Zaborin Ryokan


Rural Ryokan

A short journey from popular Sapporo or Niseko takes you to another world. A world in which you'll find yourself surrounded by nature, luxury and tradition alike at Zaborin – one of Hokkaido's most luxurious ryokan resorts.

Once known as a place for travelling samurai to rest and recuperate, ryokan are a type of Japanese inn now known for the traditional and authentic experiences they offer each guest.

To stay in one of Zaborin's secluded cabins is to burrow into the best of Japan's unspoilt landscape – looking out across peaceful meadows, Hanazono Forest and Mt. Yotei whilst nestled amongst the trees.

Whether it's uncovering ancient traditions, bathing in the minerals of natural spring onsen, unwinding in the serenity of nature, or tasting award-winning kita kaiseki cuisine, Zaborin offers guests the chance to relax in a contemporary luxury completely unique to Hanazono, Hokkaido.
