Hakuba hotels may offer more variety than those of any other Japanese ski area. Hakuba has long been popular with Japanese visitors in both summer and winter due to its scenic location and the wide range of things to do in and around the area. To cater to this local market, there are a number of established traditional hotels in Hakuba or ‘ryokan’ which offer an immersive Japanese experience with futons on tatami and onsite hot-springs or ‘onsens’, warm Japanese hospitality and local cuisine, a notable example being Hakuba Hifumi. Since the Nagano Olympics of 1998 Hakuba gained notoriety as a world class ski destination. In preparation for the Olympics, Hakuba hotels emerged in key bases such as Happo Village and the base of Wadano no Mori and renowned hotels such as Tokyu Hotel Hakuba underwent major refurbishments. Following a huge surge in international demand in the past 10 years, a great deal of new Hakuba accommodation has been developed including apartments, chalets and modern Hakuba hotels designed to cater specifically for the international visitor.
