We have just spent 3 nights at this fantastic friendly guesthouse.
We arrived early (1030 am) after getting the bus from Sapporo - we were welcomed with a smile and an apology that our room wasn’t ready. We weren’t really expecting it to be until later in the day - however just 20 minutes later we were shown to our “Deer” room. A lovely comfy clean twin room. While waiting for our room to be prepared we filled in a form specifying what ski equipment we needed. In less than 30 mins there was a knock on the door - our ski’s and boots had arrived!! We bought a lift pass from the guesthouse too and were on the slopes (less than five minutes walk away) before 1200!
We ate at the guesthouse on the first and last evening - food was fantastic, fresh local produce served with a smile.
The guesthouse serves beer (draft and bottles) and has a decent wine list too. Each evening after dinner we were taken to a local onsen - the two we went to were amazing.
The lounge/dining area is a lovely spot to chill out and chat to fellow guests.
Massa and his team looked after us so well, nothing was a chore for them and it was fun spending time with his friends from Bangkok.
