Hotel Green Plaza Joetsu

9 Day British Columbia Ski Tour
The Green Plaza Hotel Joetsu is a very large hotel that sits in a unique ski-in ski-out position at the Joetsu Kokusai Ski Resort. The hotel is so large that it almost feels like a town inside a hotel!

The hotel looks rather striking with its bright red roof against the snowy backdrop and its Tudor style (it looks very similar to the Hotel Green Plaza Hakuba).

The Green Plaza Hotel Joetsu is popular with those looking for an all inclusive ski holiday and the convenience of a ski-in ski-out location. It’s particularly popular with families due to the amenities and services on offer.

Where is the Hotel Green Plaza Joetsu?

The Hotel Green Plaza Joetsu is located a little up from the base of the Joetsu Kokusai Ski Resort, which is 14km north of Yuzawa in the Niigata Prefecture.

It’s just over a 100 minute train ride from Tokyo to the Joetsu Kokusai train station, and a very short shuttle ride then gets you up to the hotel. Free car parking is available onsite.
