When we travelled from Tokyo to Hokkaido, we went by our own car. At that time, there was no tunnel from Honshu (the main island) to Hokkaido, so we had to use a ferry that boarded cars. Our hot spring experience in Noboribetsu Onsen (hot springs) was one of the best hot spring I've experienced in Japan or anywhere for that matter. I remember the huge bathing area that was on two levels with all kinds of baths available.

All hotels there facilitate indoor or even outdoor onsen. A small town but good for relax and hot spring. Public bus available for JR station.

Oni themed onsen area. With amazingly beautiful scenery of the hot water coming out of the sulfuric ground. Sadly roads were blocked due to the snow but it was saved by a small walk to a foot spa area up the road.

Wonderful onsen experience in the land of hot springs. Walking along the unique landscape of thermal springs in the chilling winter is an unforgettable experience. Many trails were unfortunately closed in winter.
