My husband and I stayed for 2 nights during a 2 week Hokkaido trip. The Chinohate reminded me of the Budapest Hotel: a bit of former glory, doting staff, and traditional Japanese dinners with an abundance of seafood - crab, several sushi courses, fish, shrimp, scallops, roe.... and all the other pickled and salty sides. The outdoor onsen pools in... More

We stayed there because we wanted to stay in the park and hike early morning. Location if perfect for this if you want to climb all the way to mount Rausu. Serious 10 hour hike. If you are an occasional hiker, don't bother. This place is very old style, offers no flexibility and not much advice either. Food is served... More

I highly recommend this place if you are visiting Shiretoko. It is a very short drive from the Shiretoko go lake or from the nature center, don't trust the estimated time Google map provides on this route. I think the longer estimated time from Google is due to people frequently stop on the way to the hotel because you get... More

This Ryokan is nestled in the Shiretoko national park, and has excellent food and onsen. Perfect for bushwalking in Autumn, and for enjoying the natural wonders of the national park. There are a number of paths in the forest, and some onsen in the forest as well, but we stuck to the hotel.

Nice onsen in the woods of Shiretoko. More than 50 years old hotel, getting a bit old in some parts but nice and polite personnel still keeps good care of it. We had late arrival and thus missed the dinner so we were prepared a "dinner box" in our room. Whilst having the next morning breakfast, elderly lady working in... More

Out of serendipity, we picked Hotel Chinohate for our visit of Shiretoko NP. We only had a brief image of how the hotel looks like, but we didn't know what to expect since the hotel website is all in Japanese. With the help from a friend who speaks the language, we got our booking and took our leap of faith.... More
