Kinta Naeba Hotel guest reviews

 

Early January 2017

Kinta is amazing. We have been twice and both types were fantastic. 

Great snow, lodge is easy walk to slopes, room is spacious with views, spotless and beautifully furnished. Owners are delightful and do everything they can to help you and make you feel at home. The food they serve up is sensational -4 course meals which were delicious. Lovely indoor/ outdoor onsen overlooking the slopes. This is a high quality lodge and is a very relaxing and enjoyable place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone and both times we went we were so impressed with everything. 

Loved it!

My friends and I have just returned from our Japanese ski holiday and I just wanted to let you know that we had an amazing time and also wanted to thank you for all the organisation you did for us before hand.

Our stays at all of the lodges were fantastic.

We were overly impressed by the hospitality, the accommodation and helpfulness of Kinta san at Kinta Naeba and the food they cooked for the evening meals was also amazing.

Thanks again for everything you did to help us have a relaxing holiday.

Late Feb 2017

I had a great time at Tomamu. 

I like being able to stay on snow, at a quality resort, with good accomodation.

The snowfalls were a little small whilst we were there, however everything else was good.

I enjoyed the quality of the accomodation, the room was well appointed, comfortable and a good size.

Loved the included buffet breakfasts. As usual the service from Japan Snow Accomodation was first class, they are quite easy to contact and correspond and very helpful with any changes or requests.

Cheers,

Thank you for organising another wonderful skiing holiday. Tomamu is a wonderful all round resort catering for families and the powder hounds with excellent off-piste areas. 

The accommodation is very clean with huge rooms in comparison to any international ski resort (my tip ask for a slope view room you won't be disappointed). 

There is a variety of excellent restaurants that do get busy, either eat early or enjoy a wine in the cafe while enjoying watching the night skiing before a later dinner. 

The off-piste tree runs are excellent and the groomed runs cater for all levels, with minimal crowds and lift queues makes for plenty of enjoyable runs.

Families are very well catered for with the wave pool and ice village an added bonus for the young and old. 

We look forward to booking another skiing trip with you for 2018.

Thought I would let you know what a wonderful time we had a Tomamu.

It really was the perfect place for our families to go this year. Accommodation was very good with great breakfasts! 

We all loved how relaxed it felt with being everything in one spot. We could let the kids have lots of time to themselves knowing they were safe pretty much anywhere they went. 

The Wave pool was a huge hit with the kids and the Ice Village was so much much better than we expected it to be.

Despite our rather messed up start with the missed flights due to Jetstar we had an amazing holiday, 

Thank you.Attached are a few shots which you are welcome to use if you need to.

A very big thanks to arrange the hotel for us. 

We enjoyed our stays at Tomamu. I think two days was a bit too short. We all loved the place as compared to Niseko. The resort is more child friendly. We have a great time. The room was cleaned and spacious. Will definitely come back again.

This is our second trip to tomamu. Again the skiing and convenience for a family with young children was top rate. However we found the waiting time for dinner to be very long  especially at the more popular restaurants. The quality and value of the meals very generally good. The hotel Breakfast was excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed then trip to Tomamu. Thank you for your recommendation. The set up there is perfect for families with young children.

The resort has many child friendly facilities like indoor play area, snow play area, Nursery etc.

The hotel rooms were comfortable and large enough for us to stretch out. Attached photo. The only small problem was that there was only 3 lifts for both guests and service staff in each tower of 30 over floors. So getting on a lift during peak hours could take a few minutes.

The skiing was very convenient. The beginner areas: magic carpet, beginner chair lift and toboggan area were right at the doorsteps of the tower hotel.

The ski area is not very large but enough variety to entertain for 4 days.

The food was of a high standard and there was enough variety. Although they do get crowded during peak hours.

The snow village was also very fun.

I can wholeheartedly recommend tomamu to families with young children.

Please let us know when it is ready to take reservations for the week before Christmas this year.

Mid December 2015

We absolutely loved Japan, especially our time at Tomamu. 

We caught the train from Tokyo, to Tomamu train station. The train trip was very cheap, and picturesque. We loved watching the land change, and when it started snowing it was hard to contain the kids excitement. We were totally blown away with how much snow laid on the ground. 

 We arrived at Tomamu Station and we were met by very friendly helpful Tower staff. As the snow fell we were ushered easily to our bus, and a quick trip later we arrived at the Towers. The staff were incredibly helpful and efficient, and our lack of Japanese was not an issue. 

We arrived at our family room and once again blown away by the size of our room, and our beautiful view. The rooms were excellent. 

The hiring of equipment was very efficient and helpful. 

The breakfasts were amazing, so many choices, Japanese and Western. The restaurants were plentiful, loads of choices, good quality food, reasonably prices for a snow resort. 

Loved the convenience store, and the tube like walkways. 

The Ice village was wonderful, not to be missed! 

Totally recommend anyone wanting a fantastic resort with loads of beautiful powder, no waiting on chairlifts, and a picturesque family friendly holiday to head to Tomamu! 

  Many Thanks for your help in making our holiday so memorable, 

Andrea, Nick, Bronte and Isaac Foran Blacksmiths Australia  

 

 

 

Early Febuary 2015

Tomamu was great. We have already booked to go back to Japan so we will definitely be going back to Tommamu. Norio san showed us some really good spots in Tommamu and we really liked the 'resort' feel there as it was something different. 

I think it is also a great family mountain and would suite the families as it's easy to get to and is child friendly. 

Cheers

Late January 2015

Firstly your service was excellent. Booking was easy, no problem with transfers. 

We arrived early and our room wasn't  ready so they minded our bags while we enjoyed the free wifi and had a coffee in the coffee shop. Our  room  view was spectacular but although we asked for standard twin, we actually had two mattresses on a tatami floor. We didn't query or complain (our mistake) but it was not very comfortable. Wifi in room was fast. Our only other issue was breakfast at Hal. Every day there were people waiting to be seated, yet there were empty tables. At our first breakfast we waited half an hour to be seated. Lots of options for dinner and the covered walkways made it easy. We originally worried that a week would be too long at this resort but it wasn't and we really enjoyed our stay. 

Regards
Janne

I loved Tomamu.  It is a small resort so only needs 3 -4 days.  I loved the outdoor onsen, it was absolutely beautiful. Fantastic to be able to eat out each night in the resort without having to go outdoors. We had fantastic powder snow and plenty of it. Awesome room in the tower and lovely breakfasts. Lovely coffee shop , wine bar also.

Hotel St Moritz guest reviews

Early January 2017

The hotel is comfortable, though they do not rent snow boards or premium quality skis. They also lack a dedicated drying room, meaning all of our gear had to be dried in our room each night. They provided breakfast as part of our package, but this was suited more to the Japanese taste than the western taste. This could be remedied by simple things such as providing toast. 

Great onsen!

We really enjoyed the skiing at Shiga Kogen, but there is no English speaking group skiing lessons available. 

We also make the comment that there were very few evening dining options in the village of Ichinose. Almost all evening dining was associated with a hotel and getting in if you were not a guest was virtually impossible.  We didn't eat at out hotel as their menu was not western child friendly and expensive. When the one ramen place closed for two nights, we had to eat instant noodles from  a convenience store. 

Overall, we enjoyed our trip, but won't go back until our kids are past lessons and the resort offers more variety of dining.

Mid January 2016

We all had a wonderful 4 week holiday in Japan.We stayed in January 2016

Thank you so much for organising our stay at St Moritz Shiga Kogen. It was our 3rd visit to Shiga Kogen and our first time staying at St Moritz Hotel.

Firstly it was an easy 5 min walk from the Ichinose Bus stop ok in good weather to walk.

We were welcomed my the manager and his wife and informed about all the facilities of the hotel.

Ski lockers are on the ground floor,as well as toilets,separate male and female onsens and free laundry facilities.We booked the larger rooms which were comfortable with 2 western beds,small lounge,wardrobe,western style cubicle bathroom,small bar fridge and balcony which was nice to look out towards the mountains.It was not luxurious but quite comfortable and warm and clean.There is no smoking in bedrooms which is great !

I really enjoyed the onsens and had one nearly every day.It was spotlessly clean,equipped with hairdyer and body wash, shampoo and conditioner.Great to sooth the skiers legs after a full day skiing.

Breakfast was ok at St Moritz but we preferred the days that they had buffet breakfast as our 2 teenage sons preferred a western style breakfast.We also tried buffet dinner which was good lots of variety around 3,000 yen .We only had this once as we felt there was too much food to eat.After having lunch we preferred a smaller meal.

You could order pizza the day before which we did and it was great. You could sit in the lounge overlooking the snow which was wonderful.

St Moritz is a smaller hotel but quite cosy and comfortable .Rooms were warm,however the last 2 nights we were moved to a corner room which was freezing.I went to reception around 11pm and they kindly brought another heater to the room.The next day they found another room which was smaller but wasn't as cold.

If couples want to book this hotel book the larger room as it it more comfortable with a small lounge and wardrobe!

I would be happy to stay at St Moritz again as staff very friendly and helpful.Itwas great to stay in hotel where guests are not allowed to smoke in the bedroom rooms. 

This hotel is suitable for families,couples or singles.It is a bit of a walk to the slopes but there is a shortcut 2 doors down with a steep walk up the hill.Easy to ski back.Overall a good hotel that doesn't cost too much.
Ski conditions great we had fresh snow about 60 cm when we arrived then a top up every few days.Plenty of variety of slopes to ski ......ShigaKogen is our favourite ski resort in Japan.Very quiet for night life but brilliant for skiing and not crowded.


We enjoyed the location as there was a few restaurants in the village, a Kasmiri restaurant which was excellent and a Japanese/Chinese restaurant which was sometimes closed through the week and a few other restaurant in the Main Street which are only open for lunch.All excellent food an well priced!

Regards Narelle and Greg Tuchin





 
 
Late January 2015

Great mountain - good terrain and snow - limited options at night (apart from your hotel) - but the best thing was it was nice and quiet. 

St Moritz - great friendly staff - a little dated but that added to the character - good location. 

Your service - very good - easy process to book - good options presented for our budget. No complaints!

Mid January 2015

We had a great trip thanks.

The St. Moritz was great thx. Everything we expected from a hotel in Ichinose. They served the eggs cold in the morning breakfast but a gentle word about how westerners like their eggs led to a change. All in all good value, great snow. Ill check in with you soon for next year!

Mid February 2014. 

Left Madarao in a snow storm and went back to Nagano. it was dumping down.


Caught bus to Shiga Kogen. It took 4 hours to get there because of the storm. Couldnt see anything travelling up. It was a white out. Wasnt sure if I got off at the right place. No one had heard of the hotel. Ended up getting someone to ring hotel & the owner came and picked me up. No english people staying there. Was a nice place for the money and good location to lifts.

One thing that I did find annoying is that they allow people to smoke on the entry level and all you can smell is cigarette smoke which travels into reception and lounge area. Same thing applies here with the arrival meal.

Shiga Kogen is a good resort with plenty of run and a huge area to ski. I found the the new snow get skied out quickly compared to Madarao. This is more apparent where the three prince hotels are in Yamibiko.

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  

Your service was excellent and much appreciated. The accommodation and price you secured for us was exactly what we were after.

And now, being aware of the holiday weekend in Japan in the middle of our stay on the snow, I appreciate how lucky we were that you were able to secure accommodation for us, with no holiday loadings. Thank you again.

The snow and skiing/boarding at Shigakogen was, as ever, excellent. I continue to be amazed at how few people you have to share the slopes with. Even with a long weekend in Japan, there were times on Saturday and Sunday when we had runs to ourselves. There was never any waiting at lifts. And, whilst it cannot ever be guaranteed, the weather was next to perfect – four nights of fresh snow, but basically clear, windless days!

We liked Hotel St Moritz. The rooms were comfortable and suited us. The onsen was adequate. Staff spoke (limited, but) enough English and were very helpful. The hotel wifi worked. Breakfast was good. But dinner was very limited. We only ate in house for dinner once, but this is not a problem as there are 3 or 4 other options for eating out which are quite good.

Also on-snow eating options for lunch are very good, so, with a decent breakfast and good lunch, dinner is less crucial.

As with most (all?) hotels in Ichinose, there is not much in the way of after-snow facilities, but there is a comfortable lounge so, with a few drinks and your own and the company of other guests, evenings can be quite pleasant.

And the big plus with the hotel is its location – just a 50 metre (albeit somewhat uphill – but it’s downhill going home!) walk to the nearest lift which effectively gives you ski/board access to the entire Shiga field. There’s about a 100 metre walk to the bus stop, shops, restaurants.

We are planning on returning to the snow in Japan and would, most likely, go back to Shiga and Hotel St Moritz.

"My finance and I stayed at Hotel St Moritz Shiga, Feb 20-24. Despite it being peak season the hotel was quiet, low key, and accordingly, relaxing.

There were a couple of other Western types in the place, one a Kiwi who had been travelling around a number of resorts on his one month Japan trip; He'd been to Hakuba and Nozawa Onsen where he'd met a many Australians. In addition to the great snow conditions, its 'magical powder', he rated Shiga Kogen for its low count of Antipodean neighbors.

We drove there in my old Mitsubishi Pajero Junior which struggled mightily to make it up the last 10k climb in heavy snow. We might not have made if it my better half didn't have the good fortune to be born a Canadian.

There is an onsen bath in the basement beside the lockers and the changing rooms. It's a basic hotel type Japanese bath that doesn't pretend to be more than functional - there are no windows for example - but it feels more than just adequate after a day exploring the many areas and trails of the resort.

Breakfast was included in the room price and was decent with a fairly wide selection of Japanese and Western breakfast staples.

We didn't sample the evening fare opting for the what we were told were limited options down the village. One night we ate at an Okinawan place that we good...nice sake and Okinawan dishes. Two nights we ate at a Nepalese place where we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves scoffing down curries and nan a-plenty.

Hotel St Moritz with its location a couple of minutes walk from the lifts and its reasonable prices was a good choice for us, an evaluation that is primarily driven by the wonderful, wonderful conditions we had on the slopes. It's all about the resort."

By John

 

"We stayed for 5 nights at Hotel St Moritz in mid January, a family of 4 with 2 older kids.

Staff were welcoming, friendly enough and efficient despite the language difficulty at times but thats our issue really, as we are the visitors to Japan and its all part of the experience.

We had booked dinner for our first night and whilst relatively expensive, it was very nice (order the Japanese dinner not Western as other guest commented they were disappointed with it) the multi course japanese dinner however we found excellent, and we certainly didn't leave hungry.

You can eat elsewhere at Ichinose for cheaper ( the nepalese Curry house for eg) but beyond that you have to search for other dinner options.

Breakfast at St Moritz were buffet style, and mix of japanese and western available and you could go back for as much as you liked so we thought it was very good value compared to other japanese hotel experiences we had where you paid for each portion.

Found the Kitchen and dining room staff to be very nice and always tried to please.

As others have said hotel is little dated in decor but everything is still clean and presentable.

We had a 4 share room with small ensuite capsule bathroom which suited our needs, but the onsen in the basement is the best option for washing/showering in any comfort.

Beds were comfortable and room was warm enough but no control over the temp.

Not much to do in the evenings except watch the sumo on the TV in your room.

Access to ski lifts was OK once you found the short cut, with small kids or if you were not that fit you would struggle with the little climb up the access way. If your a confident skier you can ski back to the front door in the afternoons when snow was good if you risked a bob sled run down the access path.

Ski storage locker room in basement with lockers just big enough for 1 set of skis and your boots. No equipment drying facility for jackets, gloves etc, and limited hanging space for this in your rooms which can be a pain as the room becomes a bit of a chinese laundry.

Overall we found St Mortitz clean, comfortable and convenient.

Would we go back to St Moritz? Probably, but we would probably also look around at other alternatives at Ichinose as well.

Snow was brilliant!"

By RFG

 

"Hotel St Moritz Shiga is situated at one end of Ichinose Village, the end you approach from Nagano Station.

It is clean, comfortable and caters well for a place to relax and recover from a hard day's skiing or snowboarding.

Beds were comfortable though the loose bedspread/blanket tended to get kicked off during the night. 

The bathrooms are 'capsule' style and very small. The hot water cut in and out, but wasn't overly annoying. However, after my first shower in the room I used the onsen to shower/bathe/rinse. The onsen was quite spartan in the sense that there were no towels provided in the adjoining room - guests needed to bring a modesty towel (provided) from the room, as well as the bathroom towel to dry off. Supplying towels in the change room next to the onsen would improve the experience. The onsen itself was good - only an indoors onsen, but good, and helped relieve tired muscles at the end of the day.

The lobby bar was never open while we were there, and we were there across a weekend. Further, when guests wanted a little apres drink/chat in the lobby after dinner, the lights were turned down, then off, giving us the hint we weren't really welcome to stay in that area. Still, better that than have rowdy guests disturb the sleep of guests in the rooms above. On a positive note, there was no issue with guests taking their own alcohol into the lobby/lounge area and alcohol is readily available in both the hotel vending machines and hotel shop.

Staff were accommodating enough. Yamamoto san booked restaurants in the village for us a couple of times when requested to do so. There are very few dining options in the village that are open to the public. There are plenty of hotels, but some allow only their guests to dine in their hotel.

Access to the snow is not ski in ski out, but there's a cut out path adjacent to the hotel/building a couple of doors down and you have a short, easy climb to Lift 28. From there you can access the whole mountain lift by lift.

Back to the hotel - it is a bit dated in terms of its decor, but that is the same as another hotel we stayed at in Shiga Kogen a couple of years ago. Hotel St Moritz was better than the other hotel. Although it is a bit dated, it is clean and 'did the job' adequately for us. Breakfast was good, I thought, but some of my companions (we were there as a group of 8) weren't happy about the food not being as hot as it could be.

All in all, an enjoyable experience from a hotel that could make some simple improvements to lift it to a new level."

By Brad

 

"This was a last minute booking for Christmas and we were lucky to find anywhere with availabilty.

The property itself is well located in ichinose but very dated. It seems that the management are winding down the property as several of the common areas were closed.

Staff were friendly enough.

Bedrooms were similarly dated with very small bathrooms.

Dinner at the hotel was very disappointing - a bizarre mix of japanese and western style fast food.

Although Ichinose does not have a huge number of dining options there are definately better places to eat."

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Elm Pension and plan to return during March to try snow shoeing as recommended by Toshi-san.

The room was perfectly heated and the beds comfortable.

Overall a great experience. 

Thank-you very much."

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.

They served up a great French Dinner and breakfast as well."

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

Late Feb 2017

My son previously had a ski accident and after two hours of travel to Nozawa he really needed to rest. Sam at Shikinoyado was very helpful and able to accommodate us straight away, which I appreciated very much. The location is excellent for skiers so that you don’t need to walk around the hilly town in ski boots.

Our time in Nazawo onsen was fantastic. Kawahiro was great and the total Japanese immersion that we wanted. A bonus was that it is located by the gondola. 

Thanks,
Marita 
 
 
Early January 2015

We LOVED Nozawa. Love the ski in ski out accommodation. The only downside of Kawahiro is the smoking in the foyer which can travel up to the rooms. Next time we will request 100% non smoking.

We prefered the wider runs as 3 of us board and the others ski. This was only the second time the kids have skied and they did 10 days straight which was impressive. I would like to book 3 of them in for a lesson on our first day this next time. We really enjoyed the cultural experience when we travel. 

Loved Tokyo too as you can see we took kids to zoo and we also went to the sumo tournament which we all throughly enjoyed.

We flew direct with jetstar last time and stayed overnight at the Airport hotel and then traveled the following day which was great.  

Next year we were thinking 5 days skiing in one place and 5 days skiing in another then back toward Tokyo for 2-3 days before heading home. Would love to see the Geisha museum,  Hiroshima and anything else you recommend. Thanks in advance for next year..

Early January 2015

Kawahiro could not be closer to the Nagasaka Gondola (a few metres?).Definitely ski in and ski out and it made it very easy for our family to come in from the slopes whenever and head out skiing multiple times throughout the day if needed.

It is further from the main street for restaurant dinners though and the walk back up is steep-ish and can feel long if it is snowing heavily and you are trudging up with a full belly. We have tried the onsite restaurant set dinner (hot pot) and it was yummy but probably better for adults who can appreciate the large and complicated array of dishes, rather than kids (we asked for the more basic katsu don for the boys). Japanese breakfast is included (we also had cornflakes and milk with ours - possibly only included for foreigners?), which was a great novelty at the start but there were days when we probably just felt like toast! :)

The place is very traditional Japanese with tatami mats that can take some getting used to if you prefer softer beds. There is a clean and spacious onsen on site and while we also explored the village onsens, the onsite onsen (open from 4-10pm) made it very convenient if we didn't feel like heading out till dinner.

If you are looking for a ski lodge then this is not the place for you as other than the onsen and a smoking area on the ground floor, there is really no common areas to hang out in other than your actual room. Our room was a relatively spacious one for our family of 5 on the 3rd floor (the stairs will keep you fit!). Bathrooms are shared and the staff will give you a daily supply of hot water thermos for making tea etc.

This last one is looking out from our window!

Your service - top notch and smooth as usual. We will contact you next time we are in Japan again. :)

Nozawa the resort - even better than last time as there was more snow and lifts open (we were spring skiing in late March on our first visit). Hope this helps. :)

Cheers Mel


 

 

"Was honestly one of the best holidays I have ever had!

A perfect mix of a new exciting cultural experience, and some of the best powder I have ever ridden!!!!!

Accommodation was great, Authentic Japanese accomodation, within meters of main Nozawa gondola. Nice clean accomodation. Authentic rooms (small, with futon beds).

Breakfast authenic Japanese (takes some getting used to, but proivdes plenty of energy for big day on the slopes!).

Extremely close to nagasaka gondola, and 10min walk down hill to town.

Shared onsen bathroom (no private showers, again takes bit of getting used to, but the heat and healing of onsen water is well worth it!).

Good accomodation for the price. ). Already saving the pennies for a trip back there next year"

"Traditional ryokan that was great to experience, 1 minute form the chairlift, 

very traditional food( may not want to eat it everday), tatami room (being a western person I would have liked a seat)but it was all part of it."
