Ginsetsu exudes the quiet elegance of Japan, with a generous pinch of modern comfort added to the mix. The rooms are done in soothing tones of white and natural wood, with two tatami rooms only adding to the Japanese ambiance.
The open-plan Japanese style living room is on the first floor. The large windows are a constant reminder of the beauty outside and offer gorgeous Mount Yotei views. The high vaulted wooden ceiling adds to the alpine ambience. Comfy white sofas and a sleek flatscreen TV allow guests to chill out and relax after a busy day out on the slopes.
The kitchen and dining area are incorporated into the light-filled living room. The wooden dining table is flanked by two benches and can easily seat the whole group for hearty meals. The open-plan kitchen offers all the essentials needed for preparing meals and snacks. If you prefer, the living room also includes a more relaxed tatami dining lounge with a low table and chairs.
Ginsetsu has three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a double bed, while the two guest bedrooms are traditional tatami style rooms with two single futons in each. All three bedrooms are located on the ground floor.

Ginsetsu is a three-bedroom chalet that’s built over two levels. The ground floor houses the master bedroom and two tatami style guest bedrooms. The living and dining areas are located upstairs.
Your stay is made enjoyable by the professional staff who have been professionally trained and will do their utmost to please with their warm and friendly hospitality.
The chalet’s experienced and knowledgeable manager is responsible for the overall operation of the chalet. The property manager will oversee and coordinate the staff and property and assist you during your stay.
Our chalets in Japan often have housekeeping 1 – 2 times per week depending on the property. Each chalet will have their own cleaning schedule.
Gintetsu is located amongst a collection of other similar large houses on the border between Middle and Lower Hirafu Village, a short walk from the centre of town. Being so well situated in the village, guests are within walking distance from convenience stores and a good cross-section of Hirafu’s famous restaurants and bars. And with the shuttle bus so close to you, the village (and the slopes!) is your oyster.
