Jimmy-san, the host was someone who will brighten up your day. His warmth and jovial character was the plus point during the stay. The pension was basic but complete, the rooms were big as compared to hotels. The breakfast was personally made by Jimmy and his wife.

We had a wonderful stay with Jimmy-san and his family in their lovely pension. The pension is tastefully furnished - eg hand crafted wooden tables and cast iron stove. Our room was Japanese style - large with a lovely view. Breakfast was very tasty and plentiful as was the one magnificent dinner we had on our final night. Jimmy-san has...

Where do I start? We arrived at Furano train station and our host (please call me Jimmy) of the Pension is waiting for us in a minibus. We arrive at the Pension, are introduced to Jimmy's wife (the Boss) and after a tour of all facilities sit down for a fantastic Yen 1,500 Japanese 5 course dinner. Jimmy speaks perfect...

This pension is located in a convenient area of Furano with easy access to the various tourist spots via car. What makes this place stand out is the warm hospitality of the host Jimmy-san. He makes the effort to learn everyone's names upon arrival and tried to converse with us in our native language! The place was spotlessly clean -...

The Pension Ashitaya is located on the hill not so far from Furano town, backside of a vineyard, the host/owner Jimmy and his family are very nice and warm, he also speaks English very well. The place is very clean and comfortable. The foods they serve are very delicious and high quality.

Jimmy san, the owner of the guesthouse, speaks impeccable English and has a great sense of humour. Although the guesthouse is not near the Furano Station, Jimmy san will send you to and fro or wherever in the vicinity which you wish to go. Hence, no worries for those who do not have their own transport. The room is big...

Stayed here for 2 nights between 31 Jul - 2 Aug 2014. The pension is located quite far from the JR station, but wasn't a problem to reach as we drove there. It's very quaint and cosy as it only has 5 rooms. The room size was quite large. While the bathrooms are communal, they are kept extremely clean and...

Jimmy-san is such a good and caring host of the pension. We initially plan to stay only for two nights but with the fresh home-made bread and breakfast in the morning echoing with the nice sunny weather, coinciding with the tempting dinner all cooked by Mrs. Jimmy makes us an irresistible extended stay for another day. The environment is spacious,...
