It was fabulous to be able to experience the true Japanese culture. There is a great car parking area of you come by car. We had to respect the culture and slip on sandals to navigate the Ryokan which was on 2 levels. It was a bit hard to navigate the stairs with slip ons. The shared bathroom and toilet... More

I reserved this through Japaneseguesthouses.com (a great, free service) looking for a traditional inn during my one night in Otaru before the Sapporo Winter Festival. I'd say that I sort of got a traditional inn. The tatami room was spacious, clean, and had a nice sitting area. I was served a Japanese dinner at the low table in my room... More
