SETTING / ATMOSPHERE
Ummei is located right between Middle and Lower Hirafu. It’s a quiet residential area and there are sloping spare lots all around the house that fill with snow and provide endless fun for kids – it is on the main road through the lower village though so younger kids would need to be supervised and older kids warned.
LIFTS / TRANSPORT
The free shuttle bus stopping about 100m away will transport you up to the ski lifts in about five to 10 minutes, depending on how many passengers are waiting as it loops through the lower village. It’s about 10-minutes’ walk to the closest ski lift and the heart of the village, where you will find everything you need.
RESTAURANTS / BARS
Within five-minutes walk from the chalet are plenty of great restaurants and bars. Just around the corner is the famous Momiji Zaka Street which is packed with a great variety of restaurants, including some of the most popular – We’re talking Ezo Seafood, The Barn, Full Note Jazz Bar, Tamashii Bar, Yosaku and more!
