Annex Aburaya guest reviews

 

Mid January 2017

Thanks once again for booking our accommodation. 

Our hosts at Annex Aburaya were amazing and so accommodating. English was a challenge but google translator helped massively. It had a real Japanese feel and the breakfast and dinner was great. The ski lifts and slopes are just outside the front door across the road so a hop, skip and a jump and you are off down the mountain. Madarao Ski Resort is sure one not to be missed. The runs are perfect for all levels of skiing. Those who like a bit of off piste stuff well this is the mountain for you as it is aloud. We will be heading back for sure. If you are looking to get away from the now more popular ski resorts in Nagano check out Madarao you will not be disappointed. 
Cheers Larissa 


"We spent 4 days boarding in Madarao, staying at Aburaya.

Each evening we ate in the pension, and the food was amazing.

Although the owners did not speak much English, language was not an issue as they made a huge effort, and the hospitality was first class."

By David

 

"This place was perfect. 

The owners were so hospitable and made a huge effort for us. Nothing was too much trouble. 

The meals were all excellent and on our last night we were really treated to some fine dining Japanese style! delicious! 

The location was also perfect as it was right next to the chairlift. The perfect hosts and great value for money is how i would describe my stay."

Guest review - Hakuba Goryu Stelle Belle

 

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."

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.

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.

Chalet Shiga guest review

 

 

 

Late Feb 2017

The Chalet Shiga was very good value for money however we unfortunately got very sick with influenza on arriving at Shiga Kogen – probably from the flight over as they say it takes about a week to affect you and we had a week at Hakuba before heading to Shiga.  I skied for only 2 hours out of a planned 4 days skiing.  The rest of the family were not quite as sick and got a day or two in skiing.

The rooms were good (I know as I spent most of my time in it) and the onsen was great.  Service at the hotel was also great as was the Tapas Bar downstairs.  Ski storage room was great for storage and plenty of seating to get yourself organised.The ski hire shop across the road was a bit dodgy in the quality of equipment they were giving out (this was a general feeling from our whole group) – not sure where else we could have gone but next time I would source elsewhere.

Would recommend and stay there again

Regards,
Greg LEE
 

 

 

Early Feb 2017

Chalet Shiga was exactly what we had hoped for and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will most likely return next year.We enjoyed good clean rooms and amenities and a  good breakfast. We loved having an Onsen each day after a hard day’s skiing. The staff were helpful and friendly and a number spoke good English. We found the heated ski locker room a bonus. The hotel is opposite a ski lift which made access easy  and we could ski back to the front door each day. Discount lift tickets were available at the reception desk.Our only minor problem was finding a restaurant in town for our evening meal as several were closed, particularly on weekends. The restaurants that were open were generally booked out. We experienced this last year as well and were told that it was because there were several school groups visiting. I can’t understand why it is necessary to close restaurants and miss out on the trade. It actually became a bit of a joke with other guests and a race to find a meal.

Peter, Barbara and Michael.

Early January 2017

Great time in Japan. 

Snow was light on in Appi and Zao which was a shame but it bucketed in Shiga.Loved Chalet Shiga. 

The owners are fantastic.Rooms are spotless, big, spacious, front rooms have amazing views of the slopes and in a great spot. Good little izakaya 20m away and in the chalet they have a fantastic simple restaurant which was amazing -local beers, wine and good home cooked food. Breakfast really good. Straight across the road to a ski lifGreat variety of slopes  -had a terrific 4 days. Highly recommend Chalet Shiga to everyone -families, couples.

Heaps of snow.

 Mid Jan 2016

We travelled as a family of 7 to Japan and stayed at Chalet Shiga for 4 nights in January. We had the most memorable time here. The accommodation was great. We had 3 of the tatami mat rooms and as requested had 3 fantastic rooms next to each other. They were very clean and comfortable, and we all loved the robes and slippers provided. 

Mr Sato was so helpful and was always eager to explain buses and help with timetables, especially when we were trying to make the trip to the snow monkey park. All the staff were lovely, polite and helpful.

The Chalet is in the best location and we just walked across the road to a couple of chair lifts. The skiing was also fantastic and once again all the staff were so friendly and polite.

We definitely plan to return as soon as we can make it. The whole experience in the snow was made so enjoyable by the great service provided by Japan Snow accommodation especially Hisae, and by all the people at Chalet Shiga.

Late January 2015 

The Shiga leg of the trip was excellent.  Lots of snow, Hide and his wife were superb hosts, the accommodation on the snow worked really well.    I cannot comment on how good the snow was, how short the lift queues were and how easy it was to get around (with our limited Japanese).  We loved the Chalet Shiga and the owners (Hide and Hideyo (?) were beautiful people.  If you had an email for them please send to me so I can thank them properly.  I did not realise how much his family is a part of the local history.

We also caught a bus on several days to travel to nearby ski fields– many you can easily ski to and from!  The view from the Bakery on a clear day was impossible to describe!  Highly recommended.  

Some travellers may be potentially unsure of the lack of western “things” but they should not be worried, the experience is a pleasure and everyone local is so friendly that language barriers and new foods are simply part of the fun!

I attach a number of photos for you to use as you wish.

The small trouble we had was the small number of restaurants to eat at but we managed to find enough to keep us full and happy for a week!  

Thank again for your help in finding great accom, brilliant snow and a wonderful Japanese holiday.  We have been to ski in Japan 5 times and each time is an incredible holiday and cultural experience.

Many thanks again

"Many thanks to Hisae for arranging an excellent ski holiday in Shiga Kogen.

She was able to answer all our questions about travel, transfers,
money etc Would have no hesitation in recommending Japan Snow
Accommodation to other skiers."

Thanks again for your help.

We will be in touch about our next trip to Japan.

"The trip was a blast! I have no complaints at all about the stay.

It was well-kept and the rooms were very large, plus it had a bar downstairs which was quite nice.

One suggestion I do have is to try and find a more detailed map of the some of the bars, restaurants and shops within maybe a 20 minute walking distance. We ended up doing our own exploring, but it would have been nice to have more of an idea of what is around us since we are more or less limited to what's available up in the mountain. 

Thank you for your great service and a wonderful holiday!

"First, the staff at Chalet Shiga was extremely friendly and helpful" - Ming

They had our dinner ready, even though we arrived late and past their dining hours. They walked to the lifts with us to make sure our lift passes worked properly.

Second, we enjoyed the spaciousness of the tatami rooms.

Third, the location was great, right across from the lifts.

Needs improvement: The breakfast...while they offered both the traditional Japanese-style and the Western-style breakfast, the overall options left us pining for properly cooked eggs and good-for-you items (fresh fruit, whole wheat bread, muesli, yoghurt...).

Honourable mention to Hisae Cameron for being super helpful and patient with us!"

"WE were very happy with the our stay at the Chalet Shiga" - Bernie

The tatami rooms are very spacious,warm and housekeeping was great.

The food was nice and always ready. Eggs where cold in the morning, as everything was also ready when we came.

Staff where all very nice and helpful, and if we would have worried enough about it and said something, I'm sure they would have cooked them, when we arrived for breakfast.

The internet was fast and sometimes worked in the room also.

The location is perfect, you can ski in and out.

We would stay there again anytime. Thank you"

Yoshidaya Ryokan guest review

 
 
Early Jan 2016 

Our ryokan was excellent, the staff were very helpful. 

The onsen was great too, and the local town public onsen were worth visiting also. 

I would recommend Zao onsen to anyone who would like to experience a more traditional Japanese mountain experience and who like a more peaceful town than the busier places like Hakuba. I will go back in the future.

As always your service was great too.

All the best,
Andrew Maher
