Absolutely loved this accommodation! Very pricey but you are paying for a short walk to Grand Hirafu. You can leave your skis and boots at the ski concierge at the ski lift which is a real bonus. You can shortcut through but looks like lots of building going on so would check how far to walk if new buildings are...

We had a wonderful stage at Yama Shizen and with HT Holidays. The accomodation was clean, spacious and modern. The staff were polite and helpful. The extra bonuses of the ski valet service offered by HT Holidays was great as even though it is only a short walk to the gondola it meant not carrying our skis up and down....

Spent 6 nights at Yama Shizen East apartments in a studio room. Room was a good size with limited kitchen facilities. Bathroom was spacious and the shower was great - loads of hot water all the time.
