Onsen Tengoku

Top choice Onsen

in Noboribetsu Onsen

The bathhouse attached to the Dai-ichi Takimoto-kan hotel deserves singling out because it is truly spectacular, an 'onsen heaven' (tengoku means 'heaven'). The sprawling complex, awash in pastel tiles, fountains and mirrors, has more variety than any others here, with seven different springs (all purportedly good for something) and several outdoor baths.
