住了三天，泡汤玩雪还是很开心的。日式料理也可口，店主的女儿会英语。后面还有滑雪场。只是离温泉街很远，并没有每天的接回酒店的bus，早上可以送去景点，需自己打车回酒店，温泉街回酒店taxi 2000日元。建议一天出酒店去海洋馆 熊牧场 地狱谷，一天泡酒店玩滑雪 这样会比较合理。
晚饭很好吃 交通不太方便但有shuttle bus 从温泉街回旅馆也有公交
事先通过邮件预定了shuttle bus。没想到是个大客车哈哈。我们一到酒店就下起了大雪，超级美。两个人一个下午就在酒店外面闲逛玩雪也蛮有趣的。我们那天住宿的时候人意外的很多，据说是住满了，而且几乎都是俺们国人。所以晚上泡汤就显得有些拥挤，还好我去的早，在外面露天池子泡了一会。很推荐露天池，特别是雪天，太美了。下着雪，周围也都是白雪盖着石头，赤着在里面泡汤就刚好。第二天早上九点会有shuttle bus送去温泉街或者JR车站，入住的时候需要确定。
交通的话除了它的免费接送车 自己就只能打车 不过依然很值 不用去温泉街跟那么多人挤
在山里很僻静 人少清静才是真正的享受 实物很丰盛 这个价格跟箱根比起来已经优惠太多啦
An interesting cultural experience
The biggest problem for us was that the hotel didn't really cater for kids. We travelled with a 1-year-old and a 3-year-old and where other hotels generally have things like a crib, high chairs and kids menus, this hotel had none of that. The breakfast was exactly the same both days and we were just given extra bowls for the kids in which we put things from our plates. I guess a lot of kids would have trouble stomaching a lot of the breakfast food on offer. The room we stayed in was very small. Just enough space for 3 futons on the floor and a small area with a table and 2 chairs. The kitchen and bathroom sink were in the same small space and the room had no shower at all. The toilet was clean and had a washlet. We had quite a lot of trouble sleeping due to the lack of a crib. the baby kept crawling or rolling off the futon and waking up and crying. I wouldn't recommend taking babies or young children here.
Sanseikan is located about 15 minutes drive away from the centre of the Noboribetsu hotel and onsen district. They may have a bus there (I'm not sure) but I'd definitely recommend going there by car. There are no shops or convenience stores in the area. The area was nice and quiet and there are a few hotels running in the area with a few others falling into disrepair. There's a park/ green space across the road from Sanseikan with a river, bridges and benches for sitting on, but not really enough space to kick a ball about. We went for a walk around that area and found some interesting relics from the Japan boom years. A huge empty swimming pool; cracked and long unused, piles of wood covered in moss that were clearly once buildings and other structures and houses with rooves caving in and walls peeling off. The mood of the area is nostalgic and eerie. The staff at Sanseikan were extremely friendly and helpful, but they do tend to hover around a lot which made us feel a bit uncomfortable. I think this is more just Japanese culture than anything else but we felt like they were waiting for us and we should hurry. The facilities are old but well kept and comfortable enough. The hotel has its own onsen which was the biggest highlight! The onsen has 2 showers, 2 indoor pools and a beautiful outdoor pool which is surrounded by trees and rocks. Of course, men and women's onsens are separate and they are public baths, not pools with swimwear. The included breakfast is big and contains all sorts of Japanese food such as rice, natto, salmon, various pickled vegetables, miso soup and a lot more. It's a good breakfast, but very Japanese taste.
Important to know, it closes at 9pm.
Extremely friendly ryokan, great food, nice onsen.
The owners were extremely hospitable and the food for breakfast and dinner was amazing. We had a really relaxing time at the onsen and were really well taken care of. We would highly recommend this place to others visiting the area.
Best place to relax
Clean n friendly staff
Beds (futons) were made up when we arrived. Expected it to be done during dinner so that before dinner, at least we have space to sit (other than on futons) and chit chat.
Very good dinner and breakfast spread! Staffs were so friendly and smiley making our stay totally pleasant. There is a nice little park just across the road. Very picturesque.
Very friendly staff. Awesome outdoor onsen (rotemburo)! Stay here instead of the high rise hotels in Noboribetsu...it's so cozy, clean & quiet!
