Where to stay in Noboribetsu

The majority of places to stay in Noboribetsu lie inland, to the north of the main train station. Close to the hot springs and the volcanic valley, accommodations lie on all the streets across the modest urban area of the resort town. Many people see staying in traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses) as part of the experience, but some more modern hotels can be found across town, too. Visitors primarily look to find an option with onsite "onsen" (traditional Japanese hot spring spas), although you can always arrange a visit to one if not.

  • Nice free soak with seating pad provided. Get close to the tiny waterfall for warmer water.try to locate this fragrant large orchids-like flower on trees near entrance.big lake nearby very majestic and has a parking lot so you don't need to hike the 1.3km.parking package 500yen (for all parking within trail area)
  • Very nice here. Well worth the hike to this destination from your hotel. Bring a small towel to dry your feet off after you're done.
  • Visited April 2017 Bring a towel to wipe your feet afterwards. There are some small pads left available at the site that you can sit on. From Hell Valley it's quite a walk and treacherous if there is snow on the path. It is possible to take a vehicle to the entrance or walk along the road to it.
  • If you plan to come to this part of Noboribetsu, and you take the track around Hell Valley and Oyunama Pond, then I advise you prepare before hand and bring a towel, and maybe some flip flops, so that you can soak your feet into this naturally heated food pond. It's so relaxing.
  • My 1st Self-drive (F&E) tour. My 1st visit to Japan. Visited River Oyunuma Natural Footbath in May 2016. You have to walk a distance in order to get to the River Oyunuma Natural Footbath. Please be careful when you going down to the River Oyunuma Natural Footbath as the rock are very slippery. Do remember to bring a small towel when you visit the place as you need to dry your foot after your soak your foot in the River Oyunuma Natural Footbath.
