"The owners were very friendly people. 

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Elm Pension and plan to return during March to try snow shoeing as recommended by Toshi-san. 

The meals were big, filling and delicious. 

The room was perfectly heated and the beds comfortable.

Overall a great experience. 

Thank-you very much."

"Owner speaks great English and both he and his wife are very friendly and accommodating!

The room had a great alpine view and was spaciaous enough for our gear. 

Well heated too.

No seats in the room though, so you will prob just sleep there. 

Downstairs has a big tv and dining table to chill out. 

They served up a great French Dinner and breakfast as well."

Early January 2017

We had a wonderful trip thank you. 

Taurus apartments were perfect for our holiday. Hiro is a lovely man & he keeps the property spotless. The apartment was really comfortable & clean. 

It was a bit hard to get used to separating our rubbish, but we had it sorted in the end. The apartments can be noisy. We had a downstairs apartment, with another above us. Unfortunately we had a very noisy guest staying above us for several nights who very disruptive. But that would be my only complaint. 

I can highly recommend Taurus apartments & hope to get back one day soon. Many Thanks,

Carey Menico 

 

"We recently stayed a week in Tsuru Apartment this February 2010 and we liked it a lot.

The location was perfect: a few meters from the Kitanomine ski lift. The one bedroom apartment was cosy, warm, clean, quiet. 

Mr Hiro is a great person. He was very helpful. 

We had diner twice in his small restaurant and enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the food (the salmon with miso sauce was our favorite). 

One tip for coffee-addicted people: bring your own coffee machine or filter, as this was not provided in the kitchen. 

Enjoy your stay at Tsuru and Furano, which is a quiet place to relax, far away from the crowd.

We definitely recommend this place."

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!

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,

Kinta is amazing. We have been twice and both types were fantastic. 

Great snow, lodge is easy walk to slopes, room is spacious with views, spotless and beautifully furnished. Owners are delightful and do everything they can to help you and make you feel at home. The food they serve up is sensational -4 course meals which were delicious. Lovely indoor/ outdoor onsen overlooking the slopes. This is a high quality lodge and is a very relaxing and enjoyable place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone and both times we went we were so impressed with everything. 

Loved it!

My friends and I have just returned from our Japanese ski holiday and I just wanted to let you know that we had an amazing time and also wanted to thank you for all the organisation you did for us before hand.

Our stays at all of the lodges were fantastic.

We were overly impressed by the hospitality, the accommodation and helpfulness of Kinta san at Kinta Naeba and the food they cooked for the evening meals was also amazing.

Thanks again for everything you did to help us have a relaxing holiday.

Early Feb 2017

As on previous occasions everything was wonderful during our stay in Furano. From the very beginning when we arrived at our designated bus stop area in Furano, our lovely host Koitchi was there waiting for us to take us to our accommodation.  He was so helpful that he even picked us up later that evening and drove us to the local supermarket for some groceries. He was so patient waiting for us while we shopped for some supplies.

The house is perfectly set up with two sitting areas and kitchens which suited our group perfectly.The house is also within walking distance to the Kitanomine Gondola each day. There is a lovely coffee house which sells delicious sweets a few doors down the street.

We have stayed at Lodge 10 on previous trips and will continue to book this house anytime we visit Furano.

Booking the house through Japan Snow Accommodation was easy and everything ran smoothly.

Thank you to all parties involved for making our stay so enjoyable!

Cheers,
Rebecca


 

 

Late Jan 2016

I had to email and tell you what an amazing trip to Furano we've had. 

Your service and advice and assistance in preparing this trip was outstanding and I'm telling everyone I know about you. 

The accommodation was superb and please pass onto to the owners that their place is wonderfully equipped, beautiful and more than comfortable for a group or in our case, extended family. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to have a place where we could relax and socialise, cook and have a few drinks with happy kids and happy grandparents all together. You would never get that at a hotel. It is being well maintained by Tatsumi and he was more than helpful when we arrived with explanations, Japanese plugs and a trip into town for groceries. He was very diligent with clearing the steps and path each day of snow and daily rubbish removal. 

We rented out gear from the shop in the kitanomine gondola building. They were fantastic and the gear was great. They let us keep all the gear there overnight and keep our walking shoes there during the day which made the walk back to the lodge easy. I would recommend them. Also the ski school run from the same shop were brilliant with the kids. The free mountain host service booked thru the tourist info office in gondola building is an absolute must and our host was terrific and her guidance around the mountains on the first day gave us the knowledge and confidence to use the entire resort for all standard of skiers and boarders in or family. 

I could go on and mention how fabulously friendly and helpful and lovely the Japanese people are but you'd know that! Also the food!

Anyway, once again thanks and I will continue to recommend you to others. We will definitely be going back and look forward to dealing with you again,

“From the moment I contacted Japan Snow Accommodation about organising our trip to Japan I received nothing but 5 star quality customer service. 

Our land transfers to and from Furano were organised meticulously. 

Once arriving in Furano we were greeted by proficient and helpful staff who ushered us directly to our accommodation. 

The Furano 10 Lodge exceeded our 5 star expectations. The bedrooms are spacious and the living areas (2 of them) more than happily accommodated our group of 8 people. 

Access to the Kitanomine Gondola (main lift) took a comfortable 10 minute walk from the property.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the seamless experience that Hisae and the staff at Japan Snow Accommodation provided for us. I will definitely be asking the team at Japan Snow Accommodation to organise our next trip”.

"The Lodge 10 accommodation was great, everything in the house worked great, was clean and super nice. 

Furano was great for snowboarding, no lift lines, great snow and good facilities on the hill. 

It was definitely the best snow I have ever ridden. 

In the house I might suggest that you have washing machine instructions in English and maybe a coffee machine? But otherwise everything was great."

Thanks  Mike

 

"Furano Lodge 10 was Fantastic. 

Such a beautiful view from the Lodge. 

The Modern well maintained House was very clean, Large, warm, with all modern fittings. 

The Lodge manager was terrific. only a short 5 min walk from the ski runs. 

And Furano had amazing snow fall. 

I will be returning to this holiday spot."

"Furano lodge 10 is a fantastic modern western style accommodation that is perfect for a group or family. 

Close enough to the lifts but far away enough that you have your own private piece of paradise. 

The lodge manager is fantastic and is only too happy to provide assistance where needed. 

I can't wait to stay there again."

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,
Andrew Maher

Kizuna Apartment

 

 

Late December 2015

We had the most wonderful time in Niseko and we enjoyed our stay at Kizuna tremendously! The apartment was spectacular - modern, spacious and very conveniently located. I loved the fact that the elevator opened directly to the apartment and the ensuite bedrooms provided lots of privacy. The kitchen was well equipped and the living and dining area were very spacious. 

I also wanted to mention that the pick up and drop off service by your company was very good. We arrived on the last bus from Chitose close to midnight and your staff was there waiting for us. Same with the day of our departure. Thank you!  

All in all we had a great time and would definitely be back and hopefully get to stay at Kizuna again! Hopefully next time the snow condition 
will be better! This year apparently was the worst in 20 years! It started snowing on the day we left!

Thanks again and please see attached photos.

These are views from the fabulous penthouse at Kizuna. Very stylish and comfortable accommodation that is well located for all the amenities in Niseko. 
 
 
 
As you can see from the trees outside the appartment we had some wonderful falls of fresh powder snow - just what we came for!
