Seemed this place is famous for onsen and the trip is well worth it, if only to experience the myriads of onsen there. The hotel we booked has huge onsen overlooking the river behind it. It being close to spring, the snow starts thawing and sky, crystal clear. We get the snow, minus the extreme cold. Wearing yukata makes the... More

Hokkaido Jozankei like Sapporo's garden,we set off from Sapporo just cost you around an hour bus way. And Jozankei Onsen is a shrine for hot springs. It may be so remote for traveler.But don’t worry, there is some special bus for tourists there. I heard that we can see the famous and attractive maple near Toyohira Gorge Reservoir. But it... More

Jozankei is very easy to get to. We we're delighted to get there. We wished we can stay there overnight. We went to an onzen which has both indoor and outdoor. It was a delight. I particularly like the outdoor one as you see the falling snow and enjoy the warmth of onsen. Feeling pretty relax afterwards. The town is... More

I stayed at Jozankei Suizantei Club, the most expensive and fanciest hotel in this area. I stayed here with my wife just for one night, and took the hotel's shuttle bus from Sapporo Odori. It took one hour to the hotel. The views of the mountains covered with snow were beautiful. The room was spacious for two of us, and... More

It's possible to go from the Sapporo center to this spa in about 30 minutes by car. A lot of carp streamers are displayed on the river at the beginning of May from the end of April every year. It would be better to go to you to see that.

Very near to Sapporo, so we drove 40 minutes to Jozankei for a day trip. The area was covered with heavy snow when we got here so it was picture perfect with plenty of snow to play with. It's a lovely small town. There is also a free foot onsen nearby. Would definitely come back here again.
