TravelPost Category - TravelTravel - Post Category - By CountryBy Country

Ski bunnies take note: Hakuba is just a bullet train ride away from Tokyo, here’s where to stay this winter

The fab folks of TheLuxeNomad.com already shared their top 5 family-friendly villas in Niseko, Japan but there’s another Japanese winter wonderland you might like even better: Hakuba. Located on Japan’s main island of Honshu, Hakuba is just a bullet train ride away from Tokyo, making it a relatively accessible destination for Singapore-based travellers. Host to the 1998 Winter Olympic Games, Hakuba is known for its incredible snowfall, unparalleled terrain, and a town with lots to keep the kiddos entertained: English-speaking ski schools, soba noodle making and origami folding classes, and the famed Jigokudani Monkey Park where you can see wild monkeys soaking in a natural hot spring!

Ready to book your plane tickets? Below are TheLuxeNomad.com’s top picks for family-friendly ski chalets and hotels in Hakuba.

WE BELIEVE WORKING PARENTS MAKE GREAT PARENTS. A 2015 Harvard Business School study of girls with working moms in 24 countries across the globe found that they grew up to have more successful careers themselves. And another HBS study found in 2018 that kids with two working parents grew up to be *just* as happy as kids with a stay-at-home parent. In short: if working makes you happy, mama, do it! And let go of the #momguilt, because a happy and fulfilled mama = happy kids. Of course, having the flexibility to work near your kids - and for them to see you on the job - has benefits for everybody; whether you're nursing your baby or telling each other about your mornings, we're grateful for a family-friendly co-working space like @trehausco. - Kate McFarlane, Senior Editor⠀

WE BELIEVE IN TEACHING TEAMWORK. Our world and our future are highly unpredictable. Technology is advancing so rapidly that we don't know what our world will look like in ten years let alone 20 years. Our children will also face dramatic environmental and political changes. So how do we prepare them for such an unpredictable future? #Teamwork. Learning to work as part of a team helps develop many social skills such as communication, empathy, patience, tolerance and collaboration. These are the skills that our children will need more than any others. - Emilie De Cannart, Managing Director, Sassy Media Group⠀
