This winter you can visit the unique Hokkaido hot spring resort of Tokachigawa Onsen with ease all the way from Sapporo, simply by booking on JAPANiCAN.com!
Tokachigawa Onsen is known for its rare type of hot spring which flows up through a marsh rich in organic material. These enriching particles are carried along in the springs and are said to have beautifying properties and a moisturizing effect on the skin.
Now, two Tokachigawa Onsen hotels are giving JAPANiCAN.com customers the chance to come and experience this naturally beautiful area with ease by offering seats on a shuttle bus all the way from Sapporo, the typical entrance to Hokkaido. The special plan is available for guests staying 2 consecutive nights with check-in on Tuesday or Sunday, from Jan. 22 to Mar. 27.
Simply book a "Japanese-style Room with Free Bus from Sapporo (2-night Plan)" room at one of the hotels linked below. After booking, contact Customer Support at least 7 business days before check-in with your booking confirmation number to reserve the included bus. The bus will depart from the Sapporo Station North Exit bus terminal at 12:00 p.m. (noon). Please check-in for the bus by 11:40 a.m. The bus will arrive at the hotel at about 3:30 p.m. At the conclusion of your stay, the bus returning to Sapporo will depart the hotel at 10:00 a.m. and arrive at Sapporo Station at around 2:00 p.m. There are even other free gifts also included!
The Sairinka winter festival event will be held in Tokachigawa Onsen, Hokkaido from Jan. 26 - Feb. 21. The website is only up to date in Japanese, but check it out if you're headed up north this winter!
Besides the pretty lights pictured here -- which are people-size, by the way -- the event features attractions like snow rafting, frozen bubble-blowing, an "ice promenade" and more! Don't miss it!
