Very good quality accommodation and we'll located for access to the Gondola. They also offer a valet service for skis and Boots which enables you to drop your skis and Boots at the end of the day just near the Gondola and you can walk back to your apartment in your snow boots which the store for you during the day.
They are dry and warm your boots overnight.
It is about a comfortable 5 minute walk to the Gondola which you can do in snow boots and then you pick up your ski boots and skis at the gondola.
The apartments are modern, large and well furnished.
Clean, modern, good location, well lit apartment with plenty of sunlight coming through. We had 7 pax in a 3 bedroom apartment. Did not feel crowded, with a decent amount of living and dining space. Bedrooms only came with Single beds, not sure if it is just the situation in our apartment. Reasonably well equipped kitchen, nothing fancy but serves all basic needs. Was strangely lacking individual soup/rice bowls though, thought that would have been a staple In Japan. Replacements (toaster and frying pan) were efficiently dealt with, delivered next day or same day.
Friendly front desk. Clean room . Modern. But slow WiFi.
I have had a great experience staying in Yama Shizen. I was travelling with group of 5 adults and 1 children. We were staying for four nights.
Our room was Yama Shizen 404 East (it was actually comprised of 2 rooms : 404A (more like studio room) and 404B (2 BR with 1 bathroom and 1 toilet).
Our living room has a direct view of Mt.Yotei.
My mom is on wheelchair; and they have an lift access so it was really convenience for us.
It was also quite close proximity to Lawson and Seicomart.
Will definitely come back for next winter holiday experience.
Good location, the apartment was great! The staff were awesome and the ski valet was excellent!
