It is near the train station and restaurants. Very clean atmosphere. Friendly and helpful services. Food was delicious. Because there was not enough snow at this resort, they were kind enough to make arrangements with another resort.

Stayed at the NASPA New Otani Hotel and got the ski lift package. Staying right in front of the resort was great since we needed to rent equipment and some ski-wear (Jacket and pants). The ski clothes and equipment rental office is about 50 feet away from the hotel on the slopes. We had a 6 year old who was... More

A great ski resort to start with as it's not as crowded as Gala. We actually preferred this place as rental of ski equipment was easier and faster. The children sledding hill is excellent as there is a travellator to bring children up the slope. This will save some energy of climbing up the slope repeatedly. My 2 kids had... More

Fun fun fun. There's no snowboarding here but it is great for the little ones who enjoyed sledding and playing in the snow. There is a kids area for them to enjoy. The food at the outside restaurants aren't so great so make sure you bring snacks or have a meal ticket to eat at Naspa New Otani.

Rented the ski equipment for my children and wife! We love the spacious area at the rental area. But don't forget to get the ski pass from before heading to the rental area. Love the gentle slopes at the beginner route. I will be back

Basic, but clean efficient and friendly. Cost effective and ideally situated to the piste; like the hotel though, some cosmetic work would not go amiss.

By Alpine standards, this is a very small, low-level resort that offers nothing to challenge the good skier. But, for a beginner, a day and children, it's excellent. For a non-Japanese speaker (I was with a Japanese friend) it would be a bit daunting to hire kit, etc. However, the staff were very friendly and I'm sure that English, at... More

I liked the access to the slopes and the variety of the slopes including all ski levels. The number of runs is low by US standards, but to ski 1-3 days, you will have fun.

Very family friendly. Very expensive food and hotel but very clean outstanding service very large rooms in the Tower worth the money. Skiing is similar to New York and Pennsylvania in the States. Snow is very very wet and heavy. Very convenient from Tokyo 75 minutes by bullet train. Free shuttle pick up at the station about two miles away... More

Equipment and clothing rentals are available with discounts for residents at the New Omani hotel. Group ski lessons are in Japanese but individual English language lessons are available through a company called Canyons. We used them and they were very good. It's a family-friendly resort and should be noted that no snowboarding is allowed. Food on the slopes is available... More
