The hotel is located very near to the Hell valley, and convenient to the main street of the Noboribetsu. Anyway the town is not big. The room is Japanese style, with good size. However, overall the hotel is a bit old. A lot of tourists staying there, Chinese, Taiwanese and even local Japanese. It makes the place not a quiet... More

My family of 7 adults and 1 toddler stayed in 3 Japanese-style rooms for 2 nights. It's one of the bigger ryokan hotels we've stayed at. I think the hotel was quite fully occupied looking at the crowd at the onsen after dinner, but the place never really felt over-crowded as we walked around because of the huge hotel grounds....

Nice Tatami room, Very nice Onsen and as well a swimming pool with a waterslide which our kids enjoyed a lot......... Buffet in the evening and in the morning had a lot of variety but after a day it becomes a bit boring. We enjoyed our time there!

I almost always agree with the reviews but not this time. I'm not sure if all these other people that said how wonderful this place was and how it had "the best breakfast of my life" have never travelled before or if the mineral spring water made them delirious. The hotel really needs a make over. The carpet is old.... More

We visited this place for the onsen & simply loved the place. We were a little hesitant to go in at first as you cannot wear anything inside but later on the onsen made us happy. We would recommend this to anyone who is visiting Hokkaido.
