The team at Wadano Forest Hotel are the most accommodating and lovely bunch I’ve stayed with in a long time. Joanie, Raymond, Sai, Leah, Jamie and the rest of the lovely staff made sure that my group of friends enjoyed our stay. The rooms were, without exception, lovely and well-equipped, and we enjoyed the onsen every night after a long day of skiing.

Transportation to the slopes was made super easy via private drop-off to Happo-one, or shuttle buses from a bus stop just 2 minutes away. Our highlight was definitely the hotel’s restaurant, whose resident chef, Sai, cooked the most delicious home-y breakfasts and dinners for her guests. If you’re lucky you might even be able to request a dinner meal! There’s also a cosy small bar tucked away next door to hang out after dinner.

Wadano Forest Hotel is simple, but just perfect. My friends and I had the most unforgettable time!

Visited Wadano forest hotel with a family of 4 and it was amazing! Very good service and wonderful and lovely staff!!! . We were very sad to leave!!! Breakfast was lovely, the cooks are very nice! The hotel is not far from the slopes and there is very easy access to busses into the main village! Definitely recommend!!

The location of this hotel is great, with a short walk down the hill to Sakka quad lift. Lots of restaurants and food trucks close by including pizza delivery straight to your room on those nights you need to rest. We booked the family room which accommodated 2 adults and 2 children comfortably. The room contained 1 king size bed and 2 singles and were amazingly comfortable compared to standard Japanese bedding which is futon style. Rooms were warm and reasonably spacious - noting that we rarely spent anytime in them! Breakfast was included daily and although I personally skipped breakky, my husband and 2 children returned to the room each morning satisfied. Complimentary access to 2 washing machines and 2 dryers was an absolute bonus, although I recommend you do your laundry before 3.30pm as the machines are in demand. To save on energy we dried our clothes overnight on the coat hangers provided in the room. No problem in having dry warm clothing by the morning. The team at the hotel - Joanie, Raymond, Jamie & Mayumi did everything above and beyond to assist with restaurant and tour bookings. Transport to ski lifts on Happo One and local restaurants was managed through a front desk booking system and this was well organised and reliable. They even assisted us with a visit to the supermarket which was extremely accommodating. The hotel had a male and female Onsen for hotel guests and this was a particular highlight after a big day on the mountain. We can't fault this hotel. We will be back and already counting the days until our return.
A big thanks to the staff who helped to make our holiday in the snow extremely memorable.

We had a great 10 day ski holiday at Wadano. The apartment was very clean, modern and well appointed. The small kitchen was sufficient to cook for 6 people. Joanne and Raymond were extremely helpful, driving us to the ski lift or bus station daily so we could experience all of the Hakuba Valley resorts.

We had a great stay at Wadano. Joanie and her team couldn't have been more helpful. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the Sakka lift. Rooms are clean, breakfast was nice. We used the onsen every night.
