Countless generations ago the Okhotsk people appeared on the shores of the north to live off the fertile lands of Hokkaido, but this culture disappeared suddenly under mysterious circumstances. Sitting perched atop a beautiful hill overlooking Lake Abashiri, HOKUTEN NO OKA Lake Abashiri Tsuruga Resort represents a new resort concept that showcases a soothing design ambience inspired by the history and culture of the northern peoples, fostering romanticism for a bygone era. Guests are first welcomed by the warmly appointed entrance lobby, designed after a traditional pit house in which the mysterious Okhotsk people once lived countless generations ago. The hotel’s interior is accented throughout with artwork, carvings, and decorations that pay homage to Okhotsk culture. Hotel staff also serve guests while dressed in garments inspired by traditional Uilta dress.
Unwind from your travels in the outdoor hot spring bath or hot stone sauna, followed by an amazing fine dining experience in one of the hotel’s restaurants. Dining choices include a buffet-style restaurant that serves a kaleidoscope of flavors and meticulously prepared dishes and a French restaurant where meals can be perfectly paired with a wine from wine celler stocked 2,000 bottles. Both options showcase the local seasonal food delights the sea and land of the Okhotsk area have to offer. Guests also have the option of reserving a traditional Japanese cuisine “KAISEKI” dinner, which provides the opportunity to indulge in the wealth of finest local seasonal ingredients prepared using time honored methods.
Guest Rooms feature tasteful interior designs that highlight the local Okhotsk culture. Experience the ultimate in luxury in the Ko no Za wing where each guest suite features its private open-air bath.
