Beginner’s Course Resort Ride
Cruise through the popular Niseko area!
Blessed with natural beauty, this area is known as a skiing mecca, but in recent years they’ve added more summer activities to make this a great year-round resort. It’s also rich in local flavors and onsen!
This course has been repeatedly chosen as a stage for Japan’s famed “Tour de Hokkaido” race. It follows a circuit around high Mt. Yotei, called “Yezo Fuji,” and is perfect for families and groups of friends. Also, nearby you can find Kamuy Wakka and Fukidashi park, as well as delicious spring water sources and day-trip onsen facilities. The rural landscape spreading out around the foot of the striking Mt. Yotei offers a full taste of the true Hokkaido.

A Tour of Niseko Onsens – the famous and the little-known
The foothills of Niseko are dotted with onsen offering a variety of water types. Most onsen facilities offer day-trip plans, and the “Niseko Spring Tour Pass,” offering access to every facility, is available at Michi-no-Eki, and elsewhere.
1.Niseko Annupuri Onsen
The richness of the natural spring waters will reach your very core. Watch the natural hot spring water flowing like a waterfall into the large natural stone outdoor bath.
2. Niseko Goshiki Onsen
This onsen area is in a valley 750m above sea level. The draw here is the 100% natural, sulfur-rich water that can be 1 of 5 different colors, depending on the day. This onsen is famed for the view of the mountain range and alpine vegetation from their outdoor bath.
3.Niseko Kombu Onsen
This onsen area is fun all year round, with golf, tennis, hiking and rafting in summer, and skiing and snowboarding in winter. You can feel all four seasons from the outdoor bath.
