big bear hakuba apartments 


Welcome to Hakuba's Big Bear Apartments, located at the base of the Happo-one Resort, site of the 1998 Winter Olympics. Located in a ski-in/ski-out position, the apartments are modern and stylish.

We offer the following apartments and possible configurations:

  • studio apartment: 2-3 guests
  • ONE bedroom apartment: 2-4 guests
  • TWO bedroom apartment: 3-4 guests
  • ADJOINING STUDIO + one bedroom: 4-6 guests
  • ADJOINING one bedroom + two bedroom: 5-8 guests

Each apartment is finished and furnished to a high standard, with high-speed internet, Netflix-enabled smart TVs, well-equipped kitchens and all other conveniences to ensure absolute comfort. The Big Bear Apartments are ideal for smaller groups, couples, or even larger groups of friends who desire their own space, but wish to stay in close proximity to each other. Of particular interest to guests with children too young to ride the lifts is the Happo-one Resort's Kids' Snow Park, which is just a one minute walk from the Big Bear Apartments and offers a variety of 'on-snow' activities for the kids. This is also where the Happo Kids' Club is located, offering indoor child-minding services and activities for small children. 

Weekly linen changes, regular towel changes and daily supermarket / restaurant shuttles are provided and we are happy to assist guests with other services including airport transfers, ski rental, lessons, lift passes, child-minding and other arrangements. As an owner-operated business, we offer the personal service and local knowledge that ensures guests will get the most out of their time in Hakuba.
