This is one of the best Japanese baths, where from the rotenburo (outdoor bath) overlooking Mt. Yotei, you can really feel the beautiful vast nature of Hokkaido. The indoor bathing area with its classy, modern and spacious interior provides a luxurious mood.
The Hilton Niseko Village (Niseko Higashiyama) Hotel is located right at the bottom of Mount Annupuri - an entrance to the world of nature.
The rotenburo (outdoor bath) is definitely one of the best I have ever experienced. The breathtaking view of Mt. yotei surrounded by forest and nature is a rare sight to behold. The bath is also enclosed by a small pond containing large carp fish that swim up to to the edge of the bath you can almost touch them, a unique feature and the only one of its kind at any of the Japanese baths near Sapporo Japan or even Hokkaido for that matter.
This resort hotel offers plenty of fun all year round with skiing in the winter, and tennis, golf, horseback-riding during the summer season.
