This hotel is located at the quiet part of Otofuke-cho. The rooms are comfortable with tatami and the bathroom is very clean and new looking. We stayed 2 nights and had buffet dinner and breakfast together with our accommodations. The food served was not especially special, though they are fresh and of much local products. The onsen standard there is... More

Hotel is located with a small and quiet town with a view of the river. There's no snowscape in summer but I can imagine how beautiful it'll look in winter. We splurged on a bigger room with dinner in the room. Food were well prepared and delicious. Waitstaff does not speak any English but provided good service. I'm usually not... More

Stayed in the hotel for 1 night in May. I do not usually like to sleep on tatami, however it was unimaginably comfortable at Kangetsuen. The hotel was very attentive to guests'comfort and provided bands to hold the sleeves of yukata during meals.Though the buffet spread was not exactly of wide variety, the food was very fresh specially the breakfast...

Certainly the best hotel I stayed in Hokkaido during my 5 days trip. What makes me recommend a hotel, especially in Hokkaido wintry months are as follow: 1) Great sleep quality (comfy futons + general quietness of hotel) 2) Great onsen (especially for that pre-dinner, post dinner and pre breakfast onsen session) 3) Great breakfast or dinner (wide range of...

This was our first hotel for our winter Hokkaido trip 2013. Enjoyed the tatami room and especially love having two sinks in the bathroom which is separate from the toilet with its own tiny sink (so convenient and hygienic). The kaiseki style dinner was very good. Best part of this hotel is the outdoor onsen. It was a Japan hour... More

The hotel is just by the river and the bridge. The dinner is great kaiseki style. Room is the traditional with the private onsen. Will sure be back. Right across the street there is a ramen stall and is very good too.

Was good to stop it when arriving from Sapporo airport and going to Lake Akan. The hotel is not luxury, but the rooms are nice (Japanese style, and not too bad for sleeping). The dinner we had was very good, with a lot of different dishes: crab + nice meat cooked at your table and very good fishes (sushi +... More

We spent 1 night in this hotel because we don't want to drive all the way from Lake Akan to Sapporo within the same day. There's nothing very special about this hotel other than its proximity to Sapporo. We had a breakfast & Kaiseki dinner package which we did not have too much of expectations after another Kaiseki dinner at... More
