Special features of the Mominoki Hotel

Hakuba Mominoki hotel is a 4-star resort located at the base of the Happoone Mountain, a part of the Japanese Northern Alps, in the vast forest of Wadano.

The hotel boasts the 2nd highest ranked Alkaline concentrated 'Onsen' (hotspring) in Japan. The onsen with an outside bath is named "Shobei no Yu" and is also known by the name "Beauty Bath" as it is highly valued for its mineral properties.

The main restaurant "Shara" provides our guests with a extensive buffet, wth ingredients sourced locally in Nagano. Our open kitchen provides 'Teppanyaki' dishes prepared right in front of you.

In the recent years the hotel has been featured in the Tokyo TV program, "The Dawn of Galliard" and has been acclaimed both locally and internationally, including awards from Luxury Travel Guide.

Apart from 75 rooms, including suites and Western-Japanese style rooms, the large hotel premises offer a visitor center and four restaurant bars (only 3 opened during winter season).

The hotel also provides guests with a heliport, as well as offering pick-up by helicopter at the Haneda airport; it can also be used by guests owning a helicopter.

In 2015 we rennovated the onsen, restaurant, lounge area and acquired Simmons matresses for each hotel bed.
