Sukayu Onsen Ryokan guest reviews

 

Early Feb 2017

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for organising our Japan accommodation. 

Your recommendations were fantastic and we loved every place we stayed, particularly enjoying the ryokan experiences at Hakkoda and Geto Kogen. I also want to say thanks for answering any questions we had via email.

Late December 2016

Sukayu Onsen was great and nice with friendly staff, of course not speaking Japanese (for us) or no English for the staff,  is really a limitation but we found in the hotel Japanese guest , english speakers who helped us when needed.

The weather was at that time quite ok, lots of snow fall ;-) ….The team for backcountry skiing from the hotel were super helpful AND extremely professional -All of them! Really adorable! They deserve to have foreign people coming …when I am seeing so many limitation on internet just around the langage barrier…I can tell you they speak enough English to bring you on tour! Our private guide named Satoshi was english speaker and we have had a super nice day of discovering and skiing with our son of 9 years old. Satoshi has been very patient, very kind and he really has customised our day in order to make it safe, agreeable and super fun.

Scenery in HAKKODA are just amazing!! Of course if the weather turns bad, there not a lot to do, however staying at Sukayou is a real plus….you can enjoy the onsen after a full day of ski or even without going to ski.Not sure staying there a full week could please anyone, specially in case of bad weather, the public snow resort is super minimal (just 2 slopes) and if you are in Hakkoda for the first time not recommended at all to go alone on back country-really to risky-Nevertheless, back to Paris now,  we are super Nostalgic, and I am sure we will come back to Hakkoda.

Our stay was a magic stay!!! really!!Thanks for everything and your great support!

Sincerely,
LEILA

Hakkoda trip and accommodation, snow etc was fantastic last February. Hakkoda is a little gem and what a beautiful park.The accommodation was really good. Like an old fashioned ‘hunting lodge’ with a very traditional feelin

Sukayu Onsen Ryokan is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for traditional accommodation at a reasonable price. 

The highlight of the hotel is the large onsen on the ground floor which is a great place to warm up and soothe aching muscles after a day on the slopes. The onsen is mixed but it’s very steamy so don’t let that put you off!

Rooms are tatami rooms with futon beds and are very clean and comfortable. 

Meals are a highlight of the stay, with an excellent buffet breakfast and a ‘semi-buffet’ dinner, ie. several small dishes are served at the table, then you can help yourself to the main dish, rice, miso soup, salad and dessert. The breakfast comprises mainly Japanese dishes, but you can also have cereal, fruit and yogurt and toast if you wish. Excellent coffee is also available.

The hotel runs a free shuttle bus each morning to the Ropeway (cable car), returning in the afternoon. There is also one free bus a day to Aomori station. If you miss this, there are three scheduled buses per day, or you can take a taxi.

The skiing can be summed up in one word - powder! Although there are groomed pistes, the reason to come to Hakkoda is to find fresh tracks down the mountain, particularly through the trees. You could happily days here just skiing runs accessed by the lift, though for the more adventurous, hiking snow-shoes or skins will open up more opportunities. 

Hakkoda is easy to get to from Tokyo and well worth a try if you’re looking for something different.

Late January 2015

The trip was very good, thank you! I appreciate all the organization and time you spent answering emails prior to the trip. The staff at the onsen spoke sufficient English to get by. It would be better if you had told me there is an option for room only, not including meals, as it is a bit expensive, and the food is only so-so. The mountain was amazing. We snowboarded in both whiteout blizzard and blue skies conditions. The snow was fantastic, and the guides are very organized. The other Japanese guests are very friendly as well. They knew it was my first time in back country and helped me a lot. One of the best trips I've had, thanks a lot!

Early Febuary 2015

This was my third ski trip to Japan. I have now had 3 months in total over 3 seasons. I have skied many resorts all over Hokkaido. This most recent trip was my first time skiing Honshu and took us to Nozwa onsen, Madaro and Myoko before our stay at Hakkoda. Over the past 30 years I have skied USA, Canada , France, Austria and of course NZ. I have had thousands of days on skis but never anything quite like our 3 days in Hakkoda. It will always stand out as a special time for my family and I.

As we came prepared for backcountry skiing we loved the Hakkoda experience and fortunately we had the visibility to explore the endless terrain safely.

The snow monster trees were spectacular.

I certainly would not recommend to anyone but the most experienced or super adventurous.

Without good weather you would require a guide for certain.

The Sukayu Onsen was my favorite of the many onsen visited over the years. We enjoyed the authentic traditional feel and Japanese food.

The free shuttle to the lift was much appreciated.  

Overall it was a brilliant few days and we feel lucky to have discovered the Sukayu Onsen before the inevitable crowds of foreigners.

Late January 2015 

It's my last night here at Sakuya Onsen. It has been a wonderful experience staying here, perhaps one of my best ever in Japan,  and the sking was great too.  

I just want to thank you for all your help, the accommodation you found me was top shelf. If you need some more detailed feedback, or any kind of endorsement please just ask.  

I am sure this trip will not be my last so I look forward to planning the next one!

Sincere thanks - Ian

The front desk Staff were great, especially Yasuda Mika, so friendly and helpful.

Mid January 2015

The trip went well, it was great. Great skiing and a very nice cultural experience. I am glad we went to the Sukayu Onsen, because of the traditional japanese type of accomodation it provided. The mountain was good, lots of snow :) We skied 2 days around the lift, when it was dumping, and the rest of the time we did tours of most of the peaks there. It was a really great trip, thank you very much for the help on the booking.

The stay was lovely. My friends enjoyed ourselves very much at your onsen and ryokan.  Appreciate your kind arrangements.

Mid Feb 2014. 

We had a fantastic time, and really achieved harmony at the Sukayo Onsen

We would ski all day and then relax in the hot springs and eat great dinners together.


The snow just kept coming, and we had 5-15 inches of fresh snow every morning.

We slept really well on the Tatami mats, and enjoyed great Japanese food.

This felt like a very genuine Japan experience. 

I would recommend Sukayo Onsen and Amori skiing to all passionate skiers or people who are just looking for a reset. 

Please check out my snaps below

"We had an excellent time at Hakkoda while staying at Sukayu Onsen.

The sheer uniqueness of Hakkoda makes it a must visit while in Japan. It was nice to get away from some of the more tourist hot spots and visit somewhere which had a more traditional feel. 

The snow at Hakkoda was incredible as well as the scenery.

The traditional style of the accommodation was nice and the staff were most helpful even though they did not speak much English. 

The only downside was that some of us got some food poisoning from one of the dinners while staying there. However in saying that we would probably still come here again but avoid some of the raw seafood dishes.

The communication that you provided with the Sukayu Onsen was excellent and very helpful while in Japan especially when organising small things like baggage delivery. 

Thanks for your help

Late January 2017

The hotel was great and the lovely staff gave me a nice thank you letter (I suspect with the help on Google Translate) on departure. My wife, son-in-law and daughter also had a very good time. Food was excellent as usual.

I will certainly be going back next year.

Thanks

Early Feb 2016

We left Hakkoda this morning and I would like to say that we had an excellent stay there.

We lived Hakkoda for powder skiing, and we loved staying at Hakkoda Resort Hotel, warmest welcome, great rooms, great onsen, outstanding food!

We definitely look forward to coming again next year!

Thanks,

Isabelle & family

Just to thank U for everything, we are EXTREMELY HAPPY with the vacation, the amazing skiing the local guide were perfect, and we already plan to be back again!!

Mid March 2015

We had a wonderful time at the Hakkoda Resort Hotel this past weekend.  We enjoyed the Ropeway and skiing.  The food was very good at the hotel.  The rooms were also very nice.

We had one complaint.  The hotel allows smoking in the main lobby and upstairs in the sitting area.  There is no place in the hotel to go and sit without sitting in smoke.  That was very disappointing.

Thank you again for your help in getting us this reservation.

Early February 2015

We had an amazing time at hakkoda, the accommodation was great, simple rooms which were clean and warm and we loved the traditional feel of the hotel with large onsens, great japanese food and good hosts. Definitely good value. Easy to get to. Got good conditions and some adventurous skiing and exploring. Hardly saw anyone else once off the telecabine. Worthwhie using a guide for a day or two to get the lay of the land. One thing that was a negative was difficult to get back to the hotel if you take one of the longer routes that dont end at the bottom. E.g. at the onsen. Couldn't figure out how to arrange pick ups. Would definitely go back.

Thanks
Paul.

Early February 2015

Terrific hotel with a very calm and nice japanese touch to it. We loved the variety of food and good choice of sake.
Superb hosts and great staff.

Hakkoda as a mountain is very special. Not the steepest but with a good range of backcountry experience.

Bring a guide if you want to access the more remote areas as you will need a shuttle service back to the ropeway.

We didn't have any new snow but it's said to be one of the places where it snows heaviest in all of Japan (maybe the world?).

Would love to visit both Hakkoda and Hakkoda Resort Hotel again.

5/5!

Early February 2015

we had a terrific time visiting Hakkoda and the resort hotel.

We were lucky to enjoy the mountain with clear blue skies and views were wonderful.

I can also testify to the beautiful quality food that we enjoyed at the hotel. Most enjoyable.

Thank you as well for organising the accommodation and transfers. As you know the Japanese trains work like clockwork and we were delighted to have our transfer waiting for us following our arrival.

We have plenty of photos and some movie and will send to you a little later.

Thanks again for you assistance.

Early January 2015

We really enjoyed Hakkoda Resort Hotel.  

The staff were excellent.  Friendly and helpful, with excellent English skills.  I must apologise for my difficulties trying to speak Japanese.

The location works very well.  Close to the chair lift and a bit of a walk to the cable car.  The public bus stop is reasonably close but fortunately we had a maxi taxi for travelling to and from Aomori.

Evening banquets were superb.  It was a varying treat each night.

Breakfasts were substantial with western options.  Like most places the choice cereals was limited.

We had a western room, one of only 4 in the hotel.  They are quite spacious but like most accommodation we have stayed at there was limited storage and hanging availability.  One needs to live out of a suitcase.

The onsens are generous and functional.  No view or highlight but most satisfactory.

There is not much around the Hakkoda base but we were there for the skiing and the mountain and weather treated us to some superb kona yuki skiing.

Regards Murray McAlister




 

 

Late January 2015

Hakkoda was FANTASTIC. 
 
The mountain was epic with the amounts of snow we got, sometimes even too much causing you to get stuck.
also quite scary and disorientating when the weather comes in.

GPS, snow shoes, whistles and powder boards/ skis are a must really on this mountain when the weather is bad.. 
In saying that, when you get your bearings, there are endless tree runs in almost every direction, and fresh tracks last all day!
 
The accommodation was great, the staff were friendly, and the food was AMAZING! 
 
I have attached photos!
 
thanks for all your help getting us there, you made it super easy and we will be heading back for sure!

The food was exceptional, the service good & the mountain awesome.

Hope to get back there.

Mid January 2015


As for your service, it was outstanding. You went out of your way to help me, even after my trip started.

I will surely do business with you guys again.

The hotel was great. The food was also amazing. But you have to be aware, this is a typically Japanese experience. Only thing though, there was some pretty heavy smoking going on in the hotel. This was problematic for me. But aside from the smoking, the hotel was super. Pretty much ski in/out. What can you ask more ?

Thanks for everything,
Me Jean-Frederick Dicaire

 

 

Early January 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at Hakkoda.  It snowed alot and the skiing was good.

The lodge quiet, our room was clean and comfortable , the food was great and the small onsen a real treat after skiing.

Smoking is allowed in the common areas in the lounge and we did not expect this, so the lounge smelt smokey.

Early January 2015

Thank you so much for all your help with organising Hakkoda Resort Hotel! You made it very easy in booking the accommodation and organising my return transfer to Aomori Airport. The hotel itself was amazing

The food was simply to die for! 

The rooms were fantastic - always clean and well attended to. 

The staff always smiled and although they spoke little English, they always made the effort and appreciated when I attempted to speak Japanese! 

The onsen was clean and of course the snow was out of this world!

Thanks again for helping me to organise this (being a solo traveller it can be a bit daunting) and I will definitely be back!

Early March 2014 

"Love this place. I've been 5 times in the last 8 years. 

I have boarded every single major resort in Japan, and quite a few of the smaller ones, over the last 15 years, some of them multiple times, and Hakkoda is the best for untouched backcountry. 

The quieter backcountry routes within an hour's drive of Niseko (Hirafu) for example see more backcountry traffic per week, than Hakkoda sees per season in my guesstimation.  

Long untouched runs. Fabulous nature and views. The hotel is fabulous as always with extremely kind and helpful staff, and good Japanese food. 

If you are going backcountry get Simon to take you ... for his unparalled knowledge of the mountain, backcountry safety, local insight, and witty stories"

The hotel was great as always. Only complaint is that my room was overlooking the carpark and the snowploughs woke me up very early every day ... but what to do ! 

Regards
MATT

 

Mid January 2014 I had a very good time in Hakkoda !


It's quite a unique experience to ski there, it's good that I booked a guide otherwise I'm sure I would have gotten lost! 


The hotel was very nice and walking distance to the ropeway, and the booking process was pretty smooth.

You can find some videos on my Youtube page

Mid February 2014  Everything at the Hakkoda Resort Hotel was fantastic.  

The service and food were excellent, and I felt very welcomed there.  I also very much appreciated your help in not only making the reservation but also helping when I experienced travel difficulties.

Please thank the hotel for their excellent service.

Andrew Crowley

 

Mid February 2014  Firstly your service was excellent. Prompt, efficient and helpful.

Onto the mountain, I loved Hakkoda.

It helped that it snowed both days, so the conditions were fantastic. Being fairly quiet without too many Westerners also added to the experience. Tram / lift tickets were very reasonably priced, as was lunch at the restaurant.

As for the Resort Hotel, amazing ! The staff couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly. I liked the basement onsen, particularly the fact there was a hot & cold bath, the rooms were comfortable and the facilities in general were as expected.

Dinner was a sensation every night. I just loved what was on offer. It was both a visual and a taste sensation and on reflection some of the best meals of my 3 week trip, and I went to some nice places.

The only 2 small niggles were:
- the rooms were incredibly hot at night, even with the radiator turned down. If I opened the window, the bleeping from the guy clearing the car park early in the morning was incredibly loud.
- bus stop wasn’t that obvious. We waited outside the ropeway, only to discover we had missed the bus to Shin Aomori as it left from the peaked wooden huts 50 m away

Hardly any major issues.

Attached below are some holiday snaps

Mid February 2014  Let me start of by saying that your service at JSA was second to none.  I meet many Australians whilst traveling in Japan and I mentioned your company and the great service to many of them.

In regards to the holiday, it was fantastic.

In regards to the Hokkoda Resort Hotel I would like to make the following comments

Overall I was very happy with the hotel and would definitely book there again.  The staff were all fantastic and very helpful.  The rooms were adequate.  The one huge surprise was the quality of the dinners at the hotel.  The meals were spectacular and better than many of Melbourne's finest Japanese restaurants where you would pay well over $80 AUD for the same meal.

The only negative comment I have in regards to the hotel was the state of the Onsen.  The staff stated it was cleaned regularly but every days I could see things floating in the water.  There was mould everywhere on the rook and walls.  I visited many Onsens whilst in Japan and this one felt the least healthy. However, that did not distract from my enjoyment of the hotel. 

Trust that I will be using your services when I return to Japan next time.

Many thanks
Scott Mahony

 

I thoroughly enjoyed staying at your hotel, i had a traditional room and found it very comfortable. The hospitality from you and your staff was fantastic, along with your eagerness to help in anyway. The meals were a combination of traditional Japanese and western food which was a good combination. 

I cannot wait to return, 

Thank you,
Mike Bolzon

 

Early February 2014  "We loved our stay!"

The staff are extremely helpful and polite. 

The rooms are clean, have everything you need, and are comfortable and well presented. 

And the food is fantastic! 

The resort is at the base of the mountain, right by the lift and ropeway, this is a huge advantage for many reasons. 

The mountain is amazing. We got it on bad weather but sill had fun in deep powder and definitely want to return. 

The city of Aomori is not too far away and well worth an explore. 

Hakkoda has a lot to offer. Highly recommended. 

 Sera Price

 

Mid January 2014 The hotel was very well located, just a short walk from the two man chair and the ropeway(cable car). 

The hotel itself was very comfortable, the food was good and varied and the staff very helpful.  A number of the staff spoke some English and certainly enough to help answer any questions.

Our room was typical Japanese style, the heating controls were simple and the bedding very comfortable.  There was ample storage for skis, boots and ski clothes, including a drying room, although the whole basement area was warm enough to hang jackets etc.

As a skiing destination it lives up to its billing of having great powder and the snow monsters have to be seen to be believed(basically large fir trees encased in snow and ice). 
However in January the weather can be very cold with limited visibility at the top of the ropeway plus high winds.  Whilst we were there it snowed every day and we tended to ski off the chairlift as there was ample variety, given the snow conditions, with some great tree skiing.  Although the runs were relatively short.

From the top of the mountain it is advisable to take a guide in bad visibility(most of the time whilst we were there!).  The terrain can be quite tricky and it is very easy to end up in the wrong place and having to walk out, not easy in 100cm of fresh snow!



Mike & Jacqui


 

 

Early Janualy 2014  We had a fabulous time and our stay at your resort was the highlight of our Japanese holiday.

I hope we will see you again next year.

Debbie

 

Early January 2014  Wow - powderhounds said that this was powder country and they weren't wrong.

The backcountry riding was fantastic. The weather was abysmal (apart from one day) but then that is the usual in the powder bowls of Japan. The hotel was this quaint little Japanese lodge with a full breakfast and traditional Japanese dinner. Every meal was an adventure. As is usual with the Japanese, the staff couldn't do enough for you. Nice onsen. I'm coming back next year ! Your service was excellent. Prompt and efficient.

Regards, Yusuf

 

Late February 2014  "We just want to say thank you for all your help. Especially before we had booked with you"

We had a fabulous time at the hakkoda resort hotel with some amazing snow and food. 

Everything has gone exactly as you planned it. Hopefully we'll be back next year and will definitely book through you again. "

Thank you 
Fiona

 

Late January 2014 "The Hotel was very good and also the organization of the trip (traveling, cap, trains etc.) worked without a problem. Thank you for your help in this case" 

Unfortunately the weather was bad, so we couldn't really enjoy the deep powder and has also no good pictures.

Maybe it would be great, if you advice the guest that the hotel and the ropeway can payed by credit card, but the all other stuff is by cash and there is no ATM available"

Thanks again,
Daniel

 

Mid January 2014 "The Hakkoda Resort Hotel is very well located a the base of the lift for the Hakkoda Ski Resort. 

"You can expect wonderful Japanese hospitality in a very remote location. 

The facility provides the basic hotel amenities with a fabulous Onsen. 

Do not be afraid to get a Japanese room if the western rooms are not available. The Japanese room includes a western toilet and sink in the room but the shower is downstairs at the Onsen. You sleep on a futon layed out over the delicat rice mat floor. This was not a problem.

The dinner was excellent and the breakfast was adequate.  It is mostly Japanese cuisine. Options are available for allergies other dietary needs. If you speak little or no Japanese, it s not a deterrent.  We booked thru japansnowaccomodation.com and had excellent service from our representative,Hisae. Hisae was very helpful when we needed to rearrange our shuttle
service.   By the way, the snow here is amazing.

There were a few disappointments about the hotel.  The Wifi is poor when everyone wants to get on at night.  Wifi is available in the lobby for free but there is also smoking allowed in the lobby."

Sheldon K

 

Mid January 2014 "The accom was fine" 

" little bit Faulty towers when it came to breakfast. Needs attention. Dinner was Ok and it would be good if they had a nice lounge area or bar to chill out in. 

One of the Aussi Guides that was there spruking in the lodge was a little annoying and spun us full of crap so as we would not find our way around the hill without using a guide. We nutted out the place and found all the exits they were using. Not a good PR person for the lodge. You guys were great thanks."

Andy

 

December 2012 "The hotel was very good - food was great and staff was friendly" 

"The staff has quite limited knowledge in english so it was really good to book through japansnowaccomodation who arranged out arrival and departure. On the downside, the hoteö allowed indoor smoking (probably quite common in japan) so it was quite smelly for a non-smoker."

By Anders and Linda

 

"During my short stay at Hakkoda Resort, the staff was friendly and accomodating" 

"We stayed in a nice tatami room with private bathroom, but no shower. The complimentary onsen was very relaxing and helped soothe the muscles after a long day of shredding the powder on the mountain. 

Dinner and breakfast were a nice combination of western and Japanese food, very tasty and quite filling for a large man. 

The only odd thing about this hotel was the lock down at 10 pm, but there is not much going on for nightlife, so we didn't miss much. 

Thank you Hisae for making the arrangements at this nice hotel."

By Tim

 

"I only stayed two nights at the Hakkoda Resort Hotel, but it was definitely a good experience" 

"The location was great. Staff were friendly (though knowing a little Japanese will certainly come in handy). 

And the food was fantastic. 

The rooms were comfortable and clean. 

One thing that was difficult as a single traveler was the lack of other things to do when not snowboarding (i.e. not much for night life). I saw a bar when I was looking around the hotel, but it wasn't open. So unless you rented a car and can drive back into Aomori, you might be a little bored at night. 

Barring that though, the place was great and Hisae was very helpful in making all the accommodations and answering all the questions I had about transportation, etc."

By Pony

 

"Hakkoda Resort Hotel provides that typical Japanese service with beautiful food and friendly staff" 

"If I have a complaint it would be the allowance of smoking in the Hotel, but I know this is a Japanese standard which hopefully will change with time. 

We would not hessitate to return to the Hakkoda Resort Hotel. 

Thanks again for your work and assistance towards another fantastic Skiing Holiday. 

I will contact you again for 2014."

By S.P

 

"The hotel is very good" - Jean-Francois Veilleux

"The staff is friendly. The bar was close during the stay. The food was very good but for one of my friends it was tough because he don't like fish and for the dinner the only option is fish. 

Also a Big thank you for Japan Snow Accomodation to help me to arrange the hotel and the transportation!!! I recommend this hotel."

By Jean-Francois Veilleux

 

"stayed at Hakkoda Resort Hotel for some days in the beginning of February 2013" 

I have no complaints what so ever.

Ski you later, Ola."

"It has been 8years for me to use this hotel when winter season comes' Chul-Moon Kim

"the most beneficial thing to me is tat this hotel offers free shuttle bus privileged to passengers with Korea airline. 

as I have seen hotel staffs for many years and they have become good friends of mine. 

I also have been around many ski places around Japan however I would say this place is best one. 

only one thing I disappointed at hotel is wireless internet was not successfully provided. 

absoultely I will plan to visit this hotel this year again and next year."



By Chul-Moon Kim

 

"Had a great time here great snow great staff great people wil definatly stay thier again." 

"Took my family from US to Hakkoda as part of our tour through Japan...skiing and experiencing Japan.

Hakkoda is a special place...both for skiers/boarders and general travelers as well. Our stay at the resort hotel was great..

awesome location, they will pick you up when back country and you exit back on the road that circumnavigates Hakkoda mountains. 

Hotel rooms were clean, staff friendly, nice onsen, and good food. All good!"

Hakuba Meteor Lodges

 

Late December 2013  It has been a while, it is good to remember this nice vacation…

The Meteor lodges was all we expected, the room was spacious and warm. The facilities were excellent, we had everything we needed.

We had breakfast and some quick snacks every day at the lodge. Having the option to feed our 3 children quickly, with “home cooked” food makes our vacation easier. 

We went dining at restaurants in the area every evening. The food is very good, but sometimes we had to wait for a table for quite some time. It took us a while to realize that we should make dinner reservations in advance.


We took ski lessons for the children in English, which were very helpful. The beginners as well as the advanced skiers in our family were very happy.

Unfortunately, I only have pictures of the children, but it gets the nice atmosphere…

Thank you for your kind help!

We hope to come again next year


Below are some family pics from our trip.

Mid Feb 2017

We had a great time at Asahidake!

Lucky enough to have a clear day when we had skins to ski up around the vents. Then new snow on 3 mornings. One day blown out!

Still enjoy Bearmonte, with great onsen and very attentive staff. We would comment that the special food they bring, as a long term guest, is sometimes not as good as just on the Buffet. A lot of crab claws were wasted, and some extra main courses were left abandoned, in favour of buffet.

Cheers, Tony

 

 

Mid Feb 2017

Once again we loved Hotel Bearmonte - it was so nice and close to the slopes and every night we looked forward to luxuriating in the Onsen to revive ready for the next day. It was great they had a new ski shop together with snow shoes so that when the rope way was closed we could go for a shuffle.  Food was very good as well - though we all tended to eat too much.

Thanks again for your organisation - everything went smoothly.

Cheers

The transport was waiting for us!

Many thanks and we loved Asahidake. We’ll go again!

Thanks for your help.

Asahidake & Hotel Bearmonte were definitely the highlight of our trip to Japan

The hotel, staff, food, onsen and conditions on the mountain could not have been better. 

I included a photo of Toshi our guide. His professionalism, local knowledge, helpfulness, equipment, and patience made
our day on the mountain with him memorable.  

Please remind your western guests that the onsen changes sides daily for men and women.  One of our crew did not
know this took a left into the onsen just like the previous day. The women in the onsen had a good laugh when he
started to step into the onsen buck naked,ha!!. 

Below are some shots from my trio

Sincerely,

"Asahidake Hotel Bearmonte was excellent. 

Location near cable way was perfect for skiing. 

Rooms were comfortable, clean and warm. 

Breakfasts and dinner at the restaurant were very good.

Onsen was great!

Highlight, however, was attentiveness and service by the staff. For example we bought a bottle of 
sake for our group to drink in a room one night and as we were getting into the lift one of the staff ran 
over and gave us 5 sake glasses forus to use.".

Mid January 2017

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.

Mid Dec 2016

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

Kogakuro guest reviews


Late Feb 2017

Kogakuro Hotel at Akakura Onsen was good. It is in need of some reburbishment but completely comfortable and clean with a lovely host, Meiko. Good breakfast available, we had a Japanese room which could sleep 3 people, and they have an inside/outside onsen which is clean. The outside bath is covered preventing the fresh snow flakes falling into the bath while bathing, which I like! They gave a nice bar with a real fireplace which is not often found in Japan ski hotels, good for apres ski drinks. 

Hisae and her team did a great job to organise our ski trip to Myoko Kogen

Furano Guest House Guest reviews

Furani Guest House

 

Late December 2015

We had a fantastic time again. 

We all really liked the resort of Furano. The lodge was in a great location, easy to walk to slopes. The rooms were so nice, large, spacious, spotlessly clean and lovely view out to some trees. 

It was difficult to communicate with the lady that seemed to be in charge. The lodge was very quite, a bit too quite around the place and lacked a bit of atmosphere. It would have been nice to have the fire on in the night time to sit around and have a drink etc.

Breakfast was OK but being there for a week we had the same breakfast every morning which got very boring -same fruit, same egg dish etc.

Wifi was also problematic. Funny codes, unreliable in rooms etc.

For what they were charging some of the above elements were disappointing.

Thanks again for all your help.

Linda

 

Mid February 2014  Yes we loved Furano Guest House.

I stayed there before – about 3 or 4 years ago.

The operators are lovely people, the accommodation is first class and charming, the attention to detail is obvious and the location is almost perfect for the Kitanomine ski lifts.  

I would go back tomorrow.

Lodge Bergland

 

Late Deecember 2015

We have been travelling mainly on and sometimes off to Japan since 2003. We travelled to Honshu, Nagano area, since we had a brilliant trip the year before skiing Nozawa Onsen and Madarao.

We have used Hisae and the team at Japan snow accommodations, which takes a lot of the hard work out of planning the trip. Also we have asked for alternatives and there was a quick answer and good information at all times.

After Nozawa, We made the short bus trip to Madarao ski resort there are two bus lines that run there daily. This is a small ski area but very compact runs and very nice layout. Again the year before we were skiing abundance of powder, this year was a little slower. We stayed at the Lodge Berglund, Mr Yamada and his family. This is in a secluded area with a short walk to the lifts each morning. They lodge is very clean, breakfasts are very good, a ski drying and storage area down stairs, WIFI everything that we needed for the trip. The lodge has dinners on request, or there are a number of small restaurants within a short walking distance. I would stay there again for the location, small lodge, privacy and the Japanese family atmosphere!

Early February 2015

Lodge Bergland was great.

Top location.

Hosts went above and beyond.

Would definitely stay again and definitely recommend to others.

Thank you also for setting up the accomodation.


Thanks
Damien

 

Late January & early February 2015

My vacation at Madarao was awesome, had a great time!!
Extremely friendly and nice people, made lots of friends, enjoyed skiing with them.
Love the stay at Lodge Bergland, Yamada San and his wife treated me like a family member.
Extremely thankful to Yamada San to pick me up from Tangram resort when I mistakenly ended up there and the return ski lifts had closed. He even gifted me a pair of ski poles!!!!!
Enjoyed drinks and food at Rudolf!!!
Cannot forget Morito San and Akiko san's challenges :-)
And yes!!! What a great skier GG Hitoshi San is, I wish I could train under him!!!!
Attaching few pics, not sure if they are of any good use to you!!!

Regards
Sandeep


 
Late January 2015.

I had a fantastic time at Madarao in no small part due to the accommodation provided at Lodge Berglund by Mr Yamada and his wife. The lodge is a short stroll from the ski lifts and ticket office with guests receiving a generous discount on lift tickets when they purchase a coupon at the lodge in the morning. 

Breakfasts were filling and always served up in time to allow you to make the most of the ski day, do yourself a favour and stay in at least one night for a home cooked meal at the Lodge.

I was fortunate to have Mr Yamada drive me to my accommodation in Myoko Kogen at the end of my stay in Madarao (in a blizard) which I am very greatful of.

I would highly reccommend this lodge to all travelers (singles, groups or families) and will certainly be back in the not too distant future.

Booking through Hisae at Japan snow Accommodation made for a very easy trip considering the limited english in Madarao.

Late January 2014

Hisae from Japan Snow Accommodation arranged my reservation with Lodge Bergland and provided detailed information on Madarao Mountain (such as how to to/from Madarao and facilities available in Madarao) in addition to details about Lodge Bergland. Hisae was very prompt in responding to my various requests for quotes on accommodation and helped me greatly in finding accommodation in Madarao that ticked all the boxes at the right price for a solo traveller. My stay at Lodge Bergland was one of the highlights of my journey around Japan – it was a true cultural exchange which has left me with many happy memories. The owners of the lodge are extremely welcoming and generous – Mr Yamada even arranged a day trip to Myoko Kogen and spent the day skiing with me. The size of my room was very large with two very comfortable single western style beds and a small bathroom including toilet and shower. A gender separated bath was also available downstairs in the afternoon/evening to ease the tired muscles at the end of the day. The breakfasts were amazing with something different each day. The location of Lodge Bergland is quite good within close proximity to a convenience store and a short walk up to the ski area entrance. In summary, Lodge Bergland offers excellent hospitality at the right price with great value bonuses such as discounted lift tickets, ski hire and waxing. The ski area is amazing on a powder day. Many of the courses are ungroomed with plenty of opportunity for awesome deep powdery light snow and you can challenge your skills in the tree run areas. There is also a pretty awesome view from the top of the mountain. There are plenty of on mountain dining options at very reasonable prices. Off mountain, there are a few convenience stores and small restaurants in addition to the Madarao Kogen Hotel offering both Japanese and Western style food. Take your time to find the smaller restaurants and you will be rewarded with friendly service and delicious food. Below are some photo's from my trip Cheers Alison

 

Late December 2013 "My stay was very nice!

Concerning the mountain, the snow was very good! There was just a few lifts which weren’t operating... i don’t know why, but still it was nice.

The lodge was very nice and comfortable. The host was very kind and helpful! i would definitly recommand this place. 

I don’t have pictures of the hotel, but I attached a few pictures of the ski station. 

Thanks for your help, everything was fine" 

From Martin N

 

 

"We had stayed in NozawaOnsen for 3 days prior to arriving in Madarao. 

The feel of Madarao town is quite different from Nozawa Onsen (more european style at MK compared to traditional village style at NO). 

We found the Lodge Bergland a very enjoyable stay with the owners being very helpful. 

Rooms were clean, spacious and nicely heated. Im not sure if double beds are available but we were given singles (not that we had any issue with that). 

The lodge offers ski hire at far cheaper price than outside and of acceptable quality. 

The breakfast was typical of the lodges we stayed at and was very nice. 

It takes approx 5min to walk from the chairlift to the lodge (in ski boots). The ski field is much smaller than NO but still very enjoyable (especially the off piste skiing in the trees). 

We would definitely go back to stay at Lodge Bergland given the chance."

January 2013 "I had a great trip thank you for your help and recommendation. 

Lodge Bergland is a great place to stay for your time at Madarao kogen. A warm and homely place with a very friendly and accommodating owner, very attentive and ensured that my stay was a great experience willing to help with lift tickets and transport to local restaurants and even to the mountain. 

The room was extremely warm and comfortable and of good size. Great onsen downstairs. I will definitely Return on future visits."

By A.W

 

"Thank you so much Mr. And Mrs. Yamada, Our stay at your lodge was just awesome. 

The food was excellent, the hospitality was exceptional, and your kindness to our group was SUPERB! 

Thank you for the ski lessons and your lovely lodge accommodations. Much Aloha"
