Kodama is following the government recommendations and guidelines about Covid-19 and will be open this winter season. The 9 resorts of Hakuba Valley are planning to welcome you this winter. For the moment, residents only are allowed in the country, we are still waiting for the borders to open again and we will give you some more updates as soon as tourists can come back.
To the persons that resides in Japan, we are happy to announce that we have registered for the various discount campaigns organized by the Japanese government and Nagano Prefecture. We look forward to the return of the Go To Travel campain this winter season.

For your convenience, dinner will be served every night at the lodge this season and is included in your room price. We will be serving some European and Fusion cuisine and will propose Raclette cheese dinners as an option for groups of 8 peoples or more so you will feel like it’s a ski holiday in the Swiss Alps.
If you’re on this page you probably already know that there is some snow in Japan. But it took more than just snow for two swiss freeride experts to decide to live here.
Just three hours from Tokyo, the Hakuba Valley is home to the biggest mountains of Japan and with an average of 12 meters of snow every winter and nine resorts to accommodate experts and beginners, we’re not afraid to say that this is the best place in the world for lift accessed backcountry. As 4 to 5 days per week it will be dumping snow, we choose to open a ski-in ski-out lodge in the resort that gets the most snow and the best tree runs in the valley. When the weather will clear up, you’ll be happy to follow our advices to get your fix of big mountain.
Both growing up in the Swiss Alps, competing in International freeriding events and travelling the world to surf and snowboard, we will be more than happy to share our knowledge of the mountain and the Japanese culture in French, English, German, Spanish and Japanese.
Come spend a few days with us at KODAMA SKI IN / SKI OUT LODGE and experience our unique service and atmosphere for your dream skiing holiday!!
