  1. Hello, thank you very much for your reply. Will it be safe to walk from Hoheikyo Onsen to the Nature Village? There won’t be any wild animals right?

    Thank you very much!

    1. Yes, it is.
      But there are many wild animals, foxes, bears, deer and so on.
      It would be better that you walk there talking and clapping to avoid bears. Bears usually don’t attack before you notice your presence.
      Have fun!

  2. Hello! I’ve booked a night stay at the Jozankei Nature Village. Since the bus stops at Hoheikyo Onsen Station, is there a taxi that I can take to the Nature Village?
    Thank you!

    1. No, you can not. I guess.
      Because there is no taxi at Hoheikyo Onsen. It takes 25-30 minutes to Jozankei Nature Village by walk, almost 2.5km.
      If you don’t like walking, you have to get a taxi at Jozankei Onsen.
      Good luck!

  3. My husband and I shall be visiting Jozenkei Natural Village on 22 Feb 2016. We plan to overnight at your cottage and tent house. May I know still available? thanks

    1. I’m not a manager, but I have checked if it is available or not. 22th,Feb is available. Call village for staying. Good luck!

  4. Dear flee my
    Good day to you.

    I’m from Malaysia. . Do interested to stay one night for my kids to enjoy the natural in cottage wood.

    will be travel to Japan on 11th Oct 2015.
    1. I have total 6 of us…myself, my mum, my husband, my sister and my kids age 9 and 4 yrs old

    2. What activities can my kids carry out…but we do not understand japanese language. is fine?


    1. Hi, beelin

      You have two choices for staying. One is cottage, another is tent house. Cottage is available for 5 persons, but it is nice for you to rent 2 cottages which have a kitchen, toilet inside and 2 cottages are face to face, I mean one building. That’s nice for family.

      Tent house is available for up to 7 persons. But It has no kitchen and toilet inside. You have to use them out-side facilities.
      All cottage and tent house are warmed at the stove. You don’t worry about a cold day.

      Cottages are very familiar so that you have to make a reservation in advance. Reservation is available 2 months in advance.
      But unfortunately 11th October is full for cottage and tent house.

      See this PDF file below.

      10月 = October
      cottage = コテージ
      tent house = テントハウス

      Only tent site is available.

      Activities for kids are nice such as playing site, craft making, wondering woods and so on. The village has prepared several kind of activities and events because the day of 10th and 11th are weekend and Japanese holiday. That’s why the village is full.

      Thank you for asking me.
      I hope you will have a nice trip in Hokkaido.

  5. Dear Fleemy,
    We (2 adults & 1 8years old child) shall be visiting Jozenkei Natural Village on 29 Nov2015.
    1) Is there activities for children.
    2) can we go to Futami-tsuribashi Bridge.

    1. Hi, Vincent

      Jozankei Natural Village opens all the year, so you can visit on 29th Nov 2015. The problem is the season, it is the beginning of Winter and could be very cold. If you want to enjoy Hokkaido’s winter, it is nice and maybe not much snow. But red-leaves of autumn is over in Jozankei.

      There are some cottages in the village which are nice for winter season and many activities, events and DIY(Do it yourself) programs of craft making for children.

      Futami Turibashi bridge is located in Jozankei hot-spa. You can go there before or after Jozankei Natural Village.

      Hiroshi Mizukoshi
