Hotel Overview

Where

A convenient ten minute walk from Yudanaka’s train station and 25 minutes by car from Shiga-Koen’s Sun Valley ski resort.

Rooms at Yudanaka View

Stripped back, sleek and retaining a traditional, Japanese charm, Yudanaka View Hotel offers a choice of tatami mats or Western bedding. Ask for a room on the ninth floor, where you can enjoy your own private tub with a mountain view.

Food and facilities

Hop into one of the hotel’s indoor or outdoor hot-spring ‘onsens’, a regional highlight and remedy for aching traveller’s bones. Then, slip on your complementary yukata (traditional bathrobes) before tucking into the hotel’s exquisite Japanese meals. The set menu is comprised of 7-11 courses, and is sure to delight even the most sceptical of diners. Pluck mushrooms from their stump to roast over your own personal grill – locals even get to take the stump home with them to grow their own.

Activities at Yudanaka View

Hot foot it to nearby Jigokudani Park and watch the snow monkeys bathe and frolic in the hot springs. Hire skis, snowboards and snow boots from the hotel and head off to Shiga-Koen; the region is ideal stomping ground for avid hikers, too. Yudanaka View Hotel provides a free shuttle service to and from all local attractions.
