Noboribetsu Bear Farm
There is something really distasteful to me about so-called bear farms. It is a personal thing, others may enjoy this sort of entertainment.You get to feed the bears and watch them perform tricks. : \Take the ropeway up the mountain to the farm. Maps at most hotels/ryokans will show you the way. Enjoy the bear for the strong yet gentle animal it is. And keep trying to convince yourself that they are still cute and happy at the farm. -Go for a hot springs bath. The Dai-ichi Takimotokan Hotel has floor after floor of hot spring pools, waterfalls and steam rooms. There is even a big swimming pool with a waterslide.Back in 1999 it cost 2000yen for non-guests. Guests of the hotel gets to play all day for free.
