We stayed here for 5 nights. It was a fabulous location. Central but really quiet. Lovely, kind staff, who could not have been more friendly, welcoming or helpful. They really are the best. The food was lovely. Onsens are brilliant. One of the best drying rooms for ski gear. We had a futon room, so would recommend a western bed for better comfort. Place is older but still nice and welcoming.

We were a group of two families with teenage children staying at the hotel for 7 nights in January 2018 for a ski trip. From the moment we were met at the Myoko station by the hotel owner, all our requests were taken care of.
Great Onsen, fabulous location in the Main Street with easy access to cafes, restaurants, ski hire, post office (ATM) and bus stop.
Make sure that you eat in the in house Restaurant as the Japanese banquet was fantastic.
Rooms are a great size. My family of 3 teenage children and myself stayed in a combination Western and Japanese’s room. It was clean and well appointed and provided plenty of space.
Drying room works very well with lift access from your floor to the basement and then a door that exists to the street.

Fantastic hotel and onsen, staff, location, comfort and cleanliness all 5 stars.

We were picked up on time at the train station in two vehicles, check in was perfect, rooms are spacious and very clean.

End to end this is a very special place to stay.

We stayed 6 nights at Oyado Furuya for a ski trip and was very happy over all with our stay. The best thing about this Ryokan is its location -- right in the middle of the town, so every shop, restaurant ski rentals, and also the ski lifts are all within a few minutes walk from your accommodation. Akakura is not big anyway, but I feel the majority of the hotels are towards one side of the town, whereas Furuya is more centrally located.

This is a small place, I think 12-13 rooms in total so it has a more intimate feel that some of the other bigger hotels in town. We got 3 standard rooms between the 6 of us, 2 were western style rooms and 1 was Japanese style. I would recommend the Japanese style room over western style as it feels much more spacious. The western standard room's layout with the divider makes it feel rather cramped. Of course if you pay more and book the larger room types this won't be an issue. With the standard twin western style room, the heater fan is right next to one of the beds and it blows right at you while you are sleeping. So one person is going to be much hotter than the other. The beds are super comfy though and the blankets very thick so we were ok to turn the heater off for most the night.

Breakfast also comes in 2 styles -- western and Japanese, and you will have to state which you would like the day before. It's very decent hearty breakfast and we alternated between the 2 styles during our stay but found that within each style it does not change much from one day to another.

English is not a problem here as there are 3-4 Australian staff/interns who can give you all the information about the Ryokan facilities, ski passes, rentals etc. For facilities, Furuya has two onsen rooms, one for men and one for women. They do switch them so that you can experience both rooms if you go in at different time of the day. But as I personally like to use the onsen at the end of the day before going to bed, I just got to go to the same room everyday. Would prefer it if they would switch it by the day of the week instead, so that I could still go at the same time and get to use both rooms.

There is a storage and drying room on the bottom floor. I prefer bringing my skis back here rather than leaving them at the rental place as it's more central to all the lifts in town, and if you decide to go night skiing you can do it on a whim rather than having to decide beforehand. Another nice plus here is that you can send your clothes out for laundry and it's 1000 yen each time regardless of the amount, comes back within the same day if you send it out in the morning.

We all loved Akakura and Myoko Kogen which totally exceeded all expectations. We go to different ski destinations in Japan every year and this area is our favourite so far. Oyado Furuya is a solid choice with good value and we would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to discover wonderful Myoko Kogen.

Room tip: Japanese rooms are more specious than western rooms

Conveniently located next to rentals, ski schools and the lifts! Rooms are clean, friendly staff and there is an Onsen on the top floor. Serves an excellent Japanese keiseki dinner! We chose a western room, it’s still very Japanese except for the beds. The mattress was slightly too firm for me, but I don’t have a problem sleeping after an exhausting day on the slopes. You can access the ski storage area by taking the lift down to the basement and walk out a small door to the street directly.
