Stayed for 8 nights for a skiing trip with 3 friends - very friendly and easy to deal with from booking to checking out. Village shuttle bus stop nearby, as well as lots of restaurants and bars. Would stay again.

Stayed at Grandpapas for 8 nights. A very cosy place with a nice common room where they light a fire every afternoon. Compared to other offers in Hirafu the rates are low, so I did not expect too much, of course the room was small, but acutally had 2 floors and could have hosted 4 people instead of the two...

Had a great stay at GrandPapa from Dec 25-31, 2016. Excellent location and easy to get into mid/upper Hirafu. Breakfast was great (amazing bacon BTW) and the rooms were warm. Friendly staff and cheaply priced. Will definitely stay here again. Fondue was all right, but the wine was better ;)

My family and I were trying to find a place to have a good Christmas Dinner. We booked this restaurant 1 month ago, thinking that it was going to be great! We walked 15 minutes trying to find this place, and when we eventually got there, we had no idea how to get in. When we got inside, no one...

I recently tried to book some accommodation through Grandpapa lodge (to stay at Alice Pension) and initially had very good and responsive contact from Kohei in making the booking and facilitating the booking including providing my credit card details 'securely'. Two days after I made the booking, my credit card details had been used for a fraudulent purchase and was...

Location: 5 min walk from hirafu intersection (which is another 6-7 min walk to ski lifts), although on first/last day the owners will pick up/drop off from within the village. Village has free shuttle to ski lifts (nearest stop around 2min walk). Pros: Breakfast is fantastic. Owners are very nice. Generally a quiet crowd. Relatively cheap and accessible Cons: squeaky...

I agree with the other reviewers that the owners are extremely helpful: punctual when picking us up from the bus area, recommending a ski rental place, and getting our ski passes for us. The breakfast was also delicious every morning. However, it is definitely a place for backpackers and younger adults- there were some bugs in our room (ladybugs and...
