Pros: Accessible by limited bus every 2 hours/40 mins from Toyako Onsen bus terminal (you can use bus from Toyako Onsen bus Terminal bound for JR Toya, Showa Shinzan or Murouran). 170yen to/from Showa Shinzan (Usuzan Ropeway), 230 yen to/from Toyako onsen. Bus stop name Sobetsu onsen, less than 1 min walk. Big room size equipped with toilet and had very nice lake view. Shower/onsen were shared. If you want to escape the densed Toyako Onsen area, this would be a good choice for reasonable price for half board. Dinner in Japanese style was very good, breakfast was OK. Staff were helpful. Cons: No non-smoking room. Building smells of cigarette. Conclusion: My 2 nights stay there was hampered by my mistake of not realizing the rooms were all smoking rooms (even with deodorization, it still smells of cigarette). Otherwise, it would be a good stay in Sobetsu…
We had a lovely time at this little ryokan on the lakeside road to Toyako, much more affordable than the hotels in Toyako itself and only a short drive down the ride from there. It was our honeymoon and we received two warm cobs of sweetcorn as a welcome gift. We were a bit mystified by this but ate them anyway and they were absolutely delicious - sweetcorn is a specialty there, it turned out! The onsen facilities are quite basic, no special foot baths or anything, but they are clean and hardly anyone is there in the late evening and mid-morning. Our room was clean and spacious with tatami matting and futons laid out. They use bead pillows so if you're a softie like me you might want to wrap some clothes around them to make them a bit softer. Staff had limited English but were very welcoming and did their best to help out. They don't really do food here but they can recommend some food places down the road - Cafe Jalibu is a short drive further towards Toyako and they have an English language menu and brilliant Vietnamese/Japanese food and a great atmosphere with a record player, if that's any help! That place shuts at 8pm, just in time to go and watch the fireworks on Toyako lakeside.…
