Spring is almost there in Japan, but you can still see plenty of snow around Hakkoda! How about lunch break at Hakkoda Sanso after hitting the slope? www.hakkoda-sanso.com

Sometimes locals need to be reminded of onsen etiquette as well! These manga-inspired posters at Sukayu Onsen are no doubt of great help to all who come here! Wash yourself thoroughly before entering the tub and keep your swimmers out! The list goes on so be sure to familiarise yourself with these rules. :) FYI, tatoos are taboo in the hot spring scene but here at Sukayu, they offer stickers for you to conceal them tats so you can feel free to enjoy a genuine Japanese hot bath experience. http://www.en-aomori.com/hotspring-008.html
