Dining Room Level Floor Plans

The main entrance to Pension Woody Note is on the Dinning Room Level. The entrance contains the heated ski/snowboard and boot storage area. The Dining Room Level also has male and female toilets each with a built-in bidet, the dinning room with fire place, TV Lounge, the kitchen, and the Shimatani family rooms. As these floor plans show there is no official reception desk. Keeping with the informality of Pension Woody Note, guests checking-in or requiring assistance present themselves at the kitchen door announcing themselves with “su-mi-ma-sen すみません” or just plain “excuse me”, and someone will come out to assist.

Free WIFI Internet

Pension Woody Note has a high speed WiFi Internet. The best WiFi reception is on the Dining Room Level. Reception at other levels can be intermittent. At breakfast and Apres-ski multiple users can been seen simultaneously using the facility. This means that you may use your laptop, iPad, tablet or smart phone to make telephone calls via the Pension Woody Note WiFi.

Mobile (Cell) Phone Coverage

Mobile (Cell) phone coverage is excellent in Hirafu (Niseko).  However it does depend upon your service provider.  The coverage in the mountains is less reliable.  In order of preference for coverage the three main telcos in Hirafu are:

  • AU
  • Docomo
  • SoftBank

Mobile (Cell) Phones for non-residents

It is illegal for Japanese telcos to contract with non-residents.  However mobile phones may be rented from, and disposable SIM cards may be purchased online.  At the time of writing the best seems to be:  eConnect Japan
