My husband and three teenage boys went to Hakuba and arrived at 0200hrs on the 22nd December 2012 - after being picked up at Narita Airport, Tokyo and driven the nearly 6 hour drive. The Mini van that picked us up was warm and very comfortable. The driver was lovely, courteous and accommodating when needing toilet stops. Tina at Snowbeds had organised this service and we will use it again in December this year when we go back. We had the kitchenette/2 bedroom suite on the first floor and cannot complain about anything. The staff, especially Ali were wonderful and we missed them very much when we went onto Toyko for another 6 days. We are in the process or organising flights and accommodation at the moment for another 15 days at the Echo Hotel in December 2013/January 2014., we loved the village atmosphere of Hakuba and the genuine kindness of everyone we met on our trip. Echo Hotel will become our home base for many years of skiing, we loved it. Roll on Christmas!!
