Established in 1937,the Akakura Kanko Hotel was one of the first European-style ski resorts in Japan. Today it combines that old-world tradition with modern amenities and a unique Japanese touch,in one of the most remarkable hotel settings anywhere.From its 1,000-meter perch are views of the mountains all around,Lake Nojiri sparkling to the east, and,on a clear day,all the way to Sado Island across the Sea of Japan. The Hotel has 52 comfortable,spacious guest rooms,both Western and Japanese,each with panoramic mountain views. Two different mineral hot springs provide unique properties to sooth and invigorate. Swim in our indoor pool,with spectacular views of the ski slopes.
Enjoy excellent dining at the Terrace and Ajisai restaurants,and drinks and snacks at the Lobby Lounge and the Bar. The entire Hotel was recently extensively renovated,keeping its special style while ensuring the highest levels of quality and service.
You literally ski out the door to the Akakura Onsen Ski Area; with more than 13 meters of snow annually,you’re guaranteed great skiing at this diverse ski area. Enjoy a four-kilometer run from the 1,500-meter-plus top of the hill,or whatever else fits your skills and interests: powder skiing,bumps,terrain parks,of just fun family cruising.
