    Hell Valley

    May 15, 2016 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    I originally planned this day for tomorrow, the last day of my stay in Sapporo but weather conditions made me change my plans. The town of Noboribetsu onsen is said to be one of the best onsen towns in Hokkaido so naturally i had to give it a try. Not only does this town have a lot of different hotsprings with various water compositions (ie. sulfurous, rich in mineral, calcious) but it's also famous for its gorgeous and easily reachable geothermal source for all it's spring waters. Once you get of the bus you are immediatly greeted by a gorgeous sulfurous smell. Did i say gorgeous? I meant awful. :-P The walk to the geothermal site was a short and easy one and it's a spectacular site. In the middle of a green gorge there is a barren and rocky area where nothing grows. Colums of steam and small strangely coloured streams complete the picture. I just stood there for a while and looked in awe. The pictures on this post don't do it justice. It's truly mesmerizing. From the vantage point there were several tracks to lead you around the area for more wonderful sites and attractions. One of which is a small stream which looks like any mountain stream with cold water, only this is nearly 50 degrees celcius. Perfect for making a footbath the locals must have thought. And boy it is! Just take of your socks and shoes and soak your tired feet in the creek. Delightful! I got to talk with a nice family from Taiwan who were there with their parents and kids. It was really fun and they wanted to take a picture with them and me. :-D.
    Once back in the onsen town i went to the Daiichi-Takomotokan onsen resort. By far the biggest one in Noboribetsu-onsen. With 7 different baths boasting different water compositions and temperatures and hence various health benefits. It was a great experience. It even had an outside bath with view over Jigukodani (Hell Valley). Unfortunately no pictures of the onsen for obvious reasons but trust me if i tell you it was brilliant. I can't tell you much about the ride back since i slept practically all the way. The evening in the hostel was spent with a wonderful couple from Sweden/Norway and a Canadian while trying to watch my soccer team progress to the next round for European football. Just a perfect day!

    Objectif Ryokan : Noboribetsu

    March 27, 2019 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

    A bord de notre super Hokuto (de cuisine), nous longeons la mer en direction de Sapporo. Avant ça, nous faisons un arrêt à Noboribetsu Onsen et son unique rue parcourue de statue de pierres et d'étranges personnages. Mais qu'allons nous faire la-bas Odile ?Read more

    Noboribetsu II

    September 10, 2020 in Japan ⋅ 🌧 20 °C

    The next day, I went to Jigokudani located in a very nice hot spring town. I ate some crab miso ramen before walking towards Jigokudani. It was raining heavily but it fortunately subsided and I was able to get a nice view of the natural hot sulfur pools and geysers around the area. I took numerous hiking trails to circle the place, being one with nature and all despite my very sore legs, I pushed through going up some hills and I was able to see even larger sulfur pools and hot springs. A bit further, there was a nice natural foot bath, I put my feet in the hot flowing river and I must say, it really helped with the fatigue. I lazed about here for quite sometime before heading further upstream. The rocks here were very interesting, the colors were vivid from red and blue and green marbles, probably from the mineral-rich water flowing. The town also had a lot of oni statues, I am guessing it goes with the Hell`s Valley nickname, as in Jigokudani. I walked around some more and considered going to the bear zoo but opted not to cuz I the bears there looked like they were being mistreated. I met the same familiar face all the way from Asahidake at the bus station going back to my hotel.

    I arrived and walked to the beach one last time to enjoy my last day in Hokkaido, got some snacks to reward myself for a good spontaneous trip and went to bed completely satisfied.
