“Here's Johnny!!!”
Reviewed 26 December 2011

A couple of things certain with Japanese hotels - old, poorly maintained, overpriced, impregnated with smoke. This hotel is no different. It fails to impress in all aspects except for one, it's location to the slopes and the winter sports related activities. Winter wonderland awaits outside, it is perfect for kids with ski school and day care. Ski system is pretty large and not overly crowded.

Location is reasonable. Travel 80 minutes with Joetsu Shinkansen from Tokyo station to Yuzawa a 30 minute bus ride and you are there. Back to the hotel and it's loooong carpet dressed corridors, filthy and worn down. Feels a little like I would imagine a stay at the Stanley hotel in the Shining. Just waiting for Jack axing through the door screaming - Here's Johnny! - Creepy.

Knowing this about the hotel beforehand you will at least not be disappointed, because travel agent or Internet page told you differently. So get your energy consumed in the slopes, only use hotel for a dip in the hot spring, a quick bite in the horribly located dungeon like cantina and then pass out.
