Situated in the Japanese Alps Hakuba incorporates three linked resorts Hakuba 47, Goryu and Happo One. From the Northern end of the valley is a further three resorts Iwatake, Tsugaike, Norikura, and Cortina. Offering a range of terrain from beginner to advanced. Most of our accommodation options are based around Happo One in the Wadano area which has access to a good range of restaurants and Izakayas (Little Japanese Bars).

 

RECOMMENDATION

Saturday often sees the resort getting a little busier with people coming from Tokyo for the weekend. Why not explore a little more of Japan and take a day trip to Jigokudani Wild Monkey Hotsprings.
