Comments from accommodation

Asahikan is a friendly minshuku run by the Koshigoe family ( including the dog and cats ) since 1930. Located at the base of Yuzawa Park Ski Area, Asahikan will pick up all guests at Echigo Yuzawa Station and take them to any of the 19 ski resorts in Yuzawa. All of the Japanese style rooms are clean and spacious, and the Koshigoe meals are highly recommended, with a pleasant mix of Western and Japanese style food on the menu.

The Koshigoe family are extremely friendly and helpful and make all guests feel very welcome. If you are lucky you may even get a lesson from the ski expert himself ( Mr Koshigoe )!
