We stayed here for a few nights in February 2020, just before COVID19 cancelled everyone's travel plans. The rooms & facilities were warm, comfortable & inviting. The breakfast provided each morning was great, so many options & it was changed up a bit each day. We loved how close it was to the ski field & restaurants, everything within walking distance. However, the real stand out of our stay here was Kumiko & her staff. They were so kind & helpful when our friend injured himself skiing & had to cut his trip short. From offering a lift & help with their travel to providing them with a care package of snacks for their journey home. Even with the language barrier you could tell all Kumiko wanted to do was help as much as she could. New White Bear is nothing fancy, but it's clean & tidy, & you have everything you could need within walking distance. Everyone there will make you feel welcome & like you're right at home. Highly recommended staying here, just don't injure yourself skiing, but if you do Kumiko & her team are there to help.

This place is a great place to stay in Hirafu for a ski trip. We travelled from Milwaukee, USA to Hirafu as part of a spring break vacation. This place was cleaner than mist of the places we rented in Colorado. It is quiet, close to convenience store and all facilities. The owner is very very helpful and welcoming from all little things you might have forgotten to pack to bringing you to the train station. It is about 10 min walking with ski boot from the lift and my 2 boys did enjoy their stay. This is definitively a place I will rent again for my next trip to Hirafu.

The White Bear is a great place to stay in Hirafu!!! The rooms and facilities were clean and met our needs. The main common room provided a place to go after skiing and enjoy some family time. Breakfasts were excellent. The facility was close t excellent restaurants and bars as well as two convenience stores for getting our basic needs and beverages. The drying room and ski room provided excellent storage. We could access the family chair at the bottom of Hirafu to access the entire hill. We would highly recommend this lodging.

Arrived two days ago. Staying in a lofted room which means the beds are up a few stairs and the loft accommodates two single beds and two futons. Very comfortable for 2... You'd have to be on very good terms with your two other friends otherwise. Probably ideal for a couple with two kids too. Not a lot of storage. Again perfect for a couple. It's clean, comfortable, good breakfast, great and lovely hosts. It has great ski facilities with a ski room and a dry room. It is central and you have good access to great restaurants around including for breakfast if you want something else than what is on offer at the lodge. The bus to the gondola or ski fields stops 30m away from the front door. Excellent location for an excellent accommodation! Highly recommended!

Been back couple times, the accomodation is adequate, rooms what you would expect, ski room so so, brekkies good but best of all is the location. The shuttle is pretty empty when you get on and off and it's close to the centre
