This is a recently renovated ryokan, it used to be called "Barden Kamifurano", but now under new management with a new name "shiyuirin". It sits in the middle of the Tokachi range. While all the snow has melted in Furano town, it was still snowing hard the night we arrived at the hotel. Surprisingly we were the only guests for the night, but the hotel still run its full staff to serve us! I didn't know what to expect, since this is a last minute reservation. Turns out all the furnishing was brand new in the rooms and in the public area. The only area they did not renovate was the changing area for the public onsen (it was functional, so it didn't matter). The chef did an amazing job, serving us a 6 course Japanese/Western fusion dinner, all made with fresh, local ingredients. The breakfast was similarly excellent (mostly Japanese-style dishes). We had the whole onsen to ourselves, it was a delight to enjoy the outside onsen while it was snowing outside! The only complaint I have is that the indoor onsen has a strange temperature gradient problem. There were pockets of cooler water which I did not experience in other onsens. A great steal given we only paid around 15000 yen per person for the night. All in all an excellent stay!
