Bourou Noguchi Hakodate 望楼NOGUCHI函館（ぼうろうのぐち）
Hot spring lodging with magnificent night views
Drawing upon Hakodate's reputation as the first city in Japan to open up its port to foreign trade, Borou Noguchi Hakodate embraces a concept where spaces have distinct personalities, thus creating different atmospheres throughout the day. Night is when this contemporary lodging really shines with unobstructed views of the Hakodate townscape from the hotel's hot spring baths on the top floor.
The inn's waters flow from Yunokawa Onsen, one of Hokkaido's popular onsen villages. Parquetry floors, dark timber, leather couches and brass reading lights add to a sense of understated luxury. Kaiseki and French-style meals feature local and seasonal ingredients, such as seafood from the Tsugaru Strait. Five private dining spaces are available—sizes vary—while communal spaces include a library, billiards room, sauna and Japanese tearoom and garden.
