4.75 / 5 Amazing location and service
We stayed at the Akazora for one week in January 2017, with our three sons (17, 14, 8 yrs old). It was our first trip to Japan, and we absolutely loved the Akazora and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
The girls on the front desk were super friendly and helpful; even collecting us from the Welcome Centre when we arrived late on the first day. On our last night our restaurant booking was cancelled due to a kitchen fire, and the girls organised a last minute booking for us at another restaurant. So kind of them!
The decor is simple, using local materials, but tres chic! If you like space, light and a quiet location, then this is for you.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, and the two bedroom apt was spacious and there was lots of cupboard space.
The best part for me were the enormous windows and views, and watching the masses of snow fall when we awoke each morning. The kitchen area was small, but adequate for fixing a quick supper (although you need a bigger pasta pan for a family of five). I can highly recommend the 'Lucky' Supermarket in Kutchan Town, where we did a big shop. Amazing grocery selection and English speaking staff.
Akazora is within easy walking distance of the great choice of restaurants, great coffee at Rhythm, super-fast ski hire at Rhythm too, delicious bakery in Odin. Sublime skiing and great choice of ski runs. It was a fantastic holiday and we will definitely re-book the Akazora :)
Go Snow provided a friendly and caring ski school. Our youngest son had a wonderful time with them.
