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

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

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.

Accommodation was excellent and staff were friendly and always there to help with whatever inquiries we had! 

They gave us great info on nightlife, mountain ranges and helped us pick the best mountain each day according to their knowledge of the upcoming weather conditions!

I would highly recommend that anyone looking for a fun laid back lodge in a great location of niseko to definitely not look past popcorn lodge!

Mid February 2014  

Trip was great, thanks very much. I think we lucked into the best week of the season for snowfall. No trouble with your service, found it excellent.

Seisenso was OK. It was run by a very nice woman and she was very helpful.

The pension itself though is quite old and could do with a bit of a renovation. 

There are only two or three western style toilets in the whole building.

The common area is very small and not heated. 

Drying room was too small for the number of people who needed to use it.

Location was good - very central in the town.


The included breakfast was good - good variety of japanese/western options.


Onsen was good.

Late January 2017

Hotel Daimaru was conveniently located a 2min walk to Akakura Onsen lifts, the hotel rooms were huge by Japanese standards- plenty of room for laying out damp snow gear. The breakfast buffet was good and lockable snowboard racks in the downstairs storage room was a bonus. Great location, good value and epic Myoko powder.

Cheers Jodie
 

 

Mid January 2017

we had a great time at Hotel Daimaru. Our rating would be excellent for service, breakfast, onsen and location. Medium for hotel maintenance as it really needs some light renovation work (paints are peeling, carpet is very old and worn).

Having said that, i would go back and hope for a little refresher of the place :-)

Mid January 2017

HUGE snowfalls in Myoko but the whole ski area layout unfortunately is a logistical challenge and pretty tiring on kids in particular with all the walking and poor lift connectivity. The skifields are pretty flat too and you need steeper terrain for those snow fall quantities.

Whilst clean and Huge rooms the Daimaru is really really tired with wallpaper peeling off etc. The colours of the dated interior, vinyl floors and carpet etc was so bad it was laughable and everyone had a great joke about it. That said I would still recommend it and it was fine.

Hint for future bookings: You dont want to be in a room facing the road at Daimaru. The noise of the snow movers every night between 2am and 5am was pretty bad and caused sleeping challenges.

Your assistance in this trip was fantastic.

Thanks so much again.

Hotel Daimaru was an interesting place to stay.

On the downside it is very rundown and in need of some renovation.

However it is clean and comfortable with large rooms and the staff were really friendly and helpful. It is an easy walk to chairlifts at akakura onsen resort and from there access to Akakan resort was convenient. It is also possible to walk through the village to the Akakan resort. We travelled on the shuttle bus to nearby suginohara resort and had 2 great days there with good snow and no crowds.

We had exceptionally good service at Spicy snowboard/ski hire shop, their equipment was good, well maintained and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had suitable gear.

Appi Grand Villa 3 guest reviews

 
Late January 2017

Stayed at Appi Grand Villa 3 for 4 days in Jan 2017.

This hotel is quite big ( about 13 floors ) comfortable, but not over the top. Facilities are good, including Onsen and staff very friendly and helpful,you could get away with little or no Japanese language as most spoke some English.Virtually ski in ski out, just a 2 minute walk before you can ski down to the lift and you can ski back to the door.This hotel is a little way from the main Appi Grand Hotel where you can use their facilities with no additional cost but there is a regular free shuttle around the resort so you can access the main area quite easily.

Advanced runs are confined to the top part of the mountain, all with various lengths of green to get back onto the lifts. The most challenging run, with a tree run thru the middle of a split ungroomed run, is short  and has a long green run to access and even longer green back to the lift. If you are looking to be challenged all day I'd suggest this is not the mountain for you, if you like a bit of black and are happy with a good bit of cruising reds (our blue) and greens, then Appi would suit just fine.I travelled from Haneda airport to Morioka by train (Via Tokyo) and bus from Morioka station, I had no delays but recommend checking connections, to avoid waiting time.

Hisae at Japan snow accommodation organised all my accommodations in her usual friendly and efficient manner, re arranging dates to work in with my itinerary as we went, also picking up the deals with meals and lift ticket inclusions that were available. Hisae has organised my Japan trips for a number of years now and I will continue to use Japan Snow Accommodation in the future.

Late January 2015

Hisae (Japan Snow Accommodation booking Agent) was very easy to communicate with, very organised and kept me up to date. The whole booking process flowed very smoothly and I was really happy with the service.I would definitely use Japan Snow Accomodation again.

My week long stay at Appi Grand Villa 3 was wonderful. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much bother.

The main gondola is only a short ski away.

The hotel rooms are big by Japanese standards and had a great view over the surrounding mountains. 

The buffet breakfast consists of Japanese or continental selections and there is plenty of variety.

Lockable ski lockers for your ski gear next to the mountain exit on the ground floor.

There is a large onsen in the basement.

There are regular shuttle buses to transport you to the other hotels in the Appi resort complex or back to Morioka. Appi is only a sort bus or train ride from morioka( about 1 hour).

Appi resort also run a day trip to Shimokura resort on Fridays.

I would definitely recommend a visit - a small resort with only 3 lifts and hardly any skiers.

The snow we had the day we visited was some of the best i have ever skied in Japan.It was a great day of skiing at a tiny resort. Appi is a good sized resort and has some good steep runs and long runs.It takes a few days to explore properly.

We got loads of snow while we were there,I really enjoyed my visit to Appi.

We had a wonderful trip!

The room was clean and big. 

Food was very good.

Steak and crab (buffet restaurant) was fresh and yummy.

Beef (まえさわぎゅう) served at Korean BBQ was high-quality. 

Wide slopes and non crowed (even holiday).  

Everyone can find the slopes that best suit their level.The photo is still prepared when it is ready we will send you.

Best, YingChe

Furano Lodge 10 guest reviews

 

 

 

 

Early Feb 2017

As on previous occasions everything was wonderful during our stay in Furano. From the very beginning when we arrived at our designated bus stop area in Furano, our lovely host Koitchi was there waiting for us to take us to our accommodation.  He was so helpful that he even picked us up later that evening and drove us to the local supermarket for some groceries. He was so patient waiting for us while we shopped for some supplies.

The house is perfectly set up with two sitting areas and kitchens which suited our group perfectly.The house is also within walking distance to the Kitanomine Gondola each day. There is a lovely coffee house which sells delicious sweets a few doors down the street.

We have stayed at Lodge 10 on previous trips and will continue to book this house anytime we visit Furano.

Booking the house through Japan Snow Accommodation was easy and everything ran smoothly.

Thank you to all parties involved for making our stay so enjoyable!

Cheers,
Rebecca


 

 

Late Jan 2016

I had to email and tell you what an amazing trip to Furano we've had. 

Your service and advice and assistance in preparing this trip was outstanding and I'm telling everyone I know about you. 

The accommodation was superb and please pass onto to the owners that their place is wonderfully equipped, beautiful and more than comfortable for a group or in our case, extended family. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to have a place where we could relax and socialise, cook and have a few drinks with happy kids and happy grandparents all together. You would never get that at a hotel. It is being well maintained by Tatsumi and he was more than helpful when we arrived with explanations, Japanese plugs and a trip into town for groceries. He was very diligent with clearing the steps and path each day of snow and daily rubbish removal. 

We rented out gear from the shop in the kitanomine gondola building. They were fantastic and the gear was great. They let us keep all the gear there overnight and keep our walking shoes there during the day which made the walk back to the lodge easy. I would recommend them. Also the ski school run from the same shop were brilliant with the kids. The free mountain host service booked thru the tourist info office in gondola building is an absolute must and our host was terrific and her guidance around the mountains on the first day gave us the knowledge and confidence to use the entire resort for all standard of skiers and boarders in or family. 

I could go on and mention how fabulously friendly and helpful and lovely the Japanese people are but you'd know that! Also the food!

Anyway, once again thanks and I will continue to recommend you to others. We will definitely be going back and look forward to dealing with you again,

“From the moment I contacted Japan Snow Accommodation about organising our trip to Japan I received nothing but 5 star quality customer service. 

Our land transfers to and from Furano were organised meticulously. 

Once arriving in Furano we were greeted by proficient and helpful staff who ushered us directly to our accommodation. 

The Furano 10 Lodge exceeded our 5 star expectations. The bedrooms are spacious and the living areas (2 of them) more than happily accommodated our group of 8 people. 

Access to the Kitanomine Gondola (main lift) took a comfortable 10 minute walk from the property.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the seamless experience that Hisae and the staff at Japan Snow Accommodation provided for us. I will definitely be asking the team at Japan Snow Accommodation to organise our next trip”.

"The Lodge 10 accommodation was great, everything in the house worked great, was clean and super nice. 

Furano was great for snowboarding, no lift lines, great snow and good facilities on the hill. 

It was definitely the best snow I have ever ridden. 

In the house I might suggest that you have washing machine instructions in English and maybe a coffee machine? But otherwise everything was great."

Thanks  Mike

 

"Furano Lodge 10 was Fantastic. 

Such a beautiful view from the Lodge. 

The Modern well maintained House was very clean, Large, warm, with all modern fittings. 

The Lodge manager was terrific. only a short 5 min walk from the ski runs. 

And Furano had amazing snow fall. 

I will be returning to this holiday spot."

"Furano lodge 10 is a fantastic modern western style accommodation that is perfect for a group or family. 

Close enough to the lifts but far away enough that you have your own private piece of paradise. 

The lodge manager is fantastic and is only too happy to provide assistance where needed. 

I can't wait to stay there again."

Appi Grand was excellent. Our rooms in the Tower, although not brand new in their furnishings, were spacious, well appointed, and with great views. The service was extremely good. The  food in all the restaurants was delicious. The location of the hotel is ideal for easy and true ski in ski out skiing. The facilities of the hotel were extensive, and very good for entertainment of children and toddlers. Thank you again for all your help with the booking.
