There are so many things that make a winter holiday at a Japanese ski resort special and undoubtedly one of our favourites is relaxing in an onsen (hot spring bath) after a day on the mountain. Indulging in a long soak in an onsen is an integral part of Japanese culture and many would say an almost spiritual experience.

There are so many things that make a winter holiday at a Japanese ski resort special and undoubtedly one of our favourites is relaxing in an onsen (hot spring bath) after a day on the mountain. Indulging in a long soak in an onsen is an integral part of Japanese culture and many would say an almost spiritual experience. Niseko is blessed with a fabulous array of onsens and this issue we take a look at the area’s best, along with an overview of the history of onsens and a personal account of a first onsen experience. We received some great feedback on our pictures from issue 4 and thanks to the talented local photographers we have another Thousand Words, double-page pictorial spread. We hope you enjoy this edition – please keep the pictures and feedback coming! Bevan@Powderlife.com
