Great atmosphere, nice host!”

Gaspard was a very nice and warm host and I enjoyed staying there very much. As he is a snowboarder himself, he gave me plenty of useful information about equipment rental, shuttle bus schedule and ski fields. The house is on the hill, a bit away from downtown but I enjoyed the tranquility. Gaspard offered transport from the house to Happo One and stations of shuttle buses to other ski fields, so it was not a problem to go around. With the well-equipped kitchen, you can enjoy your ski/snowboard holiday with a pretty low price. It is a shelter for bohemians indeed. I'd like to come back next winter and spend more time there.

Great Place & Best Staff”

Pros: - The staff here is really nice. Gaspard who is the owner of the house is a man with service at heart. He will arrange things for you if you ask for. - The environment in the house really make people know and talk to each other. It’s a great place to learn from different culture Cons: - It’s a bit far from the Hakuba Happo center but the staff will arrange shuttle service to make you most comfortable as possible.

This was a great place to stay. The house was clean and welcoming. Dinner was provided every night for 900 yen, which is cheaper than almost all the restaurants in town. It is located about a ten minute drive from town, but the shuttle service is great. The staff runs a few shuttles in the morning and afternoons for good transport to the mountains. In addition, if you want to go to town at any other time they offer rides for just 300 yen one way and 500 round trip. The staff is very knowledgeable about the mountains and surrounding area. Highly recommend staying here!
