    Great experience: great service, staff's exceptionnel kindness, essential, big and traditional rooms, incredibly cozy atmosphere: a dive into Japanese traditions and culture. A quiet waking up surrounded by beautiful mountains, followed by a rich Japanese / Western breakfast. Relax in the (indoor and outdoor) onsen, a cup of green tea in the room. This hotel guarantees the warmness and relax everybody looks for during a vacation. The owner is fanstastic: she finds the perfect solution to any problem or doubt and is always willing for help. We've been kindly picked up by car from Myoko kogen's station, and on the way back they proposed us a nice tour of the Myoko lake before taking our train. Great location, great hospitality and great cleanness. We could not be more satisfied and we wish to come back soon.

    Great location in central Akukura. The owner Meiko was super helpful, friendly and loved a good laugh. Staff were super polite and did everything to make our stay pleasurable. Hotel rooms were Japanese style, good size room, clean and comfy...The snow helped too...

    Nothing, was a great stay

    We absolutely loved this place. The accommodation feels like a very large place so you are not living in the pockets of other guests. The buffet breakfast is nothing short of amazing, the communal sitting room is nice and mellow and has a big open fire. The staff are super friendly and helpful (standard for japan) and the owner will go out of her way to help you. The accommodation has its own indoor and outdoor onsens which are very well kept. The japanese style rooms are very comfy and traditional. There is complimentary japanese tea in the rooms which is replenished twice daily and is a nice touch. The rooms are cleaned every day. The kogakuro is located a very short walk from the Akakura Onsen lifts. Akakura Kanko can be reached via these lifts or the Kanko lifts can be walked to directly although they are slightly farther. Other Myoko resorts can be reached via free shuttle bus which is short walk from the accommodation. We will definatly be returning in the not too distant future.

    Wonderful staff, very helpful and friendly. Good location for restaurants and ski lifts. Good ski storage areas and drying room. Lovely common area for sitting in comfort for wifi. Good breakfast and Onsen.

    Rooms a tiny bit dalapidated but just cosmetic, perfectly comfortable. Wifi in room would be nice.

    We loved everything. The staff was super friendly and accommodating - we felt like old friends when we left just 4 days later. It has a cool old school ski lodge vibe with large rooms, ski storage, a heated locker room to dry your gear and boots and even free to borrow galoshes for tromoing downtown. Perfect location in the middle of everything. Delicious breakfast.

    Nothing!

    Staff, location, food, Onsen and atmosphere were all great.

    Japanese style bed and pillow were too firm and uncomfortable. Did not have good nights sleep.

    Great stay at Kogakuro. Hostess Meiko went above and beyond to ensure that all needs were met. Specifically, pointing out any necessary locations around town (rental, restaurant, karaoke!) but even more so when helping with travel. For example, when trains were cut due to severe snow she insisted in helping figure out the best travel arrangements for those staying at the hotel, going above and beyond in helping. Great pick up and drop off from hotel. Fun outdoor Onsen. Cozy common room for relaxing, and walkable to bars+restaurants right across streets 10/10 would stay again

    Ticked every box for me. Staff are excellent and Meiko is the best host you'll find. The hotel takes you inside Japan.

    The staff were so friendly and helpful. They work so well at making Kogakuro a very nice place to stay.

    The internet strength wasn't the greatest and only available in two locations.

    Loved the hotel. Mieko, one of the owners ran the desk, served us breakfast & was unbelievable. What a gracious wonderful woman. She helped make our entire stay easy, from making dinner reservations to helping us with transportation, including picking us up at the train station. Breakfast was great with plenty to eat. Meeting people at the wifi hotspot in the lobby & enjoying the great onsen, could not of had a better time. Our whole group of six loved it.Thank you so much Mieko. Hope to see you again some time!

    The staff here is superb. They are incredibly friendly, extremely helpful and made the stay very pleasant. The location is also quite convenient.

    The building is quite old and not in great shape. The onsen is quite nice but everything else could use a lot of work.

    Amazing staff, Meiko the lady who runs the place speaks life saving English. She helps with everything. How to onsen, getting shuttles to resorts, train status, road conditions and best places to eat. The onsen is a blessing, it's a must after a hard day skiing. The breakfast is a great combo of euro/Japanese food. The rooms are authentic, comfortable and the teas in the room are delish. Staying here made my stay. They picked me up at the train station. And you can walk to two ski areas, and bus/taki/shuttle to a bunch of others.

    The front entrance is very modest, but let that fool you. This is the best place to stay and ski in Myoko / Akakura.

    Meiko was a wonderful host who went above and beyond to ensure the comfort of her guests and to help in anyway she could with advice, travel arrangements and trains/flights especially in times of crises like the Tokyo Snow Storm! Also fantastic food! Overall a very affordable place to stay for a Japanese ski holiday.
