Your hosts at Red Warehouse
Red Warehouse owners, Mami and Nic, have a long history in Myoko. Mami comes from a well known local family with deep roots in the Myoko tourist trade. Nic is the pioneer of Myoko’s contemporary foreign tourist boom, starting the popular Destination Myoko Kogen website in 2003 when no English information was available on the town and foreign visitors could maybe be counted on fingers and toes. They are happy to share their intimate local knowledge with guests to ensure you get the best possible Myoko experience!

A great central location
Red Warehouse enjoys one of the best locations in the village with lifts for both Akakura Onsen and Akakan Resort 2-3 minutes walk/ski from the front door. If guests choose to eat out some nights we are just a very short walk from most of the popular local restaurants. Guests can also just about ski down into Myoko Snowsports for their lessons (which we can arrange on your behalf as well as ski rentals). They also have child care available if needed at the Akakura Onsen shop which is a 2 minute walk away from the lodge. Check more location info here…
