We enjoyed the Skiing but the Semi Onsen  was fabulous. The staff looked after our every need and they were delightful the best Japanese experience. 

If they wish to improve on an already great experience adding a dedicated shuttle bus with a bit more flexibility would make just that much better.Would most certainly go back.

Thank you for the work you put in to make that happen.

Kind regards

It was our first time staying at a ryokan and we loved  the Japanese experience at Semi Onsen. The rotenburo was my favourite and was simply beautiful. Often, I had it all to myself. The local ladies and other Japanese visitors who visited the onsen were so friendly, that I finally got some much needed Japanese practice.  We stayed in a western twin room that was immaculately clean, quite spacious and comfortable. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The meals were Japanese style with many, many beautifully prepared, delicious courses.

"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."

Early January 2017

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

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

She was able to answer all our questions about travel, transfers,
money etc Would have no hesitation in recommending Japan Snow

Thanks again for your help.

We will be in touch about our next trip to Japan.

"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"

Lodge Scole

Early February 2016

We had a fantastic time skiing and boarding at Zao Onsen in February this year. We had a mix of weather conditions to contend with. One truly bluebird day was ideal for heading to the top of the mountain. The snow monsters were fantastic to see and it was hard to take a bad photo! I've sent you one taken from the Gondola. There was plenty of terrain to keep us skiing from first tracks to the end of the day. Lunches were spent, usually, in the village, exploring the local family run ramen houses.

The snow quality was very good, not as deep as previous visits to Japan, but every day there was a dump and often it snowed through the day which meant fresh tracks could be found all day. The middle of the day was certainly the busiest time for tourists to catch the gondolas to the top of the mountain, to view the snow monsters. The queues are quire long at this time, but it's possible to bypass the crowds and catch 2-3 chairlifts to get access the main ski areas. It took us a good day  and a bit to get our bearings around the mountain. Particularly as the visibility was poor so it was tricky navigating turn offs along runs and not ending up somewhere unexpected!! Zao Onsen offered us plenty of piste opportunities and some off piste moments which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Your recommendation of Lodge Scole for our accommodation, was a great one! The lodge is family run. The staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly and Mao ensured our stay was very comfortable. The location of the lodge is fairly good. It's about a 10 minute walk in the morning to the first gondola. I imagine if there is a really big dump then you could ski the whole way back to the lodge! 

Our room was spacious and comfortable. We had a great view of the mountain and have sent you a photo of it. The food was plentiful and delicious. The lodge has it's own male and female onsens. They're small and both my partner and myself had them to ourselves each evening when we used them. They were super clean and relaxing. The free wifi in our room was a bonus.

Thank you very much Hisae for your outstanding customer service. I happily recommend Japan Snow Accommodation to our friends who ask about our trips and will continue to do so.

Many thanks and I'm sure you'll hear from us for our trip planning for next year.

Kind regards,

Xanthe and Johnny

Hisae 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.

Family run Lodge Scole is like your home away from home.The rooms are very cosy and look out onto the mountain.I had the dinner and breakfast deal, the meals were wonderful.Mrs Ojima took great pride in her cooking and explaining what was in her delicious meals, dinner was usually at least 3 courses, if not 4. I had some beautiful meals during my stay.The lodge is  about a five minute walk from the bus station.I enjoyed very much staying with Ojima family and the very accomodating staff who work there.

The lodge is located close to the Unwanodai slope.The village of Zao Onsen sprawls along the base of the ski resort.There are some wonderful outdoor hot springs .

My travel mates and I had a spectacular time at Woody House Kazamidori. Midori was delightful and such a sweet host: She and her husband went out of their way to pick us up and drop us off, give us directions and recommendations, and make the most incredible breakfasts! The entire house was cozy and comfortable, including the bedrooms and baths. Woody House Kazamidori was truly our favorite place that we stayed in Japan. We hope to go back and stay there again!

Myoko was also amazing - we had some of the best skiing of our lives at Akakura Kanko. On-mountain and side-country both offered great woods skiing, and it hardly stopped snowing our whole time there! We also took a side trip to see the Snow Monkeys - well worth it. We will definitely go back to Myoko to continue exploring amazing skiing.

We thank you so much for providing great recommendations, and for helping coordinate this wonderful experience. Your promptcommunication helped us out tremendously as we planned our trip.


Thanks again - until next time!
