This is the second time we have stayed at the Akakura Kanko, both times it has been an absolute pleasure. The staff are brilliant, the hotel imaculate, unpretentious and a true joy to stay in. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. Be warned though, it is expensive. However for the ski in/ski out convenience and the pleasure...

We got there late, arrived at around 8pm, but the restaurant waited us for dinner. The Wagyu Shabu Shabu was delicious, and the room was cozy and nice. They gave us Clarins set for the amenities. The next morning we woke up with this breath taking view from the room, we stayed at the Open-air Onsen room type B, it...

I loved my stay here and will definitely try and make my way back! Stayed 3 nights and was impressed by the refurbished 5 star level of rooms. The hotel has some history and has retained a sense of that in its wooden floors and small lift in the reception area but all its facilities have been upgraded without compromising...

This was recommended to me as the only ski in - ski out place in myoko with a bit of luxury. I believe that is right. There are other hotels at the very bottom of the mountain near the resort center which is several steps across the street so that may be an option for saving some money. First I...

I honestly can't believe this is not ranked as the top hotel in the Myoko region. I believe it is. I stayed at the new wing with super modern and cozy rooms (been here a few times, all around late Feb/early Mar, in 2009/2010/2011), and the built in private onsen on the balcony is just stunning -- perfect to sooth...

The good points: 1.Fantastic view from my room. 2.Good food (but very pricey). 3.Great Onsen, well maintained and impeccably clean. Fantastic views too. Areas for improvement: 1.Few of the key staff that should speak reasonable English (front desk), actually do. Tough, therefore,to make simple arrangements in a straight forward way. 2.The gym is very small and lacks the basic facilities...

Nothing particularly wrong with this ski-out, ski-in hotel, but overall felt like you we're in a time machine and visiting a "luxury" hotel in Japan 20 years ago, but being asked to pay prices where you should expect real luxury and service. This is a shame given it's location. Food was good, but needs more flexibility and informal dining choices....

It's taken me nearly 2 years to write this as I've only just joined TA but I thought it was worthy of a review. We had the most memorable and beautiful experience at this hotel. We went there to ski in January 2010 and booked it via the internet. Communication was a bit difficult as they don't seem to confirm...

We came from Hong Kong to spend the Chinese New Year week skiing and are having an awesome time. The staff have been terrific and the onsen is outstanding with very modern facilities and a great view over the pistes. The food has been excellent. Snow conditions have been outstanding and the lift tickets are great value by international standards.
