I am looking for some accommodation around the Hakuba area
Hi Gary, I stumbled upon your website and enjoyed reading your blog. The reason I came across your website was because I am looking for some accommodation around the Hakuba area which is above 2000m and easily accessible by vehicle, which would be preferable. Seeing as though you have experienced this area and the mountains, I was hoping you would be able to help me in my search for this type of accommodation.
Can you help?
Great to hear from ya and I enjoyed perusing your awesome cycling pics. You might be interested in meeting one of my friends who cycled all around South America: http://mebobandsurly.wordpress.com/
Trevor is also a FB member, so I can send a friend suggestion if you'd like.
As for Hakuba, I assume you are thinking about hotels, minshukus, ryokans, and the like, in which case I'm not familiar with any special accommodation sites unique to that area, other than Trip Advisor: http://bit.ly/JYLm0G
