Mukashi Mukashi King Size Bed with Study Table | Middle Hirafu

“Mukashi Mukashi” translates to ‘once upon a time’ – fitting for this fairytale in design and artistic expression. Read more about the design process here.

Textured concrete, quick rust metal, and dark polished wood elements make up the facade of the building while decorative elements spice up the functional, geometric lines inside. Materials used include woven bamboo, industrial concrete and steel, treated wood, richly textured stone tiles and metal panels – all coming together to add unique grace to every aspect of the building.

Mukashi Mukashi comprises of three levels, with all utilities on the first level – undercover garage, expansive laundry, ski storage and dry room and a side room for helpers or nannies to occupy. The second level is home to an expansive living, kitchen/dining, media room and children’s areas, while the third level features the five main bedrooms – each with en suite bathroom and individually decorated headboard elements.

At Mukashi Mukashi’s heart is a gas fireplace: housed in glass on both sides, it creates a window that looks into the living room and through to the forests surrounding Hirafu Village.

A full feature kitchen comprised of long stone counters flush against three sides of the kitchen/dining space – more room than you could ever need to cook up culinary delights or have a chef come in and do it all for you. Surrounded on all sides by the kitchen counters is a long wooden dining table that seats all 14 of the lodge’s guests.

Should you grow tired of the gorgeous forest vistas in the living room there is a dedicated media room with black-out curtains and a 70-inch LCD TV. We highly recommend at least one movie night during your stay.

Mukashi Mukashi
Location

SETTING / ATMOSPHERE

Mukashi Mukashi is settled in just the right place if you want to be close to lifts and nightlife. A little down from the main intersection, expect some diners and revelers passing the front of the property in the evenings seeking out the gourmet hot spots on this street. Thankfully Hirafu-Zaka street’s underground heating extends a little down the steep incline below the intersection, saving you from icy sidewalks underfoot.

LIFTS / TRANSPORT

The lifts are a five-minute walk away, with a short walk uphill to the main intersection and then a quick traverse bringing you to the Ace Family Quad lift. There are regular shuttle services passing by Mukashi Mukashi, and the inter-resort shuttle stop is also nearby. If you have your International Drivers Permit, the property’s management provides a four-wheel-drive vehicle for the duration of your stay to help you get to where you need to go.

RESTAURANTS / BARS

Mukashi Mukashi shares the block with some of Hirafu’s most beloved nightlife spots. Gyu+ bar (the famous fridge door bar) is a little downhill, while popular downtempo dive bar Moon Bar is a little up the street (and serves very reasonable Japanese Izakaya style food upstairs in the “Otsukisama” restaurant). With your own car, a drive to the supermarket in Kutchan town is always recommended, but you can fill your larder at the local convenience store that is just up the road.
