This onsen resort hotel is on a small hill overlooking the beautiful Lake Abashiri. The facility’s star hot spring is the “Hokuten Zabo no Yu”, which is fully equipped with an open-air bath and hot-stone sauna. The water is alkaline, colorless, and transparent, and is said to beautify your skin. While here, view the surrounding nature from season to season in the gorgeous outdoor rock-walled hot spring and relax in reclining chairs in the tatami lounge. Be sure to try the restaurant for its delicious and aesthetically pleasing offerings. The buffet uses local ingredients of Okhotsk, and serves French and Japanese Kaiseki cuisine (reservations required). Magnificent panoramic views are available from the tower guest rooms so don’t waste any time in booking these special accommodations.
