Daimaru was fantastic! Definitely the highlight of my trip to Japan and would recommend to anyone travelling to the snow. Best parts about the hotel: - Friendly staff who are always ready to help - buffet breakfast which is a mix of Western and Eastern cuisine. Perfect to keep you going all day on the mountain - Large comfortable rooms,...

Very happy with the service at daimaru all the staff were very helpful and friendly. The western style room that we stayed in had a traditional tea room and the beds were extremely comfortable. The onsen was also excellent and a great way to wind down after a day of snowboarding. The included breakfast was very satisfying also

The hotel was friendly and warm, however its very run down.The building must leak alot going by all the stains on the walls and mold is feature one could do without. As a cheapy hotel its okay but what we were very disappointed in was the breakfast. It takes just as much effort do western food well as it does...

This is a rather old establishment with a mixture of both western and Japanese style rooms. Location is decent with a short walk to the main street and ski runs. They have two English speaking staff on site to take care of all the communications and administrative issues and transfers to and from the myoko kogen train station was much...

As other reviewers have mentioned Daimaru is definitely in need of a makeover, however it's location in Akakura Onsen is great. It's at the top of the village within easy reach of all the nightlife (not that we sampled it) and restaurants. We had a Japanese/Western room which consisted of twin beds and a tatami mat area which was huge,...

At first appearance the Daimaru is not the prettiest flower in the bunch however once inside while a little dated the rooms are clean and very very comfortable. We stayed in a family room (Japanese and Western style bedding) which was fantastic for our family of 4 (kids 6 and 8). While not all members of staff speak much in...

At first look the Hotel Daimaru is a bit dated, and needing some love and attention, once you look past that, you realise, especially if you are there for a skiing holiday at least, that things are pretty good. Firstly the location: The hotel is pretty much right on the edge of Akakura town, so is a couple of minutes...

We stayed on a package with meals included and were so happy we did, although we may have left much heavier than when we arrived! The room was large by Japanese standards and blended western and japanese amenities well. Tom and Harry (foreign liaisons) couldn't have been more helpful or made us feel more welcome, they are an asset to...

Not flash and a little bit ragged around the edges but a very pleasant, relaxed and conveniently placed hotel.Great western and Japanese rooms, english speaker on staff to help. Excellent onsen for after ski recovery. Very close to shuttle to other resorts and very close to Myoko Ski Park chairlift and night skiing. Adequate western breakfast. Short and enjoyable walk...

Spent 5 nights at Daimaru hotel, staying in a Western/Japanese combination room. The room was spacious and comfortable with an option to sleep on 'standard' beds or on traditional futon beds. There is a fridge in room for cold drinks and a water boiler for tea, coffee (or huge pot noodles!). There's free wifi in the hotel lobby so me...
