It grows on you, but first impressions were a bit dodge. The room was very small, (which is to be expected in Japan), it smelt a bit of fumes from the gas heater and the tiny TV was pointless as it was fixed to the wall in a position you couldn't see from the bed, had only local channels and...

I've been traveling to Niseko to ski for over a decade and have always stayed with Toshi and Rie at Woody Note. This is a basic pension in "log cabin" buildings, but what makes me return is the tremendous hospitality of the hosts! Rates haven't changed since I started staying there, you are always remembered, they fall over backwards to...

This is a quaint Japanese run hotel with very friendly and hospitable proprietors. The breakfast is nice and typical of small family run Japanese hotels. Rooms are comfortable and not your standard Prince hotel types. The prices are very reasonable. I feel like I am on holiday in Japan here (short of staying in a Ryokan) especially in not very...

This is our fourth year at Niseko and one of the reasons we keep coming back is Woody Note. Our kids wouldn't dream of us staying anywhere else. Toshi and Rie run a wonderful family business and work incredibly hard to make stays here a unique blend of Japanese and western hospitality. It is true pension or B&B style accommodation,...

Stayed here for 5 days over new year and it more than exceeded expectations. This was our second trip to Hirafu so we already knew the location was perfect for us - situated on one of the quiet streets in the lower village, on the lift shuttle bus route (stops right outside) and a 2-5 min walk to lovely izakayas...

This is superb accommodation run by people who really understand hospitality. It's part of a quirky little combination of lodges that play on the "note" theme including a bar (Half Note) that delivers professional quality live jazz on the weekends. Indeed music is a very important part of the experience - it's not often you discover what looks like a...

Toshio San and Rie San run this family owned Japanese Pension (based on French Styled Pensions) for both short and long term accommodation situated directly opposite Bus Stop 2 in Lower Hirafu. It is not intuitive but this is the best situated budget accommodation on the mountain. Toshio San takes you to the Lifts in the morning and the free...

Originally I was travelling to Niseko (Hirafu) by myself in late February, so asked the travel agent to recommend a 'lodge' type experience where I might meet like minded people. Because of work commitments I had to delay the trip by 3 weeks and and one of my adult sons joined me. I stuck with Woody Note and wasn't disappointed,...
