Accessible by public transport and near hakkoda ropeway. Good choice of food and very friendly staff. Outdoor onsen was good but we could have enjoyed more if only they have removed pile of snow blocking most of the view.

It is hard for me to write this review. On the one hand, there were some very nice features of the hotel, and there was nothing wrong with it, but on the other hand, the hotel was very expensive for what it offered. The positives were that the room was comfortable with an upstairs bedroom and a small living room and bathroom downstairs. We had quite a few stink beetles in the room although it was gauzed and probably only a seasonal problem. The building where we stayed was probably built in the 1970’s and the furniture was newer than this but certainly a bit dated. The food was adequate and the staff were very nice. The location was beautiful as we were in the middle of koyo and the trees were at peak autumn colour. The inside and outside onsens were top notch with clean, hot mineralized water and a nice view. The downsides of the hotel were that the meals although adequate, were not as fine or as sophisticated as they have been for some hotels where we paid half the amount. For example at Jozenkei, we stayed in a beautiful hotel for about half the rate and the menu contained 11 courses for dinner with each one looking like a painting. At Jogakura, we always had sufficient, but the tableware was not as beautiful and the offerings neither as attractive nor as sophisticated as at Jozenkei. I also drew the line at sashimi horse meat! The breakfast was buffet and there were many Japanese offerings including scallops, salmon roe, natto, curry sauce and fish as well as several kinds of vegetables and pickles, rice and miso soup. In the Western section there was one cereal –probably puffed rice with some other ingredients, as well as fruit, and salad vegetables, croissants and a couple of other things. As commented above, the staff were very friendly, but no-one spoke much English and it was hard to communicate. There seemed to be a number of tour groups visiting at the same time as us. Would I stay there again? Yes I would if the price was good but for $A2,200 for four nights, it was not the luxury experience I expected.

This is not exactly the easiest hotel to get to - lots of winding mountain roads. But the food pretty much makes it worth it. Dinner was kaiseki, good mix of dishes and nothing disappointed. Breakfast is a buffet - mainly Japanese but some Western as well. All very good. The bath is nice, although the outdoor bath especially seemed a bit shallow. Rooms are decent (we had a 2-level “Maisonette” style room. The sitting room area could have been nicer. And there was a real lack of electrical outlets, which could have been problematic if I hadn’t brought an extension cord, plus unplugging a lamp and the coffee maker. WiFi was strong and fast. Overall very enjoyable and worth staying at.

Nice hotel, with great room, a bit isolated. The parc around the hotel is beautiful. The dinner was perfect. Original and good meal. The breakfast is a buffet, with lot of choice (mainly Japanese style) and good quality The onsen is simple (2 baths + rotenburo + sauna) but very clean and full equipped.

The location is a little bit isolated, but that is part of the charm of the place, it's a perfect way to take a break and stop thinking about the worries of your nomal life. The food is fantastic, I had a meal with 10 different dishes at least and all where local food cooked in a traditional aomori way. The quantity was suprisingly big for japanese standards. The onsen is open almost all night (they take a break of only 1-2 hours) and their rotenburo (japanese open air bath) is great to start the day. Going out of the hotel you are straight into nature if you want to take a walk and admire the red leaves in autumn. The rooms are spacious and some rooms include a traditional wooden bath. Definitely recommend it to recharge your batteries
