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 :-)

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.

Appi Grand was excellent. Our rooms in the Tower, although not brand new in their furnishings, were spacious, well appointed, and with great views. The service was extremely good. The  food in all the restaurants was delicious. The location of the hotel is ideal for easy and true ski in ski out skiing. The facilities of the hotel were extensive, and very good for entertainment of children and toddlers. Thank you again for all your help with the booking.

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!

Late December 2013, Ben and I absolutely loved Pension Ringojam.

Osamu & Eiko Otaka were wonderful hosts and Pension Ringojam had a very homely feel.

We plan to go back as soon as we can and if possible we will stay at Pension Ringojam again. 

Highlights were a traditional Nabe dinner and spending time practising our Japanese with the other guests.

Madarao Ski Resort was definitely one of our favourites - probably up with Cortina (or better), but we were a little early for the best snow. Osamu recommended mid Jan-mid Feb. It was still a great mountain and the midnight skiing on New Year's Eve was pretty special. 

Really good challenging runs and great tree skiing opportunities.

Thanks

We enjoyed the Skiing but the Semi Onsen  was fabulous. The staff looked after our every need and they were delightful the best Japanese experience. 

If they wish to improve on an already great experience adding a dedicated shuttle bus with a bit more flexibility would make just that much better.Would most certainly go back.

Thank you for the work you put in to make that happen.

Kind regards

It was our first time staying at a ryokan and we loved  the Japanese experience at Semi Onsen. The rotenburo was my favourite and was simply beautiful. Often, I had it all to myself. The local ladies and other Japanese visitors who visited the onsen were so friendly, that I finally got some much needed Japanese practice.  We stayed in a western twin room that was immaculately clean, quite spacious and comfortable. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The meals were Japanese style with many, many beautifully prepared, delicious courses.

Geto has been amazing and I think the best powder day I've ever had. Great mountain and great accom with the food a real highlight. Can you please pass on our thanks to the wonderful staff that have taken care of us at Semi Onsen. They are so nice and our stay has been beautiful.

Mid January 2017

Thanks once again for booking our accommodation. 

Our hosts at Annex Aburaya were amazing and so accommodating. English was a challenge but google translator helped massively. It had a real Japanese feel and the breakfast and dinner was great. The ski lifts and slopes are just outside the front door across the road so a hop, skip and a jump and you are off down the mountain. Madarao Ski Resort is sure one not to be missed. The runs are perfect for all levels of skiing. Those who like a bit of off piste stuff well this is the mountain for you as it is aloud. We will be heading back for sure. If you are looking to get away from the now more popular ski resorts in Nagano check out Madarao you will not be disappointed. 
Cheers Larissa 


"We spent 4 days boarding in Madarao, staying at Aburaya.

Each evening we ate in the pension, and the food was amazing.

Although the owners did not speak much English, language was not an issue as they made a huge effort, and the hospitality was first class."

By David

 

"This place was perfect. 

The owners were so hospitable and made a huge effort for us. Nothing was too much trouble. 

The meals were all excellent and on our last night we were really treated to some fine dining Japanese style! delicious! 

The location was also perfect as it was right next to the chairlift. The perfect hosts and great value for money is how i would describe my stay."

We enjoyed our stay at Pension Locomotion. The owner was very helpful. The rooms were not very big but the biggest problem was the mattresses on the beds. We didn't find them very comfortable. Otherwise good value for the money.

Late December 2016

The owner is very nice and friendly. The overall facility is reasonably with its price. However, I got the basement room and it was extremely freezing when compared to the upstairs (breakfast area & common room). It seems that the heater in my room was not sufficient for its condition and size.

My boyfriend and i visited Pension Locomotion on 1/15 this year.

I enjoyed the stay there. especially love the room and cozy bed.

Mid December 2015

The Locomotion was once again a lovely place to stay, it had avery comfortable room & the location was wonderful as it was in a quieter part of Hirafu.

With only a small walk to convenience stores and restaurants you felt like you were amongst it all but had piece and quite when you wanted.   

The Locomotion has a good board room downstairs and plenty of space in the rooms to hang up gear if you wanted.  

The owner was really friendly and cooks up a great breakfast to get you ready for the day ahead!  

The walk to the chairlifts only took 10 easy minutes and you could catch a bus 1 min away from the pension if you were felling lazy.  It definitely felt like a home away from home so we wouldn't hesitate in staying there again!  

Thank you so much for the help again with accommodation and we both look forward to using JSA again in the future:)  Shane & Mel

Your service was great, we had never been to Japan before and explained what type of town we were after and it was exactly what we were after. you communication through the whole booking process was excellent. 

Kawamotoya Ryokan was a great place to stay, the room had a wonderful view of the valley and was a nice walk to the bottom of the ski hill. The food and staff were also very good, highly recommended.

North Point Pension

 

Late January 2014 I had a wonderful trip. 


"The serviced received from yourselves was very helpful and accommodating. You found me a very suitable room at my preferred budget during the peak time of the season. 

The chalet itself was nicely furnished and the room was a generous size. 

The hosts were very friendly and added to the ambience of the accommodation. 
 
 
Mid February 2014. 

Thank you for recommending North Point Pension for my recent trip to Niseko Hirafu. 

Tim and Nic made my holiday! North Point is kept immaculate, and has all the facilities required for a comfortably stay and a great skiing experience. 

The shuttle bus was frequent and not far from the chalet, I even walked home from the slopes on several occasions.

Overall I had a wonderful experience and can’t wait to go back next year!

Thanks
Katherine Earl

 

Late February 2014 

"North Point is kept immaculate, and has all the facilities required for a comfortably stay and a great skiing experience. 

Day starts with a fabulous breakfast, then its mountain time with the fist run my Tim or Nic in the lodge van to the lifts. Generally there will be a second run around 9am for those in not such a hurry, which is kind of good , as there are no lift ques at this time.

Enjoyed the mountain, snow was great , and a nice change from skiing in Australia. I would go back again, in fact my mate I travelled with is already planning a group to return to North Point next year.

Once again thank you, and a huge thank-you to Nic and Tim at North Point Pension for their superb hospitality, and a lodge run to the highest standards."

Late February 2014 

"On my third trip to Niseko, we stayed at North Point Pension. We absolutely loved it! 

Our hosts were incredibly helpful and accommodating, even making our "made to order" breakfast each morning with eggs and bacon. They helped us with rentals, transportation, and recommendations for everything from restaurants to onsens. Thank you Nikki and Tim!

The pension had well spaced rooms that were very clean with heated floors (a must in the winter!). There were plenty of sinks and bathrooms for guests to use and an enormous showering area. They also had two living room areas to lounge or watch television and movies. Tons of bars and restaurants were within walking distance and the bus was less than five minutes away. 

I would definitely stay at North Point Pension next time and recommend it to anyone going to Niseko."

Tim & Nic were very accommodating at North Point and the living arrangements were very comfortable. 

Thanks for making the arrangements. 

We are seriously considering planning for another trip."

Mid January 2014 

"We had the most amazing time! We got North Point Pension so last minute and I don't think we could have found better accommodation. We were so happy with the lodging, and especially with the managers Tim and Nic. 

The mountain was fantastic. We were lucky enough to get hooked up with some locals who showed us all the secret spots and it made the trip so special. We took a couple day trips to Kiroro and Rusutsu. I would highly recommend that others take some day trips to other resorts. It is very cool to experience some of the smaller resorts that are less catered to westerners. 

We were incredibly happy with Niseko, such delightful food available everywhere and such welcoming people. I will definitely be back and am considering making it my home for a season or more! Thank you for helping us find lodging last minute. You were wonderfully helpful and we will definitely use you again!"

Early January 2014  

We had an excellent trip, everything went buttery smooth all the way.

The mountain and it's conditions is as everyone knows world class, at least in the powder department. Prices are reasonable, and also worth mentioning is the food, in most places the food is diverse, made to go fresh and tasty. Our accommodation, I can't speak highly enough about it. Fairly central location, clean, nice rooms, brilliant breakfast and some really knowledgeable, helpful and sweet hosts.

All info I received from you guys were accurate and helpful and made our trip a breeze.

January 2014 

"North Point is by far the most relaxed and comfortable place I've stayed at in Hirafu

The pension itself has all the features needed post powder day such as a sitting room and separate TV room. The rooms are clean and larger than typical Japanese pensions. 

The breakfast supplied keeps you going all day and there are snacks supplied at the end of the day. There is a drying room running continously so your ski kit will be toasty warm each morning.

North Point is close to all ammenities such as the lifts, shops and restaurants even though it's located in the lower part of the village. It's no more than a 10 min walk to the closest lift. The best onsen in town is a 3 min walk away.

Tim & Nic run the loadge and are always on hand to look after all the guests needs such as supplying a washing machine and dryer free of charge. They pick you up from the bus stop when you arrive and run you to the lifts each morning. If they can help, they will.

I've had a fantastic 10 night stay here and will gladly come back. Some rooms have a kind of mezzanine annex so could be good if you had a third person with you"

Peter

"North Point was a great place to stay tucked in a nice quiet part of town. 

Nic and Tim were very accommodating. They picked me when I arrived and drove me to the lifts that following morning. Room were awesome and spacious. Thanks.
