The owner guy (even though not super great at english, used a translator app sometimes) was lovely and came out to help as we got closer and carried one of our bags and helped us brush off snow before coming in. Also carried our bags to the room. The room was beautiful old style futon on tatami and quite large. The onsen was so good after a day of skiing. The drying room for skis and clothes etc was nice and hot. The futons were nice and comfy though we do stack them up a lot haha. It was right on one of the lifts for Akakura onsen resort, gives a new meaning to ski in ski out! If you want first lifts at Akakura onsen it would be great for you! Onsen and Kanko are connected so easy to get across to them too (but a few slow spots especially with powder just an fyi). Lunch dinner and breakfast are offered for pretty cheap but we didnt try any. There’s a work and wax bench in the ski storage room with an iron but byo wax. The owner kindly drove our bags and myself to the bus stop on his quad bike as it was heavily snowing when we left so we could make our bus. If you like dogs they have a mini poodle who is smart enough to open and close the automatic doors to go for a pee and come back haha. There is a coin laundry and soap and softener was complimentary. you can buy some drinks, beer and noodles at reception and theres a tv and heater in the restaurant kitchen area if you want to chill with a few people at night. The owner was super considerate etc when he came to change the gas in the heater he didnt want to enter the room as it was 'our space' at the time. I think its an old traditional thing so just handed us the stuff in the doorway.
It was a mish and a half to get there from japan post/ information building as it was heavily snowing took us about 30mins. It is across a car park/ ski run. Had to drag the bags over like 30cm of fresh snow. The tv we noticed the set top box wasn’t plugged in and as there are only two sockets there you needed to choose between having the heater on or using the tv. One day the sound on the tv died, tried everything to make it come back. 2 days later it came back again don’t know why. I had a cold at the time and the cold weather and the gas smell (from the old gas heater) wasn’t great for my lungs. 3 days into our trip the gas heater ran out of gas and we woke up in the morning freezing. The light started making a buzzing noise on the 3rd day on every setting except low. The onsen looked a bit old the walls needed repainting and they only had a shampoo rinse thingo no conditioner and no combs or basic toiletries. You would think for a hotel/ guest house/ ryokan whatever you want to call it with an onsen as it’s only means of showering you would get a yukata to wear to and from onsen but no. You have to get the towels from reception. No kettle in the room, no free tea or coffee even in the lounge. No cups in the rooms but there is water downstairs in the restaurant. No fridge in the room but in winter the balcony room is cold enough to be a fridge. There’s sinks and mirrors in the hallway on each floor but not in the rooms. No tissues in the rooms or in the restaurant. There’s toilets on each floor but our floor had both a normal and squat toilet and smelt a bit. The hallways and toilet rooms are not heated so are cold in winter. There were hairs on some of the blankets in the cupboard. The wifi was so slow on our floor was not usable, was only good in the lobby/restaurant. There is no room service so the bin filled up a lot. There is no elevator only stairs.
Very helpful owners, warm, comfortable with an excellent drying room. I was also very impressed with the breakfast & other meals. The location on snow was very convenient.
The Onsen was quite small
The view was incredible, and it's virtually right on the ski field. The owners we incredibly helpful and accommodating
Fantastic location, very family friendly. Beds were comfortable. Good size rooms.
Location to town is good (less than 10 min walk). It was alittle tricky getting bags across snow through as the place is literally on a ski slope. ski in ski out which was perfect very handy! Pretty good value for money- basic amenities and place but good price Awesome view onto the slope from our room
Heater kept turning off at night.. was abit cold! Alittle loud No breakfast however they have a toaster and kettle so can buy groceries from the supermarket and make your own brekky before hitting the slopes
