This hotel is awesome, first of all the interior is very tasteful and chic. The front desk people were polite, cooperative, friendly and provided us with a for Japan unimaginable service....they let us check out late....really late. We left in the morning to go skiing and returned late in the afternoon and we were allowed to use our room for a shower. Fantastic unforgettable service! The nearest ski area was closed due to covid, but happo ski area is a 10 minute walk away or you can take the shuttle bus. The happo ski area is aimed at intermediate and upper intermediate skiiers and the atmosphere is not that good. You can however go to the other nearby ski areas which all have free parking and are much better for boarding and or beginners and kids. We will surely stay here again, thank you for everything!
