  • Description


    An Australian owned and operated lodge, bar and restaurant on the slopes of Madarao in Japan. Live and work a stones throw away from the lifts of this beautiful resort in the Japanese alps. All while meeting new friends that could last a lifetime. The lodge is a nine room Japanese timber style 250m from the lifts. It is very relaxed and homey. I am a 37 year old Australian that loves to travel the world and experience the culture in every country i go to. There will be a team of about 7 people working between the businesses with plenty of time to explore and experience what Japan has to offer.
