BIGLOBE Inc. (Headquarters: Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo, President/Representative Director: Takeshi Ariizumi) held the award presentation ceremony “BIGLOBE People’s Choice: The 11th Onsen Award” at Shibuya Stream Hall on March 12, based on the results of a poll conducted on travel comparison portal “BIGLOBE Travel” and accommodation reservation free app “Tabi-Hikaku Net”.http://www.stevecafeandcuisine.com/

BIGLOBE Onsen Award introduces popular hot spring areas and accommodations, namely hotels and ryokans, in eastern and western Japan, on the basis of the results of user polls conducted on travel comparison portal “BIGLOBE Travel” and accommodation reservation free app “Tabi-Hikaku Net”. The newly launched “ryokans/hotels recommendable to foreign tourists” category is especially notable; as the increase of inbound tourists continues to accelerate with Japan hosting the Rugby World Cup this year and the Olympic/Paralympic Games next year, the new category was created from the wish to introduce the recommendable accommodations from the Japanese people’s perspective. Ibusuki Hakusuikan (Kagoshima Pref.) was selected the inaugural #1 ryokan.

As for the “hot spring area” category, Kusatsu Onsen (Gunma Pref.) was chosen #1 of the east segment for 11 years in a row, while Beppu Onsenkyo (Oita Pref.) took the west #1 for four consecutive years. In the “ryokan/hotel” category, Kinugawa Onsen Asaya (Tochigi Pref.) maintained the eastern top it had achieved last year, and Suginoi Hotel (Oita Pref.) stayed the western yokozuna for four years straight.
