My place sleeps up to five people. A cottage with all the modern comforts of home so why not make your stay a home away from home? A fourwheel drive station wagon with ski racks and studless snow tires will give you the freedom of movement within Hakuba environs. Ski fields are about ten minutes away. It's possible to walk across the river to 47.
A digital kerosene stove plus an overhead fan provide heating for those cold nights.
There are free wifi and Netflix for your entertainment.

Mei! Thanks for being such great guests. You were a pleasure to host and we look forward to your return. I’m sure the fox, rabbits and the Kamoshika are also thinking the same. You can stay in touch with Hakuba via epicstaysjapan. Have a great year and stay awesome!
