Hakuba is a large spread-out collection of accommodation, holiday homes and local houses. The main street starts at the Hakuba Base Camp bus terminal, with a number of restaurants, coffee shops, ski shops and ski hire along the road. It can get quite busy when the weather or snow on the mountains is not good, and you defiantly need to book a restaurant if you’re a group of more than three.
We stayed at Brownie Villas which is a group of small chalets. Ours was a 2 bedroom, it had the basics for cooking, a small lounge area and a loft. Each room had a wall heater, which at night can be a little noisy. The shuttle buses stops are at the end of the street, depending on which mountain you want to go to. They are quite frequent in the morning, less so in the early afternoons. When the pow pow is on, the buses are packed. My suggestion would be to hire your own transport, that way you can move around the different mountains when you want. The nearby supermarket is large and has everything you need.
Thanks again Hisae for arranging the accommodation.
has been perfect for us.
making our stay easy and "just like home"!
