My wife and I had a great time staying at Sakka Sanso during early February 2020. Originally, we were a bit hesitant about staying in a place without personal bathroom. But Mrs. Matsuzawa, the owner, Ms. Yamaguchi, her staff member, and other helpers have worked very hard to ensure we are really well taken care of from the moment we got picked up at the train station. Their superb service had way more than made up for our concerns. During our stay we got to experience warm small town Japanese hospitality, comfortable and clean tatami futon beds, personal hot pot breakfast and so much more. Mrs. Matsuzawa and Ms. Yamaguchi even went out of their way to help us with our JR train arrangement back to Tokyo. We highly recommend Sakka Sanso to those who want to visit Hakuba.

I highly recommend this place. Misayo is a super nice and hospitable lady. She gave us free arrival pickup and rides to the Happo Gondola. We had a fantastic Christmas here with Champagne, homemade cakes, fried chicken wings and Karaoke! Staying in Sakka Sanso would definitely exceed your expectation.

Really enjoyed our stay. Its a great location with a short 100m walk to a main lower happo lift. Staff where delightful and very accommodating. Rooms while basic where very comfortable and the food at the downstairs restaurant was a highlight.
