This lakeside resort is about a 3-hour drive from Tokyo and judging by the outside and the lobby, this hotel is old, very very old. Despite that, the room we stayed in was clean and the buffet offerings for breakfast and dinner were of amazing variety. But what we were most impressed about was the services they offer for families... More

We took a shuttle bus from Tokyo offered by the hotel. The shuttle bus arrived the hotel an hour late. Also there was not enough snow so we could not ski in the ski resort at the hotel. There was only one English speaking staff. I had to wait for a long time to be served and told me how... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights to ski and celebrate my husband birthday. Unfortunately, the shirakaba ski resort haven't opened yet during the time we visited (22-24 Dec) due to the unexpectedly hot winter time in 40 years. Very little snow in the resort. As a result, we had to take the hotel shuttle (10 mins ride) to... More

We chose the Nagomi deluxe room as it's spacious, new and very clean with good facilities ... however, as the hotel complex is huge ... it's a very, very long walk to the baths - nearly 10-12 minutes. The baths are quite hot ... and the new rotenburo (outside bath) is much better. The inside baths are big but, as... More

We booked this hotel as there is an amusement park just in front of the hotel. The room, with twin bed and tatami, was not great, and the bed quality was really poor.

The hotel's peak season is in the winter time. Lots of ski resorts near by. We were there in late summer and perhaps that could explain why it seemed like half the hotel it could have been. We were traveling with 3 young children. And the place accommodated children with a playroom and a couple arcades which was nice. But... More

“Choose the Nagomi deluxe room ... it's spacious, new and clean. The floors are warm. It is a blend of good western beds and Japanese tatami mats ... but, it's far from the lobby and baths. If you're into teddy bears - the 2 Teddy bear rooms might be a big hit with the kids.”
