It is hard to put into words just how amazing an experience Ginkon-yu really was! On a quest to find the perfect hitou ryokan, my girlfriend and I decided to stay two nights during our trip to Hokkaido for the Sapporo snow festival. After seeing the sights and exploring the cities Sapporo and Asahikawa, we were looking to spend our...

“All of the rooms are fine, but there are a few rooms that can provide a view of a small stream that snakes its way around the ryokan. Additionally, note that the cheaper rooms do not have an in-room bathroom.

Save yourself some cash and go with the economical option...you will not be disappointed.”
