My family had a wonderful time at Kawahiro. Rooms were very comfortable. Food was awesome, authentic Japanese! The staff were very warm and accommodating to us. Best location, very near Nagasaka gondola.

Simple but comfortable Japanese-style lodging just a few steps from the gondola. There was no common area, so as we were travelling with a group we all tended to squeeze into one room to chat at the end of the day, which was very cosy! Shared toilets and big communal baths (lovely!) which were only available at certain hours (annoying).... More

Bathrooms has its own hot spring onsen and traditional shower facilities - amazing after a day on the slopes. Breakfast is japanese but a pleasant change and experience. They have a public restaurant which is open for lunch and by reservation for... More

Kawahiro could not be closer to the Nagasaka Gondola (a few metres?).Definitely ski in and ski out and it made it very easy for our family to come in from the slopes whenever and head out skiing multiple times throughout the day if needed. It is further from the main street for restaurant dinners though and the walk back up... More

The rooms are basic and if you're not used to sleeping on futon/tatami, the bed is HARD! And this hotel will not suit those who insist on private facilities because the toilets are shared (like a hostel) as is the onsen (obviously). The onsens are lovely and clean (and not super-hot like other onsens, so you can actually get in... More

we took the chuo-taxi (shared mini-van) from narita airport to the hotel. it took almost 6 hours with all stops and costed 12400/pers. but it was door to door service and very convenient with all our luggage. Kawahiro was at first a cultural shock, as we have never stayed in this type of accomodation before. But at the end, we... More

This is our second trip here and last time we were in the middle of town which was a pain getting easily to the lift..

We came back for a second stay this year. The family that run it are delightful, and the rooms generous. The food is nothing short of spectacular, although my kids are a little fussy (they still got plenty of nourishment). We worked out how to make our beds by trial and error. Location couldn't be better: a 6 metre walk... More
