There are a few business hotel and ryokan with standard rooms in the city center a few minutes’ walk from the train station. Iwamizawa is a good base of visit the old coal mine towns in Sorachi Region. Another advantage is that you can take the local train bound for Asahikawa early in the morning. Rustic onsen is also highly recommended.
