Red Warehouse Myoko: Overview
Red Warehouse in Akakura Onsen, Myoko is a funky family ski lodge in the very heart of the ski village. Formerly a company retreat known as Akakura Kogen Lodge the property is now updated with communal self contained facilities, private showers and modern toilets. Red Warehouse is a friendly Australian ski club style but with a Japanese twist. Guests can ski into our car park from Akakura Onsen or Akakan Resorts.

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…
