Upon our arrival to Hakuba Station, we were picked up by Kikhuo and take to Echoland which is the best area in Hakuba to stay if you want to be close to every mountain. The Lodge is only a 150m from the free shuttle bus stop which will pick you up and take you to the mountains. The rooms are...

Friend and i spend two weeks skiing in Hakuba, and we stayed the whole time in Side Hill. It was everything that we hoped for. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was different every morning, and delicious! In the bathroom my favorite place was the granite jet bath, it helped to recover from the day of skiing and hiking. Lounge area...

This was like staying in someone's house - several rooms a cosy lounge with a fire place and several bathrooms on the ground floor. This is a wonderful and interestingly different place to stay at - not like a normal hotel at all. A family run place they are very hospitable with the wife very shy and retiring. Food is...

On our recent visit to Hakuba, we were able to book in a 10 night stay at Side Hill. We opted for the tatami room and used the communal toilets, basin area and ofuros (which are close, clean and convenient; the toilets are state of the art!). This worked perfectly for us. Our room heater was toasty and our towels...

Kikuo picked us up from the Hakuba-Happo bus terminal in the freezing cold late on Friday night and immediately we knew we had picked the right place. We jumped into the car and Kikuo was already cracking jokes and making us feel welcome. We arrived at the hotel and Kikuo gave us a tour of the place which was quaint,...

This is my 2nd time at Sidehill and nothing has changed (please read my review from last year)! Still the best service I've ever had in the world! Kikuo will go out of his way to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. It feels like you're staying with friends! This year I decided to book a room WITHOUT an...

“The premier room looks great, wish we had it. The rooms with shared bathrooms are actually a bit bigger. If you upgrade to a private bathroom (not premier), then you actually dont get a couch....not good if you have big bags.”
