Went there on the bus from Sapporo station as recommended by others in this review section. Would recommend taking the early bus, say around 9 or 10am, coz it got very very crowded with locals when we left at 1pm. Read up before going in, as in there are bathing rules and what can and cannot be done. I did... More

My partner and I really enjoyed our time at this Onsen. After keeping up a cracking pace on our three week holiday in Japan we did this right at the end. It was a great way to complete our trip and to unwind. They have the best Indian restaurant there so make sure u go ready to enjoy a meal.... More

How great is to enjoy a hot spring bath surrounded by snow caped mountains, naked trees, next to an old waterwheel... You are part of nature, one more. Birds sing just before the sun sets and make a great duet with the chants of water; Further, steam goes up and mixes with the clowds... When you leave the bath you... More

Take the bus no7 from the bus terminal near JR station. If you intend to join the bath, you should buy the ticket that include round trip bus and bath at 1800 ¥ Take easy sitting on this ordinary bus about 1 hour to Jozenkai, and get off at the last stop at Hoheikyo Onsen. This authentic bathhouse is just... More

Let me say that this is, hands down best Onsen near Sapporo. Take the number seven bus from platform 12 in the bus station at Sapporo central station. A ticket counter that is literally 4 feet from the bus stop will sell you the tickets. Get the package for 1,800 jpy (at time of writing feb2016) the bus runs every... More

Went with a group of Sapporo friends by car to this amazing place, they serve real indian curry which is pretty unusual at an onsen, but the real attractions are the baths. Indoor pool is wonderfully eroded sandstone, outdoor rotenburo is huge holding up to 200 people. A big stone slab is ideal for your ice-cold Sapporo beer (from the... More

Chosen the Hoheikyo Onsen for it's beautiful nature surroundings and it's interior. Natural and beautiful! And of course for it's famous naan which highly recommended by many reviewers. Our hotel staff in Sapporo suggested and help us to make reservation for return bus tickets. And they also commented that it's a very nice onsen! We took bus no. 7 at... More

I loved this place. People make comment to it being old and run down, but I think this is all part of the character. It feels local. Not commercial and fancy like some of the others. My partner and I paid 1000yen each for the entrance fee. If you have never been before, basically you walk in, take your shoes... More

Wanted to try a good local onsen and had spent the longest time researching for a suitable onsen that I can bring my 2 children age 6 and 8, girl and boy with us to the onsen to experience the Japanese culture. I was worried that they will be too restless and disturb other guest. We almost decided to go... More
