This place is a great place to stay in Hirafu for a ski trip. We travelled from Milwaukee, USA to Hirafu as part of a spring break vacation. This place was cleaner than mist of the places we rented in Colorado. It is quiet, close to convenience store and all facilities. The owner is very very helpful and welcoming from...

The White Bear is a great place to stay in Hirafu!!! The rooms and facilities were clean and met our needs. The main common room provided a place to go after skiing and enjoy some family time. Breakfasts were excellent. The facility was close t excellent restaurants and bars as well as two convenience stores for getting our basic needs...

Arrived two days ago. Staying in a lofted room which means the beds are up a few stairs and the loft accommodates two single beds and two futons. Very comfortable for 2... You'd have to be on very good terms with your two other friends otherwise. Probably ideal for a couple with two kids too. Not a lot of storage....

Been back couple times, the accomodation is adequate, rooms what you would expect, ski room so so, brekkies good but best of all is the location. The shuttle is pretty empty when you get on and off and it's close to the centre

Centrally located, well priced, clean, warm cosy and well set up for skiing/boarding. There is a drying room, warm 24/7, access to laundry facilities, boiling...

We stayed at a room with a loft, and the hostess was amazing in making us feel like home. She went out of her way to make sure that our travel arrangements were properly taken care of, in the middle of a snow storm. The location was also perfect.

I have just returned from a two week stay at White Bear in Hirafu and can advise people to stay there. It is central to the village and has bus stops just outside for shuttle access and buses to Kutchan and other areas of Niseko United ski fields. Most other pensions are in the lower village and it is not...
