The Natulux hotel is conveniently located opposite the Furano JR station. The carpark is located just next to the hotel entrance. The room is small but modern and well laid out. The pillows are comfortable for the non-Japanese traveller that is more used to a softer "western" style pillow. The location is superb. Literally 2 minutes to our BBQ dinner at Yamadori. Because we were here in summer, there was also an awesome festival held at the street just next to the hotel. The performances were memorable and of a very high standard.

They try to keep their life secret for you. So they will do if they didn't hear your question or they try to be very secret about it and talk around it.
And after a nice skype session with my parents it is already bed time. The beds are so soft!
What a magic day. In the morning we made fresh tracks through powder knee deep, which was magic. Later we did some off piste skiing through waist deep powder which was fun but tricky. Fell once, and couldn't get out of the snow to put the skis on! In the afternoon we did shorter runs through soft powder until the pain made us stop for the day Hot bath with beer to finish off the ...
... Simon and Amanda, and snowboarding for Sonia, and with their help we have all improved our skills considerably.
Meal times have been a social event in themselves with lively conversation being the order of the day. In the evenings we enjoyed the many different shows in the theatre, joining in to sing the crazy signs, and then meeting all our new friends later for drinks ...
