Fodor's Review

Dark wooden beams, shadowy corridors, and well-chosen antiques transform a modern canal-side building into a comfortable, old-fashioned Japanese inn—a rarity in Otaru. The traditionally clad staff bows low on the raised straw matting in the reception area, and the first-floor restaurant has seating with a canal view. The charm of the public areas continues into the newly-renovated lounge area where reading materials are available adjacent to the lobby. The eighth-floor Japanese bathroom has a one-person whiskey-barrel bath perfect for outdoor soaking. The hotel's breakfast includes up to 40 different options made by their chefs with ingredients from Hokkaido.
