Niseko Prince Hotel Hirafutei is located halfway up the Hirafu Hill, which is also the main street of Niseko Hirafu. The Niseko onsen hot springs are not only good for relaxing sore muscles and easing fatigue but are also said to be effective in treating arthralgia, neuralgia, and chronic skin diseases.

To maintain the superior efficacy of the hot spring gushing up directly from the source, outside water is not added. Instead, an original system to adjust the temperature to the proper level is used.

The transparent water of the hot spring is said to promote blood circulation because it contains an abundance of natural carbon dioxide gas. This hot spring will leave you feeling warm and relaxed after a day of enjoying sports and other winter activities in Niseko. The view from the outdoor baths is also magnificent. From the men’s bath, you can see Niseko Annupuri, and from the women’s bath, you can see Mt. Yotei.

2. Hilton Niseko Village: Relaxing in this first-class hotel’s outdoor bath makes you feel like a celebrity!

You can also enjoy a day-trip visit to the hot bath at the world-class Hilton Niseko Village. Soaking in the hot spring that is continuously fed from its own source will quickly relieve fatigue and invigorate you. It will relax sore muscles after a day of skiing powder snow.

Enjoying the view of Mt. Yotei and the surrounding natural scenery from the luxury of the outdoor Niseko onsen hot spring gives a feeling of liberation. That, combined with the luxury of the Hilton Hotel, will undoubtedly make you feel like a celebrity.

3. Hotel Kanronomori: Feel one with nature while relaxing in the outdoor bath!

Surrounded by the Niseko Forest, the Hotel Kanronomori has a uniquely modern Japanese atmosphere. The abundance of metasilicic acid in the water, said to make every inch of the skin feel fresh, also leads to this hot spring commonly being called "the beauty's hot spring." Having a faint aroma of sulfur, the bath is very relaxing.

As though floating in the middle of the forest, the Mori no Tenku Rotenburo [Forest Outdoor Bath under the Sky] enables you to feel the richness of nature throughout your whole body. We recommend the Onsen Lunch Pack, which is a day-trip hot spring visit that also includes lunch.

4. Yugokorotei: Frequented by locals and tourists alike!

4. Yugokorotei: Frequented by locals and tourists alike!

No water is added, nor is the bath reheated as Yugokorotei uses only 100% free-flowing Niseko onsen hot spring water untreated by chlorine - nor is the water recirculated. It is for that reason that it is loved by both the locals and foreign visitors. The spring water is rich in sodium, which is good for relieving fatigue, sore muscles, bruises, sprains, and cuts.

Enjoy a sense of other-worldliness in the outdoor rock bath enveloped in a silvery winter wonderland. You are welcome to bring children, too, as there are baby beds and baby chairs for the bath as well as a kids' space in the resting room. After bathing, you can also use the massage chair free of charge.

Hotel Niseko Alpen is popular because you can easily go straight to its hot spring after enjoying the extreme powder on the main slope of Niseko. The hot spring contains sodium and magnesium, which are said to be useful for recovering from fatigue and muscle pain, so it is the perfect place to go to relax after skiing and snowboarding.

Relax in the soothing waters of the outdoor hot spring while enjoying the natural beauty of the surrounding trees. You can also go for a stroll along the streets of Hirafu after a relaxing soak in this Niseko onsen hot spring.

6. The Niseko Grand Hotel: Famous for its mineral-rich, mixed-bathing outdoor bath

The Niseko Grand Hotel has the only mixed-bathing outdoor hot spring in the area, so it is popular with families and friends who wish to bathe together. Women can also enter the hot spring without worry because it is possible to borrow Yuyukata, a unique garment to wear in the hot spring. There is also an outdoor hot spring just for women.

The main feature of the hot spring is the two different types of minerals it contains, both of which are said to be good for beautiful skin, giving the hot spring the reputation of being rejuvenating. This Niseko onsen hot spring naturally contains an abundance of metasilicic acid, which moisturizes the skin.
