5 days in Hakuba

Written by Sally and Michael a Skier from Sydney, Australia
27/03/2014
We had 5 days in Hakuba at the end of February and stayed in La Neige. Although we thought it was expensive for a japanese ski resort hotel we were really impressed with the rooms, the views of the forest and the service. However the food in the restaurant was terrible - we couldn't understand the need to do a western breakfast . We would have loved a japanese breakfast. We had drinks by the fire on a couple of occasions, but the drinks expensive and we were annoyed being charged $10 for a tiny bowl of nuts. However, the staff were so friendly and would drop you to nearby slopes to ski or to onsens and the ski shop. The restaurants were fabulous and cheap. The wine was $25 per bottle. It's prettier than Niseko but the snow was disappointing (unusual we gather) but we really enjoyed the longer runs on Happone and the powder in Cortina. It was not worth paying for a guide - expensive and a short day. We discovered more runs on our own. The bus return to the airport was so easy and comfortable but you need to work out the connections. The bullet train was also efficient but 2 or 3 changes are necessary.

Spring Skiing in Japan

Written by Lesley and Pete a Skier from Melbourne, Australia
27/03/2014

We had fantastic service from Travelplan, particularly from Leah, very responsive and helpful. This was our first Japan Skiing experience and Travelplan made it a wonderful experience with everything fitting in the right places.

The travelling was without any hitches and all on time, accommodation in Tokyo was very central and easy access to trains etc. The only warning I would give to that is to make sure you nominate non-smoking if that is what you want, whole floors of smoking rooms at the Plaza Kaio Hotel.

Loads of snow at Hakuba and no queues for lifts although they were all running even with reduced crowds.

Our visit was from 10th 18th March and this is late in the season for a lot of the operators so lots of nightlife and restaurants had already closed. Those that were open were great, particularly recommend Mimi's at the Pheonix Hotel, went there twice!!!

Luna Hotel was comfortable and the staff were very good and helpful, menu was unimaginative and more western than we would like so only ate there once and the bar was very quiet as they did not have many guests.

Leah organised equipment hire and the lift passes, again great service when we got there and everything worked well. We also did a tour to the Snow Monkey, Sake Brewery and Temple, again very well organised, interesting and worth doing.

We will definitely go back to Japan and to Travelplan, thank you again.

One of the best

Written by Kathryn a Skier from Adelaide, South Australia
03/02/2014

Getting there was so easy with a pick up from the airport and dropped right at the door to the hotel. Did take a lot longer (8hrs)than originally thought due to weather and traffic in Japan, but a lovely drive to sit back and relax.

The hotel was fabulous and all the staff were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. 

The location was so close to the lifts, just a short walk up the street.  The restaurant was lovely.  A great range to chose from the buffet at both breakfast and dinner.  Lots of other lovely places to eat within a 5 min walk.  The Onsen was so relaxing after a days skiing.

Plenty of things to see and do in and around the area.  The monkeys in the hot springs are a must.

The snow and mountains were excellent and it was easy to get around.

The town was a lovely walk approx 15 min from the hotel Couldn't fault anything about the trip or the ease in which it was all booked for me. 

Thank you.

Le Neige Higashikan in Hakuba

Written by Wojtek a Skier from Melbourne, Australia
19/3/2013

What a fantastic hotel in the Wadano forest of Hakuba. Definitely 5-star - a pleasure to stay in there.

The Happo-one resort and surrounding Hakuba-47, Goryu, Iwatake, Tsugaike-Kogen, Cortina and Norikura resorts would challenge even experts, yet at the same provide most delightful cruising runs. The snow quality is superb - Japanese powder is the best snow in the world.

The cuisine in the surrounding restaurants, from Wadano to Ecoland is magnificent, ingredients very fresh and of highest quality.
 

As Arnie said: "I'll be back...".

Hakuba after Niseko

Written by Benita a Skier from Murrumba Downs, QLD Australia
26/1/2013

Mominoki Hotel was a far cry from our accommodation in Niseko. Apartments are the only way to go for family of 4 as hotel room not enough space & really needed an update & bathroom was just a laugh thank goodness for the lovely onsen at the hotel.

Mountains were fabulous plenty to get around we were just spoilt from amount of snow in Niseko.

Snowmonkey tour is a must with sake brewery & temple included, worth the day away from skiing.

Hakuba lovely mountains just suggest alternative accommodation.

Fantastic all 4 star ski holiday to hakuba Japan on a budget

Written by Michelle a Skier from Melbourne, Australia
10/4/2012

From the moment we arrived in Japan we loved it! Navigating our way to Hakuba from Tokyo was an eye opening adventure in itself travelling from the high tech city of tokyo to the slow paced countryside of Hakuba. Morino lodge was a pleasant surprise nestled in the wadano area of Hakuba surrounded by forests. The lodge was a short walk to a shuttle stop to any of the ski resorts, walking distance to many restaurants and bars, and the hosts couldn't be more helpful! Fantastic spring skiing with an amazing choice of slopes to ski on, something for everyone. Overall a fantastic 4 star holiday without breaking the bank, highly recommend Hakuba for your next ski adventure!

Indifferent skiing in japan

Written by David a Skier from Sydney, Australia
28/4/2011

Skied 3 areas, Happo 1, Hakuba 47 & Ioweteka.  . good snow depth ,limited new snow. Resorts had a mixture of old & new lifts but overall too many old ,slow 2 seaters. After skiing mainly Colorado over 25 years, with our favourites being Snowmass & Vail, can''t recommend these areas.  

Second week was at Shiga Kogen. Better accommodation & lifts. However on day 2 had a slow speed unexplained fall on right side & fractured femur, First major injury i n 62 years  of skiing. Excellent hospital care. Praying I will be skiing next year!

Our Hakuba/Travelplan experience

Written by George a Skier from Walcha, NSW. Australia
8/4/2011

Abigail from Travelplan provided us with all the knowledge that we needed for s wonderful week at Hakuba.We found the terrain challenging and enjoyed every minute. Our Hotel was outstanding--there was never a moments hesitation when we sought advice--a phone call to reserve atable was made before we could blink.

The Japanese are kind, thoughtful and helpful in a way that makes us realise what''s missing elsewhere.

Thank you Travelplan for a well executed ski holiday.

Hakuba Hana

Written by Derek a Skier from Hampton, Victoria
9/4/2010

Hana Hakuba was a great place to stay and highly recommend. Hakuba a bit disappointing compared to other japanese skiing. Village quite spread out, scruffy and lacking atmosphere. Local shuttle not very regular or convenient...ended up walking a lot.

Hakuba - something good, something not

Written by Tim a Skier from Melbourne, Australia
8/4/2010

Spent 8 days in Hakuba in late Jan 2010 after skiing a variety of other Japanese resorts over recent years. Hakuba is actually a town in the valley, from which ascend a number of resorts available on 1 ticket. 

Most accommodation is near the foot of Happo One, the biggest (area) resort as well as the most vertical. Worth also trying 3 other resorts in the valley Goryu / Hakuba 47, Tsugaike and Cortina. Patrollers are strict except for Cortina, so it''s hard to get freshies without going out of bounds.

Getting around Hakuba is a pain. Restaurants and bars are spread out so you'll have to walk or take shuttle (which costs).  Shuttle is slow and routes confusing.
