Marukoma has a sublime onsen with numerous indoor and outdoor baths with great views of lake Shikotsu. The onsen is open to customers not staying at the hotel between 10h and 15h daily, for 1000 yen. In other respects (including the rooms and cuisine), this hotel has a tired and institutional feel.

Maruloma Onsen Ryokan is located on the north of Lake Shikotsu, away from town and amenities. Our package includes kaiseki dinner and buffet breakfast. This is an old traditional ryokan. Rooms were clean and well kept. We were initially concerned that the rooms are not air-conditioned as it's summer and the weather can be hot. While we have views of... More

Stayed for one night. Onsen was very good and spacious. Most impressive was the helpfulness of the front desk manager who help me with my next hotel booking as I couldn't speak japanese. Overall, okay room ( no AC but fan provided and smells of smoke - level 2 rooms), okay food, awesome onsen, outstanding front desk manager.

Sadly everything about this Onsen just didn't live up. The site we ordered through (Rakuten Travel) stated that there was a free shuttle bus too and from the Onsen, sadly this was not the case once we called up to book it and it was 500 yen each person each way. Once we got there and were shown to our... More

Marukoma was our first accomodation on our very first trip to Japan. Writing we experienced a culture shock is an understatement, but it was a very pleasant culture shock. International travellers coming here with an open mind will certainly thouroughly enjoy their stay and probably never forget it. We booked through Japanican.com, since the website is only in Japanese and... More
