My partner and I stayed at Eternal Flame for our first time in Hakuba. Kimi and Nao provide the best hospitality you could ask for, they truly made the stay so comfortable and we were so blown away by their kindliness. Firstly they would pick you directly from the station and also take you back when you leave. The lodge... More

This was our first trip to Japan. Before we went I had read all about how hospitable Japanese people are, but I was still blown away by the service at Eternal Flame. The hosts are amazing at their job and create a wonderful atmosphere. You feel comfortable, like you're at home, but far more elegant and luxurious! We visited as... More

After hearing my partner sing praises of Nao and Kimi's hospitality at Eternal Flame over his last three stays, I had to see it for myself (this was my partner's 4th stay at Eternal Flame). The rooms are simple but comfortable, with a very good common room and WiFi, and the breakfasts every morning were delicious and filling! Nao and... More

This very comfortable and amazing value pensione is well located near Ecoland near a good choice of restaurants and bars. For Japan the rooms are a reasonable size and although basic are quite comfortable either with ensuite or shared facilities. The common areas are nicely appointed, very relaxing and cosy, with free tea, coffee and internet available. Our hosts Kimmy... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Eternal Flame when skiing at Hakuba in January 2013. This was our second ski holiday in Hakuba, first time at the Eternal Flame and what a hidden gem. Hosts Kimi and Nao both went the extra mile to ensure our stay was special. Kimi is an excellent chef not only did we have... More

Great place to kick back with fantastic hosts who speak good english and will go that extra mile to look after you. Exellent breakfast every morning and great entertainment in evenings. Homely feel and, althoug most rooms have shared bath, the baths are great for a soak after a day in the snow

It is our 3rd snow holiday in Hakuba and we stayed at Eternal Flame for at least 5 days each trip here, each time with more friends and we all love the place and hospitality.

We've lived in Japan on and off for over 13 years and stayed in every type of accommodation. Seen it all good and bad. Eternal Flame where we stayed in early Jan 2011 with Nao and Kimi is No. 1 for our family with 2 teenage daughters.

Despite being in Tokyo during the 9.0 earthquake of 3/11, we braved the trip to Nagano, then to Hakuba, WITHOUT REGRETS. We had the best time!!! Nao& Kimi with Kari's help were the best host. They were quick to reposnd when we rang the bell for assistance. They gave great recommendations on restaurants, ski slopes, onsens, gear rentals, etc. Kimi... More
