Great location right in front of the ski lifts and gondola but that's not even the best part about this hotel!! The owner, Ms. Misawa is so accommodating and goes above and beyond. I left my smart phone at the hotel after checking out and she helped to send it back home for me in such a timely manner. Thank you so much! About the hotel, it has a cool lounge area with jazz music and bar(even Yamazaki whiskey!) that you can chillax after a long day of skiing. The hot springs bath is just big enough and super relaxing. Not all hotels in this area have a natural hot spring bath so this was a big plus. Also, I highly recommend adding 1,000yen for the all you can eat shabu-shabu dinner! Looking forward to coming back and staying here again!

This is a true ski in ski out hotel with a backdoor right on the slope, unlike other hotels on the slope, when you step out the back door, you're standing right on the snow. It's very important to me as I do not like to walk on the ground to hurt my ski boots. I'll call that a true ski in ski out. Hotel location is about 10~20 mins walk from the bus station, but I did not know how much time exactly as hotel pick up and drop us from and to the bus stop. Nice touch which I did not get last time at Tsugaike Kogen when I stayed at other hotel which is very far from the bus station and up slope. Hotel owner is very professional and yet very warm, it's the real Japanese style hospitality spirit. You would see the owner is honoring the name of the hotel ( which I believe it's the name of the owner ) and is reaching the perfect score for it. I've stayed at Japanese room 303, with a basin ( cold / warm water both ) , and a toilet ( with washlet ). Room is newly furnished, spacious, TV ( I didn't use much ). Hotel itself has real onsen ( hotspring ) , laundry( I didn't have time to use ) , heater, ski locker..etc. everything I would need for a ski trip. I have taken a few more photos which I believe would be very helpful for others searching for this hotel. ( would be very helpful for me if I saw those photos when I was looking for hotels ) There are many nice gestures provided by the owner, and I deeply appreciate it.
