Down Day? We’ve got you covered. Your holiday doesn’t have to revolve around the snow if you don’t want it to. We can organise customised tours for you that include a variety site seeing and activity based fun.

Whether you’re young at heart looking for excitement in the form of go-karting or a trip to Round 1 (a 5 story game centre in Nagano); or if you are looking for a more cultural experience, we can do tours ranging from a trip to the Snow Monkey onsen, Zenkoji Temple or Matsumoto Castle.

Places to see and things to do include:

  • Snow Monkey Onsen
  • Sushi train
  • Shopping trip to Nagano city
  • Sake tasting
  • Go-karting
  • Round 1 game centre
  • Zenkoji Temple
  • Matsumoto Castle

The Choice is yours! For more information about the Snow Monkeys click here.


  • Villa Z was cozy and well appointed with everything we needed for our 6 day stay (including Netflix for the kids!) The car is a huge bonus and gave us the opportunity to explore a number of resorts within and beyond the Hakuba Valley and made dining out, shopping and our visit to the Onsen easy. Tony is the perfect host - wonderfully accommodating and focused on ensuring you have a great stay. We were grateful for the orientation tour and bus drop off. Highly recommended!

  • Awesome accommodation, service, local knowledge/recommendations on skiing/snowboarding, restaurants, travel options, and everything Hakuba. We will be staying at BDI again!!!

  • Tony was absolutely the perfect host, this accommodation totally exceeded our expectation and nothing was ever too much. Tony went over and above to accommodate our family and we could not have asked for a better host. I was a little unsure about the the villa accommodating us and our 2 teenage sons but it was absolutely fine - we have already booked our trip for 2020!! Having the car was a complete game changer and allowed us to ski all of the slopes with ease.

  • Tony is an awesome host! He showed us around, gave us awesome tips on what to do and where to eat. Having the van made everything so easily accessible and the Villa was epic!
