“Just OK”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The Ressha House is an OK spot just below the Furano ski hill. We based here for several nights skiing Furano, Asahidake and Tomamu. The chain-smoking owner is nice enough though he will charge you for every single thing you touch. Our room was an odd affair, with barely enough square footage to contain the lumpy double bed and the coin-operated tube TV, but with a ceiling a full two stories high. Clearly it was intended to have a loft like some of the other rooms but this was never finished.

The bath was a typical deep Japanese soaker with plenty of hot water. There was a fridge outside in the hall from which a few treats were stolen. Towels were available, for rent a 1Y? Overall, it was cheap and you got what you paid for. I have stayed in Furano before and there are definitely better pensiones in the area.

Reviewed 20 July 2013 via mobile

Having stayed at a classy hotel the night before, we had a surprise when we checked into pension. We booked the room with bathroom but shared toilet. Room was very basic like a typical bed & breakfast inn in Japan. Comforter looked old but relatively clean. We experienced bugs/flies during the night even though the windows had a net. As the room had no air conditioning we could not close the windows. TV didn't work too.

Reviewed 19 July 2013

Ressha House is located cozy & beautiful Kitanomine area with couple of minutes walk away number of delicious restaurants & convenient store. It takes abt 10mins by Lavender bus + foot from JR Furano station.The pension is homely, clean and relaxing and served simple but great breakfast in a very homely dining place.
The owner speaks good English , helpful & ready to offer assistance to the guests- he help us to book call cab for early departure to JR station & recommend a delicious BBQ lamb just within 5mins walks from the pension. Another highlight is Restaurant Barbarian with just 3mins away that served salad from homegrown pair with 7 types of dressing make by the owner along side with delicious western food
Their shared bathroom may be a set back for some guests that prefer privacy & the owner who is a heavy smoker has somehow make the living hall smell of cigarette.
We will defiantly stay here again in our next visit to Furano.

Room Tip: Ask for conner room which is quieter

Generally, the cleanliness and location is good for the price we pay we can't complain. However, the hospitality we received from the owner is fairly cold and almost zero interaction. The owner shouldn't smoke in the pension that makes the entire pension smell of cigarette.
