Late January 2017

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

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

All the best,
Andrew Maher

Mid Feb 2017

What a great trip. Fantastic snow. All 3 places we stayed at are amazing. Your organizational skills are to be applauded. Maruken Sanso with Mamoru was a great location with service second to none. Bus transfers to each location was very simple. Chuo Taxis are the way to go – amazing service – on time – every time.

Cannot wait to book again for next year. Keep up the great work.

Mid January 2017

Yes we had a wonderful stay at Maruken Sanso. The staff were friendly and as helpful and hospitable as can be. The breakfasts were delicious and the company in the lodge was excellent. The onsen was a great place to go at the end of a day's skiing, and the village had a lovely atmosphere, with so many interesting places to eat. 

Your service was faultless and friendly. 

Thanks so much.

Mid January 2017

We had an amazing snow trip!  Thanks for organizing the accommodation.  

Marukan San was in a fabulous location, close to the gondala and the main street of Nowzawa Onsen.  The accommodation was clean and comfortable.  The host was extremely courteous and helpful, going out of his way to get ski tickets organized for us every morning.  I loved the Japanese breakfast which were plentiful and filling. One of the best part of the accommodation was the in-house hot bath – fantastic after a day on the slope!  We had public onsens all around us, all ‘free’ to use.  

It would be great if there were instructions in the onsens in English so that we could respectfully comply with local traditions.  

We will definitely be going back to Nowzawa Onsen and hope to stay at the same accommodation!

Warm Regards,
Perri Lim

 

 

 

Late january 2015
 
Our trip was so good!
 


It was very easy to check in even though we were arriving in the middle of the night, the host was lovely
and told us everything we ended to know about the accommodation. Rooms very neat and tidy and one
of our rooms had a great view of the town.
The breakfasts we had included were a great mix of Japanese and western style foods + coffee which
was great. We also had dinner in house one night, cooked by the hosts which was delicious traditional
food.
 

For most of our group this was our second visit to Nozawa Onsen and the snow was much better than
this time so we were all very pleased.


Such a cute little ski village and the accommodation is very close to the lifts (5 min walk). We also made use
of the in-house onsen and had it to ourselves most of the time which was great
Loved staying here and were
grateful for everything the hosts did to help out!

Early January 2016

Thank-you for giving me the opportunity to review on our recent holiday to Japan.

We really did book at the last minute, and we're very happy to find such great accomodation. 'Maruken Sanso' proved to be the perfect cultural introduction & our hosts could not do enough to make us feel welcome.

The meals were fantastic & the in-house onsen was most welcome after a day on the slopes !

The actual resort & village was very quant. We found the skiing & lift coverage most suitable to our level of expertise. Also, all of the mountain staff were really friendly, most speaking some English. Maruken Sanso was only a 5 minute walk to the gondola. 

I also would like to thank-you personally, @ 'japansnowaccomodation.com', for assisting us in booking our holiday. Hisae, you returned both my emails & phone calls. Great customer service 

I have already passed on your contact details to work colleagues & have no hesitation in recommending both your service & Maruken Sanso . All up, a great holiday.

THANK-YOU !
Kate

 

Late December 2015

We have been travelling mainly on and sometimes off to Japan since 2003. We travelled to Honshu, Nagano area, since we had a brilliant trip the year before skiing Nozawa Onsen and Madarao.

We have used Hisae and the team at Japan snow accommodations, which takes a lot of the hard work out of planning the trip. Also we have asked for alternatives and there was a quick answer and good information at all times.

The snow conditions weren’t as good as usual but, but this was put down to the El Nino effect in the Pacific area. We stayed at the Maruken Sanso in Nozawa Onsen; we had been there the year before. The family were just as accommodating as the year before and made everyone in the small lodge welcome. 

This is a very short walk to the main gondola and is good for an early start on a powder morning, not too much walking. They have an onsen bath for the guests and that takes care of the sore muscles. One of the ancient 14 onsen is just down the road, for the old world onsen charm. They have ski storage, hot room for the boots and a workshop for running r repairs.  Another cleaver trick is the houses, hotels and accommodations pump the onsen water on the road, the road is never to Icey to walk on.

Early Jan 2016

We fully enjoyed our stay at The Westn Rusutsu Resort.  The advantage of being able to use facilities of both the resort and the tower make it a fine one stop destination.

After we left Rusutsu we continued travelling around Hokkaido for another couple of weeks, skiing at various other locations..  

Thank you for being prompt in dealing with our booking. 

I attach a video my son made of the trip which features not only Rusutsu but also other locations in Hokkaido.

Mid January 2014. 

My stay at Madarao totally exceeded my expectation.

The accommodation was great, well-heated, absolutely beautiful scenery, it was comfortable and not at all crowded. Naoko made our stay so lovely and enjoyable. She was so hospitable, friendly and the food she made was top quality.

I would have to say that it was the best all-round accommodation, meals and service that I received my entire trip in Japan.

The mountain was amazing, it looked beautiful and I had so much fun snowboarding on the slopes.

I would most definitely stay at Madarao Alpbach again, and am hoping to do so soon!

Below are some photos from my trip

Mid February 2014 "Accomadation was amazing at Alpbach....It made our trip. 

The owners and their dog are the best...amazing food and location. Honestly had the best time... 

Your help was awesome too.....We will be back next year! Thanks for all your help!"

Mid January 2014 "We had such a fantastic time at Alp Bach. Naoko and Ukihiro are such wonderful people. 

They made us feel like we were part of their family. Our stay there is a beautiful memory. We had fresh snow most days. And had some fun times with other Japanese families too.

Thanks for your support and concern for our arrangements. We are so lucky to have you as our agent. Thankyou for your professional and prompt service."

Luke

 

Mid January 2013  "We ended up being the only guest through most of our stay meaning we felt like we were living in a big house with an open fireplace and views of the ski hill. 

Access to the ski hill was a 50m walk over the road to strap in. At the end of the day the ski out was similar with a short walk over a car park to get home. 

We ended up having dinners at the place for 2000 yen and they were massive four coarse meals so we actually asked for a little bit less food. The food was fantastic and the breakfast were great. The owner family were great and we met the whole family, even the dog who was very friendly. I am pretty confident in saying in the 5 trips to Japan visiting over a dozen major ski destinations in Japan our group was probably the most relaxed and enjoyed there stay at the Alp Bach the most. Normally as a group we look for new places to ski but as a group we are all talking about when we can get back to Madarao. So thanks for the recommendation and I thought you would like to know."

Shiga Kogen Prince Hotel

 

Mid February 2014  

Shiga was wonderful.  We had forgotten just how good it is.  Plenty of variety, good facilities and great snow.

Prince west was very good.  It’s location is excellent.  Long, enjoyable runs right on our doorstep.  We like to get out early and enjoy the snow while it is still in pristine condition.  Prince was perfect for this.

We couldn’t fault the rooms, staff were friendly and helpful.  The bed and breakfast rate was excellent value.   View from our twin room was wonderful (attached photo).  We particularly enjoyed the breakfast arrangement.  Everything from traditional Japanese to cooked western to fruit and yoghurt.

Only negative comment was the dinner arrangement.  Dinner in the hotel was expensive (4,000 yen pp fixed price), and didn’t look that inviting.  We had dinner next door at the Chinese restaurant or walked into Ichinose.  The walk only took about 10 minutes and was actually quite enjoyable.

We certainly plan to return, and will probably stay at Prince West again.  I will be in touch later in the year to get things organised.    I have already recommended the hotel to a couple of people.

Thank you for all your help and advice with the holiday, we are already looking forward to next year’s trip.

One Happy Family

 

January 2014

We had a another terrific holiday skiing in Japan- we all enjoyed it very much.


Shiga Kogen and Nozawa are, as you will be aware, very different and so there were mixed opinions within the family as to which place was best.

Some of us enjoyed Shiga Kogen best as the quality of the snow was great (we had some lovely powder snow while we were there) and there was good access to a large range of different ski areas.  

The rooms at the Prince Hotel (East) were comfortable and had a wonderful view onto the slopes and the hotel is absolutely ski in- ski out. The reception staff spoke reasonable english and were very helpful. The lack of internet in the rooms meant that all the guests congregated in the lobby, which was not particularly comfortable or atmospheric, to get wifi access in the late afternoon/evening, at which time the internet became painfully slow.

The hotel food was very nice but very expensive, particularly given that we were travelling with children.  The isolation of the hotel meant that there was no other place nearby to visit easily.  We were lucky to have a hire car which meant that we could drive to Ichinose for dinner, but it would have been very frustrating (& expensive!) had we not been able to do so as (inter-resort buses did not seem very frequent).

The main criticism of Prince Hotel would be the lack of apres ski activites (no café for a snack, no nice communal gathering area, no easy access to internet).  For this reason, if I were staying for any length of time at Shiga Kogen without transport, I might consider accommodation in one of the village resorts.

So, in my view, Shiga Kogen was best for the skiing, and Nozawa was best for the all-round experience. Thank you for your assistance in finding suitable accommodation for us. 

I have attached a few of photographs of our  two are of my son in the powder at Shiga Kogen.

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

Nozawa House 3 bedroom guest reviews

Nozawa House 3 bedroom

 

"We had two families (4 adults 5 children) stay at Nozawa House in the first week of April 2012.

The location is great with everything being walking distance, and I think it would be even better earlier in the ski season when you can ski back directly to the house. Because we were there pretty much in spring, the road had just been cleared and also the Hikage Gondola was no longer running. Still, Gabriel our host was very helpful in providing all of us a lift every morning to the main gondola that was still running so there was plenty of fresh snow and good skiing.

There was a starter food pack when we first arrived which was handy indeed but Gabriel also took us to the supermarket to get more supplies and provided good advice on restaurants and the local onsens.

As for the house itself, it suited our families very well. The kids loved being together in the bunk room. We preferred the very roomy Japanese style room and our friends slept in the bedroom on the top floor. The lounge is cozy, the dining area has stunning views and the selection of movies available is endless. The place is highly recommended."
