We are dinner at the restaurant at this hotel while we were staying in Hakuba. The staff were very attentive and explained each course as it arrived. We ordered the most expensive set menu which included higher quality meat and fish such as wagyu shinshu beef. We enjoyed the meal which was the best meal we ate in Hakuba.

It felt like coming home and this was only our second stay here. We were travelling with friends who were staying for their fifth visit. At our first breakfast we saw a number of other people from our previous stay! Tomohiko and his wonderful family and team cohesively and seamlessly run a very tight ship. They work extremely hard to... More

This is simply a fantastic place to stay. The dinners were exquisite with the waitresses giving English explanations of how to eat each course. A few examples of the service- Running late via a bus connection our driver called ahead to the Hifumi, he then gave us his phone where the manager of the Hifumi wanted to know what we... More

My wife and I had a dream ski holiday staying at the Hifumi. Everything from the traditional meals, outdoor bath and indoor onsen, the service and hospitality was just superb. You can choose traditional japanese or western breakfast and they do a wonderful japanese evening meal. My wife is gluten intolerant - this was not a problem at all for... More

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

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!

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
