Mt. Komorebi consists of three different neighborhoods.
Like its namesake, Wakaba is young, new, and bright as the leaves of a tree in early springtime. This small town is up-and-coming in the region, home to beautiful, sleek new homes and an attractive town center featuring Mt. Komorebi’s official mascot: Yamachan. Tourists of all ages can enjoy the Festival of Youth, or simply take in the neighborhood’s natural beauty.
Senbamachi, the town of a thousand leaves, is the oldest in the region. Many locals enjoy the town’s connection to nature, especially with the bamboo forests surrounding the town and unique spritely creatures that make a home in their leaves. It’s said that if you walk the local trails long enough, you’re bound to meet the guardians of the trees who reward those who love and respect their dwelling.
The true beauty of the countryside can be seen from Yukimatsu, named for its snow-covered pines. Located on the slopes of Mt. Komorebi, this area offers gorgeous vacation rentals, a variety of snow sports, untamed wilderness, and a peaceful Onsen Bathhouse getaway. Whether it’s relaxation in a hot spring, seeing the sights of the Snow Festival, or an exhilarating climb to Mt. Komorebi’s highest peak, this year-round snowy wonderland has something for everyone.
There are 15 lots in Mt. Komorebi, including 3 rental lots, 1 bar, 1 lounge, 1 onsen bathhouse, 6 residential lots, and 1 hidden lot.
All owned lots are considered households.

Mt. Komorebi Peak
Akiyama family 5-6-1 Shinronyoku
Jenna Akiyama, Kado Akiyama, Taku Akiyama, Miki Akiyama
The Akiyamas moved away from the hustle and bustle of the city to the quiet town where Kado was raised. The commute will be a sacrifice, but Jenna and Kado hope the close-knit community and beautiful natural atmosphere of the region will be worth it. Kado was surprised at the recent news that his childhood sweetheart, Megumi Ito had also moved back to Mt. Komorebi. He’d love nothing more to leave the past in the past, but the pieces of his broken teenaged heart are still tender.
Ito family 2-5-1 Wakabamori
Naoki Ito, Megumi Ito, Kiyoshi Ito, Nanami Ito
Megumi Ito grew up in Senbamachi. A gold medalist skier, she aims to give her children the same upbringing, but memories of an old flame might drive her to distraction. Naoki Ito is a former medalist himself. A calculating businessman, his controversial vision of Mt. Komorebi includes more tourism, more money, and modernization. Nanami and Kiyoshi have their parents’ athletic talent, but their hearts lie elsewhere. Nanami just wants to be a kid and Kiyoshi is crushing on more than the slopes…
Nishidake family 5-3-1 Shinrinyoku
Shigeru Nishidake, Sachiko Nishidake, Kaori Nishidake
Rumor says that the Nishidake family are sacred guardians of Mt. Komorebi. Indeed, Shigeru fumes over the Ito family’s local development plans. Sachiko, however, feels warmly toward Megumi due to an old friendship with the young woman’s mom. Plus, she knows what’s in her granddaughter’s heart… Kaori moved to Mt. Komorebi after losing her parents. She soon discovered two loves: the slopes, and the son of her grandfather’s sworn enemy! If she had one wish, she’d melt her grandfather’s hardened heart.
