“A great choice to stay at Oyado Furuya”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

Having now travelled to Japan skiing four times already (with the fifth already booked), we’ve come to appreciate that relatively few foreign guests seem to provide reviews of their stay at Japanese hotels; thus it is often hard to gauge a hotel’s quality. In Oyado Furuya’s case, there was a good number of Japanese, Australian and American guests staying as guests when we were there and had they bothered to provide a review, I’m sure they’d also be recommending this hotel. We’d certainly be happy to stay at Oyado Furuya again.

The room we chose was Japanese in style, with tatami mats and separate bathroom. It was ample in size for the three of us (myself, my wife & teenage son). The room was warm, clean & comfortable. All floor levels are serviced by a lift, including the ski locker / drying room located on the lower ground floor.

Efficient management is evident, with complimentary latte available in the lounge, terrific food in the dining room for breakfast and dinner, and happy / helpful staff. Whilst many of the Japanese staff are decent at speaking English, for the past few snow seasons, the owners have specifically employed a native English speaking member of staff (Australian) who is well skilled in speaking Japanese and who can readily assist with any translation issues; though this was never a problem for us.

The hotel’s onsen (hot bath) are also terrific. The separate male & female onsen are located on the upper floor, with different styles and views. Each have in-door and outdoor onsen and are a real indulgence to relax in after a hard day’s skiing.

The multi-course Keiseki style Japanese dinner is a treat and well worth the adventure to try. Other local dining options include Udon-no-Fu (beneath Pomodoro Italian opposite), which serves terrific (& very inexpensive) apple tempura as a “special” desert (not on the printed menu). Otherwise, try Kei, which serves a range of sensational meals in nice surroundings.

Myoko Kogen has four separate ski areas that are in close proximity and serviced by a free shuttle bus. Akakura Onsen has the best choice of accommodation and restaurants, with Oyado Furuya proving to be well located on the main street and only a short walk from the ski lift and free bus to neighbouring ski fields. We especially enjoyed skiing at Suginohara as it has excellent lifts (a 3 kilometre long 6 person gondola + 2 x 1.7 kilometre covered quad chairs), long runs, extensive grooming and relatively few people.

In all, a very good place to stay, with the benefit great food and terrific options for skiing / boarding.
