Niwa Cottage is located at the Northeast end of the Hakuba Valley, nestled at the lower slopes of the quiet Hakuba Norikura resort. This peaceful alpine setting is a perfect location for those looking for a true slopeside holiday experience. The lodge offers almost ski-in ski-out access to the Hakuba Norikura Satomi slopes, located less than a minutes’ walk from the property. The perfect location for powderhounds and families alike, who are looking to escape the crowds and experience skiing in Japan in it’s purest form. The ski resorts located at the northern end of the Hakuba Valley – Tsugaike, Hakuba Norikura and Hakuba Cortina – are fast gaining attention thanks to their huge snowfalls, superior snow conditions and quieter slopes. Hakuba Norikura features excellent wide open beginner slopes, perfect for first-time skiers/snowboarders and families. Intermediate skiers and snowboarders will love exploring the quiet slopes, when on some days it truly feels like you have the entire mountain all to yourself. For those seeking the ultimate Japan powder experience, Hakuba Norikura boasts open bowls of deep powder and adjoining lifts with the incredible Hakuba Cortina resort, giving access to Hakuba’s deepest snow and best off-piste terrain. Complimentary pick-up and drop-off at all Hakuba area bus and rail stations are provided upon arrival and departure.
Hakuba Niwa Cottage guests can also take advantage of the FREE 7-seater 4WD vehicle included with all bookings, giving you the freedom to explore everything the Hakuba Valley has to offer.
