Family has been going on snowboarding trips to Hakuba because of its proximity to family in Tokyo. This year we listened to everyone's recommendation to go the Niseko. So glad we did!
This hotel was highly recommended by a friend on Trip Advisor. We liked the idea of a ski-in/ski-out arrangement as my husband and older son are more adept at snowboarding than my younger son and I. We didn't want to suffer waiting in the cold nor did we want to ruin my husband and older sons's fun. What a relief that we could simply go to the hotel for an hour to re-energize then head out again. Because of this convenience, we were able to enjoy the slopes from opening to closing.
The staff service was exceptional. Special commendation goes out to Masa Yamao. He helped us figure out the laundry machine. He also called the restaurants to make sure they were open and had space for us.
Great breakfast buffet spread. Everyone in the family was pleased to eat what they preferred from vegetable salads, fresh fruit and yogurt to potato croquettes and bacon.
Despite all 4 of us being cramped in a tiny room and having to sleep on the floor (tatami) with Japanese futons, we loved the view from our room and the perk of having our own private onsen. If you are willing to pay double, then I suggest getting two Western style rooms if this arrangement does not work for you. It did get us some getting used to. This was to no fault of the hotel.
We all enjoyed our trip and we look forward to coming back next time!
