The Hotel Soyokaze is probably the nicest ski lodge in the Echoland area.
This modern lodge has large bedrooms, all with en-suite, and is one of the best locations you will find in Hakuba.
The Soyokaze is great for both wining and dining, as it is only 20m from the main street of Echoland, and also for getting to all the resorts in Hakuba, as the shuttle bus stop is only 50m away.
Owned and operated by Takao Muto and his wife, they provide a very high level of service at a very reasonable price. Takao is a great chef, and one of his multi-course French dinners is a must at least once for all guests staying here.
Guests can soak away their worries at the end of the day in the outdoor bath that is used privately. There is no better way to refresh tired muscles and you'll sleep better than you have in years.
