As soon as I walked in the door I was welcomed by name and a big smile, setting the tone for the stay. All the staff, even if their English was poor, were friendly and helpful, using their English as best they could to help me in any way they could. One of the managers spoke good English, and was very helpful in helping me plan more of my trip, including spending quite some time with me looking for hotel in Asahikawa. Super service all round.
The room was spacious and standard Japanese Ryokan style. Every day the futon was put away during the day, then relaid every evening, along with fresh tea/ice water. On the first evening, I was given a special welcome drink in the room, along with some local sweets.
Breakfast was Japanese style, and pretty nice. There was plenty of food, even if you don’t like a tasty salmon and rice in the morning.
There is a 24 hour Japanese style bath, which was very pleasant. The location is pretty good, around 10 mins walk from the station, and right next to the Botanical Gardens.
My only complaint was that wifi wasn’t available in the room (only in the lobby, which allows smoking).
