Everyone was quite content. One guy asked for a bread roll about 20 times to which they'd nod and say yes....it never came. Was pretty funny actually. I ordered karaage and added some soy and chilli powder. Rather tasty and washed down with a Kirin beer. Great location right at the base of the gondola and the food here is... More

We have just got home from our best skiing holiday ever! This year we had a party of nine family and friends including a "never ever" skier, and did a lot of research looking for good value accommodation in a position that made skiing easy for everyone. We chose Butter Milk as it was only 40m across the snow to... More

Great accomodation, comfy bed, never cold, good shower and probably the best location if you are riding at happo. Restaurant serves really good food. Only thing it lacked on our visit was a younger crowd but was also good there being no noise when going to sleep unlike most hostel style places.

Cosy, welcoming, spotlessly clean, perfect location and lovely owners. Naoko and H made us feel completely at home. Opening our bedroom window on arrival at 2am ( Naoko got up to let us in and show us round) to be greeted by a sleeping chairlift not 5m away was immediately encouraging. Ski hire from the affiliated ski hire shop just... More

This trailside inn was fantastic and the owners were extra friendly. They treated me like a family member by picking me up at the train station, taking me to the rental shop, taking me out to dinner with them, dropping me off at the bus etc. etc. They went out of their way and made it so easy (Actually my...

Naoko and Eiichi made our stay so enjoyable in January 2014. They helped with taxi booking as they both speak English, and recommended a great restaurant, onsen and ski hire place. We (2 families) put the 4 kids in the bunk room and had a room each to ourselves all next door to each other. Great view of the mountain... More

We stayed at Butter Milk for 4 nights and there is no doubt in my mind that it is the best resort in the area. It is right on the mountain, next to the gondola lift which goes to the top of Happo One. The resort owners are the friendliest people I have met. Naoko went way out of her... More

Really loved our stay at Buttermilk in January. Naoko and Eiichi regularly went out of their way to help and make sure we had a great time. We stayed with another family and the room set up was ideal with all four kids in a bunk bed room. The location next to the gondola is fantastic with transport close by... More

I stayed at Buttermilk for 12 days over Jan / Feb 2014. The hosts Naoko and Eiichi were amazing and went to a great effort to ensure a great stay. The location is fantastic, right on the snow and next to the gondola. The food was very tasty and filling after a big day skiing. Couldn't recommend it any higher.... More

I had a fantastic stay at Butter Milk for 10 nights during January 2014. I cannot more highly recommend this pension; the owners are amazingly generous and friendly. The location could not be closer to the main gondola and one of the major ski runs, you cannot beat the location for ski in/ski out. It is also next door to... More
