Multipurpose Facility

World class architect and University of Tokyo Professor, Kengo Kuma, designed the facility with the social mission of “connecting people to nature and to connecting people with each other” In line with this mission, Kuma designed a facility with three areas: retail and food, event space, and a recreational area. You can see other projects designed by Kuma here.


The atmosphere is rustic mountain aesthetic meets urban art museum. The interior is flooded with natural light and mountain views, earthy tones, and tall spacious ceilings. Outside the flowing iron black roof couples with the wooden lattice work to create a stunning visual.


It’s a fun place to spend an afternoon enjoying a Starbucks coffee and taking in one of the most spectacular views in all of Hakuba.

Snow Peaks Restaurant

The restaurant menu was created Hideki Ishikawa of the famous Japanese restaurant “Kagurazaka Ishikawa” which has won three Michelin stars. Ishikawa’s concept for the restaurant is to use fresh local ingredients to better connect visitors to the surrounding environment.

Snow Peaks offers lunch and dinner with a wide range of wines and a special BBQ set that can enjoyed “picnic style” in the grassy area.
