Zao Onsen Tsuruya

 

Mid March 2014 

A pleasure to stay at Tsuruya. 

The staff provide a wonderful service and are fantastic. If i get the chance to go to Zao Onsen again I will definitely stay here. Tsuruya provide a transit service to the ski lifts and there is a drying room at the hotel, making it extremely easy to get to the snow.

The accommodation was great. Zao Onsen is a wonderful location. While I have been to other locations in the Japanese slopes, I really enjoyed skiing here and enjoyed myself immensely.

I have attached two photos – one of the mountain, and one of the room we stayed at

Japan Snow Accommodation provided an excellent service in arranging our accommodation on our behalf. They were timely and friendly and we experienced no troubles at all. 

The traditional accommodation of Lodge Tsuruya was amazing and the staff were very helpful, even lending us their own personal snow boots one night!. I would not hesitate to recommend this service and this accommodation to my friends.

 "Its nice to talk to you again. Below is my review, hope it helps

I also attached a couple of photos for your reference.

The stay was wonderful, hotel was great, staff were very friendly, equipment rentals were very easy and just across the street from the slope, which was about 2 minute drive using the hotel's excellent shuttle bus.

The slope access was easy too, there are many different pricing schemes for the ski lifts and the staff were more than helpful in showing which is the best scheme for you, be sure to consult the staff on which scheme so you don't end up buying the wrong card.

The hotel is literally across the Zao bus station which we arrived to by the 40 minute bus from Yamagata, nice ride, didn't feel like 40 minutes at all.

There is also a ski school which really helped us to capture the basics quickly in their 2 hour lesson.

The hotel does not offer western breakfast, so if you don't like Japanese food for breakfast there is a small restaurant down the street that serves French Toast and its very good, the lady and the cat (yup, a cat called Hana) are very welcoming.

Japan Snow Accomodation provided the great service and arranged the stay for us and payment was convenient through paypal.

Had a blast, definitely going back!"

Thanks Hisae, really appreciate your service.

Kind regards,

Omar.

 


"Tsuruya is absolutely SUPERB...!!! I'm really regretting that I only stayed there for one night only. 

I already mark another day next year to go there....

What is the best thing about Tsuruya? Let me describe it:

1. GREAT hospitality....!!! Almost every staff there checking our group condition and schedule with genuine concern. Seriously, they always remind us to be ready for dinner, breakfast, and the trip to snow monster. When we were wandering inside the hotel, everyone try to offer their help without hesitation, even offer to take a picture of us together when they see us with camera...!!! It's the most memorable thing about this hotel. Although they dont speak english, they really try hard to explain things to us.

2. WONDERFUL room...!!! It's the most japanese ambience room we had so far..., complete with the traditional futon and yukata. It feels really japan here, and that is what we are looking for. It is very spacious with great big window view while the facilities are modern enough.

3. PERFECT location...!!! When we took the bus from yamagata station, it feels like we're entering the mordor valley because of the big snow storm at the middle of noon...! But right after we put our feet on the ground, somebody asked us where do we stay. When we said, "Tsuruya", he's so surprised -- as well as we surprised -- and show us that it's exactly located in front of the station, only ten steps away.... Nice!

4. SATISFYING meals...!!! We spent almost two hours to finished-up our dinner. We were stuffed and sated...!! And we got a private room for dinner and breakfast. Very unexpected...

5. BEAUTIFUL onsen...!!! We got free private onsen. It's more than enough for us who feels a little bit shy to join in public onsen. It's really an additional value for Tsuruya to have these private onsen...
All and all, 5 stars!!!

I cant wait to get back there...!!!"

By Ganda

 

"We had a great time staying at Tsuruya. Location is good as it is located right opposite the bus station. 

No fuss in getting to and from the station as we just need to walk across. 

The staff were very warm and friendly even though we can't speak Japanese. 

Breakfast and dinner were included and we had choices with varieties. Not the same food everyday. Food tastes great as we love Japanese food. The pictures on their website are accurate in showing what they serve. 

The onsen is not too bad, though the outdoor pool is a little small. It works fine. There is also a choice to use the private onsen for a fee. 

All in all, we would recommend this hotel to other travelers. 

If we were to visit Zao again, we will stay at Tsuruya."

Early January 2015

My travel mates and I had a spectacular time at Woody House Kazamidori. Midori was delightful and such a sweet host: She and her husband went out of their way to pick us up and drop us off, give us directions and recommendations, and make the most incredible breakfasts! The entire house was cozy and comfortable, including the bedrooms and baths. Woody House Kazamidori was truly our favorite place that we stayed in Japan. We hope to go back and stay there again!

Myoko was also amazing - we had some of the best skiing of our lives at Akakura Kanko. On-mountain and side-country both offered great woods skiing, and it hardly stopped snowing our whole time there! We also took a side trip to see the Snow Monkeys - well worth it. We will definitely go back to Myoko to continue exploring amazing skiing.

We thank you so much for providing great recommendations, and for helping coordinate this wonderful experience. Your promptcommunication helped us out tremendously as we planned our trip.


Thanks again - until next time!

Hotel Shirakabaso

 

Late December 2013 


"We have booked hotel  Shirakabaso trough Japan Snow Accommodation. All our inquiries about hotel  were answered by the staff very promptly.

The staff also provided us with some hints and tips that were very handy for us while we were arranging entire trip to Japan. Thanks to the staff from Japan Snow Accommodation for our trip to go so smooth.

Hotel Shirakabaso is a hotel that can cater for everyone. For someone who just wants to relax or for a family.

As soon as we entered hotel we felt welcome. The staff were so comforting and helpful. 

The rooms were cosy  and were able to  accommodate four of us and made us feel comfortable.  

After a long day of skiing we would come to the room and go to the hotel's communal bath (despite our room had en-suite with the bath). It was a great cultural experience  The bath also  had all necessities to make this experience very relaxing. 

The hotel's outdoor onsen is one not to be missed and it  was spectacular, just feeling the cold of the snow but also the heat from the pool and just the piece and quiet made it a lot more relaxing. 

After the onsen we would go to have dinner. This was a one of the things we were looking forward to every day. At first it isn't much but they just keep bringing more and more delicious food. By the end of dinner all four of us would be full as there was so much variety. The breakfast in the morning was very similar and would give us lots of energy for the day. 

The hotel has skiing gear for rentals as well as some stuff for little kids. 

Hotel's location is also very convenient for exploring Shiga Kogen by ski or by shuttle bus.

Overall the hotel is very cosy. The manager and staff are fantastic and helpful. Service were great and  the food was delicious.  We would definitely recommend this hotel for its hospitality and facilities and great cultural experience.

"We were back to Hong Kong yesterday!  We have a very pleasant stay at Hotel Shirakabaso!

They provided a high standard of service, rooms are nice and big, breakfast and dinner are delicious, rental equipment are new, very heartfelt services in every details.  

My husband was hurt during skiing, Sato san sent him to the medical centre which is 30mins away from the hotel and took care of him very well.  Really appreciated!

Mid February 2017

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.

Sheila


 
Late December 2016

Resort
1. Great resort for beginners. The green hill is wide and long, allowing for beginners to space out on the slope so it's less likely that they'll bump into each other. There are several ski schools that operate on the hill and youre bound to be able to get a lesson if youre willing to share a session with strangers.
2. There is a counter where english speaking guests can raise their questions and the rest of the field is easy enough to navigate without much being lost in translation.
3. The eatery on location is good but is also quite limited, guests are encouraged to look into the multiple pensions/restaurants around the slopes for meals if they require variety. 

Accommodation. 
1. Great value for its price.
2. The meals prepared were varied and tasted very good! Definitely one thing we missed.
3. Quite far from town center. For those who want to eat out after skiing, it's recommended that you get a car or hire a cab to send you back to the pension. The host provides pick up and drop off in the mornings (8-9 am) and early evenings (5-7pm) and we found that it fit our schedules perfectly.4. Given the price and the transport option, it's no surprise that this pension sees a lot of customers. Book early!

Service
1. You guys are amazing as always Hisae.Definitely looking forward to use your service again.

Thank you.

Regards,
Arif

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!

Hotel Green Plaza Hakuba guest reviews

 
 
 
Early January 2017

Our group of 3 had a great time at Hotel Green Plaza Hakuba. Upon arrival, we initially had some confusion with ski passes between Hakuba Cortina/Hakuba Valley, but thankfully the communication between the staff at the hotel & Hisae enabled us to have this all fixed up within 24 hours & did not result in us having to change any of our plans. Throughout our stay we had daily issues with the Wifi, only able to connect after 9pm at night.

Hakuba Cortina itself is a smaller resort compared to others in the Hakuba Valley. There was a range of runs, particularly more beginner/intermediate with a few advanced runs. Being early in the season majority of the more advanced runs were still closed due to poor coverage. There were very small lift queues which enabled us to maximise our skiing time. The runs we were able to ski we very enjoyable! We finished our days in the onsens, which were very relaxing.

Within Hotel Green Plaza we thoroughly enjoyed our included buffet breakfast. This included both asian & western cuisines. For other meals throughout the day, there were limited options. Lunch options included 1 busy cafe/restaurant & another buffet. Dinners again had the choice of cafe/restaurant which had 3 pasta dishes, pizzas & a curry to choose from or another buffet which was JPY 3780 per person. This resort could be improved by having a bar/pub style area or having the cafe/restaurant area open later than 7:30pm.

Our transfers between Nagano station & the resort, were great. Very efficient & run perfectly on time.

We also did the snow monkey tour as a rest day. I would highly recommend this day trip & it was one of the highlights of our trip. The 2km walk up to where the snow monkeys are is quite magical! This day also included a traditional Japanese lunch & the afternoon spent at a temple in Nagano.

Overall we enjoyed our stay in Hotel Green Plaza Hakuba, but would recommend this hotel to families, rather than couples.”

I hope this helps Hisae! Thank you again for all of your organisation, we really appreciate it.


Arigato!

Mid January 2017

Fantastic trip with every detail covered.  Good prices and ski in/ out accommodation locations. Abundance of powder snow. Japan Snow Accommodation had so much local knowledge of the area and were able to direct us to our destination. The language barrier was much higher than we anticipated and it was a relief to have all the information for our transfers at hand provided by JSA prior to leaving.   They the trip was mapped out and we could follow instructions to exactly where we were going.  Well worth it for the snow and the cultural experience. Trip of a life time with two weeks of incredible snow riding.

Mid Feb 2016

My partner and I are both extremely satisfied with your services and appreciate all of your help regarding our holiday to Hotel Green Plaza Hakuba. It was definitely a highlight of our stay in Japan.  We are grateful that you arranged the upgrade to the kaiseki for no additional cost and sent plenty of information regarding access to the hotel. It was really easy coming from Tokyo and then departing to Shibu Onsen. (However, one of the bus timetables has changed and now has additional services - I'll send you the timetable when I find the brochure again!) We are really impressed with your service and the inclusions of your offer!

The moment when you come up over the hill and see the hotel for the first time is very striking. It is huge! My partner and I stayed in the roomy standard room of Hotel Green Plaza Hakuba. It was great having a spacious room after our stay in a small city room. Some of the decor and the bathroom were a little dated but the wonderful view facing the mountains made up for it. 

I would recommend other visitors to bring food for lunch and snacks during their stay but if not there is some restaurants open for lunch, which can be a little pricey, and snack food downstairs. The Wifi can be a little spotty but did the job. The best part of the hotel was the food, a two-day-rotational buffet with something for everyone and, of course, the skiing. The kaiseki was brilliant and I would recommend it to other travelers also. 

We would describe our skiing and snowboarding as intermediate and there was plenty of runs to choose from. The best part is there is little-to-no wait for a lift. Pretty much just hop on! Unfortunately for the first half of the trip there was little snow fall which led to some runs having holes or exposed plants but during the last half of our trip, there was so much powder and snow fall. The employees are very helpful and polite and many know English.

Thank you for a great trip and for all of your help along the way. I don't mind if you use this response or photos.

Mid February 2015

My group of 5 have been to many resorts in USA, Japan, and Europe before and all have varying ability levels of skiing/riding. We were pleased to find that Cortina caters for all levels with short steep tree runs for the advances and wide open groomers for intermediate. Our week was blessed with 2 feet of snow over the first 2 days and followed up by some blue bird days which made for some great conditions all literally from our front door. 

The Green plaza Hotel is truly gorgeous, it looks like it belongs in the Swiss Alps rather than a small resort in Japan. We found the rooms quite large and spacious which is a rarity in Japan as well, more than enough rooms for our group après after a day on the slopes. Buffet style Bfast an dinner was included in our package and was a treat as well with plenty of western and Japanese dishes to choose from, the all you can drink card was quite fun too.

The hotel also has a large onsen with many pools of varying depths and temperatures, one which even overlooks the slopes. A great way to sooth the sore legs that's for sure. 

All in all it was a great trip and we will be going back for sure, I cant thank Hisae enough for all her work to make it such and enjoyable trip and attending to our requests.

Late February 2014 

We had a great long weekend at Cortina and the hotel was great. Room suited us perfectly with 3 young kids (3 under 3.5), Buffett restaurant was great and ski runs and kids play park all fantastic. In the end 2 other families joined us and we were all able to ski and play together. My 3 yr old tried skis for the first time which was very exciting to see.

February 2014  

Cortina was superb and we were absolutely overwhelmed by the sheer size of the hotel and once again the staff were fantastic.

Thank you for everything you did for us. We had the most amazing time and everything went like clockwork. Your communication with us was prompt, the booking and organisation was efficient and extremely easy.They even organised transport for us back to Hakuba (Wadano) at the end of our stay.

We were once again extremely lucky with the snow and had great powder skiing.

The food was also amazing with a huge , delicious variety of food.

The mountain, although not huge, had fantastic tree runs and although we didn't go back country there was plenty of opportunity for those with the right equipment.

A free shuttle bus allowed us to go to other resorts in the Hakuba Valley, especially to visit the little villages after skiing. 

The rooms were a combination of Western and Japanese and once again we were surprised by the size of the rooms. You could easily accommodate children in your room if they slept on futons

We are very interested in returning to Cortin and would appreciate any packages you have for the 2014/2015 season.

Once again thank you for all your help.

I have attached some pics from our trio below.....

Kindest regards,

Late January 2017

Hotel Daimaru was conveniently located a 2min walk to Akakura Onsen lifts, the hotel rooms were huge by Japanese standards- plenty of room for laying out damp snow gear. The breakfast buffet was good and lockable snowboard racks in the downstairs storage room was a bonus. Great location, good value and epic Myoko powder.

Cheers Jodie
 

 

Mid January 2017

we had a great time at Hotel Daimaru. Our rating would be excellent for service, breakfast, onsen and location. Medium for hotel maintenance as it really needs some light renovation work (paints are peeling, carpet is very old and worn).

Having said that, i would go back and hope for a little refresher of the place :-)

Amy 
 
Mid January 2017

HUGE snowfalls in Myoko but the whole ski area layout unfortunately is a logistical challenge and pretty tiring on kids in particular with all the walking and poor lift connectivity. The skifields are pretty flat too and you need steeper terrain for those snow fall quantities.

Whilst clean and Huge rooms the Daimaru is really really tired with wallpaper peeling off etc. The colours of the dated interior, vinyl floors and carpet etc was so bad it was laughable and everyone had a great joke about it. That said I would still recommend it and it was fine.

Hint for future bookings: You dont want to be in a room facing the road at Daimaru. The noise of the snow movers every night between 2am and 5am was pretty bad and caused sleeping challenges.

Your assistance in this trip was fantastic.

Thanks so much again.

Hotel Daimaru was an interesting place to stay.

On the downside it is very rundown and in need of some renovation.

However it is clean and comfortable with large rooms and the staff were really friendly and helpful. It is an easy walk to chairlifts at akakura onsen resort and from there access to Akakan resort was convenient. It is also possible to walk through the village to the Akakan resort. We travelled on the shuttle bus to nearby suginohara resort and had 2 great days there with good snow and no crowds.

We had exceptionally good service at Spicy snowboard/ski hire shop, their equipment was good, well maintained and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had suitable gear.

We had a great time. 

The accommodation was good (the only thing could be better is a description on where accommodation is situated when trying to find it for the first time). 

We did not spend too much time in Niseko skiing unfortunately; we drove rather to Rusutsu the first days and went skitouring instead to find untouched powder snow.

Hope all is well.

We were in Habuka early jan 2014 for skiing and stayed at The Gondola Apartments with 3 bedrooms.

The apartment was clean and modern with a fireplace,and the kitchen was also well equipped.

Location was perfect,right in the heart of the village and surrounded by ski shops,restaurants,bars and next to the main gondola.What a beautiful view from the apartment!

Daniel the owner was extremely friendly and helpful,helping us to arrange
for taxis and onsens etc,nothing was too much for him! Thank you Daniel! 

Last but not least,the skiing was terrific,excellent powder snow and there
are numerous slopes to suit all levels.We all had a wonderful time and are
already planning our next trip soon.
