Situated in Lake Akan area, about a 2 hour drive from Kushiro station, Akan Tsuruga Bessou Hina no Za is definitely my most memorable stay at any hotel. We went there during early April 2017 and luckily it was still snowing so the town was beautifully covered in white. Starting with the preparation, I had emailed the hotel inquiring about...

This was meant to be the highlight of our trip to Japan but it turned out to be the worst hotel that we stayed in. The cons: - view is obstructed by the side of the Shangri-La hotel - the town is a tacky tourist trap with little taste - the whole floor where our room was smelt like a...

Each room has a small private outdoor bath tub. Food is standard onsen style served in a room in restaurant not in own room. Quality of food is just standard, you may find better elsewhere. However, surroundings are unbeatable. You really can have nice relaxation walking or biking around the lake and sitting in your balcony.

We stayed here two nights. The hotel itself was gorgeous from the foyer to the rooms. Lighting was relaxing and there was a no shoes policy throughout the hotel. The Japanese style room was very spacious and had a private onsen (small though and could have done with a bit of a scrub) a sitting area and a message chair....

This property is beyond my expectations. Externally, it is quite unremarkable. Rather oldish looking and even a little run down. Inside is a whole different world altogether. It is owned by the Tsuruga Group of Hotels, which seems to have a near monopoly on the hotel business in the Lake Akan area. This must be their top end hotel amongst...
