Accommodation Info

Kagura Accommodation It’s possible to stay mid-mountain at Kagura at the Wada-goya lodge. The accommodation is basic and there’s very little to do at night except rest up for first tracks in the morning. Access to the lodge needs to be during lift operation hours because getting there is achieved via the Mitsumata ropeway, a lift and then the Kagura gondola. 

Other Kagura accommodation is within the small villages at the base of Mitsumata and Tashiro. There are only a small number of hotels and lodges and very little else in the way of off-slope entertainment.

Onsen Minshuku Yutakaya offers simple Japanese style rooms with shared bathroom, including a hot spring (onsen) bath. The little Japanese inn is located about 5 minutes walk from the Tashiro base of the ski resort.

Yuzawa Hotels

Another option is to stay in the town of Yuzawa, which is about 8km away. This is a particularly good choice if you want to sample multiple Yuzawa ski resorts.

If you stay in one of the Yuzawa hotels near the train station (e.g. Yuzawa Grand Hotel, Echigo Yuzawa Hatago Isen) you can get to other Yuzawa ski resorts via the bus system, or if you have a car you’ll have the ultimate flexibility to get around.

Yuzawa has nice Japanese style hotels and ryokans where you can fully immerse yourself in the culture, and the town has a good range of restaurants and bars.
