This is a great way to experience the geological phenomena behind the hot springs the naturally feed the onsens of Noboribetsu. Add it on to the end of a hike for the ultimate refresher for your feet!

It is a nice place to relax and enjoy the natural hot water. It is within 5 min drive from the Hell Valley. So it is very convenient place to visit after visiting the Hell Valley. Car park is available.

A short walk from Oku-no-yu, pass Oyunuma. Pleasant place to soak feet after hiking various pathways. There are wooden planks to sit on while soaking your feet. Able to accommodate big groups. Saw at least 15 fellow foot bathers while I was there.

It's closed until further notice due to recent eruption... didn't get to enjoy the foot bath but witnessed the breathtaking display of hot steam vents.

It will be very far from Noboribetsu station to River Oyunuma Natural Footbath (around 8-10km away). It will be great to drive there.
