Heat's On in Niseko

Niseko

Amid Niseko’s famous blankets of snow and rich green terrains lie Onsens (温泉)—traditional Japanese nude, gender-separated, communal spring water baths—ready to heal the body, mind, and soul. Get in-tune with nature as you dip into a “rotenburo” (露天風呂, Japanese for "Outdoor Onsen") and gaze at the magnificent vistas of the town. Sourced naturally and rich in minerals, spring waters leave you clean, relaxed, and refreshed. Sink into the warm bath, and reap various health benefits at the same time, such as relief from skin conditions and lowered blood pressure. Remember to observe proper Onsen etiquette before you immerse yourself in this wonderful Japanese custom!

The Vale Niseko Onsen

ザヴェールニセコ温泉

Recommendation posted 29 May 2018

Follow the aromatic scent of sandalwood, cedar, and lavender essential oils towards The Vale Niseko Onsen. Designed by famous Japanese Onsen designer Suzuki San, the minimalist yet modern layout exudes elegant opulence. Known as a “Kakenagashi” (かけながし) Onsen, The Vale Niseko Onsen’s thermal spring water flows from 700 meters below ground and undergoes zero filtration. It takes 160 years to filter down from Mount Yotei, collecting minerals along the way before it rejuvenates bathers with its promised natural benefits—including the healing of cuts and bruises, and the alleviation of chronic constipation and arteriosclerosis.
