Was there during xmas. Very cold but children loved the snow play and I loved the outdoor hotspring. Buffet was the best I had. They served the japanese crab leys whicb was very fresh. Simiaely jaoanese melons were very sweet. Yummy. Only thing I didn't like was the hotel bathroom, which is quite smelly. Overall it was a good stay.... More

I am renting the Japan style room, really good and very different for a westerner. This is a really excellent hotel (four stars in quality but 5 stars in experience), I seem to be the only gaijin here, but everyone is very nice. It's the middle of winter and the ski slopes are about a 10 minute walk away. Kusatsu... More

Travelled conveniently with a coach from Shinjuku which was included in the package bought from their official website. Reasonably room charged. We had a room at high floor and enjoyed a family spa which booked in advance with additional cost. Wonderful buffet with all you can eat crab leg and other local signature dishes.

Great gesture displaying country flags of visitors during arrival or departures. Rooms are spacious and conditions well maintained despite age. Good onsen facilities and excellent dinner buffet including as many as you can eat Taraba Kani (king crab) legs and craws! Great hotel for family with other facilities including a swimming pool, games arcade, a table tennis table etc. The... More

This hotel is quite a distance from the town but they do provide shuttle service. The shuttle bus is always full but they will provide more buses if required. The hotel room is clean, spacious and comfortable. This place is a nice small town where you can go around looking at the shop houses and have meals or for skiing.... More

I join a package which provide a free bus service from Tokyo direct to the resort. You can choose to board the bus from either Tokyo station or Shinjuku. I chose the latter becasue I could sleep in for an extra hour. It's actually not easy to get to Kusatsu if you are not driving or taking a bus. The... More

Although there was limited english spoken, the staff very helpful, the rooms were comfortable and the amenities were excellent. Free bus service to the snow and nearby railway station is a great benefit. The onsite ski rental shop can store your ski equipment free of charge with lock up lockers for boots etc. The hotel onsens are open 24 hours... More
