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.

The traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast you get was abundant and very interesting for a Canadian.

No one spoke English at the Ryokan but everyone was warm and friendly!

I would highly recommend it!

It is hard to put into words just how amazing an experience Ginkon-yu really was! 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 last few nights relaxing in nature and the comfort of a great onsen in the snow. We could not have made a better choice.
From the start, everything was perfect. Traveling from Sapporo to Otoshibe by train, we called ahead to the hotel in order to arrange for transport back to the ryokan. The front desk staff was very helpful and simply asked what time we would arrive. When our train pulled up to the station, our chauffeur was waiting, and ushered us into a warm, idling vehicle pulled right up to the exit of the station. We drove for 20 minutes or so to the ryokan, surrounded all the while by snow-covered mountains basking in the fading light of the day...
