It appeared the place was renovated so there are mats for people to sit on while submerging their feet to the running warm stream from the mountain. Very nice after walking through the different trails in the national park. I saw people walk around in...More

It is a nice place to relax and enjoy the natural hot water. It is within 5 min drive from the Hell Valley. So it is very convenient place to visit after visiting the Hell Valley. Car park is available.

A short walk from Oku-no-yu, pass Oyunuma. Pleasant place to soak feet after hiking various pathways. There are wooden planks to sit on while soaking your feet. Able to accommodate big groups. Saw at least 15 fellow foot bathers while I was there.

It's closed until further notice due to recent eruption... didn't get to enjoy the foot bath but witnessed the breathtaking display of hot steam vents.

冬天來到, 很漂亮。從地獄谷走來大約半小時。坐下來,浸浸腳,欣賞美麗的雪景。謝謝大自然創造這麼漂亮的溫泉河流。 Only half an hour walk from Jigokudani, you will discover this beautiful foot onsen.

We parked nearby and easily located the foot spa along a trail. We decided to hike a bit further to the TOP which led us to the road, and another crater with a big lake. It was a nice picture opportunity, especially when the sun...More

It's a nice hike in the winter, still accessible in snow, and very pretty. When I went the water was just over ankle height so it really is only a footbath, but welcome nonetheless. There are foam sitting pads so you can negotiate taking your...More

This attraction is more suitable during other seasons than winter... we were freezing cold when we came to this attraction (it was snowing then)... but then the warmth when you soaked the feet in was a pleasant experience

Went here in late December. This is a little further walk from oyunuma lake (about 10 minutes). You can still dip your feet in the footbath as it feels very luke-warm. Mats are provided for you to sit so you do not wet your bottom....More

It will be very far from Noboribetsu station to River Oyunuma Natural Footbath (around 8-10km away). It will be great to drive there.
How much is the nearest parking place?
