Japan is known for its wonderful hospitality and Gakuta Villas really delivers. We had a fantastic stay in a clean, comfortable, spacious and well situated villa. The shuttle service was excellent and made everything so easy and efficient. We skied for two days of a three night stay and our driver took us to all the right places and made... More

Stylish modern well-appointed spacious villas in a good location. Staff were very helpful and provided shuttle transport (limited to one trip per day). Ski shuttle stop is at the villas. Easy walk to Rhythm Sports for hire,etc, and more shuttle options from there. Also easy walk to Mominoki Hotel which has a publicly accessible outdoor Onsen. A great choice.

I stayed at Gakuto Villa with three of my friends in Feb 2015. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The house is, firstly, beautiful, it's well kept, very tidy, clean, great heating system, decent location (walkable to the lifts if you want to; about 7 mins in boots, but still walkable nonetheless), and has a good foyer landing area that allows...

We stayed here for 6 nights to go skiing at Hakuba Happo Ono ski fields and it was a great choice. We are a family of 5 and the two bedroom villa was perfect. It was warm (underfloor heating all throughout), modern and cosy with a lovely outlook from the lounge area and master bedroom downstairs. We were a little... More

We stayed here with our 2 kids (8&10) and can highly recommend it! Beautiful villa with lots of fresh snow to play in just outside our door. The wet room in the bathroom is just amazing! Lovely, friendly staff who were so helpful making reservations for dinner and taking us to The Big to stock up on groceries. The kitchen... More

The lady who is the manger of the property is outstanding. My husband, unfortunately, hurt himselfskiing on the first day, but the staff were very helpful and willing to... More

We loved our 5-night stay. Family with 2 girls 19 and 14. Modern Scandinavian styling; tiled bathrooms; huge bedrooms; stunning private views out over the snow to the trees from floor to ceiling windows in bedrooms and lounge. The windows can be left uncovered as there are no overlooking buildings. The kitchen was adequate for basic meals. Good washing machine... More

Gakuto Villas were a perfect place to stay for our family of 4. The kitchen and bathrooms functioned well with two teenage boys and whilst there was no specific drying the room, the main bathroom doubled as a drying room. The view from every window was spectacular and the bus stop at the front of the villas made access to... More

Excellent place to stay, cozy and clean, plenty of space for 6 of us. Friendly and helpful staff, especially Yuki who can speak fluent English and help contact Happo-one while one of us lost his wallet on the slope and luckily he got the wallet back! Thanks to her! The location of the house is a bit far from main... More

January 2015, family with two boys 18 and 16, perfect location for restaurants and the slopes and the staff could not have been more helpful. Stunning Villas, nice and warm, if you can get Villa 12 its the best, right at the end of the property nestled in the trees.
