I visited Nanporo hot spring resort in Ebetsu city.
Nanporo is part of Ebetsu city and Ebetsu is just next to Sapporo, capital of Hokkaido.
It takes 30 min. from Sapporo to Ebetsu by local JR ( Japan rail ) train.
You can easily access to Ebetsu from Sapporo but Nanporo hot spring resort is bit difficult to arrive at.
If you'd like to go there by public transportation you need to take subway or JR train and get to Shin-Sapporo station at first.
Then, transfer to the local bus「Yutetsu-bus to Nanporo. Kuriyama （夕鉄バス・南幌・栗山方面）」 and drop off at 「Nanporo Onsen-mae（南幌温泉前）」
It is difficult for foreigners to find correct transportation and get there but it worth a visit!
Today, I introduce how great they are.
