“It was wonderful. I especially like the Lake Akan cruise and ryokan accommodation at Fujikawaguchiko. We didn’t get to actually see the Blue pond, so much snow it’s white instead but still lovely.
Too much food (kaiseki portion is so huge that none of us managed to finish). Daiichi Hotel’s buffet dinner was great! The udon noodles on the way to Rusutsu was surprisingly good – with a view to die for.
The Westin Rusutsu upstairs/downstairs initially was great till we realised we can’t possibly bring the luggages down because it would be impossible to bring it back up the steps. But the view!! and the powdery snow!! 👍”
