We have stayed at Gakuto three times and we will continue to return! As a family with two young children, travel and accomodations are always a trial and the staff at Gakuto make everything easier! The villas are very spacious and comfortable, floors are heated and rooms are warm. The kitchenette with cooking implements, utensils, microwave, stove, mini-fridge, rice cooker, toaster and tea pot makes food prep easy. If you are a physically active family, the ski lifts are a short walk away to some terrific hiking. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable with great ideas for activities and they even have bicycles (with kid seats) available! The surrounding area is quaint and quiet, perfect for a morning or evening walk. We have shared the two bedroom villa with another family of four, and, while a little chaotic (the children were all the same ages), the villa was a great fit for us all! Flawless English-speaking or Japanese-speaking staff, superlative and comprehensive brochure with suggested activities, phone numbers, explanations, and an amazing location. We are repeat visitors (three times!) and will stay here again...and again...and again.
As an aside, during our most recent stay we received a "breakfast box" that was absolutely amazing! They included everything our family could want and more! Bread, cereal, milk, juice, eggs, butter, coffee, and fruit. It was a wonderful "welcome home...for the weekend!". Thanks a million, Gakuto!
