Small hotel with a very quiet environment, nice to take a quiet holiday there. Staffs are very polite and friendly. Public Onsen is not too big actually, but nice to try 👍

Remarkable boutique hotel
Outstanding architectural and interior design evident in the change of store houses to a remarkably well operated boutique hotel. The environment, service and food received at Kuramure is definitely worth its room rate.

Fantastic hotel with amazing service
This has to be the best hotel I've stayed in in recent memory. Mainly because it was unlike any other 4 or 5 star hotel I've visited. We had a great view of the snow from our window and slept like babies.

Relaxing Japanese style resort
Its located a few train stops or around a 30 min drive away from Sapporo via the highway but its in its own world. The resort facilities are modern, great service all round Onsen was of excellent quality and all meals (which are included in the price) are a great sample of traditional Japanese meals. Recommended as a great breather when travelling to Hokkaio and Sapporo in particular.
