Searching for a hotel to stay in the winter, accessibility is a key factor in the decision process because I don’t want to drag my luggages and walk on the snow for a long time. Of course the hotel room, facilities and price are also important. Tokachigawa Hot Spring Dai-ichi Hotel was my pick for the Tokachigawa trip.
It turned out to be a good choice! The bus stopped in front of the hotel. The hotel is conveniently located by Tokachi River, offering nice views from the guest rooms and many of the rest areas. The amenities and services are good. It offers free shuttle bus to Sairinka Festival at night during the event, free shuttle bus back to Obihiro JR Station, and even a bus to Lake Shikaribetsu the next morning!
