    Gakuto is excellent!

    My first visit to Hakuba. Stayed for 6nights in mid-Feb. Great location, nestled in nature and quiet. Was about less than 5mins ride from Hakuba main station to the villa. Villa is modern, clean, cozy with beautiful view into the surrounding forest and spacious enough to fit 4-6 adults easily. Washer/dryer was available.

    Easy access to ski slopes via free shuttle bus or short walk to nearest ski lift. Bus stop is just few steps away from the guest house.

    Staffs were incredibly friendly and accommodating, special thanks for helping me to find and arrange for ski lesson even when it came last minute!

    There are some nice restaurants nearby (recommended by staff) and would advise to book in advance. Cooking was another option as kitchen was equipped to cook simple meals. Gakuto provides free shuttle to the grocery store.

    Overall was an enjoyable and pleasant stay. One small housekeeping improvement that I can suggest was replenishing coffee capsules in the villa as there aren’t many cafes nearby to get coffee in the morning.
