ABOUT Hakuba


The Hakuba Valley in the Nagano prefecture is home to 10 ski resorts accessible on the one lift pass, giving you endless terrain to explore. Hakuba has become one of the most popular ski destinations in Japan for a number of reasons, including its varied terrain, extensive dining options, vibrant nightlife and epic day tour options. Hakuba is easily accessible too, located less than four hours from Tokyo airport on the famous Shinkansen Bullet Train or slightly longer with a direct coach transfer. And, if you need anything during your stay we have an office in Happo Village to assist you.
