HAKUBA TOKYU HOTEL
History & Story
The Hakuba Valley has grown step by step over the past century to develop into the 10 mountain winter resort that it is today. The jewel of Hakuba Valley, Happo One Resort, was formalised the same year that the Hakuba Tokyu Hotel was opened at its base, and the two have supported each other for 60 years running. The stylish Hotel became a popular setting for Japanese Ski films and housed the Japanese Royal Family twice. After all the nation-wide tourism Hakuba Tokyu has brought and continues to bring to Hakuba, the Hotel now maintains a powerful influx of international tourists during the winter season.
December 2018 saw the complete renewal of the upper two guest floors, designed by Aqua Design Amano.
December 2019 saw the renewal of the remaining floors as well as the Lodge Bar and the French restaurant Chamonix.
Date added extensions
In 1996 the original hotel was completely demolished and a bigger version with updated aesthetic was constructed for the Nagano Olympic Games in 1998, with extra spacious facilities.
Main Strengths, Special Touch
Our service is state of the art, with every bell man and woman trained in concierge capacity. Our dinner restaurants are distinctly themed with the Classical French Charmonix and the Traditional Japanese Manyo. An experience of a lifetime.
Set right on the border of the bustling Happo neighborhood and the calmer Wadano area, the Hakuba Tokyu Hotel enjoys the best of both worlds, with convenient access to shopping and night life, while staying hidden in a quiet forest on top of a hill. The closest Ski resort is just 400 metres (440 yards) away and for guests with access to cars, the wider village area hosts all sorts of activities.
Snow mobile, helicopter tours (drop off at the summit), traditional events like the Fire festival, tours to the famous Snow monkeys, back country, great après-ski experiences, vibrant night life and much more. Glass bead making, cooking classes, museums are also on the menu (available year round).
Mountain biking, rafting, hot air balloon tours, hiking tours, natural hot springs relaxation and many other sport related recreational activities. Star gazing, Sun rise events and much more are also a must.
