We arrived at Choyo Resort Hotel in the evening after completing the day's tour of Biei, Shikisai Noka and Furano. Our hotel booking was organised by our Tour Operator, so this time round, we had a more modern Japanese style Tatami bedroom with a much more comfortable cushioned bed (unlike the thin mattresses used in a typical Tatami bedroom). The room decor is simple but neat with all essential amenities in the bathroom and electric thermo-pot for that cup of hot tea.
Dinner is buffet style with a very wide selection of Japanese food and western cuisine...the main highlight of the dinner was the popular Hokkaido crab. After dinner, it was time to get into the Onsen (Japanese hot spring spa) for a good warm soaking to relax the tired muscles from the day's walking.
As we have left our hotel room windows slightly open to let in some fresh air, we can hear in the quiet of the night the sound of rushing water and the slight smell of sulphur in the air; guessing there is a river and hot sulphur spring nearby.
What a wonderful sight that greet us at day break, when we looked outside from our hotel room window, the splendid Autumn view of the surrounding nearby area (red and golden flora and trees on the hill slopes) and the rushing stream just a stone throw away. View attached photo to appreciate this awesome view from our hotel room.
From the hotel, we continued our tour of the Sounkyo Gorge which was a short distance away at the foot of Mount Daisetsu-zan. The gorge has lots of waterfalls of which we viewed the magnificient Shooting Star Falls (Ryusei-no-taki Falls) and Milky Way Falls (Ginga-no-taki Falls) and the Obako and Kobako rock formations.
Overall, a delightful hotel to spend the night at Sounkyo valley.
