The Place
There are two types of skiing people in this world. One - those who have been dreaming of strapping on their skis and ripping up some fine powder on a mountain in Japan before retiring to a traditional alpine chalet and having a soak in a steaming hot spring, and two - the ones who've already done it and can't wait to go again. Say "konnichiwa" to Pension Folktale, a beautiful lodge in Nagano that's run by a family who are renowned for their warm hospitality.

The team here go above and beyond to make you feel at home, prepare absolutely mouthwatering meals and point you in the direction of the best slopes. The rooms are warm and comfortable, but with all that inviting snow literally on your doorstep, staying inside is hardly an option. Nagano is kind of like a mecca to all things snow. Pilgrims (aka every snow boarder, skier, or person in the world) flock to its mountain range every year, which hosted the Winter Olympics in 1998. Renowned for its spectacular snowfall, lush valleys, pristine rivers and spiritual side, it's easy to see why you'll consider moving to Nagano (trust us, it'll happen).

The Points of Interest
Zenko-ji is home to the celebrated ikko-Sanzon statue, one of the first Buddist images to arrive in Japan
• The hikes and walks are nothing short of incredible when you're at Tsugaike Natural Park
• A trip to Japan wouldn't be complete without a culinary adventure at some of the local restaurants
• Kick off your snow boots and dance the night away at one of the nearby pubs or bars

Pension Folktale | Website

  • What a gem! The Suzuki's are such warm and generous people, the location and food were awesome, the skiing was just incredible, and the whole experience felt like a true cultural experience rather than just a ski holiday. It was awesome!
