Very good location and services provided.”
Very good location as it is juz beside a ski centre with a ski school. The hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the 2 onsens so much. Great experience for me to try their open air onsen on a winter snowing day haha. One of the service provided that shocked me is they will drive you anytime to anywhere in Zao Area. I appreciate that so much. This Zao Trip is the great highlight of my japan trip!
