This accommodation offers the opportunity to stay in the home of someone who is passionate and knowledgable about birds, speaks good English, and who can help, for example, to arrange boat trips. Our bedroom was fairly basic and the toilet and bathroom was shared with other guests. Meals are taken at a large table and the evening meals were some... More

Lodge Furen is a wonderful down-to-earth place that offers authenticity and a rare proximity to nature. The owners, Take-san and his wife, are incredibly kind and welcoming people, who also speak English. Take-san is an avid birder, and definitely the best source of information I've found about where and how to tackle Hokkaido wildlife. The meals I had here were... More

Food may be challenging for foreigners, though breakfast includes toast, jam and coffee. Unusually for Japan, the owner keeps the house at exactly the right temperature - neither too hot (like most hotels) nor too cold (like some... More

My wife and I spent three nights with the Matsuos at their mishuku. We wanted to get to the tip of Hokkaido, away from cities, and do some walking and birding. Couldn't have found a better spot: right on the boundary of a sanctuary run by the Wild Bird Society of Japan, and Mr. Matsuo is an avid birder and... More
