Great ryokan with perfect service!
We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights with our two children. The hotel is located very nicely within the forest next to a river and is stylishly designed.
The Japanese breakfast and kaiseki-type dinner was amazing - every dish was great, creative and tasted fabulous!
The staff was really helpful, friendly and professional and did everything to make our stay as good as possible. We visited the hotel with our two small children and the staff did a great job to accommodate us - for example, they prepared the favorite Japanese food for our daughter and served it in the room so that we could bring the children to bed before going to the restaurant to get dinner ourselves. Afterwards, they even called the room to check if she liked it and if they can improve anything for the next night. Overall excellent service, even by high Japanese standards.
We can fully recommend to stay at this great hotel.
Relaxing experience close to the slopes of Niseko
We stayed at this ryokan while skiing for five days at Niseko and had a wonderfully relaxing experience away from the hustle and bustle of the Grand Hirafu base. The inn provides a shuttle bus service three times a day on a fixed schedule to and from all of the Niseko United bases. Transit time was 20-40 minutes depending on the stops. It is slightly inconvenient having to stick with the inn’s fixed schedule, but the experience we had staying at Moku No Sho made the inconvenience worthwhile. We had two separate vacations—time on the slopes, and time enjoying a Japanese inn.
Our room was very comfortable and modern with Western style beds and seating. We had a room with a private, outdoor onsen which was a wonderful way to relax after a day on the slopes. The restaurant (where breakfasts and dinners were included in the room rate) consists of a series of private rooms where we were served traditional Japanese breakfasts and kaiseki dinners (while seated at a Western-style table with chairs). The food quality and variety were excellent. A couple of nights, we upgraded to the teppanyaki grill which was also excellent. One of the highlights was the lounge area where we enjoyed pre- and post-dinner drinks relaxing around a fireplace listening to well selected jazz and/or rock music.
Communicating in English was occasionally tricky, but we found one staff member who was reasonably fluent and could help us when needed. All told, this was a wonderful experience.
Worst Service from Japanese Ryokan
Today I have the worst service and experience from Moko No Sho. First of all, I have to complain the waitress serving the dinner. The waitress comes in and out slamming the door and then puts the dishes loudly on the table. Then nothing is said at all except “finish?” and at the end of meal “Drinks?”. The waitress from the start to end comes in serving with the very unhappy face on her. Never, in my 15 years staying in Japan ryokan and onsen did I get this kind of bad service. And the worst part, is taking away my son’s dish without asking? I have to say “excuse me” in Japanese to get her attention.
I will never come to Niseko and Moko No Sho from Tsuruga group ever again!
0/10. Bad service especially gives the customer the bad face and like you did something bad.
I really don’t understand why the reviewers give it high score reviews when it doesn’t meet the basic ryokan onsen and service standard.
Perfect stay in Niseko (non-skiers)
Great dinner with free selection of sake and other drinks. Interesting concept to have unlimited drinks and snacks at the lounge. Overall only 25 rooms make it very peaceful and far from the type of crowded tourist Onsen places. There is also a good hifi system at the Lounge but unfortunately we cannot select our own songs. The Onsen itself is a perfect once in a lifetime mix of outdoor pool with falling snow that melts on the tongue.
The Perfect Escape
Stayed here with my two daughters in a western/Japanese style room with private rotenburo. Couldn’t have been more perfect. All meals served in communal room or private rooms - great to have the variety. Magical shared spaces and first class shared onsen baths. Highly recommended.
