We stayed for almost a week at the amazing Hakuba Powder Mountain Lodge.
I wish it had been longer!
We were a group of two families with two adults and three kids.
There are three bedrooms and everyone had enough room.
The apartments are newly renovated and spotless – you will find everything you need, and the design of the apartment is lovely with lots of wood and that beautiful minimalistic yet so functional Japanese style.
The kitchen is well equipped and we were easily able to cook breakfasts and dinners for the hungry kids.
There is a central living/eating area where everyone can hang out together, but space in the bedrooms that adults and teenagers can chill out there too if they need some me time!
There is a room in the basement where you leave your ski gear, and a modern laundry/washing machine with inbuilt dryer for guests to use.
The location is amazing – Wadano is a lovely quiet pocket with mainly families staying there.
There are some little food trucks across the road and also some cafes and restaurants within walking distance.
The main Sakka quad is on your doorstep – you can ski to most parts of Happo from this starting point.
If you want to try one of the other starting lifts on Happo there is a shuttle bus that stops very close by at the base of the quad.
One of the highlights of the trip – in addition to the lovely apartment and the great location – was the amazing owner/host Taka.
He takes incredibly good care of his guests and it feels as if nothing is too much trouble.
Not only did he help us with transport for grocery shopping and to the snow on some days when we didn’t start at Sakka, but he helped me sort out an issue with my train t
ickets when I had made a mistake with my onward booking, which was above and beyond what he needed to do!
If you book Hakuba Powder Mountain, you can be sure that your apartment will be comfortable, the location is excellent, and you will be looked after very well by your host Taka – highly recommend it.
Thank you very much for sharing the details of your stay and your recommendations for enhancement.
It was a pleasure to have you staying with us and to make your stay so memorable.
We look forward to welcoming you back again next time!
