New Furano Prince, Furano, Japan
A fantastic ski in, ski out location at the bottom of the Furano Ropeway lift. The large resort style hotel prides itself in resembling a space station, we're not sure this is something to be proud of, but if you can look past the exterior then it's a wonderful ski hotel. The indoor and outdoor thermal baths (onsen) are perfect for a rejuvenating soak and there's also a Finnish sauna and massage services if you fancy.
Within the hotel there are 4 restaurants, 2 bars/lounges, 2 cafés and a bakery as well as a souvenir shop and ski rental outlet. Everything you could need, all under one roof. Whether you fancy local in season dishes, traditional Japanese classics, fresh sushi or a wider choice at the international buffet your cravings are covered here, though it's easy enough to pop into town to try some of the further 500 options a ten minute taxi away. Soh's Bar is a cosy spot for a drink, a log and stone cabin set in the hotel's forest just a short walk down the forest path. Or try the Pan Kobo bakery full of freshly baked bread each morning.
