MYOKO SKI LODGE
Less Groomed, More Backcountry
Powder to the People
Myoko Ski Lodge provides centrally located Myoko accommodation in Akakura Onsen ski village with easy access to the best Myoko ski resorts and some of the most reliable powder skiing in the world.
Start each day with a complimentary, western, continental, self serve breakfast in our spacious, valley view dining area overlooking the village.
Then it's just a 3 or 4 minute walk to either one of two ski resorts flanking the village. Families can walk 300m down hill to a chair lift at Akakura Onsen Ski Resort with English speaking ski schools and for the more advanced skier looking for bigger lines and great backcountry, it's just a 300m walk up the hill to the adjoining Akakura Kanko Ski Resort.
Or jump aboard our daily 4wd minivan excursions to explore more of the nine Myoko ski resorts and attractions within a 40 minute radius. Knowledge is powder and with a wide variety of terrain including Japans longest groomer, biggest inbounds freeride zone, deepest powder, amazing tree skiing and awesome Myoko backcountry, we know where the best conditions are forecast and plan your daily adventures accordingly, making Myoko Ski Lodge great value accommodation and our central Akakura Onsen location the best place to stay in Myoko.
After each epic day, carving your name on Mount Myoko, it's time to relax with a revitalising soak in one of our own, in-house, natural onsen baths which are direct fed from a volcanic hot spring.
Then socialise with a drink by the double sided, stone fire place, before strolling to dinner at a ramen bar or one of several other delicious, village restaurant options or choose to whip up something simple (or fancy) with your family and friends (old and new) in Myoko Ski Lodge's self catering communal kitchen.
After dinner, retreat to the cosy lounge to compare tales of the day's memorable experiences and share plans for tomorrow's adventures before retiring to the comfort of your Western bed.
A western continental breakfast is included, or feel free to fry up bacon and eggs just how you like them in the communal kitchen.
Fast, free Wifi throughout the lodge living areas.
In-house yoga sessions can be booked (a day or two in advance) with a local yoga instructor.
Cosy, communal living areas with fairy tale, snowy views over the village and a toasty, double sided open fire place.
Revitalising, mineral rich water, sourced from a natural hot spring.
Soak with company or privately.
Separate showers also available.
A commercial kitchen is available for your use and each room has it's own food cupboard and fridge space.
THINGS TO DO
Nice outing when you feel like a day off from skiing/boarding perhaps due to less epic conditions. It’s a 4hr return snowshoe to the thundering waterfall.
Stroll past interesting shops and restaurants as you make your way towards the 1400 year old Buddhist temple.
Backcountry & Crosscountry Skiing
We can recommend great local backcountry tour guides in Myoko. We are also happy to share our secret powder stash knowledge with properly equipped, experienced, safety conscious guests.
Go on an organised tour to Jigokudani, or talk to us and we may be able to organise for you (minimum 4 persons).
Take to the city for a change in scenery and hit some izakaya bars for happy hour.
Enjoy fireworks and local food trucks while staying warm by the bonfire. These festivals are to prevent illness in the coming year and pray for rich harvest.
