A Night At This Epic Hotel in Japan Includes an All-You-Can Eat Seafood Buffet for Under $100

In Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido lies one of the country’s most well-known vacation spots. However, according to RocketNews24, a big negative of traveling to the island is that it’s extremely expensive to fly there. Such a drawback could force you to use up much of your travel budget.

However, there is an awesome hotel that includes much of what Hokkaido has to offer. The hotel is in the city of Otaru, a city known for it’s great food and scenery.


In the city lies the hotel Akari No Yu Dormy Inn Premium Otaru.


The guys over at RocketNews24 paid a total of 14,400 yen (roughly $143.50) total for two people. For all the amenities and food that comes with it, this is a pretty sweet deal.
