Kinta is amazing. We have been twice and both types were fantastic. Great snow, lodge is easy walk to slopes, room is spacious with views, spotless and beautifully furnished. Owners are delightful and do everything they can to help you and make you feel at home. The food they serve up is sensational -4 course meals which were delicious. Lovely indoor/ outdoor onsen overlooking the slopes. This is a high quality lodge and is a very relaxing and enjoyable place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone and both times we went we were so impressed with everything. Loved it!

My friends and I have just returned from our Japanese ski holiday and I just wanted to let you know that we had an amazing time and also wanted to thank you for all the organisation you did for us before hand. Our stays at all of the lodges were fantastic. We were overly impressed by the hospitality, the accommodation and helpfulness of Kinta san at Kinta Naeba and the food they cooked for the evening meals was also amazing. Thanks again for everything you did to help us have a relaxing holiday.

Mt. Naeba is home to two separate resorts which are the Naeba Resort and the Kagura Resort. These two resorts are linked by Japan’s longest gondola called Dragondola. Naeba Prince Hotel is a perfect family friendly hotel. It is ski in ski out and there are many kids snow activities. For powder skiers & snowboarders, Kagura area would be more fun. There is a CAT tour available in Naeba for advanced skiers and snowboarders.
