Living and Lounge
The Living area is located on the ground floor and comprises an open plan living area with a modern open kitchen. Adjoining the open plan kitchen there is ten seater dining table made of reclaimed timber where families can meet and mingle and compare the days adventures. Next to the kitchen there is a lounge area, bookshelf library with built in sofas with comfy 5 inch cushions for kicking back enjoying a glass of wine or reading a book. Just behind the entrance is a TV area with a large wireless enabled TV.
The traditional stone heated onsen bath is great for winding down and relaxing those aching muscles after a day on the slopes. It is also great for families and hosing the kids down after a hard day on the slopes!
Memories are what make ski holidays so special and this room has been designed with a sense of fun to create lasting memories for you and your kids. The Bunker comprises 6 full sized bunk beds crafted from reclaimed timber, with individual reading lights and iPod recharging stations. The Bunker includes a games area with a large wireless internet enabled TV, bean bags for chilling out and playing an assortment of games and DVDs. But don't worry if you are a big kid at heart, the bunk beds are full sized singles with thick comfortable mattresses.TripAdvisor property ID 3196419...Read more

The decor of this lodge was homely and modern. It can easily fit in 3 families without feeling cramped. The open kitchen and lounge were spacious and cozy for gathering. The owner had paid attention to details and was very thoughtful, e.g. manual of the lodge was clear, a self-made mini "lonely planet" for Hirafu, boardgames and books for entertainments, wifi was working well.
The free shuttle bus stop to gondola was 15m away from the lodge which was difficult to beat.
Located in the middle of Hirafu village, a lot of the good restaurants and bars were within short walk, which was perfect after a whole day of skiing.
I am glad we chose to stay in this lodge instead of hotel for this ski trip!
