The hotel was a little hard to find, well, easy to spot because it was yellow but hard to find the road into it. The Iruka Hotel (Dolphin Hotel) – room was a large twin, nice and clean and looked directly out to sea which was a little bit wild with a strong breeze blowing after the rain. Beach was... More

Small hotel away from the town, location right on the bay. Reasonable sized room with a great view of the bay. Good sized bathroom. Nice deck for viewing. Good value for the area. Good Japanese style breakfast.

Iruka Hotel sits on a small peninsula just before you enter Utoro village. As such, you get great views of the town and the harbor, plus it enjoys a very quiet location. Rooms are a good size with enough space to spread out and be comfortable. The bathroom is also well laid out, with a nice size shower and bathtub... More

My two-nights stay at Iruka was splendid. We have a sea view room and breakfast served was great. Location was wise was pretty central but having your own mode of transport is mandatory in this part of of the world. Utoro, Shiretoko, Rausu and Shari town are pretty remote so relying on public transport is a non existence fact. Iruka's... More

We stayed 2 nights there and it was great. The rooms were very clean, the hosts are great people and very helpful. A very peaceful place to relax. Not mentioning the cute guy who helped us with 6 heavy luggages and my red one with a broken handle. Its a shame not to get his name though, as I can't... More

Easy to find...just at the back of the Huge Turtle Rock. The place did not have many guest during our stay...which was great for us. Extra quiet to an already peaceful and quiet environment. The proprietors were a rather young couple who served us well. Free coffee and drinks for guest at the dining area...which extends out to a deck... More

We stayed in a room right above the entrance last August. It was quite warm weather and the rooms a without aircon, so very hot! You can open the windows of course but... More

Cosy B&B which is 1.2 km from Utoro Bus terminal. Can arrange for FOC transport if you inform B&B in advance. There is small rock onsen for guests. Owner and staff are helpful and hospitable. Ordered breakfast and dinner throughout my stay as the town was small. However, i discovered that one can get food easily near the visitor centre.... More

The room was very clean and of good size. It's just a few minute drive from the small town utoro, reasonably close to the 5 lakes. View was naturally very good as it was right at the bay. They serve Japanese dinner and breakfast, very good if you like it.
