Where Onsen Heaven meets Hell Valley,
Dai-ichi Takimotokan extends a warm Hokkaido welcome.

At Dai-ichi Takimotokan you step into the very special world of the onsen ryokan. A world of hospitality that extends a warm welcome, steeped in over 150 years of history. Where active volcanoes feed healing onsen waters, beautiful natural vistas signal the changing seasons, and refined Japanese cuisine is made from the freshest Hokkaido produce.

Nestled in the secluded valley of Noboribetsu-Onsen, an ‘onsen ryokan stay’ at Dai-ichi Takimotokan is at opportunity to experience a more tranquil and traditional side of Japan. While seemingly a world away, it is just 90 minutes from Chitose, Sapporo airport, and a gateway to the natural attractions of southern Hokkaido. Long loved by locals, who appreciate its family-friendly warmth, variety and value, we're sure you will feel the same way too.
