" as they are packed with metasilicic acid, a compound that moisturizes the skin, leaving it fresh and supple at the end of a dip. The soft scent of sulfur peculiar to natural hot springs that lingers around the area adds to the relaxation.

Niseko Konbu Onsen Hotel Kanronnomori's Forest Sky Outdoor Hot Spring is a carefully crafted experience designed to make guests feel as if they were floating in the middle of the forest during their soak, thus allowing them to fully enjoy the natural sights in the area with all their senses.

We recommend getting the Onsen Lunch Package that comes with lunch and day usage of the hot spring baths for those who will be visiting on a day trip.

The water used in the baths here contains sodium and magnesium, both elements that are helpful for soothing muscle soreness and alleviating fatigue. If that's what you're feeling after a vigorous session of skiing and snowboarding, definitely consider coming here for a nice, warm soak!

There's also a women-only outdoor bath for ladies who prefer that instead. No matter what you pick, rest assured that both outdoor bath zones are equally enjoyable!

The source of the waters used in these Niseko onsen hot springs here is quite special as well, featuring two elements known to reinvigorate the skin, earning them the moniker of "anti-aging baths".

8. Goshiki Onsen And Hotel: Little-known bath spot surrounded by the mountains of Niseko

8. Goshiki Onsen And Hotel: Little-known bath spot surrounded by the mountains of Niseko

The word "goshiki" means "five colors." This name originated because the baths in this hotel change between five different colors day-by-day as the waters mix together with the sulfur in them.

Sulfur isn't the only thing present in the baths - the unadulterated spring water used here also contains magnesium, sodium, calcium, nitrate, chloride, and various natural minerals. The sulfur content gives the clear baths a moisturizing effect.

Because the evaporation residue here is much higher than other hot springs, many visitors to this onsen spot come in search of potential beneficial effects on conditions such as chronic eczema, nerve pain, and atopy.

The resort's large bath area is indoors, though there is also an open outdoor bath called the Karamatsu no Yu where visitors can take in the beautiful sights of Mount Niseko-Annupuri or Iwaonupuri during their soak. Both overnight guests and day visitors are welcome here!
