Ani/Hotel Fusch – another great stay with the amazing hosts at Hotel Fusch.  Will be back again! Thanks again Hisae for all your help with the booking!






Early feb 2024

Our stay at Hotel Fusch was a real treat. The family and team who run Hotel Fush, and guests staying there, is what makes it special. If you have any questions, someone is there to help. The location is perfect. It’s a real extended family vibe which we absolutely loved. We will be back.

Hisae at Japan Snow Accommodation was a life saver in making the booking, as we really wanted to go here but couldn’t figure out how to book it. And when we had to make some changes they went above and beyond to help. It was seamless and really great communication. I thoroughly recommend the team at Snow Japan Accommodation.

We stayed at Hotel Fusch in January 2023 and loved it!  It is clean, warm, just down the road from Ani (the hosts will drop you off at Ani and pick up each day). The hosts are extremely hospitable and serve great traditional food.  10 out of 10. We will be back!

The place was quite quirky but fine, it all worked.

Not fancy, Semi Onsen was much nicer but we enjoyed folks we met. Ani had good snow, and the place was close to the ski hill.
Overall it was fine for 3 nights

Hotel Fusch is Japan’s Faulty Towers. Don’t expect a classy hotel but do expect a welcoming hostess, reasonable food and an inexpensive ski experience.
Ani as a ski resort is more suited to off piste experts as there are only two lifts with modest terrain. The gondola looks attractive but does not provide other than a long ski out to the bottom lift. There are better places to ski in Tohoku.

Hotel Fusch is quirky but fun and good value

Thanks for help ,esp train travel. Managed it all as in my young days

Were lucky in Ani with snow . Would have been very dull without fresh. Hotel Fischer a lot like Fawlty Towers, if you ever saw it. Food not great, but who cares.  
Thanks again

Loved Hotel Fusch - and the owner who was sooo hospitable. Rooms large as were meals. Hotel has an absolute eclectic charm which was off-set by the cute regional train journey to get there. The skiing offered quiet slopes, some tree skiing and powder that you expect when in Japan. As usual excellent service from Hisae and Japan Snow Accommodation.

I really loved Hotel Fusch, it was very quirky and cool, the people who work there are lovely, the resort wasn't so great.

  • Old style

  • Fantastic

  • Quiet

  • Loved Hotel Fuchs. We wre in awe at how our hostess does everything. Cooks, drives us up to slopes, seems to help with catering at the gondola base.... Great skiing

  • Transport by Jungko all worked well

  • Loved the area and planning to go back cycling

Great location and easy access to Ani Ski Resort.
This area seems to get a crazy amount of snow but as we found with many of the Northern Tohoku resorts, heavy snow is often accompanies by strong winds, and often and as we experienced, the Ani Ski Resort will shut down the top lift or Gondola in these conditions limiting how much of the resort one can access. What we did ski was fantastic.
Hotel Fusch itself is cozy and comfortable. The beds were also comfortable and the rooms very large. The amenities such as shower/toilet were adequate yet dated.
The Japanese owners only spoke limited English but no problems in communicating. We found them to be hospitable and friendly. The food was actually fantastic, traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast. These were included in the price.
I have no hesitation in recommending this as a place to stay, particularly as there is limited other Hotel options that are easily booked from Australia and within close access to the resort.
Thanks for your assistance with regards to our holiday bookings. You will certainly hear from me again.
Best regards, Rob.

What an amazing experience of Japanese hospitality and old fashioned service we received at Hotel Fusch. From the pick up from the station at the beginning of our stay to the beautiful meals and daily lifts to and from the ski fields we could not have asked for better service. The quaint, older style hotel with huge rooms was very unexpected and our hostess was an amazing bundle of energy.

We were blessed with deep powder snow and very few people on the slopes. Due to very heavy snow, (blizzard conditions) we were unable to do any back country skiing but enjoyed the snow on piste.
A great place if you like getting away from the international crowds and would like a true Japanese experience.
