Staff was very friendly and they are very helpful. Also their response were very quick and we appreciate their service a lot (pick up / drop off service were arranged on spot and it was comfortable) Ski drying room were a little difficult to find.... so maybe their sign can improve a little.

As Good As It Gets!
This was my second visit to Akazora. On my own this time, 12 nights. I had a street front studio that met all my needs, comfortable bed, functional kitchenette, wall mounted flat screen TV that swivelled to all parts of the room, cable has an adequate range of English language channels. Akazora has particularly nice bathrooms and a small laundry off that room in its own alcove. I ate in a lot and the kitchenette worked out well. Akazora is extremely convenient to the town of Hirafura with it's restaurants and bars, there's a shuttle stop right at the door and shuttles run about every 20 minutes to either Hirafura or Hanazono mountain base. There's also an undercover carpark if you have a car and the ski lockup is next door to the carpark. The staff are all lovely people, Nikki on reception was really friendly and helpful and gave a lift to the bus station on the last day. I really enjoyed my stay. The photo is Mt Yotei (no ski) taken from Mt Annupuri (ski).
