Once in Hakuba

Hakuba House is located in the upper Wadano area of Hakuba, close to the Sakka Kita-one quad lift at Happo resort. Free inter-resort shuttles leave from right next door, so it’s easy to enjoy all resorts of the Hakuba valley during your trip. We also may run private trips from the lodge to Cortina or Tsugaike on big powder days.

For advanced skiers & riders, there is an awesome sidecountry tree run that exits past the lodge. There is also easy access to the big vertical descents of the north-side backcountry of Happo-one. Read on for more information about our location.

Ski-in / Ski-out – The best thing about our location is that you can ski right back to the front door. For most of the season you can also clip into your bindings out front and ski down to the Sakka lifts. Otherwise, it’s just a 180m (3 min) walk.

Restaurants & Bars – Hakuba house offers the “Hakuba-House-Dinner-Drop-Off” shuttle service to get you to any restaurant in Hakuba. If the restaurant you choose is in Wadano, walking home is fine, while anything further afield will require a Taxi (approx ¥2500). For those wanting to continue the party after the lodge bar closes (10pm) there are plenty of bars in the Wadano and surrounding area open later – just ask our staff for their picks. Further information can be found on our restaurants and nightlife page.

Onsens – The essence of Japanese alpine culture is unquestionably the volcanic hot springs known as onsens. Fortunately, Hakuba House has 2 excellent traditional onsens on either side – on the lower side is a traditional Japanese public onsen (600yen) and on the upper side is the only private onsen in Hakuba (2800yen/hour, up to 4 people, perfect for a group of friends or for a romantic private bath with a loved one).

Hakuba Resort Shuttle Buses – Hakuba House is connected with the rest of the Hakuba Valley by shuttle bus. The shuttle bus stop is right next door and connects you to all other ski resorts in the Hakuba valley as well as restaurants and bars outside of Wadano.
