Our family of four stayed at Kimamaya for a week in January. For three of us this was our first visit to the snow and our experience was made all the more magical due to the service, advice and care provided by Peter and Haruka. Thank you also to the friendly, welcoming staff at The Barn who remembered our orders and just how we liked our coffee! Thank you Peter for recommending and organising dinner reservations, skiing coaches (for mum!) and many other helpful tips. Thank you for providing us a phone so that I (mum) could call you when I had enough of the lessons and could retreat to our lovely room.

I stayed here with a group of 8ish people for 5 nights the first week of February 2018 and it was absolutely incredible. Peter and his staff made us feel so welcome. The breakfast at The Barn every morning was a magical way to start the day and the onsens after a long day of skiing were perfection.

Can't wait for my next visit!

Superb Hotel. The service is impeccable, the rooms ultra comfortable, the best hotel breakfast I've ever encountered and I've had more hotel breakfasts than anyone ever wants. Exceptional masseuse, hot tubs and epic snow. The Barn Restaurant is fantastic as well. I'm running out of superlatives. I'll not be looking around next year but coming straight back to Kimamaya.

I stayed at the Kimamaya hotel for 10 days in February. The hotel itself is a beautiful as the pictures show. Everything is cozy and comfortable. The dry rooms for ski equipment and clothes was great to have and had all our gear dry and warm at the start of each day. The private onsens were perfect for soothing aching legs. Breakfast and dinner at The Barn were excellent.

What really makes this hotel special, though, is the staff. Peter and his team were INCREDIBLE. They are so friendly and excited to help your stay be great. They helped us with transfers from the airport, dinner reservations, bus tickets to other ski hills in the area, and every little detail you can think of. They immediately new us all by name and picked up on our preferences quickly. Just genuinely good people.

Can't wait to stay here again!

This hotel makes you feel at home, the rooms are spacious and luxurious, the lounge very warm and charming and the staff led by Peter is all about providing you with a personalised service. They offer service to take you to the slopes with a mobile phone to be picked up when you finish your runs. They are extremely well connected and will help you with your dining booking as well as guiding. The Hot bath is special and the massage fantastic. You will also enjoy the weekly welcome drinks with great stories shared by the guests. Best place to stay in Hirafu by far.
