We've seen the light! Literally. If like us you've had a brief sighting of the sun and its left you wanting to take your clothes off (its been a long winter) - a Japanese onsen could be the answer.
The Noboribetsu Onsen on Jigokudani (Hell Valley) in Hokkaido Japan, is symbolic of the colossal energy of Japanese ancient times.One of Japan's premier hot spring villages it offers ten different varieties of water and produces 10,000 tons of fresh water per day.
The Bourou onsen offers a new style of hot springs travel from hospitality to dining, all in an ultra stylish Japanese-Modern architectural space. Here you won't find the hordes of karaoke singing tourists - this is a space for quiet retreat, a refined interior, and sophisticated silence.
The hotel features spacious suites complete with their own onsen baths overlooking serene landscapes, organic toiletries in every room, a 24 hour spa and a "bedrock bath" where couples can lay beside each other and sweat to their heart's content.
The restaurant features fresh food direct from a local farm and fish market plus there's a bar and library for those tired of looking out the window.
