The moment we stepped in to this hotel , we knew it'll be a good experience. We were politely greeted by the friendliest staffs ever. The hotel is wonderfully decorated with characters. One of the most beautiful hotel in this area. The dining (we opt for full crab kaiseki dinner) was excellent. The best kaiseki we've ever had. It's worth... More

The ambience in the hotel is superb - from lobby to surrounding of the hotel. Especially entrance driving into the hotel - superb view. The room is nice as well esp we got the highest level cos we requested a non smoking room . The onsen entrance is quite grand and it's quite spacious in the bath area but outdoor... More

We were wowed the moment we entered the hotel - the lobby was tastefully decorated and we were ushered to a sofa, offered hot towels and a welcome drink while check in was done. The room was very comfortable and the buffet dinner spread was sumptuous. There is an outdoor foot-bath which made for an interesting experience.

The rather plain exterior of this hotel belies what is within - wonderful interior design with lots of natural materials and clean lines. The guest room we had on the second floor was spectacular. Very roomy, with a private outdoor onsen looking on to a beautiful green view. The public onsen is rather more basic and its outdoor part rather... More

We checked into this hotel in the late afternoon after a drive from Lake Akan. During check in, I realized that I left my camera tripod at the Lake Akan hotel. Upon ascertaining that we stayed at a hotel under the same chain (Yuku no Sato Tsuruga), the hotel staff immediately offered to have the tripod sent to us by... More

After a long drive we finally reached this good onsen hotel. The room was spacious, clean and nice. The good onsen in the hotel helped to wash away all our tiredness. The kaiseki dinner provided by the hotel was very delicious. We enjoyed every dish and all of them were excellant. After dinner, we had a pleasant walk around the... More

The hotel is half way between Memanbetsu Airport and Abashiri Centre. Room spacious and comfortable we opted for Japanese Modern room. The dinner and breakfast buffet had varieties of selaction both japanese and europeen. Lobby and lounge had impressive decorations. The outdoor onsen and hot stone sauna were very nice. If you don't drive a taxi is the only option... More

My second time to this hotel. The service quality of the staff here are excellent! The kaiseki dinner was particularly good, in terms of freshness and tastes, it still beats all the other ryokans I have stayed at both in previous trips as well as this time.
