Akakura Kanko Hotel
Established in 1937, the Akakura Kanko Hotel with red roof and white exterior is the symbol of Myoko Plateau. The hotel was fully refurbished in recent years and is the crown of Myoko Kogen when it comes to accommodation.
This hotel has very few westerners staying at it so be prepared for a very Japanese experience.
Where is the Akakura Kanko Resort and Spa?The hotel is located right in the middle of the slopes of Akakura Onsen Ski area and is absolute ski-in/ski-out.
Accommodation OptionsThere are numerous options both full Japanese style with Tatami mat floors and futons and western style with twin and double western beds.
In addition there are a variety of standards available. The main building is the older annexe and the rooms tend to be smaller than and not as glitzy as those in the new wing which has deluxe rooms, some with a fireplace and some with private open air bath on the balcony.
There are rooms to suit singles, couples, twins, triples and quads.
Hotel FacilitiesThe hotel has some great hot spring bathing facilities on site both public and private.
There is a full-service day spa with massage services plus and a fitness centre.
Free wifi is available throughout the hotel as well as in the rooms. There is also a laundry and dry cleaning service available for an additional fee.
There is also conference facilities and wedding facilities if you are looking for a place to do business or get hitched!
Restaurants and BarsThere are two restaurants to choose from one with Japanese cuisine and the other French. There is also a very nice café facing the slopes serving reasonably good coffee and a variety of treats and pastries.
Other than that there is a good selection of restaurants and Izakaya in downtown Akakura or a larger selection in down town Myoko Kogen
A shuttle bus runs to/from the hotel and downtown Myoko Kogen however it only operates until 6pm so if you are heading into town for dinner you will need a return taxi.
