Chalet Madarao offers affordable fully catered Japan snow accommodation in Madarao, one of Japan's best ski areas. Being one of the first western owned and operated ski lodges in the area we offer you the opportunity to experience the local Japanese culture and rich history of the Madarao area whilst staying in a familiar style of accommodation. Just metres from the slopes Chalet Madarao provides almost ski in and true ski out accommodation in an amazing location.

Grab your gear, cross the road and ski down to the lifts. Coming home, catch the lift and ski down to the lodge. Being the last lodge on the road there is no passing traffic to worry about. This makes it the ideal Madarao accommodation for ski bunnies who want to be in the heart of the action. Surrounded by other pensions and forest, there is space for outside play including building snowmen, snowball fights and even our own terrain park.

We have Western style rooms or Japanese style rooms. Standard occupancy in the Western style rooms is 2 people but they can take 2 additional children or an additional adult. These rooms have king single beds that can be joined together to form a huge double bed.

The Japanese style rooms have tatami mats and futons. Standard occupancy is 3 people but they will take an extra 2 people.


We have a restaurant on-site and guests can stay in to eat or go out to other restaurants in the resort. There are a number of other restaurants nearby which is perfect as we know most people want a mix of eating in and dining out. There is a restaurant at the top of the street and we are also near the main hotel.
