We enjoyed our time there. Very friendly hosts and authentic Japanese experience. Possibly a little too far out of town though. We did a mixture of alpine touring and downhill skiing. Unfortunately we didn’t have great snow for the first part of our trip but we all thought it would be great to ski with fresh powder. We came back to Furano for a day of slack country skiing and it was very nice.
I found your service to be excellent. Very helpful and prompt.

We were made to feel very welcome by Joe and his family as Akaneyado and felt like we were staying in their house which was very cosy and tidy.
The breakfast and occasional evening meal that we had were healthy, fresh and traditional Japanese style.
Joe even cleared snow off our car for us and also provided a lot of useful information about the local area and the skiing.
The accommodation is in a nice rural location about 20 minutes from Furano and an hour from Tokachi-dake.
Thanks to Joe and his family - we will be back!
