Hokkaido is a beautiful travel destination as much for its breathtaking scenery as for the delicious local cuisine. When in Hokkaido, you should definitely stop by one of the best onsen areas of the region. There are 9 types of hot springs in Noboribetsu, each having unique properties. For example, there are sulfur springs, which are known to help for chronic bronchitis, hardening of the arteries and chronic dermatitis; there is also an iron spring which is known to help for anemia and chronic eczema.
In the area, you can visit a historical park, a bear park, a marine park, etc.
It is a stunning place to visit in spring with the cherry blossoms.

Yufuin Onsen 湯布院温泉 (Kyushu)

Yufuin is both the name of a city and of an onsen resort. Yufuin is known for its cafes, stores and art museums. It's a beautiful area to take a walk around in for the day.
Yufuin is a gorgeous area surrounded by mountains. The view is particularly beautiful because of Mount Yufu's twin peaks.
Yufuin is located close to a much larger and busier onsen area called Beppu. So if you're looking for a beautiful onsen resort area that is slightly less touristic, you should try Yufuin!

Kusatsu Onsen 草津温泉 (Gunma)

Kusatsu Onsen is possibly one of Japan's most famous onsen regions. Hot spring water is renown among the Japanese for its many health benefits.
Since this region is located in the mountains, it is also famous for skiing in winter, and for hiking during the other seasons. Kusatsu is well-known for the quality of its hot spring water, and since they have large quantities of it, they are able to provide water for other regions as well.
This region is also famous for hiking and skiing!
