After climbing mount Asahidake it was amazing to just soak in the private onsen. It was July 2018 and for the summer temperature of low 20s it was still onsen friendly, specially coming from a mountain where it was around 10°. The room has aircon...More

Stayed one night at the Japanese-Western style room with dinner and breakfast included. Room is of reasonably good size and looks clean. The French style dinner is good except for the main course - stewed beef which tastes like boiled meat in the Chinese style...More
This hotel was right in Asahidake park, near the ropeway. I can't say enough about how beautiful the area is.
Our room was big and comfortable, and they had an area where you could pick up extra things like the kind of pillow you wanted....More
This really was the whole package, from room to service to food to the scenery and every little detail. This was my first time visiting Hokkaido and first time staying at an onsen hotel so didn't know what to expect. Everything there exceeded my expectations....More

If you are going to fly from Bangkok into Sapporo New Chitose airport, it is easy to take a direct train from the airport to Asahikawa and then a bus or a taxi to La Vista. Japan trains are modern, comfortable and on time. Buying a ticket on arrival at Chitose airport is easy. There is a direct train every hour to Asahikawa, and the trip duration is 2 hours 11 minutes. A good way to find out the train schedule is to use Google Maps, look for New Chitose Airport station and then the direction for Asahikawa station via train.
There is a bus service from Asahikawa train station and Asahikawa airport to Asahidake Onsen which stops very near La Vista. But there are only three buses scheduled daily. The hotel does not have a regular shuttle service, but it can organize a hotel car pick-up from either place. That is expensive though. What we did is take a local taxi from Asahikawa train station, for a set fare. The visitor centre in the train station has English speakers who helped us secure a taxi. We booked the same taxi for the return trip from Asahidake Onsen to Asahikawa train station.
I do not think that there is a regular bus service between Asahidake Onsen and Sounkyo Onsen. You will have to use a taxi for that, or buses via Asahikawa train station. La Vista will help you organize that, for sure.
Another good solution to move around the Daisetsuzan National Park area is to rent a car. Driving in Japan is easy and safe, and most road signs are written in both Japanese and English. But you need to have an international driving license in order to be allowed to rent a car and go on the roads. That should be obtained well in advance of you trip, from your country's authorities.
