The shuttle was waiting at the airport for our flight from Sapporo Okadama airport. Ten minutes later, we were there and checked- in. Room 403 is a very large twin room with coffee table, chairs, a large desk and credenza, many drawers, a real closet and separate toilet from the sink / tub / shower rooms. There were two large windows with sliding shoji screens; both windows opened wide for the fresh Rishiri air. The windows had a great view of the harbor, ferry terminal and looming Mt. Rishiri, locally referred to as Rishirifuji. The room styling was not traditional and not modern, sort of in between – but it was in great condition and everything was very clean. It had a nice, comfortable feel about it and was a really pleasant space in which to chat / read a book / relax. The bedding was very comfortable and it was quiet in the area. The bathroom had good amenities, and the shower and tub were separated so you could soap up and scrub while the tub was filling. The shower water control was via a good temperature- control armature. The onsen was small but good. Breakfast was a traditional Japanese meal set, and our room number was on the table. It was excellent, and the breakfast staff were very helpful and pleasant, too. Just up the road is an excellent Izakaya, Arikawa-an, whose owner studied under Chef Nobu In Mykonos. It all sounds improbable for tiny Rishiri but it worked for us! The big hill with an historic burial ground is behind the hotel. The hike up is not difficult and yields a nice view of the town, the harbor and of course Mt. Rishiri. The shuttle took us back to the airport as arranged. When I return to Rishiri, I will certainly stay there again.
