Apartments / Self Catering
Not too many condominiums available in Hakuba but plenty of rental cottages and apartments. Here you can expect all mod cons with bedding and cooking requirements. Make sure when you book you check any hidden costs such as bedding, towels etc. Some apartments are located in the accommodation areas but others can be further afield, and without transport can be very inconvenient. Great for families who want a little privacy on their vacation.See our "Accommodation Search" for more.
Minshuku are similar but more modest affairs, usually lower in price and without the attentive service. Generally though, you will have to put out your own bedding and tidy it away in the morning. Because some minshuku are no more than a family home run as a guesthouse on the side, you should expect to respect relatively early curfews and make certain common-sense allowances. But in return you will be rewarded with the personal kindness of your hosts. See our "Accommodation Search" for more.
