The hotel - not so great to be honest. It was very old and the decor extremely dated.  The other issue for me personally, all these low doorways. I bumped my head a few times on the doorframe to our bedroom and heading towards the dining area. It was warm and clean - so cannot fault that.  It's just not a hotel type we are used to. It was nice and close to the snow and conveniently located, so we cannot fault that. Myoko was awesome and I wish we could've spent more time there.

 Have you been to this hotel yourself?  


Thank you very much for your email and feedback.
I have inspected Akakura Hotel. I agree with you. It is dated. Myoko doesn’t have many nicely renovated accommodation. If you are considering to go back again, I would suggest to stay at Oyado Furuya which is one of the best accommodation. This one fills up very quickly so you need to book early.
Thanks again for booking with us. Look forward to assisting your trip to Japan in the future!
Kind regards,

Thanks for the reminder. I have been meaning to thank you for organising our accommodation in Japan. The Akakura Hotel was wonderful. The rooms were great with the bedroom plus living room made it perfect for a family trip – we had two little ones 2 and 4 years old. Great staff and perfectly located just 200m from the lifts and right near the centre of all the restaurants. Could not have asked for more. Thank you!

Thank you for organising our Japan snow trip for us.

The Akakura Hotel Annex. This was an interesting hotel. The ceiling was very low as was the doors. I am only 6ft tall and had to duck all the time for fear of hitting my head. The Akakura hotel itself looked great although we didn’t see inside any rooms, but the annex section was a different storey. The room was a good size but the bathroom was so tiny we had to rest our knees on the wall when going to the toilet to fit in. Perhaps the worst bit was the boiler kicked in at 6am and 9pm to warm the hotel and it was so noisy that nothing could sleep through it. The beds were much better, but the service was no way near as good. The reception at the annex was not available a lot of the time, and so a long walk down an alleyway to the Akakura Hotel was needed on many occasion for assistance. The onset at the Akakura hotel was one of the best I have been it, but the the annex indoor onsens was so hot I could not even get in it. The location was very good however. I would recommend the Akakura hotel, but definitely not the Akakura Hotel Annex.
I will contact you mid year about next years snow trip.
Kind regards
