Although we are staying in Owashi Lodge in Summer (early June), we can tell it is a superb location for winter as it is super near the ski area at Mt Annupuri. Not only that, I feel it is a great base for climbing Mt. Yotei. The reason we chose Owashi Lodge as it is very affordable, good base for... More

Very affordable, practical, super well located! Had a great experience there for a full week at the lodge! Noisy young Auzi guys, putting a lot of ambiance in the corrdidors and the kitchen but so far nothing crazy. Just a great time and super base camp for skiing

First off, the location was great. Half way up the main hill, between the seico mart and the welcome centre. Easy access to the lifts in the morning (or the bus if you want to start the day at Hanazono). The rooms were very basic, but good at the same time. 2 of us stayed there, we had a private... More

I had a great stay at Owashi lodge. not the cheapest around but has a great location, friendly helpful staff and lots of fun. It was a very clean place and plenty of room to chill out or party. Our room was on the small side, and the pillow was ordinary but the bed was comfortable. It has an awesome... More

I've spent a lot of time in hostels around the world, and this was definitely a hit. Happily recommend staying here to anyone. Close to the slopes and it has a board storage area. Its clean, has pretty decent beds, is relatively quiet and the staff are helpful. The new bar downstairs just blew me away with all new pool... More

I would not say this is the best place to stay but if you are in budget, it is definitely a great place to crash. The room where not big but it has a basin and a window. The bed and pillow was not fantastic but bearable. The heater was good since it was really cold except that its all... More

This hotel was recommended by another hostel that was full. We didn't know exactly where it was and that it was located away from Kutchan. Storm, the fellow at the desk offered to pick us up at the train station for 1000 Yen which was probably half what a taxi would cost. The place was mostly empty in the off... More

We were a group of 5 travelling together for the snowboarding. We wanted to save a little on the lodging, and found Owashi Lodge! It was perfect for us. We stayed in the mixed dorm, and somehow got the whole room to ourselves. (Of course we went off season) We stayed there for 3 nights. While we were there, we... More

I stayed in a single bunk bed room for a week in February. While not glamorous, the room was comfortable. There was enough storage for the two of us, a heater and a small desk in addition to the bunk bed. The bathrooms were clean, though clearly well used over the years. One slight annoyance was the fact each sex... More
