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.

We had an amazing experience in niseko and had a great time staying at tabi no kosaten. The place was really cozy and clean. Our hosts were very accommodating and helpfuln providing information about places to eat,Ski rental etc. Breakfast was good too.  A nice placeTo stay if you wish to feel at home in Niseko.

Late January 2016

We had a really nice stay in Hokkaido and also it was really nice to stay at Tabi No Kosaten, very, very nice, kind and helpful people who run the Lodge :) 

Hopefully I can be back soon.

Best regards,
Sophie
 

 

"Run by a delightful couple called Jijyo and Kyoko who have a baby son called Hayato - they took really good care of us 

- everything from hiring equipment, transporting us to the gondola lift and taking us to onsen. 

Breakfast was a good balance and they were extremely hospitable throughout our stay there. 

A really special place to be when you're in Niseko, and a peace of mind."

By Tim

 

"Our stay at the Niseko lodge Tabi No Kosaten was nothing short of excellent.. 

Our hosts gave good down to earth accommodation showing us all the good spots to eat, drink and play also giving us advice on our futher japan travels.. 

location is a bit out maybe 10 minute walk to main part of hirafu (good chance to soba up a little) and like 5 minutes to a bus stop that takes you in and drops you off.. its got my vote"

Early January 2015

My travel mates and I had a spectacular time at Woody House Kazamidori. Midori was delightful and such a sweet host: She and her husband went out of their way to pick us up and drop us off, give us directions and recommendations, and make the most incredible breakfasts! The entire house was cozy and comfortable, including the bedrooms and baths. Woody House Kazamidori was truly our favorite place that we stayed in Japan. We hope to go back and stay there again!

Myoko was also amazing - we had some of the best skiing of our lives at Akakura Kanko. On-mountain and side-country both offered great woods skiing, and it hardly stopped snowing our whole time there! We also took a side trip to see the Snow Monkeys - well worth it. We will definitely go back to Myoko to continue exploring amazing skiing.

We thank you so much for providing great recommendations, and for helping coordinate this wonderful experience. Your promptcommunication helped us out tremendously as we planned our trip.


Thanks again - until next time!

Shikinoyado Kawahiro Guest Reviews

 

 

 

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.

Late January 2017

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,
Marita 
 
 
Early January 2015

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."

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.

Regards,Tanaporn
 

 

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

Mid February 2014  

Trip was great, thanks very much. I think we lucked into the best week of the season for snowfall. No trouble with your service, found it excellent.

Seisenso was OK. It was run by a very nice woman and she was very helpful.

The pension itself though is quite old and could do with a bit of a renovation. 

There are only two or three western style toilets in the whole building.

The common area is very small and not heated. 

Drying room was too small for the number of people who needed to use it.

Location was good - very central in the town.


The included breakfast was good - good variety of japanese/western options.


Onsen was good.

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

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,

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

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.

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

Late February 2015

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"

Early January 2017

We were a group of 4 families comprising 15 people, staying at Naeba Prince hotel during 4th – 9th January, 2017. 

We were glad that we booked the rooms with Japan Snow Accommodation early since we checked later there had no room available for the period we stayed. 

We had a great time over there. The snow even could not be compared to that in Hokkaido however was considered good. The greatest thing above all was it was very convenient. Ski lockers were just at the ground floor of our hotel rooms and one of ski lifts was very very close just next to the hotel door. We will definitely go there again.

Best wishes,
Anchalee

 
 
Early January 2017

We love the hotel room and facilities. There are so many restaurants to choice. The slope and gondola is just next to the hotel (building 2). Just like ski in ski out. Kids playground is not far and fun for kids. The coupon system is good. We can use with many restaurants. However there is just one point l donot like. The Onsen is too small. We had a good time there and will seek a chance to go back.

Kiatibut 
 
 
Mid December 2015

We were really disappointed with the snow condition when we were at Naeba in December, 2015. Greatest disappointment was that the Dragondola was not operating during our stay and most of the run at Naeba were closed due to lack of snow. If we have not paid for the accommodation, we would probably go to other ski resort. 

Except for the snow condition, the other aspect are all up to our expectation, especially your service.
