We arrived home this morning and had a fantastic time in Zao. The trains were easy to navigate and efficient, and we were met at Zao Onsen bus station by the hotel shuttle. (Thank you for forwarding our arrival time email to them). Hotel Meitoya So is delightful and we were extremely well looked after.

The skiing was very good with plenty of snow as you can see from the photo from the hotel window. We would highly recommend your service and the experience in Zao. Thank you very much

Hi Hiro
Thanks for your’e email a while back..I got back from Japan nearly 2 weeks ago..My apologies in getting back to you, at such late notice..
I had a great time in Japan,as always..I think this was my 18th trip back to Japan and I must say .It only gets better,each time I go back..
Hokkoda was one of the main highlights for me..Hotel Jogakura,was exceptional, with the service they provided and the incredible food,
that was on offer..And such a beautiful place to stay at..
The hotel manager Mr Hasegawa,was an exceptional host..Met me at the airport.(all good with everything)..
The last day of the trip (Friday) it rained..(no good for Skiing)..So Mr Hasegawa and his stuff took me and other guests to Yachi Hot springs and then to a place, lower down,in a village for traditional Amori lunch (something called Bachu?) Beef and onion with raw egg.(it was delicious ) They were very obliging..Great to have good Japanese hospitality all round..
I would certainly stay there again.

I said to my husband today on the chairlift that I must email you this afternoon! Our taxi driver was waiting for us when we arrived at the station thank you for that. We have had some great tree skiing in the powder here at ALTS Bandai, we just need more snow overnight so that we have fresh tracks for our last day. The hotel is very comfortable and everyone is very helpful, we are enjoying our onsens after skiing!
Well it is time for my onsen.
Cheers Anne

Hi Hiro

The cat skiing was fantastic, a really fun experience. Definitely worth doing.
We didn’t have fresh snow but the snow was still good to ski.
A few pics attached.
