Hotel Shirakabaso

 

Late December 2013 


"We have booked hotel  Shirakabaso trough Japan Snow Accommodation. All our inquiries about hotel  were answered by the staff very promptly.

The staff also provided us with some hints and tips that were very handy for us while we were arranging entire trip to Japan. Thanks to the staff from Japan Snow Accommodation for our trip to go so smooth.

Hotel Shirakabaso is a hotel that can cater for everyone. For someone who just wants to relax or for a family.

As soon as we entered hotel we felt welcome. The staff were so comforting and helpful. 

The rooms were cosy  and were able to  accommodate four of us and made us feel comfortable.  

After a long day of skiing we would come to the room and go to the hotel's communal bath (despite our room had en-suite with the bath). It was a great cultural experience  The bath also  had all necessities to make this experience very relaxing. 

The hotel's outdoor onsen is one not to be missed and it  was spectacular, just feeling the cold of the snow but also the heat from the pool and just the piece and quiet made it a lot more relaxing. 

After the onsen we would go to have dinner. This was a one of the things we were looking forward to every day. At first it isn't much but they just keep bringing more and more delicious food. By the end of dinner all four of us would be full as there was so much variety. The breakfast in the morning was very similar and would give us lots of energy for the day. 

The hotel has skiing gear for rentals as well as some stuff for little kids. 

Hotel's location is also very convenient for exploring Shiga Kogen by ski or by shuttle bus.

Overall the hotel is very cosy. The manager and staff are fantastic and helpful. Service were great and  the food was delicious.  We would definitely recommend this hotel for its hospitality and facilities and great cultural experience.

They provided a high standard of service, rooms are nice and big, breakfast and dinner are delicious, rental equipment are new, very heartfelt services in every details.  

My husband was hurt during skiing, Sato san sent him to the medical centre which is 30mins away from the hotel and took care of him very well.  Really appreciated!

"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."

"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."

Fujio Pension

 

Early February 2014 Madarao Fujio Pension. My trip to Japan was great. 

Madarao ski resort was great. You can also ski  the adjoining resort of Tangram circus for an additional 1500 yen.

Pension Fujio was really nice and I enjoyed the meals that Kimmi made.Very reasonable for 2000 yen per meal. Normally around 5 –6 courses. 

Very clean rooms and a really nice inside Japanese bath in the basement level.  

One thing that I think you should advise people is to book the first nights meal in advance. Its very annoying when you have travelled all day and they tell you you cant have dinner because you need to book the night before. 

There are no laundry services which would be good. Had to wash my clothes in the sink in the room. They should buy a washer & dryer. 

We had a warm spell before I got to Madarao and was lucky that it turned back to winter and we received heaps of new snow.

Your service was very good and you answered all of my questions in all of my emails. 

Thanks for your help. If you have any good specials for next season please let me know.

Mid January 2014 - "Our stay at Fujio Pension at Madarao Kogen was fantastic!

Takeshi and his wife are wonderful hosts and their Pension is very warm, homely and welcoming.

 The meals and breakfasts were five out of five stars! Accommodation very comfortable and we felt right at home. Takeshi has a great knowledge on the area and his lifts and pick ups to the slopes everyday was wonderful- saved our sore powder legs! The mountain is great! Excellent snow, great tree skiing, good variety of terrain and nice little restaurants for lunch. Would love to re visit for more exploring!

Thank you Fujio Pension and Japan snow Accommodation (Hisae) for a seamless and wonderful experience.

If you are interested Hisae, I have a snow brand called Forcaster! We are making snow clothing such as beanies, hoodies and tees. Check it out and tell your friends! www.forcastersnow.comwww.facebook.com/forcastersnow

Here are some pics from madarao!!

"we missed the connnecting bus due to an acccident on the railway.

However we rang ahead and Kitamura san met us at the bus. 

The service was exceptional, the food was fantastic, we were taken to the ski resort promptly each day and picked up promptly at our convenience. 

Our stay was memorable and we would recommend this to others.  

Thankyou"

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.

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

Thanks again for your help.

"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"

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.

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

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.
