Welcome to our hostel

The Youth Guest House is set in a wilderness overlooking the primeval Lake Kussharo, and provides an ideal base for travelling and outdoor activities for families, groups and individuals alike. The many attractions of the YGH include its unique and stunning wooden structure which gives guests both privacy and a convivial environment, in which guests have the opportunity to interact over refreshments provided by the hostel. Affordably priced and authentic home cooked Japanese meals are available at the YGH, as are a variety of 'learn by doing' programmes and open-air hot springs in the vicinity of the lake, all of which give the guests a delightful Japanese experience. Centrally situated in the North Eastern part of Hokkaido, the YGH offers a convenient location for those making a day trip to the Lake Mashu, Shiretoko, Kushiro Marsh or Akan. If you use a train or bus, please let us know your arrival time at Mashu station the day before. We will pick you up from the station or bus stop by car. If you would like to have breakfast or dinner, please let us know the day before., Wi-Fi now available in our hostel.

 屈斜路原野は阿寒国立公園の中でも一番大きな湖、 屈斜路湖の周辺に広がる地域の名前です。美しい水と原生林に囲まれた、国内でも手つかずの自然の残る数少ないところ。

Although they promised to pick me up from the station, nobody was there when i arrived. I waited for more than an hour, but nobody showed up. In total i had to wait three hours until the next train to try to find other accomodation in the next big town. When i e-mailed them about it the next day, they never replied...

A lovely rural retreat. Kussharo-Genya YGH is a great place for a quiet escape in country Hokkaido. The food is great. Don't miss the early morning trip to watch the sunrise over the lake. Looking done on the sea of clouds below is sublime.

工作人員非常親切, 除了離車站遠一些, 沒什麼缺點, 離屈斜路湖很近, 參加獨木舟行程或到和琴半島散步都是很好的體驗, 如果是自駕可以去的地方選擇更多

Everything is ok. but I have a question. I paid a 5% tax. Does the price on the website not include the tax?

This hostel does not provide shared cooking facilities, since they have in-house chef.
