All went well and we really enjoyed it. Snow in Canada wasn’t as good as normal. However, Niseko made up for it. Plenty of snow, and clear days (or part days). Perfect weather.
JAL was very good as usual, and the Hilton was very good. We will definitely go back to Niseko and stay at the Hilton. It seems to be in a quieter area than Hirafu, and access to the gondola was just outside. The chair lifts and buses in Niseko were good and we were able to get around with ease. We’re already thinking about going to Japan next year. Everyone always seems to be polite and we can get around easily (even though we only know a couple of words of Japanese). Just need to get over coming back to the heat and humidity.
Thank you for your efforts, I know I changed it a couple of times, but, all worked in well, and there were no problems with connections. I’ll probably leave it until a bit later this year to book, so we don’t change our minds. But we’re thinking of only going to Japan in 2012, and going back to Hakuba and then up to Niseko. But it’s only February, so we have plenty of time to think.
Thank you again.
