Hinanoza あかん鶴雅別荘 鄙の座（つるがべっそう ひなのざ）
A luxe getaway experience in Japan's far north
In eastern Hokkaido on the shores of Lake Akan, surrounded by old-growth forests, Akan Tsuruga Bessou Hinanoza is a place of luxury, comfort, and serenity. Each of the hotel's 25 luxuriously appointed suites has its own open-air bath, and is adorned with traditional Japanese-style designs—no two suites are alike.
Wood dominates, from the floors, joints, and interiors to the carvings inspired by indigenous Ainu culture. In addition to the in-room open-air baths, there are two communal baths featuring stone tubs on the upper floors of the hotel, all fed by the natural Lake Akan hot spring. You can soak away your aches while listening to the gentle waves lap on the lakeshore.
Dining at Hinanoza showcases the all-natural and seasonal ingredients of Hokkaido in unique, artistically arranged multicourse kaiseki dinners, served in exclusive private rooms reserved for each guest suite.
