GREAT experience. Good spa good meal
Outdoor public bath with great view, spacious double floor room, high class fine Japanese cuisine
The heating was a little too warm for us and couldn’t find adjustment, however opening window a bit helped.
Lovely onsen hotel
Onsen robes horrid acrylic material. Food was under whelming which was disappointing.
If your booking Jogakura for the winter your there for one reason, the Hakkoda powder and boy did it deliver in that department. During my trip it snowed 1m per day! 2+ Meters (6 ft+) in 3 nights I was there ! Although the hotel is about 3 miles away from the Hakkoda ropeway, If you coordinate with them they will accomodate you they have a few vans that can do pickup if you call them. They also have guided tours of Hakkoda mountain which I think is a must since Hakkoda is not your typical ski resort. (Its a Back country Pow paradise!) Some of the guests are regulars and although their english is not so great they love to share their stories if you talk to them. One of the regular guests has been skiing hakkoda for 30 years and he stays in Jogakura for 3 months over the winter. (the dude is in his 70 to 80s but still skiing) I wish some day I could get some pow legs like that! They got a hotspring to sooth your muscles after a hard day in the pow and the lodging includes breakfast and dinner. (typical Ryokan style)
Not much to complain about. If you like skiing back country Pow, this is the place for you! I think Hotel Jogakura does a better job at catering to the Pow crowd. (I've stayed in Hakkoda Hotel which is walking distance to the ropeway and I prefer Hotel Jogakura because of their guided tours, the regulars that are there every year, and the nicer Hotspring / Facilities.)
It was once in a lifetime experience. Never forget the snow and their hospitality.
With a stay at Hotel Jogakura in Aomori, you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Hakkoda and Sukayu Onsen. Featured amenities include luggage storage and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
