Immerse yourselves in a mineral-rich ‘onsen’ (hot spring bath) at Zaborin, Hokkaido

Japan’s Ryokan Collection offers new cultural experiences

In Travel News by The H4C Team

Prepare to update your Japan itinerary with The Ryokan Collection’s incredible selection of cultural adventures and authentic local experiences. Paired with their portfolio of 32 luxury <ryokans> (traditional family-run inns) and small luxury hotels, the company has negotiated a range of options based on Japanese traditions. While a rare opportunity to dine with geisha in Kyoto or meditate at the ancient Soto Zen Temple both sound enticing, we’ve pencilled in a soak in one of Hokkaido’s top private hot springs: Zaborin. Each villa at this scenic escape enjoys its own indoor and outdoor hot spring bath (onsen) with the highly prized, mineral-rich water flowing directly from Zaborin’s own spring — at perfect bathing temperature! The surrounding landscape is utterly beguiling and for ski bunnies, the powder of Niseko is just minutes away.
