We stayed at the Silver Horn late in March 2014. Nori-san speaks good English, is super polite and even more helpful (he gave us good advice on where to eat different foods, organised taxis for us, helped look up the best way to get to our next destination and even wrote them all out in Japanese).
The place itself is a Japanese style lodge with tatami and futons with the rooms big enough to easily accommodate three adults. It has a warm cozy atmosphere with an onsite onsen. Situated literally right across the road from the Akakura Kanko lifts means you dont have to trek home with gear. I really recommend the Japanese breakfast - its just what you need for a day of finding Myokos hidden pow stashes.
Its a short walk into the main dining area - but its a nice walk back to the lodge, especially after a bellyful of great food and sake.
Will definitely come back to the Silver Horn, Arigato Nori-san, mata ne!
