Stayed here on 18-20 Feb 2015 (Chinese new year) at their suite,明月, on half board. Cost about SGD $600 plus for 2 per nights from Booking.com Hotel is situated about half hour from Obihiro city centre.

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

Located near Obihiro city, about 25 minutes Taxi Rides, the location is very quiet and relax.... The room charge about 150 USD per person is considerably expensive. The check in time is 2pm and by check out is 10 AM, the interval of stay is considered relatively short compare to other hotels. Check in is efficient, and guests are escorted... More

We spent one night in this hotel, in a standard Japanese style room. The layout is very good. Very comfortable and cozy. All staffs are very polite and helpful. Our view from the room is slightly disappointed as we are on the 2nd floor and facing the roof of the hotel restaurant. Other than that, the room is really nice.... More
