4869 Wadano-no-mori, Hakuba Village, Nagano-ken, 399-9103, Japan
A five-minute walk (or ski) from the Happo-o-ne lift, the family-run Noichigo feels more like a European guesthouse than a Japanese inn. The rooms are simple but comfortable, and the walls of the cozy dining area are adorned with paintings and sketches by owner and "Hakuba Art Meister" Takayuki Tuno. You can take color-pencil drawing classes for a small fee. The owners are friendly and have a wealth of knowledge about the area. It's worth booking a room with meals; the hearty breakfasts and four-course dinners are well worth the cost.
- excellent location for hiking and skiing
