We loved our stay at the Hosonokan. Hiro (the owner) and his staff were incredibly helpful and eager to point us in the right direction. We strongly recommend staying here- the meals are fantastic, the rooms are fine, and (again) the staff is terrific. The onsen is small, but it's perfectly adequate. The location is perfect- very close to the Happo bus terminal and walking distance to Happo-One Ski Field. You'll love it!
