About Yuki-Jo

Positioned in the centre of the world-famous powder snow ski slopes of Furano, Yuki-Jo ski Lodge brings an exciting and luxurious new dimension to Furano's existing accommodation offerings.

Yuki-Jo was conceptualised and created by a small group of Western Australian business leaders and friends who became captivated with Furano over several ski trips to Japan and decided to build a dedicated, world-class ski lodge for their friends, family and other travellers from Australia, New Zealand, Japan and around the world to enjoy.

Completed in July 2008, Yuki-Jo features nine designer bedrooms, private onsen and sauna, interior lift, wine cellar, traditional Japanese gardens, top-of-the-range appliances, expansive storage and state-of-the-art electronics; including blue ray DVD recorders, plasma TVs and a panoramic viewing lounge.
