“The Best Choice In Furano!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We spent a few weeks at Fresh Powder Apartments over Christmas/ New year and loved this place. We managed to fit our family of 4 in the ground floor apartment, which was well equipped, modern and clean. The biggest asset to this accommodation is the manager Tim. From the time of booking through to departure, his customer service is exceptional. We enjoyed the trips into town shopping as the supermarket was an experience all in itself. It was great to have Tim in there for some handy local knowledge. The lifts and gondola to access the amazing powder is just across the road from the apartments. The rental equipment and instructors are world class(especially Sam). We really enjoyed going down to the town some nights to try out local restaurants which were all fabulous(apart from the smoking allowed within many- but hey, that's Japan still unfortunately). The New Prince Hotel nearby has many interesting things to explore along with more ski runs to try. We had been to Niseko in the past and it was a nice change to be in Furano for the more traditional Japanese element plus exceptional powder snow and facilities. If you are looking for a luxurious apartment, great location and 5 star service from Tim, don't look past Fresh Powder Apartments.

Room Tip: We chose the studio room so we could stay longer and pay a little less. Other friends have stayed pr...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I booked this apartment after reading all the reviews. It is an excellent choice. I stayed in the studio room and it is large and spacious, everything is modern and clean and you will feel very comfortable there. If there's one improvement, it is the air conditioner - think it is set to 'sleep' mode where the Aircon stops when the temperature is reached. Unfortunately that makes it very warm in summer at various points at night and disruptive for sleep. We couldn't figure out how to fix this. Would have been a 5 star rating if not for this.

The hotel choose by my wife and stay there for 2 days @ Furano. With a well equipped kitchen and go to the local supermarket for the best from hokaiddo and Furano. (beef, potato , melon,............) . Everything feel like stay @ home. Even come with PS3 and free rental on Bluerays, PS3 Games.


The Boss Hiro-san and staff Tim from Edmonton is very helpful.

I just want to agree with what others had posted that this apartment is an excellent choice.
We are a family of 4 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We paid JY28,000 for a 2 room apartment and while it may seem expensive at first glance, you will find that it represents value.
The apartment is self contained with washing machine/ dryer, oven, etc. The rooms and toilets are very well maintained and spotlessly clean.

By staying here it enhances our holiday in Furano and we left with happy memories.Will definitely
stay here again.

Every positive comment posted by various guests is absolutely "spot on".
These apartments are all one could wish for in being modern, spotless, very comfortable beds and fully self contained.

As stated by others the very close (across the street) proximity to the lifts is an added bonus just look out your window or the front door and decide if the weather suits to hit the slopes that day.

Apart from all of the above one of the special features of these apartments is Tim the Manager,
he is an absolute gem, polite and so very helpful in every way you could imagine from taking his guests into the supermarket on weekly visits (or more if required) and helping to translate the Japanese products.
To his bosses if they read these reports.....he deserves a pay rise.
Thank you Tim for making both visits so enjoyable.

We have stayed here 5 times now and each time it has been outstanding. It is the best accommodation in Furano and right opposite the ski fields. Tim is sensational with nothing ever too much trouble and offering some great dining ideas. If you want comfort, location and an outstanding trip stay at the Fresh Powder apartments.

Room Tip: Get in early as they get a lot of return visitors

We stayed in the one bedroom apartment. It is extremely well equipped and perfect for our family. Apartments are very clean and functional. Wifi included a bonus, as is washing machine/dryer in unit. Fresh powder is located as close as you can get to the gondola. Snow is sensational and Furano is a beautiful place to visit. Tim is a fantastic host, always on hand to answer any questions or help in anyway he can. He provides twice weekly shopping trips to the supermarket and deciphers the labels on the products- bonus! The only thing I can fault, is the knives are atrocious! I did a lot of cooking but could barely cut anything. Also some child friendly cups and bowls would be a bonus. We'll be back :)
