Hotel Alp or Akakura Central Hotel
« on: May 04, 2010, 10:47:57 PM »
Hi Myoko peeps, I am a new poster to this forum & looking forward to a week there next Feb with 3 mates
 (booked flights yesterday)
Looking at maps Both hotels seem to be either ski in ski out or very close to it. I have read reports on Trip advisor but have a couple of questions:
Can you ski from here to Chuo lift AND Champion lift? (I realise they are on different tickets)
Is it a tough walk uphill from the main street to these hotels and how far is it?
Are they handy to a variety of eating places?
Which hotel would you pick?
Sorry to ask so much but It is hard to get a handle on the terrain from maps and I have been caught out before with big uphill walks to lifts and or hotels in Nozawa & Shiga.
I look forward to being part of this forum & my Myoko experience after looking across to it from the other side of the valley for the past two seasons.

Welcome aboard snowjunky

Here's the location for Akakura Central Hotel - http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=105247672361917185150.00048404e1819270c4ac5&ll=36.897263,138.175478&spn=0.010021,0.022724&z=16&iwloc=00048404e39faecbf3e7e and here the location for Resort Hotel Alp - http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=105247672361917185150.00048404e1819270c4ac5&ll=36.896628,138.175478&spn=0.010022,0.022724&z=16&iwloc=00048404e39fae5186066

As you can see they are virtually across the road from each other. Never stayed at either so can't recommend one over the other. I am fairly certain you could get to both Chuo and Champion. Might be just a little bit of poling across to the bottom of Champion though.

You can easily walk to a number of eating places (and stagger home) - just check the links on the map I gave above. Hope this helps.

Good luck! MG

Well seeing you asked I do have a question:- on previous trips I have stayed in a western room and a japanese room.
Can you tell me how a combination western/Japanese room is set up?
Would they have western beds but more room?

Depends on the hotel but I think if it's a combination it probably means beds with a Japanese style sitting area.
