Not easy to get to but if you manage, it would be worth the trip. Other have shared much on how to do this so do your research well. Pro #1 - very Japanese. Well used but it's really the locals bath. Very very few foreigner tourists. Pro #2 - bath water does not smell unlike the ones visited in... More

Visited this onsen in February 2017, and I must say that this was one of the best onsens I visited during my trip in Japan! Very traditional, very rustic, great authentic feel. Front desk was friendly and helpful with acceptable command of English (not broken), and they give you helpful tips and advise. Here's some pointers I would like to... More

You will so fall in love with this onsen, it was so beautiful during winter! Glad that we chose this onsen using the Jozankei onsen package ticket, instead of other newer but commercialized onsen resorts . If you are looking for authentic onsen experience, do go with this a bit old facility which was mostly frequented by locals. Be prepared,... More

This onsen experience was awesome! Sitting outside and being able to look about at the snow covered landscape is really peaceful. It even flurried a teeny bit while I was outside but you don't feel cold at all. It's actually quite refreshing to enjoy the cool outdoor air and hot bath at the same time. There are 3 indoor baths... More

I would like to highlight my experience dining at this Onsen Shokudo (dinning hall) recently on 26 Dec 2016, 12 noon. This is what happened:- 1. I entered their onsen dinning hall while my husband and son were parking the car. There were 2 males, who were wearing long sleeve shirts, standing infront of the cashier counter. There were no...

Thanks to all of the TA reviewers. Your comments were spot on. Made it easy to get there and an easy decision to go. A blustery autumn day was a perfect time to spend a few hours in an onsen, especially in the outdoor pools with the autumn foliage changing. The only thing I would do differently is lunch. I...

The experience: Authentic Japanese Onsen with all that entails. No swimming suits allowed, men and women segregated, indoor and outdoor pools, wonderful water, beautiful setting. A great experience. The facility was a bit old and shabby, but not excessively so. It was busy but not crowded. We were the only non-Japanese there when we visited. Here's how to get there:... More

There's essentially only 2 pools in this traditional onsen but it's main attraction is the rotemburo which has great views of the surrounding hills... The onsen restaurant is supposedly famous for its Indian cuisine (yeah, it's a bit strange to have Indian food in an onsen in a rural suburb of Sapporo) as well though I'm not a fan of... More

This onsen have it's charm for sure, but unless you're into traditional old school local onsen, best you have your onsen experience somewhere else. It's just 2 baths indoors and a beautiful scenic outdoor. If you wish for something more to experience besides bathing and paid massages, look elsewhere.
