Kumanote Bear Den
Amazing in-village location across from a famous natural hot spring, conveniently located to all the village offers, and walking distance to the lifts in Nozawa Onsen.
Chris accommodated our requests to receive our luggage which we arranged to send ahead. Very helpful host! Accommodation was very comfortable with an Onsen conveniently located mere steps away. Visits to Onsen were made easy with the towels, slippers and bath soap he provided. He also has a nice new restaurant Winterland near the bus stop. Worth a visit!
What an amazing apartment and thanks to Chris who went above and beyond for us. Nothing was a problem and we had an amazing stay. We will definitely be back!
Our family had the pleasure of staying at Kumanote - mountain bear for 6 nights in Jan 2018. From the outset of booking our accommodation in August, Chris was extremely helpful in his suggestions and tips for our stay, right down to where to hire ski gear from, restaurant bookings, delivery of luggage & booking transfers.
We were welcomed warmly into our apartment and shown around town. During our stay we did not want for anything. Chris and Jackie were always available to assist with anything we required, at anytime.
The beds were extremely comfortable (a particular highlight for us all after a big day on the slopes), and the in house drying room was a god send. Being located across from a lovely onsen was great to.
We were lucky enough to stay for the fire festival and Chris gave us much insight into where to watch and explain the details.
Thank Chris, we loved our stay and hope to enjoy your hospitality some time soon.
