Situated in the breathtakingly beautiful northern Japanese Alps, and the home of the 1998 winter Olympics, Hakuba is the central hub for 10 ski resorts with more than 200 combined runs. This amount of choice ensures that skiers and boarders of all levels are catered for.

  • Stayed for a week at the hotel and wouldn’t recommend anywhere else to stay in Hakuba. Best bar in town right down stairs, 1 minute walk to the quad, good clean rooms and great staff Will be coming back for another week next season and will be recommending to other friends that were in Hakuba this year.

  • I stayed here for a week in January and was very impressed with the service. The rooms are decent sized (especially for Japanese standards) and clean. The location of the hotel is amazing-literally a minute walk away from one of the main ski lifts of Happo-One.

  • Excellent location. Excellent snow. Modest clean rooms — we were not inside much at all. I have heard that the place is going through new management and opening a cafe. I look forward to visiting this gorgeous country and amazing place very soon.



The Rabbit Hole is our delicious cafe and burger bar attached to the hotel through the 2nd floor. The Rabbit Hole is open to the public for breakfast from 7:00 am to 10:30 am and lunch/dinner from 10:30 am to 10 pm (L.O. 9:30 pm).  Our trained baristas can prepare an exceptional cup of Allpress coffee to get you started on the slopes.  The bar is open until 10:00 pm with live music played almost every night of the season.





These burgers are the next best thing after mind blowing sex. I give them a 20\10.
