After getting caught in a real downpour at the top of the ropeway, I really appreciated the onsen. The gentlemen at the front desk, who seems to be there 16 hours a day, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. For a buffet, which I tend not to like, this one was pretty good. There are not a lot of options in Asahidake, but you can be very happy here.
Thank you very much for using Asahidake Onsen Hotel Bear Monte. I heard that you were caught in the rain, and I think your body was cold and it was hard. It would be great if you could soak in the hot springs and heal yourself slowly. From Hokkaido's local cuisine to authentic desserts, each item is handmade with care, so we are very honored that you are satisfied with your meal. Asahidake offers magnificent scenery created by the nature of each season. Please come to Asahidake again for a relaxing time to rest your mind and body. We'll be waiting for your visit sincerely.

This little spa town is one of the few access points for the national park, and probably with the best day hike. If you want to stay locally, this hotel is perfectly located (beware of onsen hotels near Hagoromo falls - it's been partially abandoned in a post-apocalyptic way). The stylish and comfortable rooms are enormous, and it has a beautiful second floor library/sitting area for weather watching. The actual onsen is a bit average, as is the food (but there are no other dining options). Western breakfast was weak, although dinner choices were broadly fine. In short, it's not the best onsen luxury experience ever, but very practical as a base for the park.
