Hokkaido Japan Travel Guide Hotels


If you are looking for international hotel chains in Hokkaido, you will be disappointed. Other than Sapporo, which has the Sheraton, and Otaru, which has the Hilton, you will not find bigger hotels in Hokkaido, Japan.

However, there are numerous Japanese hotels in all the cities and towns located in Hokkaido. By international standards, these hotels have small rooms. But, there is no dearth of hotels. If you visit Hokkaido and want to stay in hotel, you should try staying in the onsen (spa) hotels. The experience will be worthwhile.

Most onsen hotels in Hokkaido offer both western as well as Japanese room. Western rooms are a lot cheaper but much smaller. However, if you are looking for the typical Japanese experience try staying in the more expensive Japanese styled rooms.

Room rates for Japanese-style rooms are quoted typically on a per person basis on the assumption that 4 people would be occupying it. For twin sharing room, you will have to pay a premium in addition to the quoted room rate.

Most onsen hotels include breakfast and dinner and it is part of the room rate. When you are booking your room, you will have to choose the menu category and the room rate will be dependent on the sort of menu you have selected. You can either request for food to be served in your room or you can go down to the restaurant. There are some hotels, though, who charge a premium for food to be served in rooms. Typically a Japanese hotel in Hokkaido will charge JPY10,000 per person and this is usually more expensive when compared to staying in a western-style hotel. The fact that breakfast and dinner is included in the room tariff, makes the stay more reasonable.

The other type of hotel accommodation that you can get in Hokkaido is Minshuku and Pension. Usually minshuku costs JPY6,000 per person per night and includes breakfast and dinner. Pensions are usually western-style minshuku hotels and you have to share the bath and toilet with other hotel guests. These hotels are quite similar to the B&B present in the UK. Pensions are very popular in the cities of Furano and Biei.
