2 Bedrooms

These sprightly two bedroom apartments in the heart of Hirafu are ideal if you’ll be hitting the slopes hard in the day and the restaurants or bars equally hard after dark. You’ll benefit from all the conveniences of a central location – shuttle stop, supermarket, restaurants and bars – as well as some serious Japanese gadgetry! Keypad code access means easy entry without having to coordinate key ownership; everything seems to be automatic – the door, the toilet, the TV, the fridge; the front door locks itself; the lift speaks to you; lights turn on automatically when it is dark.

There are more characterful places to stay, but the apartments are functional, central, and affordable, and they offer private laundry facilities, lovely views over the ski area or Mount Yotei, and entertainment systems such as TVs, DVD players, an internet connected i-mac and stereo.

  • Bath Tub
  • Balcony
  • Dishwasher
  • DVD Player
  • Fully-fitted Kitchen
  • Microwave
  • Ski Lockers
  • Television
  • Washing Machine
  • WiFi (free)

The Mountainside Palace Apartments are located in the heart of Upper Hirafu village, only seconds walk to restaurants, bars and the Seicomart (the local convenience store). There is a shuttle bus stop almost out the front of the building so whilst the lifts are eight minute flat walk, it is only a few minutes by shuttle if you choose to catch a bus.

Distances to:

Ski Lifts: 500 metres
Restaurants and Bars: 10 metres

These apartments are great value, considering the enviable location in the Upper Village. An indicative per night cost for a Two Bedroom Apartment during low season would be circa ¥44,000 (£255), rising to circa ¥60,000 (£350) per night during the peak periods.
