Niseko is blessed with a rich bounty of natural hot spring water which is as almost as much of a drawcard as the snow. Being able to soak your tired muscles and body in a 40C+ Niseko onsen (hot spring) after a long, cold day skiing is one of the most amazing things about Niseko.
Submerged to the neck, gazing across a dreamlike snow-covered landscape through a veil of steam, is a truly unique Niseko experience. The total mind and body relaxation experienced in the hours after leaving an onsen is perhaps the only thing that can beat it.
