We (husband and I) stayed here for one week on our first visit to Japan. We chose a Japanese style room and after the tiny hotel room in Tokyo, it seemed huge. There was plenty of room for all of our luggage and ski gear...More
We stayed at Kawamotoya over Christmas, New Year 2016 and had a great stay. We were lucky enough to have a room on the 2nd floor that had been completely redecorated for the 2016/17 ski season. Room was western and had very good appliances and...More
Location is down the hill a little but wasn't problem with Travelator taking you up to lifts. Breakfast included was standard western/ japanese buffet but pretty good. Rooms Ryoken style with Tatami mats. Whole family in one room but worked well. Staff were excellent and...More
Nice Hotel with great staff. Food was delicious. It is a bit of a walk from the town centre especially in deep snow.
Would be nice if the offered a shuttle to the walkway that takes you to the ski area base as it is...More
This is my second review for Kawamotoya. We had a great experience when we stayed three years ago and thought we'll come back again. This time round, the rooms are still the same - spacious and comfortable, there's still a relatively good onsen and yukatas...More

Hi Julie ... in the case of Kawamotoya you can either book rooms with private bathroom facilities or rooms that rely on the shared bathroom which is basically a typical onsen setup. Google "onsen" and you'll get an idea. The motel give you a personal onsen pack on arrival. Basically in each of the single sex facilities there is a washing area (the men's had two wooden seats under shower heads.) Once washed you then hop into the hot tub. Fantastic after a days skiing. I note Kawamotoya have been refurbishing their onsen this summer. My wife wasn't keen on the idea so we had room on the 5th floor with bath facilities. I used both. Hope this helps.

It's only a short walk from the bus station even with suitcases in tow. There are a couple of ways to get the Kawamotoya so what I'd suggest is to simply pop into the friendly information centre opposite the bus station and ask for directions. The town map is easy to navigate with and they'll direct you along the main street then a turn left down hill. Kawamotoya is next door to the excellent Akebi Tei Okonomiyaki.
