If you are looking for a smaller, modernized hotel with a Japanese feel, I would definitely recommend the Ridge. But please note that this is a limited service hotel (no room service, front desk is not manned 24 hours a day (though staff are readily accessible), no gym or onsen) and it is not ski-in and ski-out (the 200m walk...

Stayed at the Ridge for 9 nights with my family in January 2015 and was delighted with the choice. The location is first rate and the staff were friendly, knowledgeable & helpful at all times. The accommodation is at the top end for ski resorts and I highly recommend the Ridge & Hakuba to other family groups.

Stayed here with my 2 children aged 14 and 11. The rooms are very large for Japan and extremely clean. The hotel is right on the free shuttle bus route and across the road from the ski hire place so its extremely convenient. In fact you can walk to the ski lifts as its only 150m away from the hotel.... More

After 10 days at the Ridge - I can highly recommend the accommodation as a lovely boutique place to stay. The service was genuine, professional and personal. The local advice was honest and reliable. Position great, & the breaky consistently nourishing for big days skiing. After a day skiing it was such a welcoming place to come home too.

This place was recommended to me by American Express Centurion Travel Service. As an amateur skier, I told Amex I wanted a place that was conveniently close to the ski fields, clean, and had food available. My family and I (2 adults & 2 teenagers) stayed there in December 2014 and this place ticked all the boxes. Staff were very... More

We chose to stay here with our family from reviews I had read about the property and was not disappointed in any way. We stayed in the 2 BR mountain view apartment ( kids 13&15). It was our first time to Japan and all involved with our 10 day stay were friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is just beautiful.... More

We had a delightful stay at the Ridge in early January of this year. The hotel was lovely and quiet, with impeccable staff who were most helpful. The ridge is only a walk away from the chair lift, with a great little ski shop practically at your door step! The food at Antlers restaurant was amazing too, especially after a... More

This year is our second year staying at The Ridge and we find the accommodation very comfortable. We are a family of five and the three bedroom apartment is perfect. We walk each morning to the lifts at Kokusai straight out of the basement drying room. Yuri, one of the managers, is exceptionally helpful with local restaurant recommendations and bookings... More

This hotel is incredible. The service is perfect, everyone there knows us by name. the massage is incredible, Luke does something brilliant with oils. Luke, if you're there, you helped me get to sleep every time you massaged me. You're that good. Rachel is a great replacement for Brendan, the old Food and Beverage Manager, someone who we loved dearly.... More
