They were so nice! We checked in late and some of us wanted to go to the bar in akakura to meet with other friends. I tried calling a taxi but there was a language barrier. In the end the staff helped us with the phone call. The were on the phone to the for10 minutes and Im not sure what was said but in the end the staff drove us there and picked us up around 11:30 pm from the bar,! Legends !
White Tree Log House Madarao Tangram has garden views, free WiFi and free private parking, located in Shinano, 18 miles from Zenkoji Temple. Saki-san and Hayden were incredibly kind and fun to chat with. They were knowledgable about the area, adored our dog, and treated us as if we were visiting relatives. The breakfast Saki cooked was delicious and light; perfect for mornings in the mountains. I cannot wait to visit again.
Lots to do around this area if you love the outdoors OR just want a quite weekend away from the crowds, half hour to Nagano, for Winter close to some of Japan's best ski resorts - Myoko, Hakuba, Madarao, Nozawa. For summer Nijiri lake is an adventure paradise for things to do in and out of the water. Super easy to come by car or shinkasen from Tokyo.
Rich nature, many unseen places hardly found by googling (fortunately, I hv got good info n facilitation from hotel's staff.), and serene place to keep yourself out of busy routine life for a while. However, limited transportation. Worth to rent a car to enjoy those though.
Before booking the hotel, we read many great reviews and now we can definitely join the fan club of Nojiri Lake Resort. Everything was amazing! Ted and Stephen are wonderful hosts, they definitely made our stay much more authentic and memorable.
It's a whole large cabin for not much more money than a tiny hotel room. After 6 days on the road, it was nice to cook again for breakfast and dinners. Nice views surrounded by a forest.
Very convenient for families with kids. Play areas and all ski slopes end in front of the hotel.
