Do it. It's expensive. Like $80-a-person expensive. But if you are staying in the hotel and you go there after dinner, you can usually negotiate two days worth of onsen for the one ticket. Try that out. And enjoy your break.

"Shisai no Yu" is located inside the New Furano Prince Hotel, which is really combined for the guests. It is a not entirely natural hot spring as the water is pumped up from more than 1km down into the bowels of the earth and apparently the original temperature of the water is only 26.6 degrees centigrade! Therefore, for all the sophisticated natural onsen (hot spring) goers, it would certainly not meet their expectations. The locals would not go there. Our Japanese ski instructor sort of sniggered when we thought he was going to the onsen at the hotel (hahaha). However for the guests who ski all day, it provides an adequate hot bath for relaxation, particularly when its entry fee is included in your hotel room rate.

The facilities were adequate. There was a large indoor bath with spa jets at one end, a small hot outdoor bath, an outdoor cold water bath and a sauna. The temperature of the hot bath was 41-42 degrees centigrade and cold bath was about 14-18 degrees. There were plenty of signs in English, Chinese and Korean explaining the onsen etiquette, if only people would all observe it... lol

It (the onsen) opens 6am-9am in the morning and 6pm-12 midnight. To avoid the crowd, go early in the morning or late at night- those would be the best times to go. It would be unlucky if you happened to meet some Chinese group who would talk loudly in the onsen, or unobserving westerners who would step into the bath without showering first or having long hair dipping into the bath. Not sure if the Hotel could be more persistent with the etiquette or if the guests could be more considerate to make it a more enjoyable place.

Very well setup. Even the walk into this sanctuary is zen-like. Pure relaxation with therapeutic services available for booking after 3pm. Go early in the morning to avoid crowds. Outside onsen is bliss especially with flurry snow flakes falling. Showers also available with the sit-down traditional wash cubicles.
