The Youth Hostel 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.
