2 Bedrooms / 3 Bedrooms

Offering excellent value and a convenient location in central Hirafu, these two and three bedroom apartments are ideal if you’re travelling as a group or family. The apartments are located on one of the most sought-after streets in the village – quiet enough to be peaceful but just a short hop from everything you’ll need, from shops and restaurants to bus stops and ski lifts. The nearest shuttle stop is just down the hill, but it's probably quicker to take the slightly longer walk uphill to the bottom of the nearest lift.

Shinsetsu Apartments are well-appointed and well laid out, with a warm, homely feel. In each there is a kitchen and lounge with satellite TV and there are also shared laundry and ski storage facilities downstairs.

  • Fully-fitted Kitchen
  • Microwave
  • Satellite/Cable TV
  • Ski Lockers
  • WiFi (free)
  • Washing Machine
  • Bath Tub

Down a side-street in the Middle Hirafu village. Literally a snowballs’ throw away from the restaurants and bars, but fortunately a little tucked away from any noise. You’d need to walk down the hill to the bottom of Momiji Zaka Street to catch the shuttle bus - less than four minutes. But turn left and head up the hill and you’re almost at the lifts.

Distances to:

Ski Lifts: 350 metres
Restaurants and Bars: 50 metres
Shop(s): 70 metres
Shuttle Bus: 70 metres

An indicative cost for a Two Bedroom Apartment during the lowest season would be about ¥22,000 (£130) per night, rising to circa ¥55,000 (£320) per night during the peak periods.
