We both very much enjoyed our two-night stay at Gakuto Villas, despite the September rain. The villas themselves are deceptively spacious, and the numerous skylights add to the sense of openness. With a well-stocked supermarket a 10-minute bike-ride away, guests can choose to cook and eat in, or walk/cycle/taxi to one of the many restaurants in the vicinity. Gakuto is situated in the Wadano-Mori area of Hakuba. As the name suggests, it is a forested area dotted with pensions and hotels that serve skiers during the snow months. In the summer, the area is delightfully deserted. Although there are cheaper places, Gakuto Villas is highly recommended if, like me, you need to escape the big city once in a while and you crave/deserve a bit of luxury.
