You will find everything you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Here, there is an entertainment centre second to none, loaded with the latest movies and TV shows — or bring your own and watch them on the region-free DVD player. Needless to say, the cottage is also fully wired with broadband internet and WiFi.
Powerful fan-assisted heating and an underfloor heated area in the living room keep you toasty warm.
The dining room leading off the main lounge is a cosy space for eating-in. The large table seats six comfortably.
The kitchen features a massive fridge/freezer with built-in ice maker and plenty of storage space. There is a gas hob set into the countertop. You will also find every appliance you'll need.
Also downstairs is a fully-tiled wet room with a deep bath and powerful shower, a vanity room, and a separate toilet. The bathroom, with its built-in air heating system, can even double as a drying room for your damp ski wear after a day on the slopes. There is a separate toilet, and also laundry facilities.
The cottage has three double bedrooms upstairs.
There is a comfortable king size bed. Crisp linens compliment the tasteful decor, which retains the original exposed posts in Japanese style. There are great views of the forest through the large windows wrapping around two sides of the room.
Located at the front of the house, this room has a queen bed that can be split into two singles for maximum flexibility.

Free shuttle buses to all of the main resorts in the area pick up close to the house — just 20 meters away and 200 meters away. From there you can take buses to Hakuba Goryu (both Escal Plaza and Iimori rest houses), Hakuba 47, Happo-one, and Iwatake resorts — giving you great flexibility to explore all of what Hakuba has to offer.
In the late afternoons and evenings, there's also the Genki-Go shuttle bus, which has routes all around town — convenient for visiting the supermarket or bars and restaurants in other areas.
There are two onsen (Japanese hot springs) in hotels within a couple of minutes walk of the cottage. A great way to relax after a day on the slopes, and just a short stroll home afterwards.
