We travelled to Hakuba to Ski in Japan. Stayed at the Hakuba Springs Hotel which was a wonderful place to stay with excellent service, great food, great central location and scenic views.
We decided to split our stay into the normal English style room for most of our stay and then decided for a few nights to do the traditional Japanese type room. No difference in the size of the room, just the type of sleeping arrangements - so if you have difficulty getting up and down I do not recommend a traditional Japanese room - otherwise it was a very enjoyable experience.
The staff were extremely friendly and although not all spoke English, this did not hamper us in any way and they were quick to find someone who could assist if there were any difficulties. I'd thoroughly recommend staying here if you intend going to Japan to ski.
We visited the snow monkeys (a must see) and were driven to where the tour left and picked up which was greatly appreciated.
Great location for access to the mountains and great variety for all levels of skiers. We will return in the future as we had such a wonderful time.
