Lake Akan Tsuruga Wings is a stylish ryokan on the banks of Lake Akan in Hokkaido. This contemporary Japanese inn offers an insight into traditional culture, with its own onsen, local cuisine, karaoke facilities, and arts and crafts from the Ainu people.
Choose between Japanese-style and Western-style rooms, featuring futon bedding or twin beds on tatami mats. The simple rooms have private en suites and large windows overlooking the lake or town.
There’s a choice of dining options: a buffet-style restaurant that serves Japanese and international cuisine, or a Japanese-style kaiseki restaurant serving multi-course dinners.
Spend your days hiking in the national park, fishing or boating on the lake, skiing in the mountains, or enjoying local culture and walking tours. Back at the ryokan, round off your day with a soak in the onsen (if it’s full you can use the larger facilities of the neighbouring hotel), unwind in the sauna, or discover local arts in the lobby gallery.
