We stayed here during our recent trip to Japan and it was wonderful. The many onsens were beautiful and romantic. We went in the fall and they give you rubber boots and a winter yukata to trek to the different onsens.

On a quest to find the perfect hitou ryokan, my girlfriend and I decided to stay two nights during our trip to Hokkaido for the Sapporo snow festival. After seeing the sights and exploring the cities Sapporo and Asahikawa, we were looking to spend our...

“All of the rooms are fine, but there are a few rooms that can provide a view of a small stream that snakes its way around the ryokan. Additionally, note that the cheaper rooms do not have an in-room bathroom. I would like to stress that toilets are close-by as are sinks for brushing your teeth, etc. Lastly, if you are wondering about the meal plans, there is virtually no difference. Save yourself some cash and go with the economical option...you will not be disappointed.”
