Not flash and a little bit ragged around the edges but a very pleasant, relaxed and conveniently placed hotel.Great western and Japanese rooms, english speaker on staff to help.

Spent 5 nights at Daimaru hotel, staying in a Western/Japanese combination room. The room was spacious and comfortable with an option to sleep on 'standard' beds or on traditional futon beds. There is a fridge in room for cold drinks and a water boiler for tea, coffee (or huge pot noodles!). There's free wifi in the hotel lobby so me... More

The ski company that reccommended this hotel to us, needs to get out here, have a look for themselves and give them some advice to the hotel owners before reccommending it to other Westerners. Diamaru is clearly a much loved hotel by its regular guests who come up from Tokyo for a few days skiing, and when travelling with small... More
