For Guests Who Visit Our Hotel By Car During The Winter Season
The snowy season starts in mid December and lasts until mid March. Weather in the countryside changes rapidly, so please use snow tires or bring chains for tires. National Route 17 is well shoveled most of the time; therefore, 4WD is not usually required as long as the car is equipped with snow tires (or tires with chains).
By Train
