The hotel in the forest
Sapporo Kita Hiroshima Classe Hotel is a resort hotel that is 16 minutes from Sapporo Station, 20 minutes from New Chitose Airport and right near Kita Hiroshima Station. There are free shuttle buses between the station and hotel.
It is a perfect place for those who want to see the sights of Sapporo but feel it is a waste to book a hotel just to sleep at.
The allure is the spacious rooms and the natural onsen. The view of being surrounded by forests and the far off mountains is breathtaking. If you wake up early it almost feels like you are in a sea of clouds with the mist rolling in. The scene from the large windows in the room is almost mystical.
Use it as a base for golf or a drive

With the Hokkaido Expressway close by it is convenient for a road trip in a rental car as well.
