Japanese Hot Springs

 
Japanese Hot Springs The Japanese do a wonderful job of taking a glass-half-full approach to all the geological activity that their archipelago, with its location on the morbidly named Pacific Ring of Fire, is subject to. Rather than dwell on a history of debilitating earthquakes, or the possibility of cataclysmic volcanic eruptions, they just take off all their clothes and let their cares evaporate in the steam of a Japanese hot spring. Known as onsen, these hot springs in Japan can be found in almost every corner of the country, and constitute some of the best sightseeing in Japan. All puns aside, onsen are a great way to relax after climbing Mount Fuji, or at the end of a hectic week of business meetings. A result of the massive qu...

Niseko

 
Niseko Niseko has been discovered as the powder snow capital of Japan with the ever growing number of Australian and other foreign tourists. This boom has been blown out of proportion by the local press-the vast majority of tourists are still Japanese.

The snow is what brings people - the quality and quantity(over 15 m in a good season!) is fast becoming world renown. Not only Australians but many expats living in SE Asia have discovered the delights of the Niseko area-the snow,people,hotsprings, food and culture all combine to create a unique ski holiday experience.

Hakodate was also the capital of the short-lived Republic of Ezo in the aftermath of the Meiji Restoration.
