The location is great if you arrive into town later at night like us because it's located literally to the left hand side of the train station. Kakunodate is a small quaint township that is most popular during cherry blossom season. But as we visited in winter which is the low season, it's a nice way for us tourists to...

We stayed 2 nights, the room was comfortable with 2 lounges. While it faced the railway line we heard no noise. It was spotless, lovely sheets, everything was polished. The front desk staff were very helpful with all our inquiries, including helping with arrangements in the next town where we were due to visit. Breakfast was largely Japanese. The hotel...

As others have said, this hotel is located literally next to the train station! It could not be easier to find. The staff were friendly and were happy to hold our bags when we arrived before check in time. The room was really spacious by Japanese standards! Robes and amenities provided. Be aware there is not a lot of choice...

The hotel, own by JR (a big Japanese Railway system), is located right next to Ichinoseki train station, which is very very convenient. Only 15 min walk to sightseeing spots, through nice quaint old town. The room was clean and comfortable. There a restaurant on the first floor, which is very convenient when you are too tired to go out...

We stayed here for 2 nights during this coming winter and apart from its great location next to the station it is a very nice local hotel. Not much english is spoken but what they lack in english they make up for in enthusiasm and warmth. A 10 minute stroll into town will lead you to all the sights of...

Great location just beside the Kakunodate Station. There's a restaurant as well, and you get a free breakfast. The coin laundry machine came in handy. The Kakunodate samurai houses are about a ten minutes walk away. You can take a local train to visit some nearby spots such as Dakigaeri. I booked a room through the registration on the hotel's...

Kakunodate is said to be the Little Kyoto of Akita Prefecture, with its merchant halls and Samurai houses. So the Folkloro Hotel is a very convenient and reasonably priced hotel right next to the JR station. The service was very pleasant. I found the breakfast basic but satisfactory. I ate at the hotel's restaurant for each of the 3 nights...

Located just next to the station, this hotel is one comfortable homely place I've stayed with great pleasure. The staffs are very friendly, helpful, kind, you name it and their warm hospitality left me speechless. Breakfast is great too; not wide-spread like those modern hotel's buffet breakfast but I like it. Home-cooked food kind of feeling. The room is spacious,...

We stayed here after a long day of shinkansen commute from Osaka. Awesome location next to JR and rooms (just) fitted my wife, me and 2 young kids. Don't worry about the train noise. All trains stop here so there are hardly any noise. Awesome breakfast too. Recommended
