From the booking procedure, recommendations and final experience, ours was delightful at Gakuto Villas. But honestly, Tori was the star with Henry not far behind in the rating. This couple really go beyond to help you in achieving the best experience possible. We recently traveled with our 3 young children, and it was the perfect start to our Japanese 3...

Really nice villas - some of the reviews here have the issues highlighted - it's very modern so the stairs are a fall hazard for children (can be mitigated with baby gates they have), and the downstairs room is massive, but does get hot and has a small-ish bed. Not a game breaker though. The furnishings are really modern, there...

We stayed here in January for 9 nights, the villas are in a great location to the ski lifts (the staff will show you where the short cut is) and there are some nice restaurants nearby. The staff are great, very accommodating. The villas are very clean the only problem we had with them is that the upstairs room is...

We stayed at Gakuto for five nights and wish it could have been longer! The villa was very spacious and well-equipped for a family of six at the snow, even though it was only two bedrooms - we had an extra single bed in the kids' room, and a bed in the lounge. The whole place was extremely comfortable, and...

We joined a number of families for a 2 week stay in Hakuba in January '14. The spacious & tastefully designed villas in the lovely Wadano area gave us our privacy, whilst being well appointed to socialise with our friends. We were grateful that the Gakuto shuttle bus was always available to drop us to restaurants & the supermarket. The...

Our stay at Hakuba was very enjoyable, all thanks to the ever-helpful staff at Gakuto and the lovely villa. The villa had everything we needed and the under floor heating made the place so welcoming after our days in the snow.

Very nice modern double-storey house with good heating and amenities. Kitchen was well-equipped. However, its not very child-friendly as the staircase railings are only supported by cables. We had crawling babies and children, so we had to put our suitcases to block the kids from tumbling through the cables. Breakfast provided was so-so. One morning, there wasn't enough to eat...

“We had Villa02, which received a bit of noise on the Saturday night with revelling skiiers heading home - perhaps the higher numbers, off the street, would not suffer this. But I only mention it for people who would prefer absolute quiet - we loved being so close to the bus stop!”
