NISEKO - possibly the best resort in Japan
Made up of 5 linked ski resorts spread over a huge mountain, Niseko is a mecca for powder hounds and families.
With a rich variety of alpine bowls, gladed trees and epic side country off piste terrain, there is a reason for Niseko’s legendary ski status.
The accommodation options at Niseko are numerous and constantly getting better. From 5 star high end hotel / condo accommodation to cheerful guest houses and comfortable moderate apartments, there really is something for everyone in Niseko.
Don’t expect a Japanese cultural experience, but do expect fantastic service, efficient lift systems and great snow in Japan’s premier ski resort.
