I had stayed with Hoshino Resorts last year which is how I discovered Kai Alps. Following several days business in Kyoto I came here mainly for a few days skiing. When I arrived it was snowing, and my large tatami suite on the 4th floor had a great view out to the Alps. First stop was the open air Onsen,... More

Although the staff speaks limited English, we managed to communicate and checked into our room without much fuss. The room is very well maintained, spacious and clean. The service is warm and friendly and has a... More
