People care more about skiing when it comes to hotels in Hakuba, but this region is also known for the sunny fun times hiking (and other activities) in the summers!

Location & Transportation:

In my case, our family (of 3) reserved two nights with this hotel in mid-late June. Being a ski megapolis in Japan, Hakuba is not known for great transportation in summertime, so there is not much we can do when it comes to transportation into and out of the hotel, especially during low-seasons like this. Fortunately, the hotel offers shuttle service and it's pretty close to important places.

Not to mention, you can actually see the ski jump stadium used in Winter Olympics 1998 right from the hotel! I don't know if you can actually use those awesome stadiums, but they make a nice landmark as the two jump ramps are bright green and marked with big white "HAKUBA NAGANO", making your most memorable photo spots just a few steps outside the hotel.

When it comes to dinnertime, Echoland which is a big community street is pretty far, but the hotel manager offered to personally drive us there and pick us back up again. He's pretty kind and can even offer help on selection of restaurants.

Food Services:

The manager prepared a selection of breakfast eggs, sausages, and bread. On the check-out morning, the owner came in and comped some cherries too. The fruits for the mornings included melons, which were pretty juicy and sweet. A coffee machine is available in the dining hall.

Dinners can be served by chefs, but we did not have any dinner with the hotel's canteen.

Rooms and amenities:

We stayed in a Japanese style room. This is not a Ryokan, so we had to serve ourselves the bedding. The room has en-suite bathroom, TV, yukata (nightgowns, sleepwear, loungewear, etc.), tea set, plenty of AC sockets, and everything necessary to take a bath. The room was very clean.

In this hotel, you may wear yukata anywhere inside. (Some hotels prohibit leaving the room or floor in yukata.) Larger people may want to request large-sized yukata.

Hotel Facilities:

The hotel has vending machines (one for soft drink, one for beer), Japanese bathroom (ofuro, also popularly called onsen) with sauna, game and business rooms (closed in summer?), ski fitting rooms (obviously closed in summer!), free water, souvenir corner, and we were permitted to eat food from the convenience store in the dining room.

Go Hiking:

We went hiking. A gondola and two quad lifts are used in summertime to climb Mt. Happo. The full set of lift tickets for adults can be bought for 2900 yen, tax included. The manager offered to drive us there, but we decided to walk as it's only one kilometer away. I'll write further details and reviews of the mountain in a separate review.

Room Tip: There's a Japanese-style room with great view of Olympics Ramps.

We booked a triple room for our 3 night stay and found the room to be quite spacious. The bathroom is very small however. The view from our room is right onto the ski jumps so that was quite a thrill. The restaurant staff are very welcoming. The manager did help us with ski gear hire and organised a ski lesson for us which was very welcomed as English isn't very available. The hotel also picked us up and dropped us at the train station which was great as the hotel is a little way out from the main village.

Stayed 4 nights in Yamano Hotel in March. Our room was big and clean but very unmodern and worn out, for example there was stains on the walls, curtains and fabrics. Beds were a good size and comfortable. The bathroom had a deep bathtub and a good shower but only the bare minimum of toiletries i.e. soap and shampoo. The biggest disappointment was that there was no Japanese toilet, I love coming to Japan just for this. Breakfast was included but this too was pretty average. The staff and owners were friendly and helpful but I didn't experience any extra warmth and welcomeness as expressed in some of the reviews here. Most of the information we had to ask for and find out for ourselves. Hotel is in an ok location, with shoes on its walking distance to town and shops but with ski boots it’s another story so the best thing is to use the free shuttle bus or organise drop off with the hotel.

We rented skis and all gear from Spicy ski rental through the hotel and it was not good, the boots were very ill fitted and the pain they caused stopped both of us from skiing the last day.

As it was my first time skiing I had ski lessons with Evergreen, also booked through the hotel and again, not a very good experience. They pick you up at 9am but the lessons didn't start until 10.30am. Not much of the stated time of the lesson (morning lesson 10.30am-1pm) is actually spent skiing and this in spite of us being a very small group, a lot of the time is unfortunately spent waiting on things.

We also went to see the Snow monkeys which was a great experience. We organised this on our own with the help from the Information centre by the bus station in Hakuba town. It’s very easy and doesn't cost half as much as an organised tour and it also allows you to do things in your own time.

A big credit to the hotels flexibility, as the pain of the ski boots and the weather prevented us from skiing we cut our stay short by one day and the owners very kindly didn't charge us for this night. I'm not sure if this is standard or not but we very much appreciated this. Overall though, unfortunately I can’t say I was too impressed with this hotel, although it might be a good budget alternative for the less fussy ones.

Unique Japan Tours booked us here for five nights and we were so grateful. The rooms were fine (our friends jagged the better room but ours was still good and we were only there for snow boarding anyway) but the location, food and the service were the stand out. Nothing was too difficult for the hotel managers and I'm sure we tested them on a few occasions :) oh and the restaurant staff were adorable too. Loved this place, highly recommended for a more intimate hotel experience.
