We had two clean and comfortable interconnecting rooms for my family of four (two teenagers) which was perfect. Osamu and his family were welcoming and generous, and assisted us in getting a refund for a one day tour we had booked that we had to change. They also recommended a great ski hire place, Spicey Rentals, as well as the best places to ski for the conditions. The free shuttle bus was minutes away and the best restaurants in Echoland only a 10 minute walk. We also had a beautiful five course meal cooked by Osamu's wife. The lounge area was a great place to relax and there were a few arguments over who was next to use the amazing massage chair!!! If we ski in Japan again we would love to stay here. Highly recommended.
