will u be driving? where will u be travelling from?
maybe u can visit lake akan which is not too far off. or go shiretoko, but that is further and will be better if u have another day or more
Shiretoko, as in Shiretoko National Park? Still in my planning stage so not sure where I will be coming in from, but most probably coming from Asahikawa or Sounkyo. Unfortunately my driver does not want to do self drive so the next best thing for us is a customised tour.

there are two kinds of these

some ryokans only have public baths

some have family or couple baths, which you can book to use for short duration for a fee.

The most premium one will be attached baths that have onsen water piped to it.

I suggest checking out Hakone, Nikko or Kinukagawa. Availability and pricing is going to vary. I like these kind of ryokan since they provide dinner and breakfast. Check in, go sightseeing, go back onsen and eat... then wake up a little earlier and go have a morning bath in the onsen for good measure before breakfast

yah, shiretoko national park.
customised tour means transport catered for, guided tour? maybe u can ask the agency for recommend itineraries that covers shibazakura park

Japan during New Year

I am visiting Kansai region from the 28 Dec to 2 Jan. I've read that most of the places will be closed and travelling will be a pain.

Any recommendation on what is there to do during new year?

Thanks in advanced!

If you have the JR Pass, you can go make your reservations at any JR ticket window.

If you are still in SG, then you do not have the JR Pass. You just have an exchange coupon for the JR Pass. The real JR Pass can only be received in Japan.

I am pretty sure most trains and buses are still running. You can go anywhere up to new years eve.

On New Years Day, you can go visit a temple. And maybe take a walk around the countryside. On the 2nd day, most of the big shops will be open.
