Hakkoda Resort Hotel guest reviews

 

 

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
Mark
 

 

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

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.

FIRSTLY I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A BIG THANKS TO THE STAFF AT HAKKODA RESORT HOTEL THEY WERE AMAZING,SPECIAL THANKS TO NARITA ,MANUMI AND CON .

HOTEL WAS KEPT CLEAN AND ROOMS WERE CLEAN EVERYDAY .

THE HOTEL ONSEN WAS GREAT TO SOOTH TIRED LEGS.

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!

Late January 2015

I had the most wonderful time with your crew at Hakkoda Hotel Resort.  Lodging very comfortable and convenient and the food and people most amazing!  I am planning on returning next year and probably for the next several years.  

Thank you.

That’s me having fun in Hakkoda. (in the pic below)

My husband and I had a great time and in fact will soon be booking again for next year.

The Hakkoda Resort Hotel is very nice and friendly and the food was outstanding. The staff could not be more helpful.

We loved our stay at Hakkoda Resort Hotel.

We stayed in a western room which was spacious & very comfortable.

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!

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. 

All in the staff was very nice and helpful, the room was nice, and the food was really great. 

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!"

Nozawa - amazing snow - but getting too crowded - good mix of terrain - plenty of nightlife (but hard to get into places due to number of tourists). 

Tokawaya - amazing hotel - amazing staff - amazing service and food (but don't tell anyone as we want to make sure we can stay there again next time)!

Your service - very good - easy process to book - good options presented for our budget. No complaints!

Early January 2015

I can’t thank you enough for your assistance with my recent trip to Japan! 

From the first email and all through the process you were professional, helpful and informative. You found us the perfect hotels in the best locations and you saved us by finding a driver when I called you after we missed our train!

I have already recommended you and your excellent service to my friends who will be visiting Japan this coming summer.

Thanks again and best regards,

Robert Laker







 

Mid January 2015

I just want to thank you for all your help with the booking and to let you know that we really enjoyed our stay at Tokiwaya, it was a real treat.

Regards
Diana

 

 

Late February 2014

I had a great week at Nozawa Onsen

The snow was great and the mountain had enough challenging terrain to keep
it fun. To our relief, they didn't groom every run to within an inch of
their life like they do at Shiga Kogen and they didn't make a huge fuss
about going out of bounds and doing tree runs. The terrain is varied
enough that you could enjoy the week without getting bored.

Tokiwaya ryokan was very special. The owner/Manager, whose name I've
unfortunately forgotten, went out of his way to help and tried very hard
with his English. His unassuming friendly politeness was sriking, even in
Japan. 

We loved the very traditional restaurant and onsen and the location was central to everything.

The traditional village layout of Nozawa really makes you feel like you're
in Japan. I'd rate it way above most Japanese ski resorts I've visited.

Only negative is that there are already lots of Australians visiting
(although fortunately not working there on lifts etc like Niseko) and it
became incredibly crowded on weekends when Japanese from Tokyo and Nagoya
arrived.

In terms of the booking it went smoothly and they knew all about me when I
arrived.

Regards
Steve Huntsman

 

Early February 2014  

Our stay at Tokiwaya Ryokan was a amazing experience of Japanese culture and hospitality. 

The breakfasts and dinners in the Tokiwaya restaurant consisted of traditional Japanese cuisine and would rival the Tetsuya Restaurant in Sydney.

The service was excellent and the rooms were clean. Only criticism is the lack of cupboard space in the room. 

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Tokiwaya Ryokan for the second year in a row and hopefully we will get a chance to go back again.

Japan Snow Accommodation's service was very professional and their advice was helpfully.

Appi Grand Villa 3 guest reviews

 
Late January 2017

Stayed at Appi Grand Villa 3 for 4 days in Jan 2017.

This hotel is quite big ( about 13 floors ) comfortable, but not over the top. Facilities are good, including Onsen and staff very friendly and helpful,you could get away with little or no Japanese language as most spoke some English.Virtually ski in ski out, just a 2 minute walk before you can ski down to the lift and you can ski back to the door.This hotel is a little way from the main Appi Grand Hotel where you can use their facilities with no additional cost but there is a regular free shuttle around the resort so you can access the main area quite easily.

Advanced runs are confined to the top part of the mountain, all with various lengths of green to get back onto the lifts. The most challenging run, with a tree run thru the middle of a split ungroomed run, is short  and has a long green run to access and even longer green back to the lift. If you are looking to be challenged all day I'd suggest this is not the mountain for you, if you like a bit of black and are happy with a good bit of cruising reds (our blue) and greens, then Appi would suit just fine.I travelled from Haneda airport to Morioka by train (Via Tokyo) and bus from Morioka station, I had no delays but recommend checking connections, to avoid waiting time.

Hisae at Japan snow accommodation organised all my accommodations in her usual friendly and efficient manner, re arranging dates to work in with my itinerary as we went, also picking up the deals with meals and lift ticket inclusions that were available. Hisae has organised my Japan trips for a number of years now and I will continue to use Japan Snow Accommodation in the future.

Late January 2015

Hisae (Japan Snow Accommodation booking Agent) was very easy to communicate with, very organised and kept me up to date. The whole booking process flowed very smoothly and I was really happy with the service.I would definitely use Japan Snow Accomodation again.

My week long stay at Appi Grand Villa 3 was wonderful. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much bother.

The main gondola is only a short ski away.

The hotel rooms are big by Japanese standards and had a great view over the surrounding mountains. 

The buffet breakfast consists of Japanese or continental selections and there is plenty of variety.

Lockable ski lockers for your ski gear next to the mountain exit on the ground floor.

There is a large onsen in the basement.

There are regular shuttle buses to transport you to the other hotels in the Appi resort complex or back to Morioka. Appi is only a sort bus or train ride from morioka( about 1 hour).

Appi resort also run a day trip to Shimokura resort on Fridays.

I would definitely recommend a visit - a small resort with only 3 lifts and hardly any skiers.

The snow we had the day we visited was some of the best i have ever skied in Japan.It was a great day of skiing at a tiny resort. Appi is a good sized resort and has some good steep runs and long runs.It takes a few days to explore properly.

We got loads of snow while we were there,I really enjoyed my visit to Appi.

Late January 2015

We had a wonderful trip!

The room was clean and big. 

Food was very good.

Steak and crab (buffet restaurant) was fresh and yummy.

Beef (まえさわぎゅう) served at Korean BBQ was high-quality. 

Wide slopes and non crowed (even holiday).  

Everyone can find the slopes that best suit their level.The photo is still prepared when it is ready we will send you.

Best, YingChe

Late Feb 2017

My son previously had a ski accident and after two hours of travel to Nozawa he really needed to rest. Sam at Shikinoyado was very helpful and able to accommodate us straight away, which I appreciated very much. The location is excellent for skiers so that you don’t need to walk around the hilly town in ski boots.

Our time in Nazawo onsen was fantastic. Kawahiro was great and the total Japanese immersion that we wanted. A bonus was that it is located by the gondola. 

Thanks,

We LOVED Nozawa. Love the ski in ski out accommodation. The only downside of Kawahiro is the smoking in the foyer which can travel up to the rooms. Next time we will request 100% non smoking.

We prefered the wider runs as 3 of us board and the others ski. This was only the second time the kids have skied and they did 10 days straight which was impressive. I would like to book 3 of them in for a lesson on our first day this next time. We really enjoyed the cultural experience when we travel. 

Loved Tokyo too as you can see we took kids to zoo and we also went to the sumo tournament which we all throughly enjoyed.

We flew direct with jetstar last time and stayed overnight at the Airport hotel and then traveled the following day which was great.  

Next year we were thinking 5 days skiing in one place and 5 days skiing in another then back toward Tokyo for 2-3 days before heading home. Would love to see the Geisha museum,  Hiroshima and anything else you recommend. Thanks in advance for next year..

Early January 2015

Kawahiro could not be closer to the Nagasaka Gondola (a few metres?).Definitely ski in and ski out and it made it very easy for our family to come in from the slopes whenever and head out skiing multiple times throughout the day if needed.

It is further from the main street for restaurant dinners though and the walk back up is steep-ish and can feel long if it is snowing heavily and you are trudging up with a full belly. We have tried the onsite restaurant set dinner (hot pot) and it was yummy but probably better for adults who can appreciate the large and complicated array of dishes, rather than kids (we asked for the more basic katsu don for the boys). Japanese breakfast is included (we also had cornflakes and milk with ours - possibly only included for foreigners?), which was a great novelty at the start but there were days when we probably just felt like toast! :)

The place is very traditional Japanese with tatami mats that can take some getting used to if you prefer softer beds. There is a clean and spacious onsen on site and while we also explored the village onsens, the onsite onsen (open from 4-10pm) made it very convenient if we didn't feel like heading out till dinner.

If you are looking for a ski lodge then this is not the place for you as other than the onsen and a smoking area on the ground floor, there is really no common areas to hang out in other than your actual room. Our room was a relatively spacious one for our family of 5 on the 3rd floor (the stairs will keep you fit!). Bathrooms are shared and the staff will give you a daily supply of hot water thermos for making tea etc.

This last one is looking out from our window!

Your service - top notch and smooth as usual. We will contact you next time we are in Japan again. :)

Nozawa the resort - even better than last time as there was more snow and lifts open (we were spring skiing in late March on our first visit). Hope this helps. :)

Cheers Mel


 

 

"Was honestly one of the best holidays I have ever had!

A perfect mix of a new exciting cultural experience, and some of the best powder I have ever ridden!!!!!

Accommodation was great, Authentic Japanese accomodation, within meters of main Nozawa gondola. Nice clean accomodation. Authentic rooms (small, with futon beds).

Breakfast authenic Japanese (takes some getting used to, but proivdes plenty of energy for big day on the slopes!).

Extremely close to nagasaka gondola, and 10min walk down hill to town.

Shared onsen bathroom (no private showers, again takes bit of getting used to, but the heat and healing of onsen water is well worth it!).

Good accomodation for the price. ). Already saving the pennies for a trip back there next year"

"Traditional ryokan that was great to experience, 1 minute form the chairlift, 

very traditional food( may not want to eat it everday), tatami room (being a western person I would have liked a seat)but it was all part of it."
