The Lodge Moiwa 834 Living Area with Outdoor View | Moiwa

As far as we know this is the first ski resort capsule hotel in the world, but we suspect it won’t be the last. Capsule hotels originated in Tokyo and were designed for business people who worked late and didn’t have time to head home for the night. The Lodge Moiwa 834 meanwhile, has been built in partnership with The North Face outdoor adventure brand to cater for hardcore skiers and snowboarders – guys and gals who just need an affordable place to rest their heads at night in between smashing powder, rather than fancy accommodation with unnecessary bells and whistles.

Having said that, these digs are brand new and very stylish – the label “budget accommodation” refers only to the price tag. There are about 16 capsules in each of six dorm-style rooms. There are communal mens’ and womens’ showers and bathrooms which are very modern and super clean. The communal living area is a huge lounge room with dining tables and leather couches surrounding a wood-burning fireplace. Full-floor-to-ceiling windows face up the mountain – perfect for pointing out to your runs to your buddies as you’re recounting the day’s stories.

There is plenty of free parking out the front of the building for those who want to rent a car. Free wifi is piped through the building as well, and there are coin-operated laundry facilities onsite.

Lodge Moiwa 834


The Lodge Moiwa 834 is located right on the slopes of Moiwa Ski Resort – right on the slopes of Mt Moiwa. There is no village to speak of, although neighbouring Moiwa Lodge does have a small restaurant/bar on premises. As two meals are included and the ski slopes, ski school and rental is right in front of the lodge, serious skiers and snowboarders have all they need for their stay.


The closest Niseko United resort to Moiwa is Annupuri, and the two resorts can actually be skied between for advanced skiers. It’s just a five-minute drive between Moiwa and Annupuri, but quite a long walk by road – it might take an hour or so. Lodge Moiwa 834 runs regular shuttles to Annupuri Village, where you can change buses for transport to Hirafu Village.


There are several small restaurants in Moiwa but no bars. If you want a quiet drink, your best bet is to stick around the lodge or head across to Lucky Fingers bar in Annupuri. If you want to party, head into Hirafu which is probably a half hour or so on the bus. The closest bus stop is located at the Kanronomori Hotel, about five or 10 minutes walk from the lodge. There is a free shuttle bus that runs from the lodge to Kanronomori three times each day.
