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

This was the first traditional ryokan that we have stayed it. It was just one night, but one was enough. Friendly staff was the high point, but nothing else was very special about this Ryokan.

The toilets and sinks were next to our room (with hairdryer); we were the only ones using them during our stay so it still felt very private. The shower was on the ground floor. We were made...

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
