Myoko Ski Lodge offers an east meets west accommodation and skiing experience for pioneering explorers in the culturally traditional, Japanese village of Akakura Onsen. The perfect ski lodge accommodation from which to explore the greater Myoko ski area with some of the most reliably best, uncrowded, chair lifted, powder skiing in the world.

Start each day with a complimentary, d.i.y. continental breakfast in our spacious, valley view dining area.

Then it's a quick, easy walk, slide, ski, downhill from the lodge to the nearest chairlift in Akakura Onsen Ski Resort's own, family friendly ski area, complete with English speaking ski school and the convenience of linking chair lifts to adjoining Akakura Kanko for the bigger lines and great backcountry. Either way, you can still ski right back to the lodge door for lunch!

For the more adventurous with a penchant to explore, you'll find yourself conveniently located to multiple ski areas with a wide variety of terrain, from the longest groomed run in Japan to mesmerising tree skiing, park snowboarding and back-country shredding at one of five ski resorts all within a 30 minute shuttle bus ride from the village, making our central Myoko location the best place to stay in Myoko.

After each epic day, carving your name on Mount Myoko, it's time to relax with a revitalising soak in one of our own, in-house, natural, volcanic hot spring fed, onsen baths.

Perhaps, socialise with a drink and enjoy friends or family time by the double sided, stone fire place, before strolling to dinner at a ramen bar or one of several other delicious village restaurant options or choose to whip up something simple (or fancy) with your family or friends (old and new) in Myoko Ski Lodge's self catering communal kitchen.

After dinner, retreat to the cosy lodge lounge to compare tales of the day's memorable powder experiences and share plans with new friends from around the world for tomorrow's adventures before retiring to the comfort of your Japanese style bedroom for a comfortable sleep on a western bed.
