My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay in Morinoki in the twin room. The guesthouse is like a home away from home, incredibly comforting after backpacking for several months. There are beanbags in the cosy living room, a large collection of manga and DVDs as well. There is an outside terrace overlooking the town which is lovely to have some beers on and watch the sunset.
The hosts were very friendly and accommodating, and the Japanese style breakfast here was the best value and quality we have had anywhere in Japan (390¥ per person for miso, omelette, salad, vegetables and tea). This was the perfect base to explore Otaru and the surrounding areas then come home and watch some movies, which my boyfriend and I had been wanting to do for a while on our trip.
The hostel dog and cat, Hug and Momo, are adorable and very affectionate! We loved our stay and would recommend it to anyone wanting to check out a smaller town in Hokkaido! Go to Le Tao and have the no. 1 cheesecake, it will change your life. We will definitely be back to Morinoki :)More
