We stayed at Hakkoda in January this year for 3 nights. We travelled from tokyo on the new hayabusa train to aomori. We opted to take a taxi from the station to the hotel as we were traveling with a toddler and not quite sure if the bus were running, as it was snowing heavily. It was quite a long way to get to the hotel as it was situated in the mountains. We were greeted by Ms Keiko on arrival and she has been very helpful throughout our stay.
The hotel is a wooden hotel and it gives you a homely feel. It is well heated, even though temperature outside was -10 at that time.
We spend most of the days in doors, as the weather was not that good when we arrived. The food at the hotel was fantastic, and it's best to get the full board meal included. The onsen in the hotel is lovely, and has nice view of the snowy mountain outside. The hotel also has a shuttle service to send you to another onsen nearby. You can wear the yukata when dining in the Japanese restaurant located next to the onsen.
Even if you don't ski, this place is the ideal place to relax and unwind. We would definitely return to Hakkoda again. The hospitality is great, and it makes you feel at home.
We told our friend of the place,and they came to Hakkoda the week later! They also did fell in love with the place.
