Welcome to Ryokan Sensyoen

We love our home: Asahikawa, Hokkaido, and Japan. Located in the heart of Hokkaido, our rice, vegetables, and fruit are truly delicious. Asahikawa and Sapporo markets are the first stop for freshly-caught seafood from the seas surrounding Hokkaido. This is the secret to fresh seafood at an inland location!
We proudly continue to use almost exclusively local and domestic produce.

Selecting the freshest ingredients blessed by the bounty of the four seasons, and bringing out their natural flavor… this is the joy and delight of cuisine.
Even small details like the choice of tableware compliment the expression of the seasons and our hospitality.
Our greatest pleasure is seeing joy shine through on our guest’s faces as they partake in Sensyoen’s unique, elegant dining experience.

Buckwheat Noodle Restaurant “Sobasen”
Buckwheat Noodle Restaurant “Sobasen” The stylish soba buckwheat noodle restaurant “Sobasen” is our pride and joy. Our soba noodles are freshly made using traditional techniques and locally-produced buckwheat flour, making this Sobasen one of the Takasago area’s most well-known dining spots. A must try!

“Sensyoen Buckwheat Beer” — made only during the buckwheat harvest season. Using buckwheat grown in Horokanai, this distinct local brew is only available at Sensyoen. Available from late September while stock lasts, this beer typically sells out by yearend.

We also highly recommend fresh local treats such as tomato juice, milk, soft-serve ice cream, and our fine selection of liquors. Most of our menu makes use of Asahikawa or Hokkaido produce.
