Paradise Chalet is located right on the mountain, in the cottage area above the Paradise Ski Run (altitude of 1,200m). It's a lovely place to stay, especially for hardcore skiers who want to head outside and make first tracks...
This is lodge-style self contained accommodation. You will need to stock up on supplies before heading up to the chalet. Groceries can be purchased from the supermarket next to Iiyama station (recommended) or at the small supermarket in Nozawa close to the check-in location (Address Nozawa).
The only way up to the chalet is via the Hikage gondola. The last gondola up is at 3:30pm (4:00pm later in the season). The only way down is also via gondola or to ski/snowboard. The chalet is about 500m from the gondola across a snowfield. Ideally, you would traverse the snowfield on skis or a snowboard; or with notice, you can borrow snowshoes.
A wooden stairway takes you to the second floor and a large landing area leading to all the rooms. There are two queen sized bedrooms, one with a small study area. The middle room has twin beds. The fourth room holds a full sized bunk bed. There is also a small cot-room suitable for a child. All rooms have splendid forest or meadow views.
