Staff are very friendly, we felt like VIP guests, they bent over backwards to accommodate us. Food was amazing, very authentic Japanese cuisine. Rooms were spacious and very clean, we would definitely come back here and recommend this hotel to anyone! 5 stars!

This is apparently only the second best one! We bought a little thing made of a sort of pancake batter with red ...
We arranged to go snow shoeing today. Our guest house host is a mountain guide so he is taking us out for an adventure which is great. We can only do a half day today due to the weather coming in snowy in the afternoon but that is fine, still gives us a taste of it. We got kitted out with boots and snow shoes and poles and bundled into the van to head up the road. It is about 2* so not too chilly. We had to get the right balance of warm but not ...
