Get away from it all at this private 7-bedroom self-catering lodge at Togari Onsen Resort. After hiking on the Shin-etsu Trail or cycling along the riverbank, relax with all your family and friends in the stylish kitchen/dining room. Hunters Gate is nestled in the heart of Japan’s Satoyama; Nozawa Onsen Village is just 15 minutes away and the world famous Snow Monkeys are within an hour’s drive. With 7 bedrooms and 2 large living spaces, up to 20 guests can comfortably spread out. Challenge one another to a game of table tennis and show off your musical talents on the piano and guitars in the huge recreation room. In our fully-equipped kitchen-dining room, it's easy to prepare meals while you talk with your friends across the bar. The lodge offers great value for large groups and is centrally located for year-round outdoor activities like hiking, cycling, paddling, as well as foraging and farm experiences. Come and meet our friendly baby goats. In winter we are ski-in/ski out too!

We visited Hunter's Gate back in February for a ski weekend with a large group of friends. The owners were extremely accommodating and attentive, from the moment we booked with them through our departure. The house is huge with ample space for our large group to spread out and was quite warm even in the winter. We loved the near ski in/ski out location - just a short walk and we were on the slopes, which was great with kids. It's a a fantastic family accommodation too. There's a big field right next to the house where our kids had a blast making snowmen and having snowball fights. If we're ever in the area again we'd love to stay here again for sure!

We visited recently with a small group of friends. The owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. The location is gorgeous and perfectly situated for mountain adventures in Togari and Nozawa Onsen. We were there in May, but the Togari ski area seems situated directly next to it. It had a very ski-in ski-out feel. The lodge itself is very spacious and contained baths that could accommodate both Western and Japanese travelers. I loved the copper bar in the dining area, as well as the adventure lodge motif. Thanks very much to the owners!

My wife and I (and a few friends) stayed here for our elopement/honeymoon, and I could not have asked for better accommodations. Absolutely lovely and spacious lodge located in a beautiful and quiet area. The rooms were clean and very comfortable, and the friendly hosts were more than accommodating and clearly take great care of the place. I loved the bar/dining room upstairs in particular. The lodge is conveniently located close to the ski area, and to great food and drinks nearby. It also provided numerous opportunities for fun activities and site seeing across the Iiyama area. Our stay was completely wonderful, I highly recommend them.

古い民宿を1年くらいかけてリフォームした素敵な民宿です。私は日帰りでしたが、他の人達は宿泊しました。お風呂も湯船以外にシャースペースが4か所ほど浴室に設けられていて、ささっと汗を流せそうです。宿の主人曰くまだまだリフォーム途中だそうですが、トイレもウォッシュレットに替えたり、和室を洋室に替えたりして(ベッドもクイーンサイズ!)、居心地の良い感じになっています。一通り案内してもらいましたが、30名くらいの収容ができそうなので、グリーンシーズンにもちょっとした合宿などで利用できそうです。
