Hotel Kanronomori is an onsen (hot spring) hotel located away from the hustle and bustle of Hirafu, in the Konbu Hot Springs area. Tucked away below the Moiwa ski resort, this hotel offers the perfect spot to get away and have a truly relaxing holiday.
Set beside the Shakotan Otaru Quasi National Park, the natural setting is stunning in all seasons – in Autumn you can enjoy the changing colours of the surrounding trees, in Winter see it covered with glistening white snow, Spring brings new growth and in Summer you might catch glimpses of squirrels and possibly a Northern Fox darting through the lush, dark green forest.
The hotel offers plenty of great facilities for their guests, which means even though you’re a little off the beaten track, you’ve got everything you need right there. One of the best features of the hotel is ‘Mori no Tenku Buro’ – the hotel’s own onsen. There are two public baths, one for men and one for women, and for those who are a little unsure about public bathing they also have a private onsen which is available for hire in 50-minute blocks. Each of the public baths has an indoor and outdoor bath – the outdoor is the perfect spot to relax and unwind with beautiful views of the surrounding forest – as well as a sauna.
There’s also a fitness club which is free for hotel guests and available to the public on a per-visit basis, or you can sign up for a monthly membership. The gym facilities are basic but there’s enough to get a good workout. Cardio equipment includes treadmills, elliptical trainers and stationary bikes, and there’s a range of free and pin-loaded weights.
The hotel has two in-house restaurants, a gift shop, function facilities and free wi-fi internet in the lobby.
