Thanks once again for booking our accommodation.  Our hosts at Annex Aburaya were amazing and so accommodating. English was a challenge but google translator helped massively. It had a real Japanese feel and the breakfast and dinner was great. The ski lifts and slopes are just outside the front door across the road so a hop, skip and a jump and you are off down the mountain. Madarao Ski Resort is sure one not to be missed. The runs are perfect for all levels of skiing. Those who like a bit of off piste stuff well this is the mountain for you as it is aloud. We will be heading back for sure. If you are looking to get away from the now more popular ski resorts in Nagano check out Madarao you will not be disappointed. 

Cheers Larissa

We spent 4 days boarding in Madarao, staying at Aburaya. Each evening we ate in the pension, and the food was amazing. Although the owners did not speak much English, language was not an issue as they made a huge effort, and the hospitality was first class.

This place was perfect. The owners were so hospitable and made a huge effort for us. Nothing was too much trouble. The meals were all excellent and on our last night we were really treated to some fine dining Japanese style! delicious! The location was also perfect as it was right next to the chairlift. The perfect hosts and great value for money is how i would describe my stay.
