Guest reviews for Okushiga Kogen Hotel

Everyone (1)
5 out of 5
We overall enjoyed our time at this hotel. Some notes: * generally good command of English among staff - generally better English at Okushiga Kogen area than lower down the mountains. * rooms were large enough for the price * large fireplace and bar upstairs for apres * convenient ski lockers/place to suit up and access lifts * two good, but expensive, restaurants in house. Restaurants had limited availability per time slot. Booking was essential. * economical meal options v. limited. Sports bar at central station is main option. Supposedly 7 days a week, but closed twice during our 8 day stay. Can catch a bus elsewhere but we didn't. * certain sameness of food up and down the mountains. Try Cafe Rocky at Ichinose Family. * ski in, short walk to lift on way out * Okushiga Kogen is at one end of ski area. No school groups. To get to the far end took us about 2 hours of casual skiing. * fair bit of traversal required to get between resorts * weather was great - even counting a couple of low visibility days. Tons of snow. Low visibility was not such a problem as felt we could trust the snow. * lifts were a little conservative about closure for wind. * bus from "central station" (5 min walk) to/from monkey park. * first bus to Nagano station arrives just after 2 trains to Tokyo leave. * wifi was comparatively good (not obviously under provisioned) * Hotel has lots of extras you can try (sauna/igloo, massage, onsen, snowcat)
