Noboribetsu Onsen 登別温泉: Of demon landmarks and shopping street

By Cubie - October 15, 2012

Fukurou 梟 to welcome you to enter a souvenir shop
If you are doing self-drive, you could dropby Lake Kuttara. It is nicely on the way to Noboribetsu. Oh well, as per my previous post, we took the Donan public bus, so we had to dropped Lake Kuttara and proceed straight to the onsen town.

There isn't much activities around town. There's isn't a need anyway, as all you should do is rest, relax and optimise your time in the onsen. But fear not souvenir hunters, there is a shopping street with plenty of souvenirs shops dotting the street.

In between shopping, try to have a look out for some of the demon landmarks. However I think it is fairly unlikely to miss them. :P

There were also scheduled karakuri (mechanism/automation) shows at Enmado (Judge of Afterlife). In summer - 10 am, 1 pm, 3 pm, 5 pm, 8 pm and 9 pm. Same time in winter but last show at 8 pm. It is not a long show, so I think a good it's worth to coincide your walk with one of the show time. :)

If you have time, you can check out the Oyunuma Foot Bath which is not too far off. I was told it probably takes 30 minutes to walk there from the bus station.

Side note: I should learn how to make a mean yummy nasi lemak to curb all the cravings
