ABOUT Niseko

Dec - April

Niseko is located on the North Island of Hokkaido and is comprised of four resorts on the one mountain, Niseko Annupuri. Niseko is arguably the most well known ski resort in Japan and is renowned for some of the driest, lightest powder in the world, averaging over 15 metres each season. Niseko also attracts visitors because it has some of the best après and dining options out of all Japan resorts, with a variety of western and Japanese options. Niseko is becoming a place for the more affluent skier with more and more luxury chalets and hotels opening each year, however there are still some good value lodges and hotels available.
