It’s an ultimate luxury.

Thank you very much for your help. The staff always touched me with a smile, my heart got it. The impression was so good that we had a mismatch at the planned accommodation destination of Noboribetsu Onsen two days later and we decided to change accommodation destination so quickly that we stayed at the same Furukawa's "Family Ocean Furu River" . This was also a very pleasant hotel. .

It was a very pleasant stay this time as well. Last time it was just before the breakfast rice was changed to the kettle boiled rice, so this time especially I asked for breakfast rice very much. Earlier from dinner as well as breakfast was highly evaluated, but still the kettle cooking is cool! Traditional rice was delicious, but it is a feeling that was further improved. However, in the past it received miso soup and rice at the end after receiving tray and towel, and in order to take side dishes, but since miso soup and rice are placed at the diet entrance of the side dish from the side dish kind, it is a bit inconvenient I felt. Also, people from the staff were guided to the seats according to the number of people before, but this time it was free without guide. I also saw it in other reviews, but there are also people who use four seats for two people if it is free too, so how about returning to the guidance of the staff? We will crowd at breakfast start, so at least for the first time or seeing the degree of congestion, we would like you to respond flexibly. I did not see the manager at the last minute whenever I was having dinner, so when I asked the dinner's staff, I was having a bad condition. I have 2 more bookings within the year, so I hope to see you next time.
