Hotel Manseikaku Bearmonte guest reviews

 

 

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

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,
Dennis Purcell


 

 

 

"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.".

Monaile Madarao guest review

 
 
 
 
 
Late January 2017

We had a great trip to Japan, the snow was incredible and we had some lovely sunny skiing days. 

In terms of the hotel - the room layout was great for a family, but the hotel itself is very dated and a bit rundown for the price. Though it is convenient to have breakfast and dinner included, you wouldn't want to eat at the Monaile restaurant every night as it was quite limited, so we found we went up to the Kogen Hotel for dinners (which was included in the deal, you could eat at either hotel). The staff were absolutely lovely, and it was a ski in/ ski out location. The shuttle bus was always available which was also convenient.

We will keep in touch as Japan is a great family holiday for us, and we are all likely to want to return!

Mid January 2017

We had another wonderful holiday at Madarao. As usual, the standard of accomodation, level of service and equality of food were excellent value for money. 

Each year the resort is starting to provide more services for Western customers. There are now 2 really good coffee spots and more options for english ski lessons. 

This year the skiing conditions were perfect . So much powder and the slopes were really quiet. Madarao is a great family resort. There isn’t a huge amount of night life or dining options outside the main hotels but for families who just want convenience and easy access to ski slopes it is perfect.

Early January 2017

Yes we had a great trip – loved Madarao. The hotel was fine – slightly older hotel etc but we had the benefit of using the facilities up the road at the bigger hotel. The shuttle bus worked well and we were always able to get around (except for one v heavy snow day!).It is a tiny resort and very Japanese. 

Have to say we did enjoy it a lot.

Late December 2016

We had a fabulous stay at Madarao. This was my visit ski holiday ever so I was a little nervous about the whole thing.  Your service was fabulous, very professional.  Our booking went very smoothly, no issues at all once we were on the ground.  Everything as planned.

The accommodation was clean, tidy.  Basic but very adequate.  Room was warm which was the main thing!  And there was plenty of hot water so we were always warm! The shuttle bus up to the main resort was very frequent.  It really was no hassle staying down at the annexe hotel.   We used the facilities of the main hotel without any issues.  The Onsen at the main hotel is lovely.  Buffet restaurant also good.  Breakfast at the Annexe very Japanese style which was lovely.

We had a great trip, wonderful experience which went very smoothly.We would definitely use your service again and highly recommend Madarao if you want a very Japanese ski experience.  There were few Western tourists at Madarao which made our experience all the more authentic which we enjoyed immensely.

Thanks and cheers

2016

I just wanted to say thank you and all the staff of Madarao Monalie that made our stay a wonderful experience.

The warm hospitality, nothing was ever a bother or an inconvenience – its very much appreciated.

We will miss Madarao (beautiful people & place) – until we’re there next.

Ross, Amy, Peter – thanks for all your assistance in helping us get to experience Madarao.

Thanks & kind regards,

Peter

I’ve now back at home and work and still thinking about my time in Madarao. Enjoyed the hospitality and looking forward to the next time I’m there.

Kind regards,

Late March 2016

Thanks so much for all your help. We are still at Madarao enjoying the fabulous Japanese hospitality of all here especially Toru who has looked after us so very well, he is Si,ply delightful and so helpful. 

We have been down off the hill on the local bus that is the only one still running to Iiyama. Iiyama itself has so much to see especially the clay doll museum, amazing! The brand new info office at the wonderful new Iiyama station is excellent and you can see all the buses coming in from inside their picture windows and lovely heated waiting area. We also did a trip to the snow monkeys that Toru helped us arrange from the station for 4800 yen plus discount if you use the bar code on the brochure, about $50 each. Before the big dump of snow it looked like the season would end this week but we are now snowed in! Took another trip on local bus to Nozawa Onsen and returned on the Nozawa Liner bus which is still running from the station. Many thanks again, I am more than happy to provide any kind of promotional support I can for this fabulous lesser known resort in the area. Do let me know if I can be of any help. Do you have Toru or Aki's full names and email contacts as I would like to send them personal letters of thanks. 

Here are some from Madarao Kogen for you to use in what ever way best suits the support of both resorts - a great place for aussies to visit and ski and sOOOOO easy with the beautiful new Iiyama Shinkansen sation right at the bottom of the hill. 

Even though we were at the very end of the season and most buses had stopped running we could still work around the community bus timetable and get down to walk Iiyama City, do the snow monkeys tour including beautiful Shiba Onsen on the way back and went down later in the week again to go over to Nozawa Onsen for a look. Then.....we had a meter of snow dumped on us over two nights and days so of course went out for the next three days to play in the pow! It was just beautiful, Toru was sensational as was Aki and Toru even drove us down the hill on the final sunday morning as our shinkansen connection for Osaka via Kanazawa didn't match with the local bus. He's simply the loveliest guy and so very helpful. 

I would do what ever I can to assist you guys support our Buller/Madarao relationship and feel so very privillaged to have been accepted into the program from BSL. 

Ski Hire people at Madarao Kogen Hotel couldn't do enough to help us, gear was fine! They had our soft boots ready for us each time we turned up back at ski hire!


I have about 1000 pictures of all over Japan, do let me know if you'd like me to hunt you up some specific areas - like Shinkansen photos etc. Kind 

Regards Lea and Rod Gill

Madarao hotel this was really great for families and would highly recommend this hotel and location is fine.  It’s a quiet family hotel with all the facilities you could want.  Lovely rooms.   

I don’t mind if you put my Madarao comment on the web site.

Thank you again.

Mid January 2016

We stayed Monaile Madarao in Mid January. Two families of 2 adults and 3 children each.

The hotel was very comfortable and perfect for a family.

Great views of the slopes from the rooms and very clean. Fairly basic accommodation but excellent value.

Excellent in Hotel Onsen.

Breakfast was always good and perhaps better than the breakfast on offer at Madarao Kogen Hotel which is the sister Hotel.

The shuttle between the 2 Hotels was terrific. It went whenever you wanted with very little wait.

Being able to ski pretty much from outside the door down to the lifts every day was a huge bonus.

The runs were a good mix of challenging and steep right through to some wide gentle cruisers.

It was nice to see so many Japanese and so few westerners at Madarao. 

Lots of snowboarders!

Lifts are pretty slow but quite well connected and as the resort is on the smaller size it is easy to ski it all, but it doesn’t become boring.

There are good eating options on the mountain and a few great little restaurants in the the village. 

Be prepared to book for the evening meals as they don’t have much capacity and close early.

You could end up eating 2 minute noodles in the room otherwise!

One tip is to stock up in Iiyama on snacks and things when you get off the Shinkansen and before you get the bus up the mountain.

The supermarket is next to the station. Madarao has very limited convenience store options.

Overall a wonderful resort and despite the unusual season of 2016 we still had enough snow to really enjoy the trip.

Hisae and the team at Japan Snow Accommodation did a great job recommending the Resort.

Thank you

Sorry for the delay in responding to this I have been extremely busy since returning from Japan. 

Our trip was fabulous!! This was our second time to Madarao and it was as good as I remembered! Would be happy for you to share any of the below my feedback on your site! 


Our trip to Madarao was absolutely amazing! Monaile Madarao is a great hotel with everything you might need on site - ski lockers, restaurant, small convenience store, wi-fi, laundry and an onsen. You also can't not give a mention to the ability to ski in and out, the free shuttle bus to and from Madarao Kogen, a view you can never get sick of and a wonderful team of staff who go above and beyond to ensure you have a great stay.  This was our second trip to Madarao and it didn't disappoint! The snow is perfect and powdery with lots of ungroomed runs and plenty of room on the slopes. 

Booking with Japan Snow Accommodation made planning our stay so easy as it meant I had our room, breakfast (the option for dinner) and lift passes all sorted before I left home and combined in one transaction. The quick response times and easy booking process made it hassle free and we had absolutely no issues from start to finish! We'll definitely use them again! 

I have also attached a couple of photos you can use if you like?  


Thanks for all your help!

Late February 2014. Your help and advice was very helpful! Our trip was amazing! 

We were actually caught in the massive storm... Left sleeping on the floor of the tokyo airport and then a 15 hour bullet train ride! But After 70 hours in transit.

We were met by torou at iiamya, amazing man he is! 

We had four days of the most amazing powder with no one around to steal our first tracks! 

It was all worth it on our first run down powder wave!! 

I would return to maderao again for sure! All the staff at monaile and maderao kogen resort were so helpful and the restaurants and people in maderao were also amazing!

I'd like to thank you again Hisae for all your help and advice in making our journey so accommodating and fantastic!!

Can't wait to visit again in the near future!

6th February 2014  "I would just like  to say that  we had a great time 

All the staff from the lift guys to the staff at the monaile were always helpful and friendly.

If you have a stand at this years snow expo in Sydney i will stop in and say hi to you, Aki and Toru.

Thankyou again  for all your help"

From N.C

 

Mid January 2014 "Madarao was really fun

It is only a short distance from Iiyama (that is soon to get the Hokuriku Shinkansen), making it easy to get to and from by train. It is also close to Nozowa and Togari if you want to change it up and visit another slope for a day trip.

I was lucky because the snow was good when I was there, it snowed every other day - letting me experience the clear skies and views to the Sea of Japan, as well as the fresh powder on the Tree Line runs. With mostly school kids on the slopes during the week, there was plenty of fresh snow on the groomed areas all day too

The hotel rooms were pretty big, all the staff friendly and helpful, and the buffet dinner really good. There were also few restaurants in the resort area too (so you are not stuck at the hotel for food).

Japan Snow Accommodation made it easy to book and I look forward to future snow adventures planned with them

Thanks again"

This was my second stay at Maruni Ryokan and it was excellent. Shino and her family are so welcoming and helpful. The Ryokan is perfectly clean and well located in the village, the food is delicious and the on-site onsen is excellent. I would recommend Maruni to anyone who wants to try the true experience of a traditional family-owned Japanese Ryokan. I hope I can visit again soon.

Thank you for helping me out as always Hisae. Please pass on my thanks to Shino and her family.

Early Jan 2016 

Our ryokan was excellent, the staff were very helpful. 

The onsen was great too, and the local town public onsen were worth visiting also. 

I would recommend Zao onsen to anyone who would like to experience a more traditional Japanese mountain experience and who like a more peaceful town than the busier places like Hakuba. I will go back in the future.

As always your service was great too.

All the best,

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.

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!
