The first thing that struk me about this 'Pension' was the fact that Mike (the owner) would give me a lift every day to wherever I wanted to go for nothing... I did offer but to his credit he simply refused! This was massively helpful as we could check out three seperate ski resort which were fairly far apart from each other.
The faculities here were relatively basic, TV, bed, breakfast etc. Although there was an unrealistically big plasma TV in the main bar room. My kids loved playing on the Playstation there!
The atmosphere was very friendly and for the price we got a real bargain. We also found great English speaking skiing tuition for our children from this place. On the flipside i would say that the community showers were slightly inconvinaint, it's not the Ritz but for the price i suppose it is fair.
Had a great time here, see you next year Mike!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hawk and Hare Inn sits 800 metres up Mount Myoko just north of Nagano, Japan. Besides its deep powder snow (over 6 metres in places), Myoko offers some of the best terrain for off-piste and back-country sliding in Japan. The green season offers tennis (12 courts in the back garden) and golf (5-minute walk) as well as mountain hot springs and mountain-biking. Enjoy. ... more less
