Niseko Northern Resort A'nupuri

 

Late January 2014 - "This is a true ski in ski out location"

"My husband and I have recently returned from a Ski Holiday in Japan staying at Niseko Northern Resort Annupuri.  This is a true ski in ski out location and our room was very clean and comfortable. 

The food was of a high standard catering for both Western and Japanese tastes and the facilities on offer were great including the laundry, reading room and bathing facilities.  The staff were friendly and very helpful and this was greatly appreciated especially as our Japanese is virtually nonexistent.  The skiing and snow conditions were wonderful.  This was our fourth visit to Japan and the snow is always great.

Our accommodation was booked through japansnowaccommodation.com and we cannot speak highly enough of this company.  They were extremely helpful and their prompt replies to all our emails  were amazing.  Unfortunately I was injured whilst on our trip and we needed to cancel our last 2 nights at the resort.  Japansnow accommodation handled this with no hesitation and, as we were unable to speak the Japanese language, their assistance was invaluable and very much appreciated.  They organized the refund in a very prompt and efficient manner. We are certainly rebooking with this company next year and highly recommend their services."

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.

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
 
 
 
 
Late Feb 2016

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!

Your service was great, we had never been to Japan before and explained what type of town we were after and it was exactly what we were after. you communication through the whole booking process was excellent. 

Kawamotoya Ryokan was a great place to stay, the room had a wonderful view of the valley and was a nice walk to the bottom of the ski hill. The food and staff were also very good, highly recommended.

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"

Book at Hotel Stelle Belle

 

Mid January 2014 "The accommodation: rooms warm and spacious , towel changed daily, beds every other day, clean, 24 hr Japanese bath was nice

No lobby for guests to hang out

No Wifi in the rooms

Service: lovely customer service, helpful,

wished more frequent trips to and from Hakuba Iimori .

Breakfast: Ok, was told 7:30-8:15, to my opinion too limited for a holiday hotel where guest may wish to sleep in a bit & then have breakfast

Distance: to Hakuba Guryu, walking

Beautiful area

Japan snow staff: very helpful , thank you"

Regards

Nadia

 

"We stay there a full week early march. We wish to recommand this hotel for the location as you can walk and reach the "escal plaza" in 5 Minutes (starting point of the ski activity.)

No need to worry about shuttle service schedule etc...free to ski.

But we wish also to point out that Konno San, His wife and THE ALL team are extremely kind, helpfull and attentive to all your needs.(pick you up at the bus station, bring you somewhere if you need etc...)

By the way food is excellent (either Japanese or Western)and the hotel is very calm and peacefull day and night and perfectly clean, warm.

The basement is equiped with lockers for skying equipment and the change room is of course heated)

The last but not the least and maybe THE point the quality of snow in Hakuba Goryu is there EXCEPTIONAL and very stable in quality (far different from Europe). A nice place."

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

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 .

THE HOTEL LOCATION DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER ,SET IN THE MOUNTAINS AND SHORT WALK TO THE LIFT AND GONDOLA.

THE FOOD WAS AMAZING EVERY NIGHT AFTER A BIG DAY ON THE SNOW  YOU SAT DOWN TO A BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED 5 COURSE DINNER,BREAKFAST WAS GOOD AS WELL AS IT WAS AN ALL YOU COULD EAT BUFFET.

HOTEL WAS KEPT CLEAN AND ROOMS WERE CLEAN EVERYDAY .

THE HOTEL ONSEN WAS GREAT TO SOOTH TIRED LEGS.

THE MOUNTAIN WAS GREAT HAD PLENTY OF SNOW ,I BOOKED BACKCOUNTRY TOURS WITH SIMON POWDER GUIDES.

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!

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.

"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."

"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.

"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."

"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!"

Pension Ringojam guest reviews

 
 
 
 
 
Late December 2013, Ben and I absolutely loved Pension Ringojam.

Osamu & Eiko Otaka were wonderful hosts and Pension Ringojam had a very homely feel.

We plan to go back as soon as we can and if possible we will stay at Pension Ringojam again. 

Highlights were a traditional Nabe dinner and spending time practising our Japanese with the other guests.

Madarao Ski Resort was definitely one of our favourites - probably up with Cortina (or better), but we were a little early for the best snow. Osamu recommended mid Jan-mid Feb. It was still a great mountain and the midnight skiing on New Year's Eve was pretty special. 

Really good challenging runs and great tree skiing opportunities.

Thanks 
Leith Macintosh
