Niseko Resort Information

Niseko ski resort, Hokkaido is the most popular Japan resort among worldwide skiers and guests. For powder lovers, Niseko Japan is the best pick for a ski holiday since it continually snows. Niseko suits skiers of all capacities. The runs are perfect for families, amateurs, and intermediates. Both off-piste and outside the boundaries riding is allowed. Niseko stands out from numerous Japanese ski resorts for its blend of both tree and alpine skiing.


Fair weather skiers may dislike Niseko as seeing the sun between snow storms may be days/weeks  apart and it has a frosty climate in the pinnacle of winter, however, it's this climate that brings the marvelous powder.

Niseko has four interconnected zones: Niseko Village (Higashiyama), Annupuri; Hanazono and Hirafu. The ski resort of Moiwa is neighboring but a different lift ticket is needed.

Niseko, is situated 100km southwest of New-Chitose International Airport and Sapporo. It is close to Mt Yōtei (the "Mt. Fuji of Hokkaido"), an immaculate spot to catch all the snow.

A shuttle transport or a door-to-door transfer is the ideal way to reach Niseko from the airport or Sapporo. This transfer is included in packages offered by Liquid Snow Tours.

A variety of Niseko lodging is available including, pensions, hotels, independent condominiums, apartments, chalets, and houses. Some properties are ski-in-ski-out. However, numerous require a shuttle transport or walk to reach ski area.

Niseko has the best restaurants and nightlife of all the ski resorts in Japan. There are Niseko restaurants over all resort areas, however, most are in Hirafu. Hirafu is the core of the lively nightlife that Niseko is acclaimed for. There may be a few unruly Aussies (and Chinese) hanging about late during the evening. If your area after a quieter holiday we recommend, Hanazono , Annupuri or Niseko Village.

If you’re anxious about going in a foreign place, Niseko serves worldwide travelers. Correspondence is much simpler for English explorers than at other resorts. Most staff is English speaking at the restaurants and accommodation, restaurants have English menus and signs around the resort is in both English and Japanese.
