OUR LOCATION

A mere 2.5 hour drive from New Chitose Airport (Sapporo). Niseko is off the beaten track enough to still be referred to as ‘well-kept secret’.

The wider area referred to as Niseko encompasses six individual ski areas; Hirafu, Higashiyama, Annupuri, Hanazono, Moiwa and Weiss. The main four areas; Annupuri, Higashiyama, Hirafu and Hanazono are connected to one another and amazingly can be accessed with a singular ski pass.

Also Niseko is close to many other Resorts like Rusutsu and Kioro , day trips from Hirafu-Niseko are daily and approximately $70 including bus return trip .

 

Ideally located for your winter or summer holidays: it is 50 meters from the shuttle stop of which many shuttles circulate the village to the Gondola at the base of the Hirafu Mountain every 15 mins and takes 2-4  mins . Very easy , very convenient.  Also the shuttles can take you around the village at any time and drop off at many stops . Futher information look at

5 minute walk uptown to the main street , plenty of great architecture to look at on the walk and great shops with quaint Bars and Restaurants 

200m from local Onsen (volcanic hot spring bath).

 

200mtr from many restaurants and bars.

But yet when your wanting your privacy and quiet we are located ideally just away enough but still in the main ski village .
