I stayed here for 5 nights during my trip to Niseko. Ryo is the best hostel manager I have ever come across. He is extremely welcoming and will regularly go out of his way to help his guests out in what ever way he can especially with transportation. He drives guests to the ski resort every morning which takes around...

山田先生人很好很親切,也主動提供滑雪相關的資訊和協助,對於來滑雪的人來說其實很便利。雖然地點和車站(走路5-10分鐘)、雪場(開車或搭巴士10-15分鐘)有些距離,但每天早上山田先生會開車載往雪場,他的車也有裝載雪板的配置,非常方便且貼心,總體交通時間不算太長,加上價格合理,讓我不會羨慕可以ski-in/out的旅館。附近風景很好也很安靜,冬天住客可能通常是來滑雪的,所以大家也都很早睡,晚上不會有吵鬧的問題,還有免費早餐、咖啡真的很划算,唯一遇到的缺點大概就是被子太暖了,我是怕熱的人一度被熱醒,但我忘記在睡前問山田先生要怎麼調暖氣。下次來滑雪我仍會考慮住這裡。 The owner is pretty nice and helpful. This place is wonderful for skiing even if it's a little far to Kutchan Station(walk in 5-10 min) and resort(drive/bus in 10-15 min) because the owner will drive to the resort every morning. The traffic time isn't too long and the price is reasonable so I don't think it is a worse...

Staying at Tabi Tsumugi is the wisest decision i made for my solo trip to Hokkaido this time.

My second time here, I will book this place every time. It's tempting to leave a bad review so people don't catch on to how great it is so I'm guaranteed a spot every year ;) Clean, friendly, Ryo speaks English very well and drives you to the hill twice a day, or to the local Onsen which is only...

Staying at Tabi-Tsumugi in Kutchan for a week instead of over-priced on-snow accomodation in Niseko was the best decision for my snow holiday. It is a clean, modern and well-equipped Japanese house which is cozy and home-like. There is a dry room for snow gear and the rooms are very well heated. Ryo the host will help you with anything...
