Is Furano a good place to enjoy onsen? Coz I already booked my hotel at sapporo, so it's quite impossible to stay overnight at any ryokens...

I found a few hot spring sides, including the noboribetsu, Jozankei, and lake toya....but since I only visit during daytime, noboribetsu rike nothing to do besides hotspring...
scare jozankei not as good as noboribetsu, lake toya they say difficult to find onsens...

and we really want to visit ningle terrace at furano in the evening, and furano has onsen facility as well, so wanna ask if its good to put them in one day?

or should cater one day to visit norbori/jozan/lake toya....need advice!! thanks

I saw quite a number of guys carry those small sling bag/pouch. Wonder where to get one
You can get one at Tokyo Hands here. Overpriced. Coach has similar one.

Jr pass doesn't work on most of the lines in Tokyo except for jr owned lines in Japan. Can refer to the leaflet given to you...

JR train will stop at JR station.
for most places, the JR station and other metro and subways are just next to each other, so it doesn't really matter

Use Google Map



Or you can study the Tourist Route map

i tried studying google map, therefore i'm thinking whether should i take a subway or take a JR train if it is much cheaper considering i need to walk further from Jr namba station. so i can assume i cannot use my Jr pass for any subway other den JR train only which only stop at JR station

u cant use JR pass for non-JR lines.
where are u heading to? actually these few stations are not too far apart and u are likely to walk pass all of them if u are shopping around Nanba station

i'm heading to Shinsaibaishi Shopping Arcade, looking at the map its nearer to Shinsaibaishi subway station, but i'm considering the price/distance if i were to use my Jr pass to take the JR train to JR namba station and walk all the way there.

Depends on whether you want to save that few dollars. I had the JR pass the first time I went Kansai and I didn't use it much there because I use googlemap and basically just took the subway or any private line that is the nearest.
