The hot spring here was very nice with a hillside view. There were not many quests when we stayed so we had a nice quiet, relaxing time in hot spring. The food was generally good, with locally grown products. But I wish they served a little bit more meat for what we were paying for. The hotel is a bit out of the way and we saw foxes on the way.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view cost more but you get the same view from the bath so it is probably not worth paying more.

The hotel is situation at way up the mountain near Furano. The staff are nice and friendly. Dinner is average as compared to other Onsen hotel. Onsen is quite small. The room and facilities are all clean an tidy - usual Japanese standard.

Most guests were from Japan, with few foreigners.

There were many hikers staying in the hotel during our Sept stay.

There was an observation area ( 5-10 min drive ) closed-by offering an excellent view of the sunset. The hotel is quite remote, we also bumped into a deer on our way down the hill the next morning.

The hotel is far away from the city, and made it an excellent location for some night photos. The attached pics were took just outside the hotel at night.

If you want to enjoy a quiet evening glazing at the night sky in Hokiaddo, this is the place to stay!

Kamihorosou sits on a hill a short distance away from Furano and a bit further from Biei. Staff is fantastic, very warm hospitality right from the moment i wrote to enquire about reserving a room. The staff don't speak fluent English but it didn't deter them from going out of their way to understand our needs and help us find our way around.

They have a very nice onsen. there is one that faces the mountains which makes the soak all the more relaxing.

Each room comes with an attached toilet but not shower. the only shower facilities is in the onsen area.

Food is awesome and we were treated to some really nice chawanmushi and rock melon.

loved every moment of it.

I pay a visit to furano and biei in July. Kamihoroso seems a good choice for me, due to the fact that it is near to both furano and biei, and most importantly, because of its affordable price.

The hotel is full on the day I stayed, the services and the environment of the hotel is fair. For the meal, it is not excellent but acceptable. It seems like a set meal, rather than the traditional japanese style Cuisine. Considering the money I have paid, I think it is acceptable.

Stayed: July 2015

Kamihoroso is located around 1000+ m above sea level. It can be reached via a pleasant mountain road, 30-40mins from the flower farms in Furano/Biei surrounds.
Given its elevation, it is considerable cooler here. It is in the midst of a pleasant forest. And you get a GREAT view of the valley below especially from the onsen, dining room and main lobby. On a good day, the sunset is spectacular from here.

This is an old establishment. But don't let its age fool you. It is immaculately maintained. In fact, the aged feel of this place adds to its charms and sense of history. I find this place exudes understated elegance horned from years of proud service.
Everything is spick and span. The onsen is large and completely built and lined with old cedars wood. This is not common any more in Japan. You only get to experience this in the more traditional establishments in the countryside. This was a pleasant treat for us.

The rooms were all Japanese style. But large enough with plentiful of room for futons and a sitting area. Dining was great. Excellent seasonal food for both dinner and breakfast. In terms of service level, it was professional, efficient yet discrete; the type we come to expect in top establishments in Japan.

One other thing. While it is located close enough to all the flowers and patchwork attractions (30-40min drive), it held another attractions. Just 10 min drive further into the hillside is an open area for unimpeded view of a great sunset; some nice hiking trails and a forested clearing, where for the wildlife shutterbugs; a great place to photoshoot some cute northern pikas and chipmunks. We also saw a few golden foxes and deer while driving along the mountain road to and fro our hotel. That was another pleasant unexpected treat.

The only catch about this place is that you need your own transport. But if you have, this is a great place to stay while visiting the Furano/Kamifurano/Biei area.

Room Tip: request for a room with a view over the valley below.
