Madarao Kogen ski resort is a powder skiing heaven nestled amongst Nagano’s more well-known ski resorts. Madarao mountain has received 24 feet of snow in under two months of the year in every ski season of the past six years. The Madarao snow report is remarkably consistent - during the peak of winter in late January and early February the snow is just non-stop!

All of our rooms have been newly renovated and appointed in a modern Japanese concept, with a combination of traditional styles and modern conveniences. Several rooms include a private en suite, please check the room descriptions if this is suits you. Our hotel features traditional shared bathing facilities for all of our guests to enjoy an authentic Japanese bath experience.

Raicho Lodge Madarao is happy to offer an excellent in-house dining experience for the winter season.

The food showcases a balance of Japanese and European techniques that enhance the fresh, local produce for your dining pleasure.
