Our Location

We are located in the Hatsukaishi area of Ishiuchi Maruyama Ski Resort (Japanese WebsiteEnglish Website)

The closest station is Echigo-Yuzawa (or Gala in winter).

Catching the JREast Joetsu Shinkansen to Niigata from Tokyo ( or Ueno), or Omiya, or Takasaki or from the other direction, Niigata International Airport, Niigata City takes just over an hour.

A free bus or a  local bus runs during the day from Echigo-Yuzawa station to Ishiuchi (east exit, down the escalator). Get off at Hatsukaishi, catch the first chairlift, then walk uphill, to the right (about 450m).

When driving, turn off Highway 17 at Yung Paranas Onsen (known locally as ‘Yungo Paranasu’) and drive through the tunnel and park on the roadside… walk straight uphill (about 300m).

…or call us on 070 4062 7864 and we’ll pick you up in our ski-doo!
