I recommend you to visit Midorinokaze Resort Kitayuzawa in Hokkaido. It is 4 star hotel. It is famous for various kind of hot springs and meals. Also, this hotel has an astronomical observatory and beauty treatment. I visited there with my family when I was a junior high school student. Actually, I didn’t like hot spring much because it is too hot for me and it is not interesting. However, when I went to the big outdoor bath in this hotel, I couldn’t believe what is this hot spring because there are various colors and scents.
This hotel has the biggest outdoor hot spring, wood spa which we can walk through the outside and there are 20 small hot springs. These types of hot springs are rare. For example, green tea, wine, moya, Japanese cypress, rokuju which meaning is hope to live long and blueberry hot springs. These scents are so good and make you relax and sleepy. You can sleep well the night because of this hot spring’s effect. Also, inside bathroom, you can enjoy seasonal hot spring, rare hot spring and utaseyu which is like waterfall shower and stream of water cascading onto one’s back. If your body is much warmer, you can take in cool sauna bath. These hot springs make you relax and eliminate some aches. If you feel tired or your body is something bad, you should visit here and these hot springs can heal your body.
However, this hotel is a little expensive to stay. It costs about 20,000 yen per one person for 1 day also you want to go this hotel’s restaurant, you have to pay another cost but there are many plans, so you can choose your room and restaurant considering your cost. Also, this hotel is far from some stations but there are a shuttle bus from JR Sapporo station for free and Shin Chitose Airport station for 1,000 yen for one way ticket. The buses take two and half hours to get to this hotel. This hotel was built in 1996, but it was renewed in 2015 so this hotel is clean. Also, this hotel’s restaurant is so good for example, this hotel has 3 types of meals. First, “seseragi” which is buffet style restaurant. When I visited this hotel, I went there and I remember eating so many food for example stake, pasta, sushi, tempura, fish, omlet, many kind of sweets and fresh fruits. They were delicious. I recommend you to eat roast beef, this texture is soft and the best cuisine of this restaurant. Second, “Morino Kaze Charyo” which is Japanese cuisine restaurant. You can eat seasonal food and various prefecture’s famous cuisine. However, prefecture’s cuisine will change 4 times in a year. I recommend you to eat seafood cuisine. This restaurant’s fish are so fresh and delicious. This restaurant’s seat is private, so you can eat cuisines with nothing care about anyone. Also, if you want to celebrate someone, this restaurant is good. Third, “zen” which is French and Italian restaurant. You can eat French and Italian creative cuisines. Also, this cuisine is corse, so you can enjoy eating many kind of food. Furthermore, this hotel’s staff are so kind. Finally, these are the reason why I recommend you to visit this hotel. So, If you want to relax or eat some great cuisine, you should visit there.
