About the Property

Show All
The Japanese are renowned for their “omotenashi” hospitality, where hosts pay attention and anticipate the needs of their guests. Pension Folktale in Otari is no exception.

Beautiful year round, Pension Folktale is a great base for enjoying the mountains in all seasons - but winter is when the real magic happens. Located at Hakuba Norikura / Cortina ski fields, and with Tsugaike just down the road, this area is a snow lovers dream - it gets the most powder snow in the Hakuba Valley, is the least crowded, and has excellent terrain suitable for all levels.
