Onsen Salts from Noboribetsu, Hokkaido, Japan


Japan has an abundance of natural hot springs (onsen, 温泉 ). There’s said to be 2,500 onsens dotting the island nation. Most onsens are communal, you are not supposed to wear any clothing and in most cases, you are not allowed to bathe if you have any visible tattoos. For those of us who dream of visiting onsen and who aren’t physically able to get to one, this product lets you relive and experience the onsen at home.

Noboribetsu Onsen is one of the three most famous hot spring places on the northern island of Hokkaido. It’s situated in the northeast part of Muroran City at the foot of the volcanic Mount Hiyori and filters through more than 10,000 litres of hot spring water daily through its various onsens. You can visit what is known as Hell Valley in Noboribetsu where the steam rises from the mountains and hot water bubbles up from the Tessen Ike geyser. Stone demon statues decorate the city centre and trails weave between the oaks in the Noboribetsu Primeval Forest.

These Noboribetsu Onsen salts are described as having the scent of "clear air wafting through the forests” with a “milky-white, snow-like colour.”

Like all onsen, healing properties are attributed to the compounds found in the water, from relieving eczema to lowering your blood pressure and easing aching muscles.
