    Where to get chains?

    G'day Hully. I've bought Konig chains from Ray's in Myrtleford (no commercial interset on my part). When I changed cars I returned the old chains for a credit of half the original purchase price. Very good service and I find the Konig's to be easy to fit and effective.

    Question ski hire Zao Onsen and Appi Kogen

    Hi there. There is a place called Best Rental in your area and it has some good gear. Their boot range was new and varied and they had a range of powder skis.

    The return leg on the Skyliner can be used whenever, you get a ticket to trade for a seat reservation on the day/train you want to use it on.

    I'm staying at Appi at Pension Mutti but would like the flexibility to try somewhere else nearby. The split fold info is great thanks PMG, I'm using Takyubin but still need to get skis to the hill each day!

    I'm looking at roughly 15,000 yen for 4 days ex Morioka for a Mazda 3 with 4WD and snow tyres. This is through Times Car Rental.

    Hi there, long time reader - first time poster. I'm planning on renting a car for the first time and wonder if I should go with the deals offered on Tocoo or wait until closer to my arrival date (early Feb). Any advice? Cheers
