RESORT GUIDE

Ski Japan Holidays


WELCOME TO THE HAKUBA VALLEY Set high in the spectacular Japan Alps lays the alpine village of Hakuba. With peaks towering over 3000 metres, breathtaking scenery and long winters with abundant snowfalls, the transition from a small farming village to a world-class ski resort was almost inevitable. From the first official gathering of skiers who formed the Hosono ski club in 1928, Hakuba was immediately admired by the greatest skiers and alpinists, thus giving birth to the centerpiece of the Hakuba Valley, Happo-One Ski Resort. More than 90 years have passed and visitors continue to flock to the area to experience the high alpine skiing, soothing après-ski hot springs, great food, fascinating culture, and the unforgettable friendly smiles that have made the Hakuba Valley Japan's premier winter getaway.

JAPANESE SKIING AT ITS BEST As Japan's premier ski region, the Hakuba Valley offers more terrain, vertical rise and advanced ski slopes than anywhere in Japan. Having hosted the 1998 Winter Olympic Games and numerous FIS World Cup events, the Hakuba Valley has a well established international reputation as a world-class ski destination. From one end of the valley to the other and with 10 resorts accessing over 130 resort runs as well as providing access to incredible off-piste terrain of the Japan Alps, Hakuba's reputation as a serious skiers and snowboarders’ destination is well balanced across all levels. This combination of world-class skiing, abundant snowfalls, sunny skies and over ten ski resorts truly makes Hakuba Valley a precious gem among the rugged Japan Alps.

HAPPO

HAPPO NO YU

Hakuba has a plethora of rich natural spring water and there is no better way to relax and rejuvenate after a hard days skiing than to soothe your body in one of the many natural hot springs in the village. To get the most out of your onsen experience there are a couple of rules which need to be followed. 1. The bath is never used for washing, only soaking. Showering & washing are done before entering the bath. 2. Hotsprings are enjoyed naked & swim suits are not allowed inside the bath. 3. After soaking for a while get out of the bath and wash yourself again & then re-enter the bath. 4. After finishing soaking, let your body absorb the natural minerals for a few minutes before toweling yourself down to dry.

Please refer to the Hakuba Area Map for the location of hot springs.

東京TOKYO

JNTO

The capital of Japan and home to more than 12 million people, Tokyo is a mega metropolis with an amazing level of energy and excitement. Bustling streets and neon lights, a city of stark contrasts with high tech sophistication mixed in with a treasure trove of the past.

京都KYOTO

JNTO

Kyoto is known as the ancient capital of Japan and is recognized as being the epicenter of Japan's rich cultural history. Boasting some of the country's finest temples and most important cultural assets, Kyoto is a must see destination.
