Bears Den - Mountain Lodge Hakuba

Private Lodging | Ski to Door.

This spacious Western-style private lodge offers all the comforts of home for your ‘place to stay’ in Japan. Guests dig our open fire place, outdoor hot tub, bar and dining room; while staying in our friendly, relaxed and beautiful forest setting. All guest rooms have large private en-suites and king size beds.

We love living in Hakuba and travelling Japan! We get that it’s an amazing place to visit, even without the mountains! The diverse culture, incredible architecture, quirkiness, breathtaking scenery and of course the Japanese cuisine offers more than you can do in one visit.

Hakuba offers endless terrain of jagged peaks, epic amounts of snow, plenty of sunny days, long seasons and few people! We hope we can share our local knowledge, good times, and your best mountain story ever.
