As I sit here with the snow falling in a comfortable lodge style lounge area, listening to music after having enjoyed a beautifully prepared meal, I can't imagine why you would consider staying anywhere else. We have stayed in big hotels twice on this skiing trip and they just don't compare for personal service. Takeshi goes out of his way... More

Our third stay at Fuji with host Takeshi and his wife Kimmy. We have stayed at so many places in Japan but Fujio is by far the best. The rooms are clean (we get the ensuite), not a bad size, ski room, great lounge area and the food is amazing. Jimmy creates a 5 course meal or the hot pot... More

Fujio Pension in Madarao, Nagano is a wonderful place to stay. The owners, Takeshi and Kimi, are so very warm and treat you like they've known you for years. Kimi's cooking is sublime and you must have her dinners there when staying. The Pension is warm and rooms are a good size, and beds very comfortable.

Stayed at Fujio pension. Very clean and comfortable. Takeshi & Kimi are the owners. Kimi is a fantastic cook and the dinner meals are great value. I found Takeshi helpful, although a little strange aswell. Maybe it was the language barrier. He could be a bit more friendlier. He seemed to give preferential treatment to past guests, instead of giving... More

My husband and I returned this year for a second visit. We booked breakfast a and dinner this year after we saw how amazing the food was last year. It's a couple minutes drive to slopes and main centre, but Takeshi the host will drop you off and pick you up. We were lucky enough to ski back in the... More

We've stayed in many good places in Japan over the past decade but Fujio is our favourite. When we discovered this wonderful pension four years ago, we were impressed. Nothing has diminished. Wonderful food and guest relations are Takeshi and Kimie's priority. Looking forward to our fifth visit in 2015.

We found Madarao by chance just browsing through skiers blogs about skiing in Japan and thought we'd give it a chance. We were super pleased with the accommodation at Fujio Pension, Takeshi speaks great English and makes sure you feel at home and also that you have an excellent day of skiing. Our only concern was that transport may be... More

We stayed at Fujio Pension on the basis of the reviews we had read on Tripadvisor. We certainly weren't disappointed even thou "the bar" had been set quite high, Takish is an excellent host. Nothing was too much trouble. His English is very good and he has a very good sense of humour. We were lucky enough to spend adorning... More

Our third visit to Fujio Pension was even more enjoyable and we felt as if we were returning to see old friends. Kimie's cooking is simply fabulous and Takeshi is a wonderful host. Together they make a great team, ensuring their guests are comfortable, happy and well cared for. We're already planning next year's holiday and wouldn't consider staying anywhere... More
