Trying to book accommodation in Rumoi

Greetings,

Can anyone advise how I can book a hotel in Rumoi? The 3 hotel listing in Jalan.net are all in Japanese which I cannot understand.

    For translation to English, try google translation website.

    I had used www.japanican.com and have no problem looking for hotels in any part of japan.

    Without a link to the hotel and the dates, I don't know how to give advice. Unless you can read Japanese, I recommend you avoid using jalan. It is a good way to get information on hotels, but other than that, I wouldn't book it without knowing Japanese.

    A tip to using it, just copy and paste the hotel name into Google and look for an official website, if there is one. Then just hope they have an English site.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I can't find hotels in Rumoi under Japanican, Agoda, Rakuten.
    Only Jalan.net has 2 listings.

    Try using google translation webpage to do translation from Japanese page to English.

    One advise, if you have problem reading and understanding Japanese language, you may have problem conversing with the staff of the hotel if they don't speak English and they cater mainly for local tourist.

    Google translation does not work well with Japanese site.
    Yahoo Babelfish is better. After spending half a day going thru jalan.net.
    I manage to come to a page requesting for personal info. However, there is a mandatory field for Japan zipcode which I cannot provide as I am not from Japan.

    Tried calling them without any success. I've send an email to their helpdesk, hopefully they can get back asap. Otherwise I may just skip rumoi and stay in Asahikawa(Another 2 hour drive...sigh).

    Thanks for all the advise. Appreciate it.

    As I said, if you send me a link, I will take a look and see what I can do. No harm in just taking a look, but no guarantees. :)
