Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at North Country Inn for two weeks as part of a Whiteroom tour. The rooms were huge by Japanese standard and the futon beds were just as big (super king?). The beds are a little hard by western standards but after a day of skiing I still managed to get good night sleeps.

Rooms only have green tea so if you want anything else you’ll have to purchase in Japan or bring your own.

There is a tv but it only has Japanese channels.

The restaurant serves a fantastic buffet breakfast with muesli, toast, yogurt options as well as salads, curries, bacon, eggs, spaghetti bol, soups, potato wedges and breads etc.

The staff that run this place are what make it. Their English is pretty limited but with google translate and hand gestures you can get by. Everyone is so helpful and always has a smile and willing to help where they can.

There is a small lounge where you can sit with others but the bar doesn’t open until 6pm when the restaurant opens. There is a vending machine that sells beer and strong zero (alcoholic lemonade?) which you can drink in your room.

There is a good drying room too.

The location is about a 20minute walk to Furano ski field and there is a snow shuttle. There is a hotel restaurant that serves basic Japanese cuisine and if you want to venture further afield there are more restaurants about 30min walk away. Bear in mind you will be walking in the dark, in snowy conditions along a main road so you might just want to go by taxi.

In summary we had a fantastic stay and thoroughly recommend staying with them.

Stayed for 2 nights on December 26&27. Mid range hotel a bit dated and no elevator, will be problematic if you got big heavy luggage, but for us it was ok. We got the room w/ two twin bed and tatami area that can sleep 2-4person, big for us 2 adults w/ 2 children. It was -12 degrees outside but the heater worked well and kept us warm. Bathroom a bit small but we use the onsen. The included dinner and breakfast were good. Big free parking in front of the hotel. Front desk service was friendly and efficient and provided needed information regarding skiing lessons for children and places to visit etc.

Stayed with a ski group. Good proximity to both sides of the ski resort. Staff is very helpful and friendly, but with limited English skills. The free onsen is nice, with both in and outdoor pools, but the outdoor one is very (1-ish person) small. Otherwise, the place is being neglected. My room had a hole in the wall, missing art and no chair to sit in (just a stool). There is a matted area with a low table, and thin cushions to sit on, but this doesn’t suit old western bones. Furniture in the common areas is looking dingy and carpets are worn and dirty. The underside of the eve outside my window had fallen apart, exposing metal framing. I think this could be a nice place, but it hasn’t been kept up well.

We stayed for a week here, and the staff were wonderful, they were always more than happy to help, and were great at speaking English. The breakfast included was amazing each morning and the dinners here also were great after a day on the slopes when you don’t want to venture any further. A shuttle runs from the accomodation to the ski field countless times a day. You can’t go wrong booking this place, would highly recommended.

This is the second time I have stayed at the North Country Inn at Furano due to being on a White Rooms Ski Tour. I cam back to Japan for the skiing and being on the guided tour is great but the accommodation at the North County Inn is not great, from my perspective. There are two levels and the rooms on the ground floor are okay in that they have more space. The rooms upstairs are a nightmare. The beds are in a loft and the stairs/ladder to get into the loft area is downright dangerous. If you need to get up to go to the toilet during the night and do not want to disturb others then you are literally taking you life in your own hands. The stairs/ladder has no hand rail and is about 60 degree angle. There is no way it would be legal in Australia and many other countries. I went to turn on the light for the stairs and it did not work. I then went to plug in my phone charger and the socket was literally hanging out of the wall, which also would not pass any form of safety inspection. The shower/toilet cubicle is tiny with shower in the Onsen area being a better option.
As for the food the breakfast is fairly standard for westerners but the dinners are of a very very poor quality for Japan. This is my fourth trip to Japan so I have eaten at a large variety of places and the food at the North Country Inn is probably the worst I have had. Even food from some of the convenience stores has been better.
The onsen at the hotel is very small and the wi-fi is non-existent in the hotel rooms. To use the wi-fi you need to use a very small lounge area which can be quite crowded so if you want some privacy for a face time conversation then forget it. The bar area upstairs also has wi-fi but can only be accessed after 4 pm.
The staff are very helpful and will help you book a restaurant and have reasonably good english so no complaints there.
If I decide to do another White Room Tour then I will definitely stay elsewhere.

I have been to Japan countless times. I cannot recall a poor experience before UNTIL this time. That speaks a lot for this Inn. First of all, this place do not have an elevator. Heaven forbid if they put u at the 3rd floor and you were not travelling light or with children or elderlies. Unfortunately we were put at level 3 due to the high season we could not switch to a lower floor. To compound the problem, they do not even volunteer to assist in our luggage. We have to specifically insist. That was on checking in. Upon checking out at 9am, we requested for assistance with our bags, we were told by the lady receptionist that she was the only person available. No porter service, no guys. This I thought was rather ridiculous considering in any decent hotel common sense dictates that morning check-outs were among the busiest time of the day for movement of people and luggage.

Back to our saga during check in. We arrived at 7pm. It was raining heavily. We were offer ZERO assistance with our disembarking. Nevermind the bags, none of the staff even bothered to hold an umbrella for us while we disembark and unload our bags. We had to ask for umbrellas, we had to hold it ourselves. The front desk staff just stood there. We were incredulous at this level of callous service in Japan.

Lets move on to the facilities. The onsen was tiny hole in the wall with a pool that resembles more a private family than that of a public onsen. Overall the place was quite run down. And we had the feeling, there was a fair bit of corners being cut to save cost.

The food was at best average. Again unusual in Japan, where even in the smallest of inns and in the most remote of places, good food tend to be the norm then exception.

One of my travelling mate is Japanese. And he was totally embarrassed and shocked at the level of poor service and facilities. We all swore, never again to this place. Please stay away!

Stayed at North Country Inn while on a Whiteroom Tour. The only downside of the hotel is its location. It's located between Kitanomine and the New Price Hotel and in most cases a bit too far to walk to either. Luckily for skiing the hotel has a shuttle bus service and a taxi can take you to cafes and restaurants in Kitanomine for less than 1,000 yen. Our room was large by Japanese standards and the hotel service was always friendly and helpful. The manager has also made a great effort to cater for westerners without spoiling the Japanese experience. (you don't have to take your shoes off in reception!) breakfast was always good with a little Japanese food and a traditional western breakfast also. Just be sure the location suits you. Wifi in rooms was always very good.

Spacious 3 beds room. Helpful and nice crew, both front desk & dining room. Don't forget to buy discount lift ticket here.
The Onsen is a bit small but the view is fine and peaceful.
No kiosk and shop at all, none even at the surrounding. Better to have a car drive in.
