The YUMOTO ONSEN PRINCE HOTEL is conveniently located in Upper Hirafu, not far from the main ski slopes.  Now that all the main ski areas of Niseko are linked vis a vis the top of Mount Annupuri, accessing the better onsens of Niseko is simpler.  Whether arriving by car, bus or simply skiing down Hirafu’s ski runs all guests can try the Yumoto Onsen.  Perfect to try after a day spent on the hills and before dinner this Onsen has several advantages over others.

YUMOTO ONSEN PRINCE HOTEL has both an indoor and outdoor bathing facility.  Absolutely no tap water is added to it making this hot spring 100% natural.  Carbon dioxide gas in the water is said to improve the blood circulation helping to relieve muscle pain and mental stress.  The indoor facility features several pools of varying temperatures whilst the highlight of the outdoor facility is a unique onsen overlooking the active ski hills.   A word of caution for modest bathers as taller guests should think twice before standing in the upper slope outdoor facility as the outer wall obscuring view into the Onsen is quite low.
