Our hotel. Two stars. Cheapest in town at nearly 0/night. But a nice one. With free, and pretty good, wi-fi.

The thing about rider houses is that they are fucking hard to find. Aside from Japanese signage, they are always always hidden off some side road somewhere. This was the 4th one I set out to find that night. It was near the base of the mountain off in the woods in a wonderful spot really. Quiet nature, Hokkaido mosquitoes, and hot water!
¥1000/night = cheaper than dinner.
