We stayed at Kifu Club when we visited Shiretoko National Park, and were pretty glad that we chose it among the half-dozen of accommodation options in Utoro. The hotel staff couldn't be more helpful. They helped us with check-in, grabbed *all* of our bags to our room before we had a chance to say no, showed us around the facilities and offered introductions to different dishes at dinner and breakfast. The room was pretty much of what you'd expect in a Japanese ryokan - they convert the sitting area to the sleeping area while you are having dinner. The room spotlessly clean and felt very cozy. We did experience problem with the hot water (varying from scolding hot to freezing cold liberally), and the hotel seems to stop the heat at around 10pm and the room was very cold at night. There was an in-door public onsen and two outdoor private onsens. The open-air onsens are about 20m from the main building and the changing room was open-air as well, so make sure to put on the puffer coat and snow boots (all provided by the hotel) in the winter. Both dinner and breakfast were delicious, and had plenty of local or home-made dishes. Making tempura ourselves was a great experience. If not for the water temperature and the heating issue, this stay would have been perfect. Regardless, I will stay here again next time I visit Shiretoko.

Nothing was too much trouble for the owners of this wonderfully situated small hotel which is ideally placed to watch the glorious sun sets. It's on the coast and we actually saw a bear fishing. We stayed for two nights as many of the main attractions, lakes, waterfalls etc., are close by.

We stayed in one of the log cabins which was really comfortable and a unique stay. The hotel has a public and a private bath. You have an hour access to the private bath for no extra charge. We arrived in time to see the beautiful sunset over the Japan Sea.

I stayed in the Hotel Kifu Club Shiretoko for two nights. The dinner sets served in the tatami dining room were great, and the rooms were typical for a Japanese ryokan: tatami mats and futons with A/C+heater combination for cold or hot weather. The view out the window faced the main road with the sea just beyond. The location itself is just outside the main city, but guests will want to have a car to enjoy the sights like Shiretoko Five Lakes, Kamuiwakka Valley, and Oshinkoshin Falls, which are a short drive from the ryokan. The public and private baths were quite nice. The per night price was high, but not usually so when compared to other similar places in Shiretoko, Japan.

We really enjoyed staying here. Extremely friendly, attentive, and helpful staff. Food was consistently very good, varied and generously portioned. The onsen facilities were clean and comfortable. Rooms were comfortable and we had a great sea view. I'd highly recommend staying here and would ahp

Not a real Ryokan as the food is served in a not very quiet dining room. Food is average in terms of quality and quantity. Rooms are very basic with thin Futon mattresses. Walls are thin, it is possible to verhehearer the conversation next door. Onsen is nice. Overall a wannabe Ryokan which is far too expensive for what they offer.

On a snowy March afternoon we arrived at our accommodation. Modern but traditional at the same time. Disappointed we didn't get to try the open air hot water baths but the meals were fantastic. Breakfast of seafood,cold spring roll, salted salmon, yoghurt, apple juice, tea. Staff have excellent English esp compared to my Japanese - helpful, welcoming smiling always wanting to help. Very comfortable futons, coffee available for those needing a caffeine hit at front reception. Would highly recommend. Loved our night's stay here.

Just east of Utoro on the road to the Shiroteko National Park, the small, modern Kifu Club offers wa-shitsu (traditional) rooms, sea views and excellent dinners. Complimentary yukata, onsen and ample parking. (Shiroteko is best explored by car). Very good value and more atmospheric than the modern high rise hotels on the bluff above the town. As always in Japan, polite and welcoming service.

Stayed for 3 nights in May. Warm friendly staff who are very welcoming. Younger staff speak pretty good English so I didn't need to worry about any misunderstandings from my very average Japanese. Booked a traditional tatami room (beautiful and spacious) which over looked the water. Plenty of room for our luggage. Note, I don't think there's a lift but the staff took our luggage up (we tried to warn them it was heavy). Sure they'd help on check out if asked. Parking available out front. Had the option to book a private onsen (spa bath) but didn't due to time. The highlight though was the food. I was sceptical about booking dinner at one place for our 3 nights but every night was different and equally amazing. From what I understand, mostly if not all regional ingredients. The dinners alone are worth the price of admission. Location wise is a 5 min drive out of town. I'd say a 20min flat walk if you're that way inclined. Don't let the distance put you off as there's not a great deal in Utoro town so not being there at night isn't a concern (maybe there's an underground club scene that I missed - who knows). Bottom line, if you're looking for a place to stay I can highly recommend Hotel Kifu.

We couldn’t fiind fault with this fabulous, homely and well appointed traditional Japanese accommodation in Utoro, a picturesque fishing village on the Sea of Okhotsk. The family provided a warm welcome and delicious local cuisine for both dinner and breakfast. There were both public and private onsens, supplied with hot mineral-rich waters. A real bonus was its proximity to the world heritage Shiretoko Park.
