cheapest hovel in hakuba

Recommended Posts

Nothing cheaper than the back of a car @ 47/Goryu/Iwatake car park

 

(Most of Happo's car parks charge, as do Tsugaike's)

 

Lots of selfish gits park all night at the 7-11, so that you get folk having to stop on the Olympic Road just to get some noodles/have a wazz. Just what you need when visibility's poor and/or the roads are frozen.

 

I heard of one guy getting snowed in his van and taking 30 minutes to get out over New Year, but these things happen. If you want a proper roof, check out Mitch at snowbeds. It's something like 3000 yen per person.

You don't have a roof in your tent? What kind'a tents they seeling these days?!?!

 

Futon fits in not a problem. No room for much else though.

 

Heater - gas burners double up fine. Make you sleep easier too smile.gif

 

If you don't like the tent idea, perhpas you could rent a van and take NoFakie's advice.

Or you could try building your own snow hovel. If you make it big enough you can have a nice bucket of hot charcoal in it. Cosy!

Try Lady Diana Ski Hotel, or St George. Ask for Kazuzo Kato. Its a great place, near the slopes and very reasonable.
