This is a simple, clean and comfortable hotel. My group of 4 stayed in a Japanese room and was of a reasonable size. After placing the 4 mattresses it was left with just a little space to walk around. This hotel has a public bath with water from the local underground sulphur water.

This is a sulfur hot spring hotel, makes the skin smooth. The room is big, with beds, thank god! Cannot get up from tatami at night to go to bathroom. Only lobby has wi-fi, very inconvenient, super slow too.

If you drive to Kawayu, do be watchful as you may miss the turning into the driveway that lead into the parking area of the hotel. We did and had to drive a few rounds before we found it. The interior of the hotel though looks a bit new but tacky and dim. However, the staff with their limited English were as helpful as possible. The Japanese-styled room we stayed in was slightly larger than usual, clean and comfortable. The room came with 2 meals, breakfast and dinner. Though the breakfast was the usual Japanese fare, the dinner was good - it's kaiseki dinner! Of course, there was the onsen, afterall the hotel is located in Kawayu onsen area. Location wise, it's pretty convenient to access other nearby attractions such as Lake Akan and Lake Mashu. Overall, it's a comfortable ad comfortable stay.

This is a traditional Japanese hotel served with meals. Dinner is tasty and superb! Breakfast is served as buffet. It is not newly opened hotel but everything is tidy and in good order. We don't speak Japanese but it's not a problem. Staff there is nice and helpful. We visited Hokkaido in winter and this is recommended.

Sorry but this hotel really did not meet my expectations. The room was old and the hotel refused to turn on the air conditioning even though it was really hot and humid. I'm guessing at least 32 degrees Celsius and very high humidity. They did provide us with a fan which helped a little bit. To be fair to the hotel, we did check another hotel nearby who also said they are not using the air conditioning. Apparently they only turn on the air conditioning from 1st July onwards. At night, insects found their way into our room and also left stains on our futons (what? don't ask my how or why because I don't know). There were quite a lot of them and I guess they were attracted to the light. We did have a fly net over the windows but I guess it didn't work! I should mention that I did stay at two other Ryokans in Hokkaido during my trip, both of which provided air conditioning despite having cooler weather conditions and both did not have any insects in the rooms. The onsen was not well maintained and had green mold on the taps and the walls. It was quite gross. I found myself wondering whether I should turn around and just go back to my room. Like I mentioned above I had stayed at two other Ryokans, and those onsens were VERY clean and well maintained. I was very disappointed. In summary, I do not recommend this hotel. To be fair I don’t really recommend going to Kawayu either, as I found the town to be old and tired. I went in summer, so perhaps things are different in winter, spring or autumn.
