Taxi is prohibitively expensive.

Niseko and Noboribetsu onsen are quite far apart, separated by woods, mountains, and valleys. Probably taking the JR train is the most straightforward, although it would take about 3hr 30 min.

The train runs along a nice countryside and won't be just a waste of time.

Niseko (or Kutchan) - Oshamanbe - Noboribetsu

Usually it would be a local train from Kutchan to Oshamanbe, and from Oshamanbe, a (Super) Hokuto train to Noboribetsu. If you take the local train from Oshamanbe to Noboribetsu, it will take you plus 30 min.

The price will be 4,760 yen (if you take Hokuto, reserved seat); 3,150 yen (all local without taking ltd exp) per person, single trip.

You might make a short stop-over at Toya or Date Monbetsu to get on a bus to see Lake Toya or Showa Shinzan volcano.

Muroran is an industrial port town with little to see but known for its Muroran Yakitori (use pork meat instead of chicken for skewers).

Noboribetsu Onsen town is a bit away from Noboribetsu station. You need a bus or a hotel shuttle.

Shraoi, about five stations from Noboribetsu, has an interesting Ainu Ethinic village.
