We decided to visit Lake Akan a few days ago to enjoy a last bit of winter in Hokkaido. The timing was perfect as, on the night of arrival, we were treated to fireworks above the frozen lake.
The room on the 3rd floor faces the lake, and it was delightful as there was snow piled high up on the balcony just beyond the onsen bath, which was heated to a perfect 43 degrees. In minus 5 degree weather, the temperature was just right for a mid-night soak.
Bathroom amenities were adequate and towels were clean. The bathroom was a bit dim but one gets used to it. The shower area with wooden flooring added to the atmosphere.
Meals were great (provided one enjoys kaiseki) and the service was absolutely impeccable. Nothing was too much trouble and they were patient and very helpful, when I experienced some internet problems.
The public areas and the shop on the ground floor were delightful and very photogenic. We were sorry to leave after just 2 nights.
