Otaru is such a cute, lovely city. Though it's quite small, there are lots of pretty buildings with orgol music in the air. A guide book said, 'it's not worth while to stay a night in Otaru, 'cause most of the facilities closes around 6pm, and nothing more to see other then those.'. Yes, it's true, most of the shops...

It is a modern onsen hotel right next to the canal. It does not have a grand entrance like the traditional onsen hotels, but we were impressed by its nicely decorated lobby. It is so cosy and unique. The staff are very friendly too. Its onsen is relatively small but nice. The room is quite spacious. The location is great,... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Furukawa Ryokan in Otaru. The friendliness of the staff, together with the quality of the resort made for a very relaxing stay. We particularly enjoyed chilling out in the library with a bottle of wine after taking an onsen bath, listening to the nice music. The rooms were clean and quiet, with a... More

Our first stay here on our 3rd trip to Otaru. For the price, it offers sufficient space and more than adequate service. Rooms were comfortable and the Japanese room we stayed in even had an in-room "mini onsen" The location suited our needs; near lots of eating places and at the end of the shopping/sightseeing/tourist street, and just across from...

We stayed in the top floor suite with onsen in the room. View is spectacular! Very spacious in the room as we had a twin bedrm space, a TV living room and another traditional Jap living rm. Soaking in onsen and overseeing the Otaru coast line and canal is a really a wonderful experience. Dinner is good but it did... More

Although I only stay in Otaru for 1 night, I do feel this is a wonderful ryokan. Right after got off at Otaru JR station, abt 15 walk easily to Furukawa, of course with many luggages you could use taxi, 5 mins and JPY 500. And don't be surprised when you step into their amazing lobby :) Room is cozy,... More

I was traveling with friends to Hokkaido and found this nice hotel which is locate next to the canal. I really love the location. I have a walk after dinner and before breakfast. The location is also close to the main shopping and tourists spot. It is approximately 5-10 mins walk from JR station. Our package included breakfast and dinner.... More

We spent one night in the Furukawa Onsen Hotel beginning of February 2013 together with our friends. The Furukawa is conveniently located near the Channel and not too far away from the train station. The staff at the reception was very friendly and helpful. English language skills are sufficient and the manager in the restaurant was fluent in English. Our... More

Booked this hotel online and on arrival the staff was very kind, they served us welcome drinks while we arranged to be checked in. Luggage was quickly taken to our rooms and we were shown our way after. The onsen is a big plus for this hotel, as the toilets in the room can be a little tight. Suggest taking... More
