I have stayed in probably over 20 ryokans all over Japan, ranging from basic ones to pure luxury ones. Hifumi is probably somewhere in the middle, but I am giving this place 5 stars because of these reasons: 1. Great value for money. For the price you pay for this ryokan, you get a very decent room (I chose the... More

The service was above and beyond and the food was even better!! It was a fantastic Japanese experience, we would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone staying or visiting Hakuba. It is certainly a little gem with very personal service

We stayed at Hakuba Hifumi for 6 nights on our recent ski trip to Hakuba. It was our first trip to Japan and we wanted to experience a traditional Japanese ryokan, and Hakuba Hifumi is an exemplary display of true Japanese hospitality. The hotel/ryokan is spotless, simple and elegant in design. The host was so welcoming and obliging, we had... More

We stayed at this small, expertly-run ryokan in December 2014. The day we were due to travel to Hakuba from Matsumoto, we were met with snow storms, resulting in all trains being cancelled. So from Matsumoto, we took the train to Shinano-Omachi, and where we would have changed trains onwards to Hakuba, this was replaced by a bus. Travel time... More

This is our second stay in Hakuba Hifumi and both times, it has been fantastic! You name it - service, transportation, recommendations for restaurants, cleanliness, food and drinks, personal touch for the Murayama family, recovery of misplaced gloves, etc...they excelled at them. The rooms are very relaxing and always smells good, the futons and comforter - totally comfortable, and theres... More

I couldnt fault this place. The internal Onsen is spectacular. The food well prepared, fresh and tasty. The cleanliness of the room and the little special touch where they make up your bed at night, all made the experience memorable. Perfect central location only 10 minute walk to the nearest lifts. Complimentary pick up from the bus stop. Helped me... More

Our stay at the Hakuba Hifumi exceeded all expectations. We opted for a Japanese style room and while the room furnishing appeared sparse at first glance (as is the traditional style) everything was more than adequate. And the futons! So comfortable! We couldn't wait to climb into bed at the end of a long day skiing, soaking in the Onsen... More

A real treasure of an inn. ALL the staff were hospitable, the family, waitresses, cleaners. Spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. We thoroughly enjoyed the use of the family bath with our 4yr + 6 yr old. It was too hot for the kids to go into the onsen bath but they immensely enjoyed the shower part and pouring water over...

Could not recommend Hakuba Hifumi enough... We stayed in the beautiful Nagomi room which was really big for any hotel standard. The best service, food and location. Walking distance to Happo One and all the restaurants and bars. Tomohiko San even let us use his waxing iron to wax our boards and organised a courier for our bags to be... More

Hotel Hakuba Hifumi was a peaceful place to stay. The common area has been beautifully designed & decorated to give you a true sense of traditional Japanese spirit. We enjoyed a Japanese minimalist styled room with a floor seated lounge area that was turned into our sleeping quarters. I found it quite easy to sleep since I was exhausted from... More
