Our recent 10 day stay at Lodge Side Hill was our fourth ski trip to Japan. As usual, the snow was fantastic, but this time the hospitality experienced at Lodge Side Hill was beyond exemplary.

The couple that run it are so nice and could not do enough for us. They ferried us to and from the bus, to the slopes and even... More

The breakfasts and four course dinners were superb - like having your own personal chef. Great facilities and service! Perfect for singles or couples who like a Japanese experience, in a small pension.

We really enjoyed our stay at Side Hill. The owner/chef/barman Kikuo was a great host and really made us feel very comfortable staying at his Pension. The highlight of our stay was the food! Kikuo is an outstanding cook, and we really loved the breakfast we had each day and all the various dinners. We also had some funny, entertaining... More
