We had a wonderful stay at Gakuto Villas. The villa was impeccably clean and the beds were very comfortable (not generally the case in most ski chalets in Japan from previous experience). The location was fantastic, short walk to Rhythm and ski lifts and also close to some fantastic restaurants (i.e. Hummingbird). We loved the always helpful staff who were more than happy to help with dinner reservations, recommendations etc. I really don't have anything negative to say about the villas and am looking forward to the next visit!

We spent 6 nights here for a skiing holiday. The villas were very well presented and clean and tidy, with everything that you could need. They offer a free drop off service to the supermarket each afternoon. Ideally one option to do this a little bit later would have suited, as we had to leave the ski slopes early to be able to catch it. The staff were very helpful, and it’s a brilliant location, with the village shuttle stop directly out the front. We would definitely stay here again!

These villas suited our family of 5 perfectly. 1 bed room upstairs and one downstairs. 2 bathrooms with toilets and showers, 1 with bath. Fridge,freezer, toaster, kettle, rice cooker, washing machine and drying rack. (could dry in machine, but I didn't). Very warm underfloor heating. Skype phone with free local calls. Staff helpful with booking dinners. Villa shuttle service was very obliging - drop and pick up from dinner (until 8pm). Dropped us at ski slope on the first day when we missed the bus and were running late. Rescued me and kids when we got lost and ended up on a roadside a long walk from the lifts. Shuttle service to supermarket every evening. Can walk to Kokasai lift (where Evergreen international ski school is) in about 5min. Could also walk to Sakka lift - further but downhill on the way home. Snowball makers and sleds available to use for free. No onsen, but can walk 2min to Momoniki hotel and use theirs for 1000yen.

Gakuto villas are a short walk from Happo ski field and Sakko (beginners ski field), there are quite a few restaurants also in walking distance too. It is almost opposite Spicy's ski rental which is really handy. The 11 villas are spacious, open and warm. The even numbers look out onto the mountain and the odd numbers onto a car park. We had an odd number but didn't mind at all, as we could see the kids playing with the snow from our large lounge window. The staff are amazing. All speak great English (or are Aussie/English) and nothing is a problem for them. They will take you to the supermarket, restaurants, ski-field if you ask nicely, and one day even took us back to villas when we randomly bumped into a staff member in Echoland (thank you Jacob!). They will book things for you (Onsen, restaurants, buses), which makes the language barrier much easier to navigate. The villa has a washer/dryer and plenty of room for ski equipment. It is serviced every few days.

Can thoroughly recommend these villas for your family holiday. Everything is covered, even the washing machine/dryer. There’s your own drying room for ski gear. The bathrooms have what you need, hot, powerful showers and a bath. Plenty of room in the bathrooms as well. Large lounge and kitchen area. Clean, modern style. The staff are amazing, with information, arranging transportation, info on slopes, restaurants etc. All very well organised. Other major bonuses are the fact that the bus stop for virtually all the slopes is right outside your door. No walking in ski boots! Even if your choice is not on the list, it will be covered by the buses that go from Hotel Tokyo, just down the road. Having easy access to the slopes and great accommodation is awesome. Great time had by all.
