Asahidake Onsen

A Gift from Nature and Gods - Hot Spring in the Land of Wonder

Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

Nestled in Mt. Asahidake in the Taisetsuzan Ridges, a resort stands on a plateau at 1100m (3609 ft) above sea level. Mt. Taisetsuzan was called as Kamuimintara - the garden where gods played - in the Ainu language.

Spring and summer are short on Asahidake. Plants race to sprout and blossom. In fall, it’s as if gods dressed the mountains with silk kimono. Then, the long winter comes when the diamond dust glitters in the sky.

Asahidake Onsen is gifted with the hot water springing from a virgin forest. Relish the choice hot spring in the land of natural wonder.
