We enjoyed the Skiing but the Semi Onsen  was fabulous. The staff looked after our every need and they were delightful the best Japanese experience. 

If they wish to improve on an already great experience adding a dedicated shuttle bus with a bit more flexibility would make just that much better.Would most certainly go back.

Thank you for the work you put in to make that happen.

Kind regards

Late January 2017

It was our first time staying at a ryokan and we loved  the Japanese experience at Semi Onsen. The rotenburo was my favourite and was simply beautiful. Often, I had it all to myself. The local ladies and other Japanese visitors who visited the onsen were so friendly, that I finally got some much needed Japanese practice.  We stayed in a western twin room that was immaculately clean, quite spacious and comfortable. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The meals were Japanese style with many, many beautifully prepared, delicious courses.

Geto has been amazing and I think the best powder day I've ever had. Great mountain and great accom with the food a real highlight. Can you please pass on our thanks to the wonderful staff that have taken care of us at Semi Onsen. They are so nice and our stay has been beautiful.

Nakajimaya Ryokan guest review

 

 

 

Late Feb 2017

We had a fantastic time.  The hosts at Nakajimaya were really nice, and the breakfast was a great combination of authentic Japanese food with excellent flavor.  We also really like Nozawa: the hot springs are a necessary cultural experience for anyone wanting to understand these rural mountain towns, and the resort has the best off piste skiing that we're done in Japan.

Overall, great.  We'll totally come back in a couple years!

Our trip was great, we enjoyed the resort, easy access, hiring the equipment was effortless, the runs were fabulous.The ryokan was good, very welcoming and so helpful. Apart from the breakfast, everything was enjoyable. I suppose we had such wonderful Japanese breakfast everywhere else, we were expecting better than what was served.

Thank you for your service, it was perfect.

Mid Jan 2016

Your service is excellent. Whithout you, I would have been unable to find an accomodation in this peak period.

The accomodation was great and the owner of the Ryokan very friendly. 

We loved the village too, and the dosijin worth to be seen, really impressive and interesting (and you can have some sake shots on the slopes !). 

The ski lift were not too crowded, althought it was the aussie's holiday. This is a really good point.

I was disapointed by the snow coverage, a lot of bottom slopes were closed...I'm use to in europ, bad luck in Japan. I'm an expert backcountry skier, Nozawa lacks of steep run, and the space between trees is not sufficient in the forest to ski in (except on the side of Hikage gondola, acess by first station of the other gondola). Some nice runs too from the skyline on both sides. But many trees...

Thanks again Hisae, I will certainly take your advice for my next season in Japan !

Mid Jan 2016

Thank you so much for arranging such beautiful, picturesque, cultural and comfortable accommodation at such a good price (at the last minute) in such a fabulous location!  The entire town is perfection; beautiful and ancient and culturally rich and an absolute joy to visit.  

The walk to and from our accommodation each day was always a highlight, we absolutely loved the fire festival, and even though the snow was average it was nonetheless one of the best holidays I've ever been on.

The accommodation itself was fantastic, the food was absolutely outstanding, but by far the highlight were the staff.  Please send a very special thank you to our hostess (I'm so sorry I've forgotten her name!).  Nothing was too much trouble, and all the staff went above and beyond to help us silly Aussies to understand and fully appreciate their town.

We have been raving about the trip for months now, recommend the village, the accommodation and of course your services to anyone who will listen, and are already plotting to go back.

Thank you Hisae for making our trip wonderful!

Kind regards,

Melanie

We had a wonderful trip. Nakajimaya Ryokan was exactly what we wanted. It is a beautifully run, traditional ryokan serving wonderful food. It is clean, comfortable and convenient for skiers moving to and from the peaks of Nozawa Onsen. We hope we can return some time soon. 

Best wishes,

Late Dec 2015

We loved staying at Nakajimaya Ryokan and experiencing a traditional Japanese Inn. Yukiko, her family and staff were all exceptionally kind and helpful, always giving us good advice and explaining Japanese customs when necessary. Our rooms were both quiet and spacious with plenty of room for the family to relax at the end of the day. It was a real draw card having a private onsen within the ryokan and we made good use of this everyday.

Nozawa is a gorgeous village with many restaurants and bars, we were able to find a different place to eat every night and also enjoyed a superb meal at the Nakajimaya Ryokan as well. We will definitely be going back there.

We loved our holiday in Japan.

Thanks you for booking us into Nakajimaya Ryokan.

We had an amazing family experience and loved the Ryokan.

The family were fantastic hosts and very helpful.

We would love to stay there again.

Certainly the walk to and from the ski hill through the village streets was enjoyable every day and we liked being a bit out of the busy areas.

I have attached a few photos from our stay to show you!

So thanks so much for looking after us!

Cheers,

Early January 2015


Just wanted to let you know that our Nozawa Onsen trip was a big success and we all had an excellent stay at the Nakajimaya Ryokan.

The hosts at the Ryokan were always friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome.

Please pass on our thanks to them.

Getting to the snow via Shinkansen, local train and bus was stress free and like everything else in Japan, was on time and schedule. 

And the skiing was superb.

Hopefully we’ll do it again next year.

Thanks

Attached are the happy customers.

Mid January 2014  

We had a wonderful time at Nozawa Onsen thankyou

Your service was wonderful , esp finding something so perfect for us at relatively late notice., at a busy time of year.

We really loved Nakajimaya Ryokan

Loved the traditional nature of it and being exposed to other Japanese travellers and staff as well , rather than the 1st lodge we stayed at for the first 3 days which was great but not especially Japanese.

The lady in charge was absolutely beautiful to us and so kind and helpful- she was gorgeous.

The food was amazing and we loved the exposure to the traditional dishes and table arrangements . 

It was nice also to experience the in house onsen without having to go out in the cold to get there. 

The masseuse across the road was very good after a day of skiing and really enjoyed being able to walk easily to everything in the village esp for the fire festival.

Even able to come back to the rooms for a while to watch where the festival was up to , then go out again later on . Rooms very cosy and comfortable.

Was not too far a walk to the travellator either to get to the ski fields.

The woman in charge of the hotel was very good with making bookings etc for us-very reliable and great service.

Absolutely loved the village and the skiing.People friendly .  

Snow wonderful. Very pretty and long green runs , so enjoyable with children – they loved it .

Beautiful and interesting village and so glad we saw the fire festival . Nice to have more a traditional glimpse of everything. 

Only thing to mention to people is book your restaurant meals ahead as it is a small village and venues get booked out ahead .

Thanks for your help

Would love to go back

Late January 2014 

My wife and I stayed at Nakajimaya Ryokan, Nozawa Onsen in February 2014.

The rooms are large and comfortable, staff are helpful, smiling and courteous always, and the food is amazing. 

Many other great restaurants are nearby, as well as numerous free public onsens, 1 of which is right outside the front door.

When we return to Nozawa, we will be staying at Nakajimaya Ryokan."

This is an excellent traditional ryokan. 

The family that run it are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are comfortable and well decorated and the food is of a very high quality. I recommend having breakfast here and the dinner is also excellent. we spent a week here before heading off to hokkaido and it was one of the highlights of our trip."

Our group of 8 women had a wonderful week.

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.

Late Feb 2017

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 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.

After Nozawa, We made the short bus trip to Madarao ski resort there are two bus lines that run there daily. This is a small ski area but very compact runs and very nice layout. Again the year before we were skiing abundance of powder, this year was a little slower. We stayed at the Lodge Berglund, Mr Yamada and his family. This is in a secluded area with a short walk to the lifts each morning. They lodge is very clean, breakfasts are very good, a ski drying and storage area down stairs, WIFI everything that we needed for the trip. The lodge has dinners on request, or there are a number of small restaurants within a short walking distance. I would stay there again for the location, small lodge, privacy and the Japanese family atmosphere!

Would definitely stay again and definitely recommend to others.

Thank you also for setting up the accomodation.

Late January & early February 2015

My vacation at Madarao was awesome, had a great time!!
Extremely friendly and nice people, made lots of friends, enjoyed skiing with them.
Love the stay at Lodge Bergland, Yamada San and his wife treated me like a family member.
Extremely thankful to Yamada San to pick me up from Tangram resort when I mistakenly ended up there and the return ski lifts had closed. He even gifted me a pair of ski poles!!!!!
Enjoyed drinks and food at Rudolf!!!
Cannot forget Morito San and Akiko san's challenges :-)
And yes!!! What a great skier GG Hitoshi San is, I wish I could train under him!!!!
Attaching few pics, not sure if they are of any good use to you!!!

Late January 2015.

I had a fantastic time at Madarao in no small part due to the accommodation provided at Lodge Berglund by Mr Yamada and his wife. The lodge is a short stroll from the ski lifts and ticket office with guests receiving a generous discount on lift tickets when they purchase a coupon at the lodge in the morning. 

Breakfasts were filling and always served up in time to allow you to make the most of the ski day, do yourself a favour and stay in at least one night for a home cooked meal at the Lodge.

I was fortunate to have Mr Yamada drive me to my accommodation in Myoko Kogen at the end of my stay in Madarao (in a blizard) which I am very greatful of.

I would highly reccommend this lodge to all travelers (singles, groups or families) and will certainly be back in the not too distant future.

Booking through Hisae at Japan snow Accommodation made for a very easy trip considering the limited english in Madarao.

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 Alison

 

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"
