    I stayed here with my family and enjoyed it very much. Overall excellent. Some points: - The villa was very warm with good floor heating, we were never cold - There were two comfortable bedrooms (one one each floor). One had a king bed, the other two singles. There is an extra bed in the closet, so you can sleep... More

    Our family of 4 (2 kids, 13 and 12 years old) loved staying in Gakuto Villas at Chinese New Year 2015. Very convenient - every night we walked to local restaurants - great variety within 10 minute walk. Only 10 min walk to slopes. We usually had morning pick up around 9-9:15 which was easy (for Evergreen or Hakuba Snow... More

    Located in picturesque Wadano, Gakuto Villas were pretty much perfect. The villas are modern, with excellent underfloor heating, and comfortably furnished. The small kitchen is basic, but adequate. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. My only criticism would be the lack of a dedicated drying room. There's plenty of dedicated storage space for skis etc in the foyer, but that... More

    Everything you need on a ski break .. Highly recommended! The location and service are excellent and quite a picturesque setting. Close to the slopes and amenities and in the old Olympic Village. Also has a good pickup service to and from the bus stop.

    Nicely designed, sleek modern Japanese cottages. Really comfortable and excellently appointed. Wifi, Skype phones, heated floors, cool bathrooms, nicely equipped kitchen (for breakfast cooking, at least) and really nice Scandanavian/Japanese feel to the place. Hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings. Views are not so great (unless you like rusty tractors), but a nice setting in the woods with the noise of the... More

    The two storey villa suited our family (2 adults and 2 boys) perfectly. Everything was new, clean and well-presented. The villas are located in the Wadano area, about a 5 minute drive from the Hakuba train station and a similar distance to the Happo area and ski gondola etc. Our host, Yokokawa-san, was amazing.
