In a secluded Hanazono wood in Japan’s north island, Hokkaido, is a luxury boutique ryokan surrounded by expansive views of nature. This is Zaborin 坐忘林 .



Each of the 15 villas are suites furnished with its own private indoor and outdoor onsen surrounded by nature. The Japanese baths are fed from the natural hot spring beneath the ryokan.
