Fox Alley guest reviews

Fox Alley

 

Early February 2014  Madarao is a great Resort, it has everything from good beginner runs, thru blues to steeps and unlike most other resorts, they have a number of treed areas open for skiing. 

We virtually skied these areas all week and the snow was still great when we left. Admittedly it did snow all week and kept things topped up.There are no lift lines mid week and certainly not crowded even on weekends, I don't know how Madarao has kept out of the spotlight so long. (Don't tell too many people)

Fox Alley was good accommodation, the owners were very helpful and friendly, they provided "western style" breakfast and a traditional Japanese  meal when we stayed in for dinner. Our rooms were "western style" beds and bathroom / toilet very clean and comfortable. Both hosts spoke quite good English and the woman is attending classes to improve further. ( not really necessary in my opinion but she is very keen to learn, she helped my Japanese and I her English) 

They dropped me at the station in Iiyama when I left and drove us to restaurants a couple of nights. I'm not sure they could do the restaurant bit for everyone if they had more guests.

The only downside to Fox Alley is it's location, access to the lifts is OK, a short (2/3 min) walk in the morning and a ski down to the lifts, and same getting back, a short ski /skate and short walk. It is however, a 20 min walk to get to the restaurants (which are excellent by the way) but a bit of a drag if it's a windy , snowy night. All things considered though not a bad choice, I would certainly stay there again, we had fantastic week.

The service from JSA was first class you answered all my e-mails and questions promptly and came up with accommodation that satisfied my needs, you offered some general advice about what to expect in these less frequented locations. 

Below are some images of our trip.

Tsuru Apartments

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

We definitely recommend this place."

Hotel Schanze

 

We (four of us) spent only a few nights at Petit Schanze and wished we were able stay more.

It is a family owned and run hotel that makes you feel like you are part of the family when you stay there. The food was beautiful and plentiful and very healthy. 

If we get the chance to go back to Tsugaike we would have no hesitation in staying at Petit Schanze again and again.

It is a 5 min gentle walk to/from ski-slopes, so location quite good."

By Ian

 

Tuesday, 08 March 2011  "It was amazing!!!! 

We are from Australia and my girlfriend is doing the season on the lift at Tsugaike so Dad and I went over for a visit. 

It was amazing and i wish i could have stayed longer. The accommodation is not amazing but it is very nice though and it is small so you get a more personal experience. 

We stayed in a Western style room with 4 beds and an en suite which were very comfortable. 

The owners also cook all the amazing homemade food that is served for Breakfast and Dinner each day of your stay. 

I would rate my experience 10 out of 10 and when i go back to Japan i will stay there again!"

"The owners were very friendly people. 

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

The meals were big, filling and delicious. 

The room was perfectly heated and the beds comfortable.

Overall a great experience. 

Thank-you very much."

By Aimee

 

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

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

Well heated too.

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

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

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

Address Nozawa guest review

 


Address Nozawa

 

January 2014  "Nozawa has a fabulous village atmosphere with loads of restaurants, shops and onsens and has lots of charm

There are a lot more western skiers which makes it a bit more crowded & touristy but perhaps that is the price you pay if you want the apres ski activities.  

Our accommodation at Address Nozawa was great- comfortable, stylish and well equipped.  The apartment-style of the rooms, though not particularly big, were much easier for us, especially with children.  

The breakfast provisions provided by the hotel were great too.  

The staff were friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay here.  

The downside was that we had a bit of a walk to get to the slopes, but this was not a big problem as we left our equipment in lockers near the gondola.  The skiing was fun though for a stronger skier it could be less rewarding if the snow on the lower slopes was not really good, as this was where a number of the advanced runs finished. When we were there, the weather had been quite warm and the snow quality was best at the top of the mountain, where the green and red runs were.

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 my my sons at Nozawa (one on the slopes and the other outside our accommodation).

"we stayed at address nozawa last week of dec and we enjoyed our stay very much. 

it is located in a side street just off the main road and close to all the food in the centre of town. it is a 5min walk to the moving walkway and it's a good idea to rent the skis from the base of the slopes so you don't have to carry the skis and walk with the boots all the way up hill(you can leave it there overnight as well). we were 2 pax and the rooms are very decent size for japan. there is a small living room area with a kitchenette and the bathroom is sufficient and it's always better to have an attached rather than to have to share. 

the fridge is stocked every 2-3 days with a breakfast pack with includes eggs, milk, juice, bread, ham, sausages... i'm not big on cooking on my holiday but i think it'll be good for families."

By Pham

 

"We recently stayed at Address Nozawa in the Red Room. 

The staff were very friendly and helpful. the room was great and we had fresh bread, eggs and juice for breakfast provided by the hotel every morning. 

There was free wi-fi and a games room. T

he location of Address Nozawa was great close to all the restaurants not far to the ski lift (its a hard up hill slog in the morning but of an afternoon it is all down hill). 

I would highly recommend staying here."

Lodge Bergland guest reviews

 

Lodge Bergland

 

I stayed for 5 nights at Lodge Bergland, Madarao Mountain in late January 2014. 

Hisae from Japan Snow Accommodation arranged my reservation with Lodge Bergland and provided detailed information on Madarao Mountain (such as how to to/from Madarao and facilities available in Madarao) in addition to details about Lodge Bergland. Hisae was very prompt in responding to my various requests for quotes on accommodation and helped me greatly in finding accommodation in Madarao that ticked all the boxes at the right price for a solo traveller.

My stay at Lodge Bergland was one of the highlights of my journey around Japan – it was a true cultural exchange which has left me with many happy memories. The owners of the lodge are extremely welcoming and generous – Mr Yamada even arranged a day trip to Myoko Kogen and spent the day skiing with me. The size of my room was very large with two very comfortable single western style beds and a small bathroom including toilet and shower.

A gender separated bath was also available downstairs in the afternoon/evening to ease the tired muscles at the end of the day. The breakfasts were amazing with something different each day. The location of Lodge Bergland is quite good within close proximity to a convenience store and a short walk up to the ski area entrance. In summary, Lodge Bergland offers excellent hospitality at the right price with great value bonuses such as discounted lift tickets, ski hire and waxing.

The ski area is amazing on a powder day. Many of the courses are ungroomed with plenty of opportunity for awesome deep powdery light snow and you can challenge your skills in the tree run areas. There is also a pretty awesome view from the top of the mountain.

There are plenty of on mountain dining options at very reasonable prices. Off mountain, there are a few convenience stores and small restaurants in addition to the Madarao Kogen Hotel offering both Japanese and Western style food. Take your time to find the smaller restaurants and you will be rewarded with friendly service and delicious food. 

Below are some photo's from my trip

Cheers

Late December 2013 "My stay was very nice!

Concerning the mountain, the snow was very good! There was just a few lifts which weren’t operating... i don’t know why, but still it was nice.

The lodge was very nice and comfortable. The host was very kind and helpful! i would definitly recommand this place. 

I don’t have pictures of the hotel, but I attached a few pictures of the ski station. 

Thanks for your help, everything was fine" 

From Martin N

 

 

"We had stayed in NozawaOnsen for 3 days prior to arriving in Madarao. 

The feel of Madarao town is quite different from Nozawa Onsen (more european style at MK compared to traditional village style at NO). 

We found the Lodge Bergland a very enjoyable stay with the owners being very helpful. 

Rooms were clean, spacious and nicely heated. Im not sure if double beds are available but we were given singles (not that we had any issue with that). 

The lodge offers ski hire at far cheaper price than outside and of acceptable quality. 

The breakfast was typical of the lodges we stayed at and was very nice. 

It takes approx 5min to walk from the chairlift to the lodge (in ski boots). The ski field is much smaller than NO but still very enjoyable (especially the off piste skiing in the trees). 

We would definitely go back to stay at Lodge Bergland given the chance."

By James M

 

January 2013 "I had a great trip thank you for your help and recommendation. 

Lodge Bergland is a great place to stay for your time at Madarao kogen. A warm and homely place with a very friendly and accommodating owner, very attentive and ensured that my stay was a great experience willing to help with lift tickets and transport to local restaurants and even to the mountain. 

The room was extremely warm and comfortable and of good size. Great onsen downstairs. I will definitely Return on future visits."

By A.W

 

"Thank you so much Mr. And Mrs. Yamada, Our stay at your lodge was just awesome. 

The food was excellent, the hospitality was exceptional, and your kindness to our group was SUPERB! 

Thank you for the ski lessons and your lovely lodge accommodations. Much Aloha"
