It was the best place to travel on the Alpine Route. I was able to be with nature in tranquility and comfort. I will definitely choose this place next time.
The food n room is very basic. But the hotel do not have any adapter. But they go out of the way to borrow from another hotel. For tha t kind of service which I don’t expect.
Booked a western/mountain view room with 2 beds and was upgraded to a larger corner room with 3 beds. View from window was fantastic - saw the sea of clouds and sunset. Room was comfortable and clean. Dinner was good. Breakfast was so-so. Good reception se
Very good and exquisite dinner!! Room was large. You can borrow trekking boots and pole which is very convenient. My 3 yrs old liked the snow slide. Nice place to stay.
Good service, very good food, and a very comfy stay. Weather was rainy when we reached, and did not clear until the next day, so there was very limited things we can do. Walking trails are still snow covered. The hotel organized a short walk for guests, ev
very good location - peaceful and charming scenary. front desk staff conversational english is better than most in toyama/nagano area. hotel provides snow boots and snow sleigh free of charge. we had lots of fun sliding down the snowy slope.
We just returned from a 12 day trip to Japan and this is the BEST place we stayed. It was so romantic to be surrounded by snow, in a cosy and traditional-style room. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The food delicious. What can I say but 'wonde

Room very very large, exceptional cleanliness, staff friendly and efficient, the only flaw: not all of they speak English fluently
Nice hotel in the alpine route. We went there in Apr so there were plenty of snow in the area. Walking around hotel is major plus for us however it is not recommend for elder. Public bath with outside view is nice and comfortable.
The hotel is conveniently located, and a timely stop after a long day along teh Alpine route. It is not conjested like the Tateyama hotel at Murodo, but has the right balance of quiet and convenience. There were thick snow on the day we came, the view of t
Wonderful view and spot here. It’s worth for us to stay 1 night! The room is enormous! Room for 2 but can fit for 4 guests. At night, hotel also has a session talk to introduce Tateyama-Machi and see the stars. Although we don’t understand japenses but we
Food is very good
