If you're looking for a real Japanese experience staying at a traditional type pension, the Pension Funny Inn will not disappoint you. Wife Mayumi speaks excellent English and her French chef trained husband is a wonderful chef cooking amazing breakfasts (part of the cost) that is a fusion of Japanese and French. Each day is different. Best French toast we've ever had and wonderful eggs benedict. Make sure you book a dinner in and go for the full 5 courses .. worth it when you see what you get for the costs. Fine dining at a fraction of the cost you'd pay back home.
It's a boutique pension with only 6 rooms. Each room is different - go for the ones with your own private onsen (Japanese bath fab after a hard day on the powder).
There's also an indoor and outdoor onsen you can use... great to be surrounded by views of the mountain when you're soaking the aches away.
Their service is wonderful, going the extra mile like picking you up when you arrive at the train station or helping you out with your hire gear. They sell lift passes to Hakuba 47 and Happo-one cheaper than you can buy directly. Here's a tip... buy your tickets daily as it's not worth buying an all mountain pass for a longer period of time. This way you get to choose which of the nearby 8 mountains you want to ski and it's cheaper.
Funny Inn is also centrally located with an easy walk to the shuttle bus stops to every mountain.
Totally recommend this pension for the wonderful service and a real Japanese experience.
