Nestled in Nagano Prefecture’s Northern Alps, Hakuba is perhaps Japan’s most-famous and most-enjoyed skiing destination. At one time also the country’s largest ski resort, Habuka hosted many of the Nagano Winter Olympics skiing events – you can still enjoy the 1998 Olympic facilities today. And as with other ski resorts in the Alps, Hakuba is also a popular summer destination for hiking, mountain biking, and for the year-round pleasure of soaking in an open-air hot spring.
As one of Japan’s most popular domestic destinations, Hakuba offers a wealth of lodging options to visitors, from private cottages and B&Bs to well-known domestic chains and luxury all-inclusive resorts – you cannot go wrong with any of these choices. However, we suggest trying a local ryokan or inn, not only to experience some uniquely Japanese hospitality, but also to enjoy the exceptional local gourmet dining routinely offered by these facilities. And like in other Nagano resort towns, many Hakuba hotels have onsen / hot springs available to guests. Make sure to check with Expedia on your preferred hotel’s onsen options.
Hakuba is a true year-round destination, with a myriad of activities to do and sites to see outside of the winter months – but at its heart, Hakuba is a ski resort. The Nagano Olympics’ Snow Park is a wonder to behold, and the 3000 meter slopes which tower above Happo One Ski Resort are breathtaking. Hakuba slopes range in difficulty from training courses for new learners to advanced slopes for experienced downhill skiers. The ski resorts here pride themselves on providing a family-friendly atmosphere that fosters love of skiing among all ages and skill levels.
Whether traveling with your family or visiting with a friend, Hakuba has an outdoor activity for you – during any season and at any budget level. Look to Expedia for the best rates and availabilities on Hakuba hotels and other Nagano accommodations!
