The Ridge Hakuba Hotel and Apartments was originally built as a luxurious retreat for members of the Japanese Imperial Family as a base when the last Olympics were staged in Japan. Nestled on the edge of the prestigious Wadano area at the base of the largest ski resort Happo One, The Ridge offers the finest Hakuba ski accommodation.
This Australian owned hotel is a hidden jewel offering unparalleled Western style Hakuba luxury accommodation, amenities and service. Mixing the best contemporary design with simple, sophisticated comfort, The Ridge offers a fresh, modern lodging experience. Only an easy, flat 200 meters from Happo One's main chair lift, and surrounded by restaurants, bars and onsens, The Ridge is the ideal location for everyone.
