ETM I know a few people that stay at toemu and dont mind it. It seems nice enough.
Futon beds, communal toilet and showers.
Easy english bookings.

mtw Good to hear

Leaning towards the south as I've done the north before. Shiga Kogen, Hakuba, and Nozawa Onsen for a week each... Any suggestions for good accommodation in Nozawa Onsen? I've already found some pretty good looking deals for the other two that I think I'll book.

ETM Those dates are perfect for everywhere in japan.

mtw Sorry to kind of hijack the thread, but I have essentially the same question except I'd be there from ~24th Jan through 18th Feb.

Would you go North or South?

dreampow At that time of year I would hit up Hokkaido all the way. Way higher chances of scoring superb conditions. Rusutsu could work well with young ones.

We've got 14 nights to play with and the wife would like 2 of those in Tokyo so it means we will have to fly into there and transfer to wherever we're gonna stay for the rest of the time then head back to Tokyo to fly home.
I mentioned Hakuba just off what we'd read on the net if it definitely worth making the trip to Hokkaido I'll look into that although the wife may be sad about the monkeys.
In this case, Takkyubin ya gear to ya accomodation as soon as ya land in Tokyo so ya don't have to cart it around with ya!!!!!

And I reckon it's a wise choice to go North at that time of the season!!!!!

And ya can always leave the snow monkeys till next time ya there in a later month, as I'm sure you'll wanna go back!!!!!

Purely because it is early season I would say yes. Hit Rusutsu, that place rocks.
