Located in the middle of the Upper Hirafu village, Lodge Koropokkuru is a 10 min walk from the Hirafu Welcome Centre. We stayed in a triple sharing futon room with Ensuite bathroom. There are some rooms with normal beds and communal showers and toilets. So you've gotta request for the one u want. The futons are comfy and the blankets... More

Recently stayed at the lodge and it was fantastic!! Its obviously a very family orientated business and you instantly feel welcome when you walk through the door. Breakfast was great which was coffee, juice, toast, assorted pastries, scrambled eggs, wedges and traditional Japanese elements and the rooms were well set out. I stayed with two friends on a ski trip... More

The lodge is pretty awesome, it had public baths which are soooo nice to relax in after a day on the slopes. and there are coin operated foot/leg massage machines. There are also vending machines, a laundry, a wet room to store your boards and it includes... More

The facilities are extremely clean. The breakfast is ok with both Japanese and Western choices. We stayed three weeks in the lodge and we had a... More

I booked through booking.com 6 months ago for one person in a Japanese tatami room and they give the latest date for calculation/changes. When I arrived I was told 'sorry, I didn't realise your booking was for one person until too late. I always email and tell solo travellers to cancel with booking.com and book directly with us for the... More

This is a youth hostel type place. Great value for money. There are western style and Japanese style rooms. Really nice onsen to use after skiing all day. Very nice location, can pretty much ski home. Outdated place but lots of fun
