G'Day Japan! / Basics / SOAKING UP THE ALPINE SPLENDOUR OF HACHIMANTAI

The hotels of the Hachimantai resort area lie at the foot of the rugged Mt Iwate (2,038 m), and are a haven for nature lovers throughout the seasons. This complex volcano is one of Japan’s 100 famous mountains, and one of the many in Towada-Hachimantai National Park, which encompasses a vast area of old-growth beech forests, wetlands, lakes and alpine streams. Hot spring communities are scattered throughout, and open-air hot spring bathing amidst this pristine landscape is stunning.

Hachimantai Royal Hotel and Hachimantai Resort Hotel both offer some of the area’s best accommodation, and are popular bases for skiers and snowboarders in the winter. With 229 rooms, Hachimantai Royal Hotel is the larger of the two, and offers a range of comfortable Western, Japanese, single and suite rooms with full amenities – including yukata kimono to lounge in after enjoying a hot spring bath. Like the 88-room Hachimantai Resort Hotel, it has elegant open-air baths with delightful views; both hotels also provide guests with an interconnecting room option, which can accommodate groups of up to seven.
