  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

The only negative I can say about my experience is that check-in is at 3pm (no earlier), which is fine until you get charged 500yen just to store your bags until a room is available.

Great Service

A choice of western or traditional Japanese style rooms to choose from with both options available for dinner and breakfast this hotel pleases all. Amazing onsen where you can relax after a full day of skiing. Clean and tidy hotel.

3.0 out of 5 Okay

    There was no room cleaning on Sunday - we were only told at time of check-in. Early check-in (ie. before 3pm) needs to pay 2000 yen - we were only told at time of check-in. You even cannot just leave your luggage at the concierge (for free) even though you arrived early - each piece of luggage cost 500 yen. Guests can smoke in the hotel lobby - making the lobby very stuffy. Sunday breakfast was buffet type - very good quality and reasonable number of choices. Mon/Tue only have set breakfast. If you are not too use to traditional Japanese type of of food, you might not find it too attractive. The good thing is there is limited serving of rice (breakfast and dinner).

    best value walking 75 yards from base of slopes.

    the resort had the best powder skiing I've experienced in my life. The hotel has seen better days but is clean and reasonably priced. The staff went out of their way to help us in a town where we were the only nonjapanese. Everyone was friendly and we would love to come back.
