Travellers' Choice
Wadano Forest Hotel is located in Happo One, the largest and most popular ski resort in Hakuba. The hotel has great mountain and valley views and is very close to the Sakka ski slope. Intermediate skiers can also enjoy ski in and ski out access. Facilities include male and female onsens, a restaurant serving complimentary breakfast, free broadband internet, a bar, and dry room.

We offer the convenience of western sized hotel rooms, including large bathrooms, combined with great hospitality and service.

The hosts were unbelievable, the most accommodating and generous service received in our stay in Japan. The hosts provided excellent assistance with transport to and from the ski slopes, local knowledge with bus times and some excellent recommendations for dinner. This was a family friendly hotel great for families, couples and groups. Highly recommend this hotel.

All I can say is wow. We arrived at 3am and our hosts made sure everything was easy and ready for our arrival, being a group of 8 we imagined it would be difficult. However Sue, Casey, Cristina, Ivan and Joanie always went out of their way to make our stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. The rooms are huge by Japanese standards, the entire hotel was clean and easygoing. The Onsen’s were beautiful and the staff made sure all our needs were met. I have stayed in many hotels around the world and this is by far the best experience yet. The hotels location is perfect for easy access to the slopes. Thank you to everyone at Wadano Forest Hotel. You truly have given us a holiday of a lifetime. 10/10 would recommend.

Our hosts 6gave us a wonderfully. warm and friendly welcome. The rooms were clean and spacious with very comfortable beds. The hotel is in a great location and is within walking distance of some ski fields restaurants. The staff went out of thier way to provide information and energetic KC was always on hand for pickup and drop off. The separate Onsens were a luxurious bonus after a day on the ski field
