Location was at the base of the Akakura Onsen chair and a short walk (or bus) to the base of the gondola. Rooms were quite large in comparison to traditional Ryokan rooms, with the entire hotel being an extremely welcoming environment with exceptional 'chill out after the slopes' areas to relax in. The staff really make this place ideal, catering to your every need.
Helpful/friendly/fun staff, room size is bigger than many others in Japan, great location (close to lifts/food), buffet breakfast
Hotel is showing it's age a little
The bar/ common room with fireplace is a lovely place to hang out at the end of the day. Mieko is a fabulous host and goes out of her way to make your stay fantastic.

Having to leave
It's not luxurious but the location is amazing, the rooms are a good size, staff are fantastic and the onsen is amazing.
Nice and welcoming staff. Lift/transport to Bus Station provided. Excellent location in Akakura Kansu resort with short ways to the local bar and restaurant scene. Close to ski lift entry.
The outside onsen was a great experience. The owners and staff are helpful and friendly. The downstairs common room with fireplace is a great place to socialize and meet other travelers. The buffet breakfast is fantastic. Highly recommend this hotel.
hotel staffs are very nice. They can speak english and help us with everything. The wifi at the hotel is very good. Onsen is very nice esp after skiing all day long. Hotel is about 5-10 min walk from ski slope. Many restaurant around the hotel and most people in town can speak english.
Good position, clean, great breakfast, lovely kind and helpful staff, nice view from room.
Very basic and extremely dated room and facilities, eg peeling paint, no kettle, chipped furniture, very slippery lino bathroom floor, nowhere to even hang towels, limited cleaning during stay, not soundproof. Amazed at such a high rating. Felt like we were on a 1970s school excursion.
Food / breakfast - pancakes are a must Staff - extremely friendly, especially 'mum' - helped us with travel tips, doctors and anything else local Rooms - bigger than the average Japanese room Onsen - been around a long time and still very hot! (and clean) Pick-up from the station
We loved the staff. We loved the onsens. The position was good. The manageress was lovely. The breakfast was a feast! The lounge, bar was friendly and fun. Had a great time. The skiing was great.
Japanese feel, helpful staff, very good breakfast, perfect location
Onsen, staff, yoghurt at breakfast after days of rice, central location to restaurants
Path to skished was witheet covered in snow or slippery.
Very friendly staff and a lovely onsen
Great location, onsen and breakfast..cannot fault
the hostess was very helpful and friendly，goog breakfast and loction for skiing
the facilities were kind of old and not very clean
Staff were really nice and friendly, especially Mieko-san. Breakfast was my favourite.
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
The staff were exceptional A great onsen Close to everything
Could do with some work,it's a it run down
very friendly helpfull management. Good value.
Beds were a bit hard. Wifi reception poor
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.
Having to leave
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.
