Early July 2014 We arrived earlier than planned as I was caught in less than good shape suddenly. We had lunch at the restaurant. We were shown to our room earlier than would be, such a pleasant surprise n a great comfort to me. We rested until our chosen private onsen room time. Such a refreshing moment to me/us. Ikura-uni...

Due to secluded location, it is quiet and stunnung nature by the lake. Our room had a lake view. The food was very nice but the onsen is the one I fell in love with. I tried outside onsen (roten buro ) twice during my overnight stay and there were no ond, so I could have the whole place to... More

This was another traditional resort which provided Onsen and Japanese style rooms. The view from our room was really nice as the lake was just outside. It was also really cool having Onsen outside while enjoying the beautiful scenery. During dinner, we were also served their traditional meal whereby there were many different courses in small portions. I couldn't understand... More

We arrived at the Marukorma Onsen Ryokan after a long trip on a cold and icy evening to a warm and friendly welcome. We were shown to our room, which was in the traditional Japanese style and very charming. The resort is in a remote location on the shore of a volcanic crater lake, it has some spectacular views, which... More

This Onsen has one of the best locations and views you can get. The onsen is large and the one inside is very hot! The outdoor one has an incredible view. Onsen is open from 4am to 11pm so plenty of time to get in a few sessions. The rooms are traditional Japanese style and was a great cultural experience.... More

Initially, we were deciding between The Tsuruga Resort and this one as we had a great experience staying at other Tsuruga's resorts in Hokkaido at our last trip. However, in the end, we were attracted by the secret onsens available at Marukoma Onsen Ryokan. This ryokan is located at an exclusive area, overlooking the amazing Lake Shikotsu. We had our... More

The hotel/ ryokan is located on a hill, the onsen over looking the lake. Beautiful amazing view. Try to ask for a room overlooking the lake. My room face the car park which can be a little noisy when visitor get in/out of their car. Room is small but comfortable. Sleep on the floor tatami style. Room has a sink... More

The best thing about the hotel was its hot spring and location. The quality of the water is very good, and the outdoor bath are both overlooking the lake. One of the 2 outdoor bath is only one meter away from the lake. The hotel is situated between the forest and lake with no other building around. When the season... More

Positive: very nice dinner, foreigners are seldom sleeping there so the place is truly Japanese. The onsen is very clean, the water is good and the outdoor spa is truly an outstanding experience, especially at autumn. After Marukoma onsen the other spas in Japanese towns are mere imitations. The room is all right, alltogether the ryokan is not new, but... More
