Visiting here with our 3-year old boy and friends. We booked two rooms with one of it has a in room hot spring bath. Location is around 20mins by car from the train station. Free shuttle bus schedule is not very often (1.5-2 hour) so taxi might be the only choice unless you drive. Hotel staff are very friendly. Can...

Cosy and nice hotel with relatively spacious rooms . Our room faces the lake and thus had quite a good view. Breakfast consists of a good variety of quality food. The hotel also has an onsen with an outdoor soak where you can see snow falling during winter time. Though the hotel is next to the lake , because the...

We enjoyed one night stay at this hotel on 22 Dec 2016. The hotel staff were friendly, polite and excellent customer service. They had arranged a connecting room for my son and ours. We liked the cleanliness at this hotel and our spacious bedrooms. We loved the food served at dinner and breakfast, especially fresh sashimi and sushi. The restaurant...

This hotel truly represents the Hokkaido spirit. It's not as stuffy as Kyoto, but the service is up there due to the friendliness and how personable everyone is. Humble staff who are approachable and absolutely divine cuisine. Don't come here expecting the traditional, quaint onsen experience, but trust that you will be satisfied, leaving with a full stomach. The quality...

Traditional style onsen hotel. During check-in, gave me an English introduction of the hotel which was good. The interior looks recently re-furnished, especially the buffet breakfast place which looks extremely nice. Dinner consisted of local ingredients mostly from Tokachi area which was fresh and good and must not miss. Large onsen area and large rooms, free wifi. Remember to visit...

This is an intimate establishment although it is sizable. Quality of onsen water at Tokachigawa is very good and your skin feels replenished after soaking. Room quality is good and river view is always recommended. There is however not much around the hotel in terms of sightseeing but if you drive things are not that far away.

This hotel is located at the quiet part of Otofuke-cho. The rooms are comfortable with tatami and the bathroom is very clean and new looking. We stayed 2 nights and had buffet dinner and breakfast together with our accommodations. The food served was not especially special, though they are fresh and of much local products. The onsen standard there is...

Hotel is located with a small and quiet town with a view of the river. There's no snowscape in summer but I can imagine how beautiful it'll look in winter. We splurged on a bigger room with dinner in the room. Food were well prepared and delicious. Waitstaff does not speak any English but provided good service. I'm usually not...

Stayed in the hotel for 1 night in May. I do not usually like to sleep on tatami, however it was unimaginably comfortable at Kangetsuen. The hotel was very attentive to guests'comfort and provided bands to hold the sleeves of yukata during meals.Though the buffet spread was not exactly of wide variety, the food was very fresh specially the breakfast...
