What you'll do

It takes about 1 hour to go to Jozankei from Sapporo central by bus, and Jozankei is located in Minami-ku where I was born and raised. It is one of the three biggest hot springs in Hokkaido, and is a nature rich tourist destination surrounded by mountains. Hokkaido is 150th anniversary of naming in 2018, and the history of Jozankei has 152 years from the beginning. In fact, it is older than the history of Hokkaido. Let's walk around the historic town and explore nature! I’ll show you what I learned from the local people and secret information of Jozankei. If you have time after my tour, I’ll show you my recommended hot springs!
Other things to note
In the case of bad weather there is a possibility of discontinuation. In that case I will contact you in advance.

Hello, I'm Shintaro! I was born and raised in Sapporo. I studied about hot springs and stress when I was a university student. During my research, I visited Jozankei, one of the three biggest hot springs in Hokkaido, and I met my boss who taught me how great Jozankei is and I was fascinated. Then, I became a nature guide assistant for a year. I want to show you how much I love this area! Let’s experience Hokkaido’s great nature in Jozankei! Also, I want to become friends with everyone in the world. I'm looking forward to meet you someday!

A whift of fresh air started our journey through the white landscape of Jozankei. It's the first time for us to come across such soft and fluffy snow. Mr Shintaro introduced us to the natural beauty of Jozankei and his detailed explanation helped us see Jozankei from many different angles. The hot tea and snacks provided brought a wonderful end to our journey. Truly an enjoyable experience despite being part of our last minute plan. Highly recommended.
