This amazing chalet hotel with natural hot spring onsens and sooo much snow for skiing was a highlight of our Japanese winter holiday. The buffet breakfast and dinner (included in the price) had a really good blend of traditional food and western food and our children really enjoyed it. There is a washing machine and dryer for washing. There is... More

I was coming to visit the monkey park. I chose this hotel based on the high TA ratings and a 4 star rating in booking.com. This hotel is tired and worn. It certainly is not a 4 star hotel near more like a one star or a 1 1/2 star hotel. It was absolutely not worth what I paid, and... More

This hotel was... More

It is a charming older property with a wonderful woody lobby, big fire place, and a well stocked convenience store. The best part? The Japanese bath and the all you can eat buffet, breakfast and dinner! AND they price is... More

We were recommended this hotel, as well as its sister hotel, Biyu no Yado Yudanaka View Hotel ,by the ticket office on a Navy base and for good reason. They took wonderful care of my family and ensured that we had a great skiing experience. Our children had never seen snow and never had been on a ski slope before.... More
