  3. Just a few photos of Nozawa Onsen, Shiga Kogen and Zao Onsen. Thanks to SJ as I won some lift tickets to Nozawa Onsen. I wish I had taken more photos of Nozawa Onsen as thanks for the lift tickets but ended up having to much fun to think to take photos (Nozawa was our first stop). Hopefully the photos of the other resorts can make up for it... Nozawa Onsen, 3-6 Feb Shiga Kogen, 7-11 Feb Zao Onsen, 14-17 Feb
  4. Hi BHB I booked through the Japanese version of Rakuten. Yeah not sure if its really a 3 minute walk hence the reason why I want to know how often the shuttle bus runs around the town. Oomiya Ryokan, Zao Shiki No Hotel and Le Vert Zao were my other picks but Hotel Lucent was a better deal but can't vouch for them as I haven't been to Zao before.
  5. Because we have luggage? Walking 3 minutes isn't long but if its through snow filled roads with our luggage its going to be a pain. Or am I being unreasonable?
  6. Does anyone know how frequently the shuttle bus operates around Zao? I'm trying to figure out whether we can just walk from the Yamako Bus Terminal to our hotel (Hotel Lucent Takamiya) when we arrive (supposed to be a 3 minute walk) or whether we wait for the shuttle bus. Thanks!
  7. Just booked 5 nights at Hotel Lucent Takamiya for Feb 2011. Can't wait! Anyone stayed there before?
  8. LOL I think we'll just stick to the one hotel and deal with eating the same food for 5 nights. Thanks!
  9. Thanks Black Mountain and muikabochi. Even if there is one or two places open it suits us fine. Some people in our group dont like the idea of having to eat the same thing in the hotel for 5 nights in a row...

  11. Hi A group of us are thinking of going Zao in February 2011 for 5 nights. I get the impression that having dinner at your hotel is a must - is there really no other option other than dinner at your hotel? Even if there is one of two places to eat which we can walk to is fine... I've found a few places to stay at which have pretty good rates but without meals. But if there really is nowhere to eat other than your hotel them I may have to consider a few other places that offer a good rate for dinner and breakfast. Thanks!
  12. 11 days Nozawa Onsen/Shiga Kogen 5 days Zao Going to be there from 1 February 2011. Can't wait!
  13. I stayed in Meteor this season too (the Log Hotel not the pension) and agree that its a great price for a great place!
