Accommodation Hakuba Accommodation

With Hakuba accommodation being spread across a valley that comprises 10 ski resorts, knowing where to stay can seem a little daunting! So we have put together individual Hakuba area guides with detailed run-downs on the lay of the land to help you decide which Hakuba accommodation base is best for you.

There are 3 main Hakuba accommodation areas, 2 of which provide direct access to the slopes of Happo one; the peaceful and serene Wadano Forest and lively, characterful Happo Village. The third area is Echoland which lies between Happo One and Hakuba 47 – this is the most up and coming area of Hakuba having transformed over recent years into the undisputed ‘restaurant district’ of Hakuba.

With a huge variety of accommodation styles in Hakuba, visitors can reasonably expect to find exactly what they are looking for, from luxury, modern apartments to backpacker-style lodges, and everything in between.


In contrast to some other very popular international resorts in Japan, Hakuba maintains its Japanese traditions when it comes to all things, but especially accommodation. The original Japan ski resort accommodation is a ryokan, or Japanese-style inn, and Hakuba has no shortage of them.

Guests who want a more Japanese experience can select to stay in this type of accommodation, which offers futon bedding on tatami floors, low seating, and will almost always have an onsen (natural hot spring bath), which is typically where guests will bathe (together, divided by sexes, and in some traditional ryokans, actually takes the place of in-room private bathing facilities). Meals are sometimes included within the ryokan stay package, and will mostly be traditional Japanese dishes.

Ryokan style Hakuba accommodations almost always feature natural onsen hot-spring facilities and it is common place to dress in your yukata when walking between your room and the onsen. Some of the more luxurious offerings even feature private onsens in the rooms. One such very special boutique ryokan is Hakuba Hifumi, where an exclusive selection of the individually styled Deluxe and Suite rooms feature private open-air onsen baths. If you are looking for the ultimate in luxury Japanese accommodation, Hakuba Hifumi certainly ticks all the boxes! You can expect heart warming hospitality and top class service from this family run Hakuba ryokan. For a centrally located true Japanese experience, we would highly recommend Taigakukan. This long standing family owned and operated ryokan is located in the heart of Happo village.

Not forgetting that Hakuba ryokan also offer the chance to discover traditional Japanese cuisine. From breakfast through to dinner, you can expect to savour delicate and exquisite Japanese dishes, prepared with art form like precision.

Most ryokans are found in the Happo Village area, with a few dotted around other Hakuba resort areas.

Western Style Accommodation

For those used to their western comforts such as private bathrooms, western-style bedding, and other modern facilities, Hakuba offers some excellent Western style options. Our top picks include – Hakuba TokyuSierra Resort  and The Mominoki. You can expect generous sized rooms, large comfortable beds, excellent breakfasts (with Western and Japanese options), onsen and spa facilities, concierge services, shuttle buses, restaurants and bars.

Self-Catered Accommodation

For larger groups or those who prefer their own space, booking a luxury home away from home is an ideal option. With the growing popularity of Hakuba and people’s love of their home comforts, there are an ever growing number of self-contained Hakuba accommodation options. Some properties offer a full concierge service, with resort and supermarket shuttles, while others come equipped with a 4WD vehicle allowing you to explore the Hakuba Valley and it’s 10 ski resorts fully and with ease. We have picked out a few of our favourites.

Mountain Side Hakuba: Offering one of the most exclusive and sought after locations, right next to Happo One’s Kokusai lift, these luxurious 3 bedroom ski-in ski-out condominiums offer superior levels of comfort, convenience and style.
