Excellent lodge. Very good facilities ranging from outdoor jacuzzi to large dining/common area. Everything you need and more for a snow trip. Excellent service with travel to and from the ski resorts. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Lesley and Rob were always happy to provide advice on where the best snow would be, and they were always correct. Cooked breakfast, amazingly large, spacious and comfortable rooms. Snow runs will now... More

We are so wrapped with our first ever health retreat in Japan held at The Bears Den chalet, in Hakuba. The facility itself lends to group experiences that encourage contemplative practice. It's proximity to nature and hiking made it a true immersion in the elements, with accessible walks and hikes literally on the doorstep for every fitness level. The open... More

The Bears Den to us is THE perfect place to stay for an awesome ski trip in Japan. It was actually our 4th trip there and we will certainly keep returning. We travel to ski areas around the world every northern winter and find that Hakuba is always reliable for snow quality short lift lines and one of the cheapest... More
