Onsen Hot Springs and SpaUnique natural hot spring with one of the highest concenration of alkaline in Japan (pH11)

Happo onsen which also has a name "Beauty onsen" will make your skin smooth and silky.
Experience on yourself the water with alkaline level (ph11.34) ranked the highest among the hot springs in Japan.
In 2015 we completed a renovation on the outside bath, so that you could enjoy even more comfortable and spacious bath.

Hot springs with a pH11 alkalinity are rare across the globe and the quality of the high-temperature water makes Happo onsen unique.
Because of the high alkalinity level, the onsen water removes the dirt from the skin and has an exfoliating effect,
so you can sense your skin becoming smoother and toxin free.

Hakuba Natural Water

All the water used in the hotel is from the riverbed of the three peaks of Hakuba in Nothern Alps. The water takes a long time to well up from 180 m below the surface, and is a natural mineral water.

The water PH is almost neutral 6.8~7.5, it is soft water of 40~60 degrees (the hardness degree is the amount of calcium, magnesium, etc.). The water is very clean and it is fine in texture and balance.

Happone mount is not from a volcano but from an elevation in the ground and you can see a lot of Serpentinite rocks on the mountain. These rocks consist mainly of magnesium and contain a lot of silicon which is responsible for producing grains of water. The snow that piles up in the mountains melts, penetrates the rocky layer and flows into underground current. The water that has been filtering through the natural "filter" of serpentenite rocks over long years and months has a clear and mild taste.
