This is a nice ryokan to stay at when visiting Noboribetsu.
It is very welcoming - I was picked up at the bus station. It is not central in the town but only a 10-15 minute walk, so easy enough. The first thing that struck me was how clean the ryokan was, everything was neat and in place. The Team were very welcoming,a nd service excellent. There is a lovely well-kept garden outside as well, and the owner makes a big effort to also welcome you and have a chat.
My room was very small, but something I am used to in Japan. I was surprised to have beds in the room and they look comfortable and inviting. But when I sat on the bed it was soooo hard - there were no spring or a matress, but a wooden frame and base, and a very thin futon mattress, along with another very thin hard mattress. It was also very hot in the room.
I am ok sleeping on tatami and futon's but this bed was really uncomfortable. I would recommend asking for a tatami room - I think they are also a lot bigger anyway.
The dinner and breakfast were exceptional, very enjoyable and beautifully presented.
Overall this was a great choice of ryokan to stay, and a great little town as well.
