This is a super choice for a ski holiday base in Hakuba. Well appointed comfortable room with en-suite and break fast included. Lovely hosts Mayumi and Vaughan made me feel very much at home and made sure I had everything I needed. Warm boot room, what a joy. Great quality and value.

I have stayed in Hukuba a few times before at many different hotels\inns. By far this was the best place I have ever stayed in and I have been to many different cities and places to compare. Once arriving there mayumi had been waiting for us and gave me and my mate a very warm welcome. Once arriving at snowbird...

Vaughan and Mayumi are the best hosts in Hakuba. They are friendly, generous and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable, large and clean. Vaughan's cooking is all class and he goes out of his way to cater for all tastes. The pension is very well located in the snow area and is only a 10 minute walk to the ski lifts...

We stayed at Snowbird for 6 nights at the end of January into February 2017 and we cannot recommend this place enough.

They were friendly and welcoming and made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Perfect location, great food...

Our family of six stayed with Vaughan, Mayumi and Shuma at Snowbird for a week at the tail end of the 2016 season (unfortunately the worst snow season in the Hakuba valley for 10 years). In spite of the limited snow options I cannot recommend this Pension highly enough. The hosts treated us like family members from the moment we...

We stayed at snowbird in Feb 2016 for 10 nights, what an amazing holiday :) snowbird is a welcoming, cosy, home away from home. The house is in a perfect location, 50m from a bus stop and within walking distance to the bars, food, ski field and main buses. We stayed in a western style room that was very spacious,...

Awesome guesthouse, with hosts who go above and beyond to accommodate you! The house itself is really nice and the rooms offer a good amount of space, including a room for everyone to keep their snow gear. Hakubagoryu is a 10 minute walk and getting to other areas of Hakuba is easily done by catching one of the local buses.

We visited Hakuba in late December 2015 - early January 2016 and stayed with Vaughan and Mayumi for 4 nights in a Japanese-style room. The room was huge, and simply but attractively appointed. We loved it. Vaughan and Mayumi were extremely gracious hosts and, true to Japanese hospitality, made it seem like nothing was too much trouble for them; they...
