Hotel Manseikaku Bearmonte guest reviews

 

 

Mid Feb 2017

We had a great time at Asahidake!

Lucky enough to have a clear day when we had skins to ski up around the vents. Then new snow on 3 mornings. One day blown out!

Still enjoy Bearmonte, with great onsen and very attentive staff. We would comment that the special food they bring, as a long term guest, is sometimes not as good as just on the Buffet. A lot of crab claws were wasted, and some extra main courses were left abandoned, in favour of buffet.

Cheers, Tony

 

 

Mid Feb 2017

Once again we loved Hotel Bearmonte - it was so nice and close to the slopes and every night we looked forward to luxuriating in the Onsen to revive ready for the next day. It was great they had a new ski shop together with snow shoes so that when the rope way was closed we could go for a shuffle.  Food was very good as well - though we all tended to eat too much.

Thanks again for your organisation - everything went smoothly.

Cheers

Asahidake & Hotel Bearmonte were definitely the highlight of our trip to Japan

The hotel, staff, food, onsen and conditions on the mountain could not have been better. 

I included a photo of Toshi our guide. His professionalism, local knowledge, helpfulness, equipment, and patience made
our day on the mountain with him memorable.  

Please remind your western guests that the onsen changes sides daily for men and women.  One of our crew did not
know this took a left into the onsen just like the previous day. The women in the onsen had a good laugh when he
started to step into the onsen buck naked,ha!!. 

Below are some shots from my trio

"Asahidake Hotel Bearmonte was excellent. 

Location near cable way was perfect for skiing. 

Rooms were comfortable, clean and warm. 

Breakfasts and dinner at the restaurant were very good.

Onsen was great!

Highlight, however, was attentiveness and service by the staff. For example we bought a bottle of 
sake for our group to drink in a room one night and as we were getting into the lift one of the staff ran 
over and gave us 5 sake glasses forus to use.".

Geto Camp 88 guest reviews

 

Feb 2017 

We have just finished day 3 at Geto Kogen.This place is incredible.  Amazing. We have had fresh tracks every run since we have been here. It is deserted mid week. We had run after run in 50cm of new super light snow and never saw another skier.The people here are lovely if a bit disorganised. It is clear that the place is struggling with so few customers.  What is staggering is that this place has great lifts, excellent terrain, mind blowing snow and it is deserted. How could it be this good? A number of us (there are two other old Aussie guys here) have done a lot of skiing in Japan and around the world and we are dumdstruck that we are having such a great time with the whole place to ourselves.  Thankyou so much for the suggestion and support. I will keep you posted on the next few days which also look terrific. Pass this message on to Pete for me. 

Rob, John & David.

Resort

The Geto resort is great. It's small, and there's some aspects of the layout that could be better (plenty of poling and skating required if you're on skis like I was, and snowboarders have their work cut out for them), but it's still a super fun snow playground. Not very busy, good quality snow (albeit a little denser than I was expecting), and some really amazing tree runs to explore. Overall, it's just a great little spot to have fun skiing.

Accommodation

The accommodation is good. Staff are friendly. Heated drying room for your gear is very convenient. There's a nice "relaxation room" with reclining chairs and big windows to gaze out on the mountain. The onsen is excellent, and certainly the best way to finish off a day of skiing. Their dorm setup works pretty well. The beds are enclosed at the top, bottom, and on one side, while the other side has a curtain. The bed itself is decently comfortable, the rice pillow not so much (or at least, I've been spoiled by pillows softer than a sack of dry rice), and they do keep it a little too warm in there (in my opinion) through the night. But it's perfectly serviceable for a night's sleep. The only real downside is that the food is mediocre at best, depending on if your timing is right to get it warm (it's buffet style). But it is extremely convenient and, for the price, what can you expect? It's fine considering how affordable it is.

Service

Japan Snow Accommodation's service was excellent! I have no complaints. You were very helpful. Thank you so much!

Finally, I've attached some photos. Hope this is useful!

Thanks again for your help!

Sincerely,

Travis Larson

Kogakuro guest reviews


Late Feb 2017

Kogakuro Hotel at Akakura Onsen was good. It is in need of some reburbishment but completely comfortable and clean with a lovely host, Meiko. Good breakfast available, we had a Japanese room which could sleep 3 people, and they have an inside/outside onsen which is clean. The outside bath is covered preventing the fresh snow flakes falling into the bath while bathing, which I like! They gave a nice bar with a real fireplace which is not often found in Japan ski hotels, good for apres ski drinks. 

Hisae and her team did a great job to organise our ski trip to Myoko 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.

Regards,
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!

From Mallory Bergen

 

 

"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"

We enjoyed our stay at Pension Locomotion. The owner was very helpful. The rooms were not very big but the biggest problem was the mattresses on the beds. We didn't find them very comfortable. Otherwise good value for the money.

Late December 2016

The owner is very nice and friendly. The overall facility is reasonably with its price. However, I got the basement room and it was extremely freezing when compared to the upstairs (breakfast area & common room). It seems that the heater in my room was not sufficient for its condition and size.

Mid December 2015

The Locomotion was once again a lovely place to stay, it had avery comfortable room & the location was wonderful as it was in a quieter part of Hirafu.

With only a small walk to convenience stores and restaurants you felt like you were amongst it all but had piece and quite when you wanted.   

The Locomotion has a good board room downstairs and plenty of space in the rooms to hang up gear if you wanted.  

The owner was really friendly and cooks up a great breakfast to get you ready for the day ahead!  

The walk to the chairlifts only took 10 easy minutes and you could catch a bus 1 min away from the pension if you were felling lazy.  It definitely felt like a home away from home so we wouldn't hesitate in staying there again!  

Thank you so much for the help again with accommodation and we both look forward to using JSA again in the future:)  Shane & Mel

Hotel Green Plaza Hakuba guest reviews

 
 
 
Early January 2017

Our group of 3 had a great time at Hotel Green Plaza Hakuba. Upon arrival, we initially had some confusion with ski passes between Hakuba Cortina/Hakuba Valley, but thankfully the communication between the staff at the hotel & Hisae enabled us to have this all fixed up within 24 hours & did not result in us having to change any of our plans. Throughout our stay we had daily issues with the Wifi, only able to connect after 9pm at night.

Hakuba Cortina itself is a smaller resort compared to others in the Hakuba Valley. There was a range of runs, particularly more beginner/intermediate with a few advanced runs. Being early in the season majority of the more advanced runs were still closed due to poor coverage. There were very small lift queues which enabled us to maximise our skiing time. The runs we were able to ski we very enjoyable! We finished our days in the onsens, which were very relaxing.

Within Hotel Green Plaza we thoroughly enjoyed our included buffet breakfast. This included both asian & western cuisines. For other meals throughout the day, there were limited options. Lunch options included 1 busy cafe/restaurant & another buffet. Dinners again had the choice of cafe/restaurant which had 3 pasta dishes, pizzas & a curry to choose from or another buffet which was JPY 3780 per person. This resort could be improved by having a bar/pub style area or having the cafe/restaurant area open later than 7:30pm.

Our transfers between Nagano station & the resort, were great. Very efficient & run perfectly on time.

We also did the snow monkey tour as a rest day. I would highly recommend this day trip & it was one of the highlights of our trip. The 2km walk up to where the snow monkeys are is quite magical! This day also included a traditional Japanese lunch & the afternoon spent at a temple in Nagano.

Overall we enjoyed our stay in Hotel Green Plaza Hakuba, but would recommend this hotel to families, rather than couples.”

I hope this helps Hisae! Thank you again for all of your organisation, we really appreciate it.


Arigato!

Mid January 2017

Fantastic trip with every detail covered.  Good prices and ski in/ out accommodation locations. Abundance of powder snow. Japan Snow Accommodation had so much local knowledge of the area and were able to direct us to our destination. The language barrier was much higher than we anticipated and it was a relief to have all the information for our transfers at hand provided by JSA prior to leaving.   They the trip was mapped out and we could follow instructions to exactly where we were going.  Well worth it for the snow and the cultural experience. Trip of a life time with two weeks of incredible snow riding.

Mid Feb 2016

My partner and I are both extremely satisfied with your services and appreciate all of your help regarding our holiday to Hotel Green Plaza Hakuba. It was definitely a highlight of our stay in Japan.  We are grateful that you arranged the upgrade to the kaiseki for no additional cost and sent plenty of information regarding access to the hotel. It was really easy coming from Tokyo and then departing to Shibu Onsen. (However, one of the bus timetables has changed and now has additional services - I'll send you the timetable when I find the brochure again!) We are really impressed with your service and the inclusions of your offer!

The moment when you come up over the hill and see the hotel for the first time is very striking. It is huge! My partner and I stayed in the roomy standard room of Hotel Green Plaza Hakuba. It was great having a spacious room after our stay in a small city room. Some of the decor and the bathroom were a little dated but the wonderful view facing the mountains made up for it. 

I would recommend other visitors to bring food for lunch and snacks during their stay but if not there is some restaurants open for lunch, which can be a little pricey, and snack food downstairs. The Wifi can be a little spotty but did the job. The best part of the hotel was the food, a two-day-rotational buffet with something for everyone and, of course, the skiing. The kaiseki was brilliant and I would recommend it to other travelers also. 

We would describe our skiing and snowboarding as intermediate and there was plenty of runs to choose from. The best part is there is little-to-no wait for a lift. Pretty much just hop on! Unfortunately for the first half of the trip there was little snow fall which led to some runs having holes or exposed plants but during the last half of our trip, there was so much powder and snow fall. The employees are very helpful and polite and many know English.

Thank you for a great trip and for all of your help along the way. I don't mind if you use this response or photos.

Mid February 2015

My group of 5 have been to many resorts in USA, Japan, and Europe before and all have varying ability levels of skiing/riding. We were pleased to find that Cortina caters for all levels with short steep tree runs for the advances and wide open groomers for intermediate. Our week was blessed with 2 feet of snow over the first 2 days and followed up by some blue bird days which made for some great conditions all literally from our front door. 

The Green plaza Hotel is truly gorgeous, it looks like it belongs in the Swiss Alps rather than a small resort in Japan. We found the rooms quite large and spacious which is a rarity in Japan as well, more than enough rooms for our group après after a day on the slopes. Buffet style Bfast an dinner was included in our package and was a treat as well with plenty of western and Japanese dishes to choose from, the all you can drink card was quite fun too.

The hotel also has a large onsen with many pools of varying depths and temperatures, one which even overlooks the slopes. A great way to sooth the sore legs that's for sure. 

All in all it was a great trip and we will be going back for sure, I cant thank Hisae enough for all her work to make it such and enjoyable trip and attending to our requests.

Late February 2014 

We had a great long weekend at Cortina and the hotel was great. Room suited us perfectly with 3 young kids (3 under 3.5), Buffett restaurant was great and ski runs and kids play park all fantastic. In the end 2 other families joined us and we were all able to ski and play together. My 3 yr old tried skis for the first time which was very exciting to see.

February 2014  

Cortina was superb and we were absolutely overwhelmed by the sheer size of the hotel and once again the staff were fantastic.

Thank you for everything you did for us. We had the most amazing time and everything went like clockwork. Your communication with us was prompt, the booking and organisation was efficient and extremely easy.They even organised transport for us back to Hakuba (Wadano) at the end of our stay.

We were once again extremely lucky with the snow and had great powder skiing.

The food was also amazing with a huge , delicious variety of food.

The mountain, although not huge, had fantastic tree runs and although we didn't go back country there was plenty of opportunity for those with the right equipment.

A free shuttle bus allowed us to go to other resorts in the Hakuba Valley, especially to visit the little villages after skiing. 

The rooms were a combination of Western and Japanese and once again we were surprised by the size of the rooms. You could easily accommodate children in your room if they slept on futons

We are very interested in returning to Cortin and would appreciate any packages you have for the 2014/2015 season.

Once again thank you for all your help.

I have attached some pics from our trio below.....

Kindest regards,

Sharon and Trevor Monk
