“A rare opportunity to book a local institution”

Japan is set the reopen to international tourism after nearly 3 years of borders being closed. COVID forced us to pivot: formerly a full-service lodge we’re now operating as a self-contained mansion, offering a house with the lot, that is perfect for groups to vacation in the beautiful Hakuba valley. With a hot tub, cinema room, yoga room, games rooms and much more, The Phat House is your perfect winter getaway. For room-by-room bookings try our other property The Phat Packers.

The Phat House was the highlight of our whole trip to Japan. The house is amazing, the people are amazing, they just made everything run so smoothly... The house is phenomenal - clean, stylish, amazing communal vibe and sick touches... Don't bother staying anywhere else in Hakuba.

The Phat house is easily my favourite alpine accomodation that i have stayed at in my 12 years of riding. I went there off a recommendation from a friend and would be more than happy to confidently recommend it to any body.

I had the best time at The Phat House! I was supposed to stay 3 nights and I ended up staying a week... It’s the only option for me when I come back to Hakuba! Best times of my life!

The Phat house was a very comfortable stay. They have delicious food and the bed was extremely comfortable... The heater worked amazingly. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Would recommend staying here.

There are 10 Resorts in the Hakuba Valley and the snow conditions are a powder lovers dream. There is a mixture of terrain suitable for all levels of skier or rider. For those looking for more of adventure Hakuba’s world renowned backcountry terrain is vast and endless. Welcome to paradise.



Hakuba is home to one of only a handful of accessed MTB parks in all of Japan. Iwatake MTB park (just up the road from The Phatty) has a number of different course and is suitable for all levels of biker. With long flow trails and some expert level jumps, they really have something for everyone.



Hakuba is renowned for its hiking and hikers across the country decent on Hakuba in off-season to take in the breathtaking views. With many options and great facilities, hiking in the Hakuba Valley is some of the best hiking in all of Japan.
