We just spent two weeks in the 3bdr penthouse and it was one of the best family vacations ever and a big part of it was how happy we were with this apartment. The layout was just perfect. The living room panoramic windows had unobstructed views of the mountains which turns into the ski slopes in winter and was told... More

We had a week staying in the 3 bedroom apartment. What a view from everywhere. Surrounded by glass and views of snow. It was a Christmas we won't forget. Had everything we needed including drying room. Very central to ski slopes and town

Stayed at Yama Shizen East through the end of February for 10 nights. Arrived early and they let us straight in the room, followed shortly after for a personal check in with Anderson (much nicer than having to stand in reception). He filled us in on where to go in town and where to eat. The apartment was modern and... More

It's actually a house that a friend bought. It was my first time staying in Yama Shizen. The service was extraordinary! The rooms are so clean and spacious! We had 8 people to stay in a penthouse room and it's def more than enough… I feel like it could possibly fit a double of us. I love the view, I... More

We stayed as a couple at Yama Shizen East. Lovely room and helpful hotel staff. Compared to some of the beds we slept in while travelling Japan I had a dream sleep in their super comfy beds :) Location is central to bars, restaurants and only a short walk from the Gondala. There is also a Equipment Valet service at... More

Stayed here for five nights beginning of March and had a wonderful stay. The apartment was a great size and very comfortable. Great location to the ski slopes, restaurants, shops and bars. Would definitely stay here again.

We are regular visitors to Hirafu for the winter season, this was our first time staying at any of the HT Holidays properties. Due to availability issues, we spent a few nights at one property (Youtei Tracks) then had to move to Yama Shizen East for the remainder of our stay (pre-arranged). The move of our luggage/belongings was handled by... More

Modern rooms and a good location, and short walk or ski from the gondola. Service was great. We had a lovely studio with lots of good natural light. Super clean, awesome to have access to a laundry right outside the door. Quiet at night. We had them put the twin beds together to make a king and it almost wasn't... More
