We stayed here in early April when the lake was still frozen and with Mt Oakan also in view, the place looked absolutely stunning. This hotel boasts of three outdoor onsens from the first and 8th floors and it’s a joy just let the hot bath reinvigorate your body and mind. The best thing about this hotel is the service.... More

We stayed at the Bekkan for one night. There's a special lounge for Bekkan customers with free flow of non-alcoholic drinks and snacks from 7 am to 11 pm daily. We also get to check in and check out in the lounge, avoiding the long lines at the front desk. The room is huge with a view of the lake.... More

I don't think you can more picturesque than this location. I stayed here as part of a Pac Set Soul of Autumn tour group and while my initial impression was "Wow!" it later settled down a few notches. Our guide had booked us rooms with a private onsen, which many people took advantage of. However, I'm not a fan of... More

We booked our sea facing tatami room for 3 via their official website. We planned early so we were able to enjoy good early bird discount. Big room, big multiple onsens, big quality buffet dinner & breakfast. Interesting craft street just outside hotel, excellent home cooked tempura restaurant opposite hotel and cruise station just next door. Service is excellent. Clubhouse... More

We stayed in 2 different rooms with private outdoor onsen, one larger room and another smaller corner room with private onsen and a lovely panoramic view. A personal overview of Akan Yuku No Sato Tsuruga: Pros: 1. Beautiful lakeside view from both rooms but especially from the smaller room with a fabulous unobstructed view of Lake Akan. 2. Water from... More

The hotel is well located for the Ainu Kotan area and the embarkation point for the lake cruise. The rooms are well appointed and the baths are really good, especially the rotenburo on the ground floor which provides fabulous views over the lake. The Viking dinner and breakfast are both extensive and provides more than enough to eat.

We got a room with a private tub, and it was very nice. They have two onsen, which rotate between genders daily. The roof onsen is the one to aim for. Gorgeous view. The other onsen is on ground floor and is nice also, but cannot compare. Our room was a japanese style room. The futon they provide is a... More

We had a lovely stay in the open-air bath in-room. It has great lake view >> http://www.tsuruga.com/en/rooms/bekkan/openair_bath.html Not a big fan of tatami tho', it would be better if there's a western bed choice. Great surprise in room is the nice wooden rocking-chair. We have a great and relax stay!
