This is an excellent Japanese traditional style hot spring hotel. Dinner and breakfast are included. Dinner is traditional Japanese fine dinning with dinner time scheduled. Seafood was super fresh, rarely find in any other countries. Food was delicate and presented beautifully. One can tell the chefs have spent a lot of time and effort to cook the food. The menu is different from time to time, with different theme. Breakfast is buffet style. Hotel lobby and rooms are traditional Japanese style, spacious, super clean and quiet. Staff were very friendly, polite and professional. Though the lady of the dinning room can’t speak English, she was still professional to explain each food item. Hot spring was big with indoor and outdoor pools. Changing room is spacious with all necessary accessories. Free parking is available. A lot of people complain the traditional Japanese hot spring hotel is expensive, this is because they don’t understand the Japanese culture, or they refuse to understand, or they are simply naive. The hotel always include dinner. We paid around CAD500 for one night (2 people). The dinner cost at least over $100 while the breakfast cost at least $40 per person. Where can one find this - quality of service and food - elsewhere in the world? If one doesn’t want to pay for quality or looking for deals, this is not the type of hotel for the person. This will be an insult to the hotel. Otherwise, if one understands the Japanese culture or willing to pay for quality, this is the hotel the one should go for. A lot of their clients are Japanese. This hotel is located right in Jozenkei where one can spend some time to walk around to see the natures. This is a good place to see the fall color.

We took the Japanese room (superior) for the 3 of us and it was of a traditional Japanese style. It was also large and spacious. Slept on the futon which was surprisingly comfortable. The only issue was that the AC was weak. A fan would have been quite nice as it was a bit warm during summer. But we opened the windows and it was fine at night. The adjoining public onsen via the 4th floor bridge was great. We went there 2x a day. There were various pools of differing types - a large onsen, a hydrogen one, an outdoor one, a sauna and a flower onsen with tea coloured water. During the night it switches with the day one for each gender so each gender gets a feel of either onsen. However one really has to be naked except for a face towel to be placed in front for modesty. However the locals did not bother. After the 3-4th time, i did not bother too much. There is a lounge with free refreshing lime-flavoured water. There is also in the basement - a 150-year (?) old onsen which was free. This was not mentioned in any of the English written pamphlet but i saw it in the picture. As hotel guests the towels were free although you had to sign a receipt for it. Going down to the onsen, one had to pass the wooden tunnels which smelt so old, rustic and creaky floors. Then going into the onsen was a wooden and ancient looking structure. There were no showers or lotions or hairdryers unlike the public onsen. Just a rustic pool surrounded by boulders and open outdoor greenery with a wooden fence. My family were the only 3 guests there. We stayed for about 15 minutes to soak up the atmosphere. We went to the onsens 2x a day and even 3x on the first day. Surprisingly although refreshing, we did feel a bit tired after the onsen. They say 10 mins in the onsen is like 10 mins of running as your blood pressure and pulse rate rises. Dinner was an elaborate affair - we had 8 courses. We did not eat meat. They served us mostly vegetables and fish but we told them that we would like more seafood including crabs. The next day they gave us nearly all seafood except one vegetarian dish. Of course, language was a problem but obviously between the google translator and sign language they still understood what we were trying to say. The menu was fully in Japanese so we had no idea what it said so each course was a surprise. Need to put aside 1.5 hours for the 8 course dinner. Buffet breakfast was not as great as dinner - but i still enjoyed it especially the Japanese rice porridge with its condiments. It is purely traditional Japanese so there is no bread but There was Hokkaido milk and yoghurt. There were small signboards of the food in English but it was small and not so well printed out. This is the place to go to just relax and chill out. We had rented a car to sightsee but it was a bit of a rush going here and there and i wished i just spent fully 2 days to just go in and out the onsens and relaxing . Although the place was full - but i didn't really feel that except during dinner and breakfast when you could see the restaurant was full. The staff could speak English but not so well. Wifi was present but occasionally unstable. Will come back.

This ryokan just amazed me in terms of the attention they pay to detail. My family had very complex diet requirement and they got it right from check-in to check-out. Good job there. Some little niceties include free drinks such as hot coffee, tea , wine and fruit vinegar drinks at the bar next to reception. There's also a petting mini zoo at entrance where u can pet fluffy rabbits. Kaseiki dinner is awesome and tasty, but breakfast paled a bit in terms of quality and variety. (they didnt change menu at all) Room is typical traditional japanese style which is cosy but the shower is the major letdown. The shower cubicle is seriously small, like 0.5m x0.5m. You cant pick up soap without jutting your butt out. The door is rusty and difficult to close, water is also difficult to adjust. Either too hot or too cold. Again there's no official drive-in so you have to park on road side to unload luggage. Carpark is a short walking distance behind the hotel. No rooms in the hotel offer a good view tho. Mine faced a car park.

I stayed here for two nights during the Christmas holidays in 2018 with my husband and it was wonderful. The bath facilities, breakfast buffet, dinner and the room befit the price. The staff were kind and helpful even though we didn't speak each others' languages. The free shuttle service to and from Sapporo was helpful. The area is very quiet but there are convenient stores within the walking distance. We are more than willing to come back.

we stayed in this hotel/onsen while traveling in the Nakasendo trail. It was a lovely place with a Japanese onsen , very good Japanese breakfast. The room was very big with a private shower and toilet . Despite the size the place it was a warm feeling. There is a shuttle to the hotel so don't be bothered with the location.

This was the best accommodation we had over our 11 nights in Hokkaido. While some had one or two plus points such as spacious comfortable room, good dining experiences, unique onsen, friendly staffs, value for money, Nukumori-no-Yado Furukawa has almost all. The price for a night stay including 8 courses Japanese dinner and Japanese’s buffet breakfast was a bit steep but considered that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with all these plus points, it became truly a value for the money we paid for. The 8 courses dinner was really marvelous and sumptuous, with excitement continued to be felt when each course was served. The serving of each course were in fact big, so much so that we were concern that we didn't have any room for the last 3 courses after completing first 5. Nevertheless we still emptied all the courses as they were delicious. We appreciated the Japaneses buffer breakfast as well, although it was not as "surprising" as the dinner.

Somewhere in time for real !! Our family is an honest fan of Japanese onsen. Of more than a dozen onsen we visited, Nukumori no Yado Furukawa in Jozankei town is the best natural onsen ryokan. Its century old fame and tradition is well reserved by hospitable and energetic staff. Outdoor onsen pools are magnificent. The resort is cozy and classy with tradition crafts and decors. Tiny little details are well observed such as light soothing music at every steps of the way with a beautiful artistic ikebana flowers lightening those corners that may be overlooked without petals and scents. Amasake (fresh sweet rice wine) shimmering in a metal pot hanging over the wood charcoal is self served as a welcome drink with a choice of seasoned drink in a old cottage style lobby. The best of all is the traditional Japanese breakfast or Washoku with 35 tasty varieties to enjoy. For onsen and ryokan lovers, Nukumori offers the nostalgic feels for a good life on earth.

I had never been to a ryokan before but it was on my daughter's bucket list so we looked for a somewhere that could service a western sensibility while still giving an authentic traditional experience. There was a bus that left from a central location in Sapporo to take us to the venue. Their estimate of an hour transit time was about right. This place had everything. In terms of shared facilities there was a traditional low dining hall with tatami mat and a western style private room, a table with built in cooking facilities for shabushabu and hot pot, and several amazing themed rooms with beautiful furniture and self serve tea and coffee. The room was gorgeous, with a tatami floor, a meditation room looking out on the snow, and a private onsen (this was optional but not a lot more expensive). The futon were exceptionally comfortable and of generous size. The food we were given was exceptional- dinner had something like 40 elements of which my daughter and I thought 1 each was a bit weird. Same with breakfast, very elaborate, very Japanese, very good. Others seemed to have the option of doing a breakfast buffet which also looked smart. The onsen was separated by gender and had beautiful stone and wood motifs. The only negative about this place was that one of the motors had a slightly annoying tick in the background. Notes: None of the staff spoke very good English but we managed just the same. They were very friendly and patient with our faux pas. As with any onsen, the public one was aux natural. There was a family with young children Theresa well as games in one of the themed rooms so would be appropriate to bring young children there.

Had a great stay in room 721 of this ryokan. Onsen was great, very traditional with wooden frame. We also went to their 100 year old outdoor bath. Facility in our suite was at high standard and it has private bath. Meals are prepared well and they are delicious. Thank you for giving us such a preserved ambience experience.
