Recommended Posts

  • SnowJapan Admin




Welcome to the first Giveaway/Competition of the 09/10 season. It's still very early of course with months to go before the season gets underway, but we have a lot to fit in.


For this first one, something a bit different.... your chance to leave your mark on a restaurant in Hakuba!


Here's what the competition is all about:


Help us find a name for the restaurant and bar at the Double Black - White Horse Hotel in Hakuba. The restaurant serves up a modern western style menu with a Japanese influence at a reasonable price. It has seating for 44 people and kids are welcome and well catered for. Along with a large timber bar and comfortable couch and tub chairs the area has a high vaulted ceiling with a huge feature BBQ. A great range of international wines, beers and top shelf spirits are on offer along with Illy coffee served throughout the day. Opening hours at the bar are 5pm until 11pm and the restaurant 6pm until 9pm everyday of the winter season.


So, put on the thinking caps and think of a good name for the restaurant and then go to the page below to enter and your chance to win.




Two nights accommodation at the Double Black - White Horse Hotel for 2 including breakfast each morning, a 3 course dinner for two in the newly named restaurant with a bottle of wine, free Hakuba shuttle service to all ten of the ski resorts in the valley and Hakuba Station transfers.


The prize is NON-TRANSFERABLE (ie. only the winner can use them).




Friday 11th September - Thursday 1st October 2009

More details about this Giveaway, including conditions and validity, can be found on the above page (above).

Ladies and Gents,


I distinctly recall great discussion on how long the minimum time would need to be for someone to travel internationally to Japan, revolving around this competition.


I said a weekender.
