Akiu Onsen/Akiu Otaki in winter? 2007/12/31 09:40

Is Akiu Onsen/Akiu Otaki worth visiting in winter (Early/Mid Feb)?

Is it beautiful? Can it be done in an overnight trip to Akiu Onsen?

What other beautiful national park/onsen type day trips can be done to break up the trip down from sapporo?

Hot springs, in general, are very attractive in winter.

Is it beautiful?

I have not been there personally, but it sounds very beautiful:

Can it be done in an overnight trip to Akiu Onsen?

Yes, there are a several ryokan.

What other beautiful national park/onsen type day trips can be done to break up the trip down from sapporo?

Akiu Onsen is NOT a possible day trip from Sapporo! It is located in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture.

For day trips from Sapporo, check the following page:

I didnt mean day trip. I meant just breaking the trip up between Sapporo and tokyo.

Also, what is your recommendation for booking hostels/ryokan in places where there is no online service (eg Tawarayama Onsen)?

Is it too risky to turn up and ask around several ryokan? Or should I attempt to call with my limited skills in Japanese?

It is very unusual to show up at ryokan without a reservation. I don't recommend it. Either try to call or consult here:
