Furano Prince Hotel guest reviews

 

 

Mid Feb 2017

Your service was excellent although I did find the payment options a bit limiting in terms of getting the best exchange rate on the transaction – not a show stopper though. 

The hotel itself is starting to get a bit tired and needs refurbishment but that is in part made up by the terrific ski in/ski out (just) location.

The staff were outstanding – all very friendly and helpful.The meals were excellent.  

Good choice at breakfast and dinner (buffet). There is no bar in the hotel so nowhere to relax over a drink. 

While it is a fair way out of Furano town, there is a night bus service with a pick-up from the front of the hotel. The bus to Asahikawa airport also stops at the front of the hotel.

As for the skiing, it wasn’t the greatest of snow when I was there and there are only a limited number challenging runs so overall I found it a bit tame. 

Probably good for families though.

Regards,
Roy

Hi Roy,

Thanks for the review!

If you have access to a better exchange rate the best choice is paying directly into our Japanese yen account. Simply chose this option on checkout and our bank details will be emailed to you.

We loved our time in Japan thank you Hisae.  Your assistance with bookings was very efficient and helped make the process seamless. We really enjoyed our stay at Ryokan Jon Nobi and the staff and locals we encountered throughout Nozawa Onsen were friendly, efficient and helpful. We would definitely recommend a stay for families. And importantly, the snow was incredible!

A couple of pics attached for you.

Thank you again Hisae for your help in making our trip so enjoyable.

Ryokan Jonnobi is ideal for a family who want to experience Japanese style accommodation, in the heart of Nozawa Onsen village. Great location, handy to shops and cafes, and very close to the Yu Road [a travelator “road”] which delivers you to the Hikage ski trail. 

Our 2 rooms accommodated our family of 6 comfortably, in tatami rooms with ensuites. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was extensive, catering for both Japanese and western foods experiences. Jonnobi has 2 hot spring rooms which are open to the public, as well as 2 private hot spring rooms for exclusive use by the guests; the latter 2 are open to the sky, so that the snow fell languidly through the opening onto our steaming bodies – a great thrill. Jonnobi ticked all our boxes. 

The Hikage ski trail was a great family place, well organized with good instructors, ski equipment hire and plenty of eating choices. 

 The staff of Japan Snow Accommodation [read Hisae] gave great tips in the planning stages of our visit. eg. Take the bullet train from Tokyo to Iiyama Station and a bus from there to Nozawa Onsen village. 

Ryokan Jonnobi is a 5 minute walk from the bus station. The whole experience satisfied all members of our family aged 10 to 74 years.

Many  thanks for all your time and assistance with booking our Nozwa Onsen experience staying at Jon Nobi Ryokan.  We found the accommodation at Jon Nobi very warm, quiet, with comfortable beds after a full day of skiing and the breakfast selection of Asian and western foods each morning contained plenty of choice for both adults and children. 

There were two private onsens that could be used exclusively plus a male and female onsen open for all to use.  These were all kept very clean and neat.  Toiletries and hair dryers were also supplied in the private and public onsen areas that added a lovely touch.  Kimonos and slippers were also supplied in our rooms for going to and from the onsens which were quite a novelty for the children.

Jon Nobi is situated in a great location  at the top of the town and such an easy walk to the ski field via the moving walkway (Yu Road travelator).  A huge plus at the end of each day was the ability to leave our skis at the St. Anton Ski hire rooms.  This made the end of a long day skiing with kids so much more pleasurable than having to cart skis and poles back to our accommodation. 

The slopes at Nozwa Onsen are great for families wanting to ski together and there is a variety of slopes depending on your skill level and ability with plenty of connecting lifts.  There was also a large children's play park at the base of the slopes near St. Anton ski hire centre with rubber tyres and sleds that the children could use.

The only issues we had whilst in Nozwa Onsen was that the Ryokan style of accommodation was probably a bit too small to  accommodate a family of 4 all with ski clothing to dry at the end of each day in our room plus all of our luggage. If there had been a drying room on the premises we would have had more room to move. In saying this, we wanted to try the Ryokan style of accommodation to experience a more traditional Japanese style of accommodation.  Knowing the layout of a Ryokan and taking into consideration the amount of stuff we all had, we should have booked two rooms side by side.  

The only other disappointing issue was as a guest of Jon Nobi we thought that we would have been able to dine in the restaurant at least one night during our stay, however we were told that the restaurant was fully booked during our stay.  We since found out that the bookings were from people staying else where and not at Jon Nobi.  We thought as guests staying at the Ryokan, we would have had first option to restaurant bookings.  That was a bit sad Emoji.

However, the overall experience was wonderful and we enjoyed staying in a different location for part of our holiday.  Many thanks again Hisae for all your assistance and for making our holiday in Nozwa Onsen very enjoyable.

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.

North Point Pension

 

Late January 2014 I had a wonderful trip. 


"The serviced received from yourselves was very helpful and accommodating. You found me a very suitable room at my preferred budget during the peak time of the season. 

The chalet itself was nicely furnished and the room was a generous size. 

The hosts were very friendly and added to the ambience of the accommodation. 
 
 
Mid February 2014. 

Thank you for recommending North Point Pension for my recent trip to Niseko Hirafu. 

Tim and Nic made my holiday! North Point is kept immaculate, and has all the facilities required for a comfortably stay and a great skiing experience. 

The shuttle bus was frequent and not far from the chalet, I even walked home from the slopes on several occasions.

Overall I had a wonderful experience and can’t wait to go back next year!

Thanks
Katherine Earl

 

Late February 2014 

"North Point is kept immaculate, and has all the facilities required for a comfortably stay and a great skiing experience. 

Day starts with a fabulous breakfast, then its mountain time with the fist run my Tim or Nic in the lodge van to the lifts. Generally there will be a second run around 9am for those in not such a hurry, which is kind of good , as there are no lift ques at this time.

Enjoyed the mountain, snow was great , and a nice change from skiing in Australia. I would go back again, in fact my mate I travelled with is already planning a group to return to North Point next year.

Once again thank you, and a huge thank-you to Nic and Tim at North Point Pension for their superb hospitality, and a lodge run to the highest standards." 

Robert Kerr 

 

Late February 2014 

"On my third trip to Niseko, we stayed at North Point Pension. We absolutely loved it! 

Our hosts were incredibly helpful and accommodating, even making our "made to order" breakfast each morning with eggs and bacon. They helped us with rentals, transportation, and recommendations for everything from restaurants to onsens. Thank you Nikki and Tim!

The pension had well spaced rooms that were very clean with heated floors (a must in the winter!). There were plenty of sinks and bathrooms for guests to use and an enormous showering area. They also had two living room areas to lounge or watch television and movies. Tons of bars and restaurants were within walking distance and the bus was less than five minutes away. 

I would definitely stay at North Point Pension next time and recommend it to anyone going to Niseko."

Thanks for making the arrangements. 

We are seriously considering planning for another trip."

Mid January 2014 

"We had the most amazing time! We got North Point Pension so last minute and I don't think we could have found better accommodation. We were so happy with the lodging, and especially with the managers Tim and Nic. 

The mountain was fantastic. We were lucky enough to get hooked up with some locals who showed us all the secret spots and it made the trip so special. We took a couple day trips to Kiroro and Rusutsu. I would highly recommend that others take some day trips to other resorts. It is very cool to experience some of the smaller resorts that are less catered to westerners. 

We were incredibly happy with Niseko, such delightful food available everywhere and such welcoming people. I will definitely be back and am considering making it my home for a season or more! Thank you for helping us find lodging last minute. You were wonderfully helpful and we will definitely use you again!"

Early January 2014  

We had an excellent trip, everything went buttery smooth all the way.

The mountain and it's conditions is as everyone knows world class, at least in the powder department. Prices are reasonable, and also worth mentioning is the food, in most places the food is diverse, made to go fresh and tasty. Our accommodation, I can't speak highly enough about it. Fairly central location, clean, nice rooms, brilliant breakfast and some really knowledgeable, helpful and sweet hosts.

All info I received from you guys were accurate and helpful and made our trip a breeze.

From Pal


 

January 2014 

"North Point is by far the most relaxed and comfortable place I've stayed at in Hirafu

The pension itself has all the features needed post powder day such as a sitting room and separate TV room. The rooms are clean and larger than typical Japanese pensions. 

The breakfast supplied keeps you going all day and there are snacks supplied at the end of the day. There is a drying room running continously so your ski kit will be toasty warm each morning.

North Point is close to all ammenities such as the lifts, shops and restaurants even though it's located in the lower part of the village. It's no more than a 10 min walk to the closest lift. The best onsen in town is a 3 min walk away.

Tim & Nic run the loadge and are always on hand to look after all the guests needs such as supplying a washing machine and dryer free of charge. They pick you up from the bus stop when you arrive and run you to the lifts each morning. If they can help, they will.

I've had a fantastic 10 night stay here and will gladly come back. Some rooms have a kind of mezzanine annex so could be good if you had a third person with you"

"North Point was a great place to stay tucked in a nice quiet part of town. 

Nic and Tim were very accommodating. They picked me when I arrived and drove me to the lifts that following morning. Room were awesome and spacious. Thanks.

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.

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!

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

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

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."

"Run by a delightful couple called Jijyo and Kyoko who have a baby son called Hayato - they took really good care of us 

- everything from hiring equipment, transporting us to the gondola lift and taking us to onsen. 

Breakfast was a good balance and they were extremely hospitable throughout our stay there. 

A really special place to be when you're in Niseko, and a peace of mind."

"Our stay at the Niseko lodge Tabi No Kosaten was nothing short of excellent.. 

Our hosts gave good down to earth accommodation showing us all the good spots to eat, drink and play also giving us advice on our futher japan travels.. 

location is a bit out maybe 10 minute walk to main part of hirafu (good chance to soba up a little) and like 5 minutes to a bus stop that takes you in and drops you off.. its got my vote"

Hakuba Meteor Pension

 

Early January 2014  Overall, very happy with the Meteor. 

Our one suggestion is that it would be nice if they offered Dinner. Even if this was a set menu and had to be pre-booked, having the option of not going out would be nice.



Dallas

 

"I stayed in the Meteor Pension for seven days and found it to be an excellent place to base my skiing holiday..

The communal spaces are cosy, and aesthetically pleasing, the room was all I needed and the staff were great. They're extremely generous, super helpful and lots of fun.

The Pension is not that close to the action and you have to catch a shuttle bus to lifts but its free that wasn't a hassle at all. It meant the price was much lower. 

The snow was okay but not brilliant, I was hoping for some powder but wasn't to be."

by Nick F

 

"My friend and I stayed at Meteor Pension at the beginning of February 2011. We had a fantastic time, partly due to the epic snow conditions, but mostly due to the hospitality and approachability of the staff at Meteor Pension. 

They made us feel at home and gave us all the information we required about buses, lifts, best resort to ski that particular day etc. They went above and beyond what I would generally recieve at a Pension Hotel. 

They always have an English speaking staff member working- we had arrogantly gone to their country speaking very little Japanese, however they did their very best to translate our queries- even going so far as calling another hotel to act as a translator when their English speaking son, Yuigi had gone to pick up some guests from the bus terminal! 

The facilities are very good, with large rooms and welcoming communal areas. 

The location is also fantastic, just behind Echoland. It is central to all resorts, and while not being the closest to one resort, its location makes all theresorts between a 5 and 20 minutes shuttle bus ride from Meteor. 

Definitely will be returning next season!"

"We really enjoyed our stay at the Meteor Pension - the family who run it are very friendly and keen to help, and any language difficulties were easily overcome. 

The location is great, in Echoland - lots of restaurants nearby, easy access to onsens, and good transport options for getting to most of the resorts. The continental breakfast was good value (the cooked breakfast didn't look that great). 

Our room wasn't huge but was well heated (apart from the bathroom, which was arctic!) and comfortable. 

We saw one of the rooms at the next-door Meteor Lodge - the beds are bigger and the room a bit bigger, but there didn't seem a huge difference. 

Overall, it was a really nice place to stay and seemed like really good value. 

We'll definitely stay there again if we return to Hakuba."

"We stayed at the Hakuba Meteor Pension in February 2013. 

We travelled as a family of four to Japan to the first time, to visit our son who was working as a ski instructor in Happo One. 

The accommodation was perfect for us, close enough to the slopes and also bars and restaurants at Echoland and Happo One, whilst still retaining a peaceful character. We had a loft room, and shared Japanese style bathrooms which were interesting! 

Tetsu and his family who run the Meteor Pension were really helpful, they took us to the slopes and wherever we asked in the minibus, and the accommodation was friendly, clean and traditional. 

We loved it and would definitely stay here again."

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 
Leith Macintosh
