Ohisama House is a property featuring spacious living areas as well as an outdoor terrace. Its ski-in/ski-out access makes the lodge a real gem amongst Rusutsu’s various accommodation options, and provides a luxurious sense of convenience for weary skiers and snowboarders at the end of another incredible day in the snow.
