We stayed at the Annex, not the main hotel. It's not as nice but if you don't mind older-looking amenities it's excellent value for money! The staff are super helpful and speak very fluent English (during the snow season, anyway) so you'll be well looked after! We highly recommend getting the buffet breakfast as well - less hassle than finding...

First part of our trip was at Oyado Furuya but they were booked out for the remaining nights we wanted to stay, so we moved over to Akakura Hotel. It was immediately obvious that all their money has been spent on the front reception area. Ski storage was not particularly clean - lots of rust, heaters were not routinely running...

Just stayed at the Akakura Hotel Annex for the third time. There are two sections of this Hotel. The reviews regarding noisy pipes and combo rooms (western beds plus small tatami section) are reviews of the Annex. Which is the more basic part of the Hotel. The main building is really quite extravagant for an on snow Hotel in Japan...

Stayed there for 8 nights and we were very vell taken care of. Especially Emma in the reception gave us excellent service and managed to solve any problem we had during our stay. The big onsen was really nice, wouldn't recommend the smaller ones.

This was our 7th Japanese ski trip, and our 6th resort. We have stayed in a variety of Japanese ski accommodation over the years - all local (none were expat owned or run). The Akakura Hotel Annex was adequate, but did not compare well to similar style / price accommodation we have experienced previously. Our combination room was fine and...

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Akakura. We were warmly greeted at the station & driven to the hotel by a friendly staff member & we found all employees to be wonderfully hospitable Japanese staff. Although they have very little English this was not an issue as they have two very helpful young Australians working at reception & I...

Our group of seven stayed at the Akakura Hotel (Annex) in Jan 2016 for a week. Train to Myoko station then taxi - about 2200 yen. Stepping into the lobby reminded us of a time trip back to the 70s. However, the rooms are fine, the location is good and the staff were really nice (esp Emma and Ben). As...

The hotel is little changed over the last forty odd years but it delivers a traditional hospitable Japanese style welcome to guests and if you choose to stay here please respect that. Shoes left at the door, futon bedding ( if you request) indoor clothes provided to wear and amazing Olsen experience all made our visit something to remember -...

We spent 6 nights in the Annex on a family trip during early January 2015 and it was our second stay. As Kez69 says, the heating pipework is noisy and the hotel acknowledge this is an issue in the compendium. We regarded it as our early morning wake-up call. Other than the noisy pipework, the staff are very friendly and...

Some aspects were comically bad, like being woken at 5am by the sound of banging pipes as the antiquated heating started up (and when I say banging pipes, think of a burly bloke with a sledgehammer bashing the hell out of the radiator by your head). The whole hotel was also inundated with large groups of school kids who seemed...
