    Great location. We woke up early and took the 1st rope way up to the moutain. Very nice scenery and we managed to spot the melting ice on top of the noutain. Otherwise, there is not much things to explore ard. 1 night stay is good enough to explore the sight seeing spot ard. The hotel is vy old,onsen water is not clean.room is dusty too. Not value for money.

    Hot spring, Dinner and Tatami room

    The room is Japanese style, which is tatami. It's very interesting to sleep on tatami. The room is very big. Clean and tidy. However the bathroom is not very good. Better using the hot spring bathroom to take bath. The room has no internet connection so we have to use our ipad in the lobby, which is not very comfortable.

    Large room”

    Its located at the outer border of the town but not that far from bus station. The room is very large with one bath room and one rest room. The outdoor onsen on 5th floor and indoor onsen on 1st floor. Staff barely speak english, quite hard to communicate and ask for informations. There are tour groups here in the hotel so when it time for breakfast and dinner too much ppl in the hotel restaurant.

    Very enjoyable stay, large variety of food to choose from at both catered meals. The location is dramatic and very scenic. We saw deer at the front of the hotel. Staff were very helpful and two very proficient English speakers assisted with more complex enquiries.

    Location, staff, location

    Limited options in the area and managed to book Japanese style rooms which was great experience. Hotel is very outdated. Booking included half board (dinner and breakfast). For less adventurous westerners, dinner options rather limited. For breakfast saw same salad served for dinner. For the adventurous, lots of variety. Onsen was great, especially outdoor Onsen. No wifi in rooms, and wifi in lobby was not working on both days. Despite repeated enquiries, it was not resolved. No nearby restaurants.

    hot spring, food, room service

    The buffet dinner is superb. This hotel has one of the nicest and most natural hot spring I ever visited. The Japanese style room very comfortable with tea set, japanese bathing robe etc. Location of the hotel is very near to the famous waterfall and mount kurodake. The only drawback is u need to check out as early as 10am. Recommended for stay!

    Comfortable rooms, outdoor onsen, clean

    We overall enjoyed an excellent stay and highly recommend this hotel for a great onsen experience. However, a minor point of criticism is missing internet in the hotel rooms. WiFi internet (free of charge) was only available in the hotel lobby.

    Ourdoor onsen under snow

    Unexpected grat surprise for us. There were 2 hotels to choose from in Sounkyo. So we selected this hotel since it was larger than the other. Room rate included dinner and breakfast (did not appeared anywhere in our booking - just breakfast). The Japanese-styled room was spacious enough for 4 people. Dinner was buffet style and we enjoyed it tremendously. The most memorable thing about this hotel was its outdoor onsen under the snow -quite exotic - and we loved it very much. Just only one minor minus thing was its location, difficult to reach by your own. Anyway, hotel had transportation arrangement for guests from several JR station (either charged or free of charge, depending on routes) and it served us well.

    The hotel is not located at Asahikawa as promoted by Agoda. It is not even near Kamikawa. It is a winter resort with the famous snowy mountain and good Onsen. However, it is too far from any other places of interest. The dinner (included) was good though.

    Easy access from bus terminal

    My booking is overbooked so they took me to another hotel-Kanko hotel. They offer me for free drink for their mistake but finally, I got room upgraded by negotiating too. The staff is so polite and great. For Sounkaku grand hotel, at lobby, it is a bit old but offer free wifi. From outside, it seems like the hotel offers the great view of mountain. The hotel is just a few minute from bus terminal by walk.
