We is booked for Myoko - Akakura Onsen - for Jan 21 - 29

Waiting is a PITA!


Akakura onsen: all the joys of sitting on a fun fair ride without any of the funfair. Or the ride. Enjoy the onsen... thats not there. Isnt it just a few crappy hotel baths? Sorry, the red mist descends at the mere mention of akakura onsen. Im hoping you of course just mean youre just staying there and not riding that crap hole. Of course you are! As i say, red mist! It gets in the way of logic :) Myoko = lovely. Akakura onsen = cute. Akakura onsen ski jo = **** that place.

Hey Stemik, are you a Hakuba resident?

If so I'm sure you'd have the low-down on the best local boerwurst !! :wave:

Yeah, got that one covered - we stayed at the Marillen January this year and the Bratwurst isn't bad atall !

The Huttenzauber just across the slope is even better and has a wide range of Bavarian fare and nice Weissbier. It's only open at lunch time though - makes for an ideal lunch stop.

Mmmmmmmmmm......just thinking about it currywurst and weissbier for lunch slopeside. It really doesn't get better than that !! :D

No, we thought we'd try the Hakuba Springs this time: In-house onsen, Jack's Bar next door to watch the Asian Cup footy at night, and opposite the bus stop for Goryu where Mrs. and Young Miss Big Al prefer to ski.

Be good to touch base though mate - you obviously know the lie of the land! :thumbsup:

Likewise Chriselle, it'd be good to catch up & share a Molson slopeside! :thumbsup:
