A comfortable stay with amazing views

Review of Kamihoroso
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 10 Oct 2018
Stayed here for one night. The location is excellent. It's located near the woods and set high up in the mountains, but still easily accessible by car, just off the main road that passes through Mt. Tokachidake. It seems like they offer a shuttle bus service to/from the nearest train station as well.

The woods are beautiful. The views from the onsen is just gorgeous. It's positioned overlooking views of the surrounding area. Since the outdoor onsen is right by the woods, there will be quite a bit of flying bugs. We saw a deer meander through some bushes behind the parking lot. According to some posters in the hotel, you can see hawks and foxes too.

The hotel itself is certainly not a luxury ryokan. It's more like a mid-tier establishment. The rooms and facilities are worn, but clean and comfortable nonetheless. There's no air conditioning, but there's a fan in the room.

The service is very attentive, but since this is not a luxury ryokan, most things are self-service. However, if you needed help, for example - we needed very large yukatas, the staff is more than happy to help.

The guests take their meals in the dining hall. The dinner, which was included in our room rate, was not luxurious, but filling, hearty, and delicious. It was a set meal that included appetizers and a small hot pot, combined with a self-service buffet of pickled vegetables, different types of rice, and soups. Breakfast, which was also included in our room rate, was a a mix of Japanese and Western style buffet.

The views are really why most guests come. However, the hotel itself is very comfortable and the food, while not fancy, still very enjoyable. We were there with a big group of elderly travelers, but still found the place to be quite tranquil.

    Reviewed 11 August 2018 via mobile

    Stayed at this quiet ryokan for 2 nights from 10 to 12 July 2018. The room was very clean. Although there wasn't any Aircon but it was cool in the night when the windows were opened. The temperature was cooler in higher altitude.
    We had Teppanyaki for dinner on our first night & shabu shabu the next night. We enjoyed the dinner very much. There wasn't a very wide range for breakfast but good enough to get you started for the day.
    The resort has an onsen that has a stunning view especially during sunset. The onsen is segregated by gender.
    The drive up to the resort was relatively easy as there weren't many cars. During the drive up to the resort we saw a fox along the way. We will stay at this resort again if we visit Kamifurano.

    Reviewed 12 September 2017 via mobile

    After reading the good reviews I decided to stay there. The remote location deep in the mountain was beautiful. So was the hot spring. However every thing else was average at best. Food was uninspiringly boring, the facility old and depressing like an institution, service was business-like, the big septic tank in the middle of the back yard outside of window that offered a beautiful view of mountains and valleys. With the price I paid, almost 19000 yen for a person, I expected a better facility. And, I don't trust any hotel with the toilet paper holder covered with a gramma's lacy needlework and the hallway with icy white fluorescent lights.

    The hot spring here was very nice with a hillside view. There were not many quests when we stayed so we had a nice quiet, relaxing time in hot spring. The food was generally good, with locally grown products. But I wish they served a little bit more meat for what we were paying for. The hotel is a bit out of the way and we saw foxes on the way.

    Room tip: Rooms with a view cost more but you get the same view from the bath so it is probably not worth paying more.

    The hotel is situation at way up the mountain near Furano. The staff are nice and friendly. Dinner is average as compared to other Onsen hotel. Onsen is quite small. The room and facilities are all clean an tidy - usual Japanese standard.

    Most guests were from Japan, with few foreigners.

    There were many hikers staying in the hotel during our Sept stay.

    There was an observation area ( 5-10 min drive ) closed-by offering an excellent view of the sunset. The hotel is quite remote, we also bumped into a deer on our way down the hill the next morning.

    The hotel is far away from the city, and made it an excellent location for some night photos. The attached pics were took just outside the hotel at night.

    If you want to enjoy a quiet evening glazing at the night sky in Hokiaddo, this is the place to stay!

    Kamihorosou sits on a hill a short distance away from Furano and a bit further from Biei. Staff is fantastic, very warm hospitality right from the moment i wrote to enquire about reserving a room. The staff don't speak fluent English but it didn't deter them from going out of their way to understand our needs and help us find our way around.

    They have a very nice onsen. there is one that faces the mountains which makes the soak all the more relaxing.

    Each room comes with an attached toilet but not shower. the only shower facilities is in the onsen area.

    Food is awesome and we were treated to some really nice chawanmushi and rock melon.

    loved every moment of it.
