Studio / 2 Bedrooms / 3 Bedrooms

Shikaku is exactly what the perfect bachelor pad should look and feel like. We love it. 

These are seriously cool studio, two bedroom and, combined together, three bedroom apartments.  Avant-garde design, balancing privacy with open living spaces and a warm luxuriant ambience. The apartments have well-appointed modern kitchens, good size bedrooms and and elegant bathrooms. It's all rather masculine, but we think the ladies will also find themselves swooning at the style. The top floor penthouse apartments boast external spa baths on covered decks with views over Hirafu. Wow.

I'm on a waiting list to move in.

  • Balcony

  • Dishwasher

A fantastic position in Middle Hirafu village, close to the main intersection and only 4 minutes walk to the nearest chairlift. It has easy access to village convenience stores, shops, restaurants, nightlife and onsens. It just keeps getting better and better.

Distances to:

Ski Lifts: 140 metres
Shuttle Bus: 20 metres

An indicative per night cost for a Studio Apartment during low season would be about ¥17,500 (£100), rising to circa ¥78,000 (£455) per night during the peak periods for the pimp Three Bedroom Apartment with outdoor spa bath.
