Yama Shizen Location
Yama Shizen is in an ideal location for hitting the slopes with the Hirafu Gondola just a four-minute walk away and only 400m to the base of the Ace Family run. For the intermediate and above riders, an off-piste trail makes it unofficially ski-in/ski-out. There’s a small coffee shop downstairs for your morning pick-me-up as well as Yama Dining, the on-site restaurant, which offers an upscale menu of Western and Japanese fusion, as well as an extensive and reasonably priced wine menu. You don’t have to walk much further to get to the main hub of Hirafu’s eating and drinking establishments.
