Welcome to our Vacation Rental!

Our Log House
Our Log House

You may have heard of the powder snow in Niseko - now go experience it! There is more of it, and it is drier than almost anywhere on the planet. Experience skiing through silver-birch woods in waist-deep powder. Then come home to our log fire and western comfort.

Our house is a large house made entirely of whole cedar logs. This gives us a beautiful warm interior and characterful exterior.

There are three floors to give you lots of space. The lower floor has a huge integral garage with warm ski and boot store-room and leads into the main bathroom area, so you can keep out of the snow when you want.

The western kitchen, Wi-Fi, phone and cable TV make your stay a real luxury! Come experience Japan with western comforts.

We welcome children and pets, as we are surrounded by open land and woodland which is a paradise for walking and playing.

Every year we are booked all season - so click NOW!!

The perfect place to spend our Christmas in the snow


TokyoEthel from tokyo
Date: Jan-03-2012

This was our second Christmas in a row in Kabayama log house, and after last time, we didn't even stop to think for a moment where we would go this year. The house can comfortably sleep 6, with plenty of living and chillout areas for everyone and lots of bathrooms, but for 2 of us it was still very cosy. What was key for us was having somewhere walking distance to the lifts but not in the middle of Hirafu, and a good kitchen. We got this and much more, with comfortable beds, lots of room for ski gear, TV with english channels, and the luxury of service in having the front of the house cleared of the mountains of snow every day! Also the management company which runs the house dealt with any problems or questions that we had incredibly fast, so we are totally satisfied all-round. We love coming to Kabayama Log House and we hope to stay here as long as we keep coming to Hirafu. Thanks for a great stay.
