Our dedication to managing this hotel stems from the goal of providing satisfaction to guests who have selected "Lake Shirakaba" amidst numerous tourist destinations, traveling a considerable distance to be here.

I hold a deep affection for Lake Shirakaba. While in my younger days, I found this place to be somewhat solitary, with the passage of time, I have grown to appreciate its beauty more. The glistening lake surface illuminated by the morning and evening sun never fails to amaze me. The ever-changing seasons bring out the mystical beauty of Lake Shirakaba.

As for my favorite season, well, it is all of them (laughs). Summer offers a pleasant and comfortable coolness, autumn, though a bit solitary, captivates with the charm of susuki grass, and winter ensures the slopes are always buzzing with excitement, urging me to give my best. In spring, as you pass by the foot of the mountain, witnessing the budding of plants is a delightful sight. Lake Shirakaba is a place where you can experience the beauty of nature throughout the entire year.

The colors of the sky during sunset are exceptionally beautiful. The lobby's large window provides an exceptional view, and it brings me immense joy when I witness our guests moved by this breathtaking sight upon entering our hotel. Please visit and witness this beautiful scenery for yourself!
