Great resort, abundant lifts, amazing views. Food options in cafeteria were a plenty and the cost was very reasonable to value for money. The only dislike was having to leave in the afternoons.

We went to Japan skiing for the first time this year. There is quite a variety of lifts, gondolas etc. The Hakuba village does have a shuttle which is convenient most of the times but if you have just missed one you can have quite a wait. There are skiing and boarding lessons available also.

Had the best time skiing in Hakuba, never seen as much snow in my life. Went to Hakuba47 and connecting mountain. Never had to wait for a line and the terrain was awesome!!! In the town itself there are plenty of bars and restaurants and is easily accessible. Thoroughly enjoyed myself, as did my partner... look forward to coming back... More

I will be back for sure. Reliable snow, good weather, cheap and delicious food options, and plenty of lifts. I found the mountain really easy to navigate and a good mix of terrain. Highly recommended.

Not aging gracefully, the village needs a serious capital injection. The people however are filled with warmth and friendliness.

The last day we skied it snowed so heavily which made leaving so hard for us! During our week there we skied Happo-One,... More
