Jimmy san, the owner of the guesthouse, speaks impeccable English and has a great sense of humour. Although the guesthouse is not near the Furano Station, Jimmy san will send you to and fro or wherever in the vicinity which you wish to go. Hence, no worries for those who do not have their own transport. The room is big... More

Stayed here for 2 nights between 31 Jul - 2 Aug 2014. The pension is located quite far from the JR station, but wasn't a problem to reach as we drove there. It's very quaint and cosy as it only has 5 rooms. The room size was quite large. While the bathrooms are communal, they are kept extremely clean and... More

Jimmy-san is such a good and caring host of the pension. We initially plan to stay only for two nights but with the fresh home-made bread and breakfast in the morning echoing with the nice sunny weather, coinciding with the tempting dinner all cooked by Mrs. Jimmy makes us an irresistible extended stay for another day. The environment is spacious,... More

One of the highlights of our recent trip to Hokkaido, was a homestay at Pension Ashitaya in Furano. My son found this place on Trip Advisor while planning for our vacation. It is also not far (about 10 minutes drive) from Farm Tomita which was resplendent with lavender and other floral blooms in their glory. The home owner Nakajima-san aka... More

This is a very well kept house with very friendly owner. Mr jimmy speaks very good English, which helps a great deal as it was our first day in Hokkaido. The room was nice, with good view. He breakfast was very good.

Pension Ashitaya While established hotel chains gives consistency and no surprises, for the adventurous optimh to stay in a B&B usually means a home-stay with higher quality food & personalized services. It is always the owner-operator who makes a big difference to your holiday. Nakajima-San, also known as Jimmy, @ his wife works super hard to keep this baby going.... More

Enjoying their lovely breakfast and admiring the scenic view from the pension, one cannot ask for more. I only wish there could be more road signs along the way to direct us to its location when I visit again.

My family of 3 stayed last summer here and the owner Jimmy and his family are amazing! He speaks excellent English as he had previously stayed in the USA. The room is spacious, cosy and well-furnished. Jimmy picked us from the station on the first day, and he or his wife drove us whenever we needed to leave or return... More
