Niseko condo description
Niseko is located on the North island of Hokkaido, Japan - near the international airport of Sapporo. It was originally a thermal spring spa resort known only to the local Japanese, but was eventually discovered by outsiders looking for the perfect snow experience. Niseko is now famous around the world for its exceptional powder snow. From December to April each year the resort is covered in a blanket of up to 15 metres of pristine powder snow. There are over 50 kms (30 miles) of groomed slopes across four linked resorts: Hirafu, Hanazono, An'nupuri and Higashiyama.
Niseko is now one of the fastest growing ski resorts in the world, and at the heart of Niseko is Hirafu, the best appointed village in the area. With its unique Japanese character and mix of international influences, Hirafu offers an experience not found anywhere else in the world. English is widely spoken as the resort was founded primarily by Australians looking for powder snow in their Summer period.
Fabulous food, fascinating culture and fantastic snow. Go ahead and do something different this year – SKI JAPAN!
During the rest of the year (May-November), Niseko is well known for outdoor pursuits like golf, white water rafting, fly fishing, road cycling, mountain biking, and hiking. With its mild temperatures, Niseko provides the perfect escape from the humid summer experienced by many Asian cities. With its wealth of activities, delectable seasonal produce, renowned hot springs and breathtaking scenic beauty, Niseko offers an exceptional destination year round. Niseko has it all.

All round great stay
All round great stay
My wife, kids and I stayed at this Condo for just over a week and had a great time. Its very comfy with great views and amenities plus its close to lifts and restaurants. I've been to Niseko a few times and this was the most comfortable of all the Condos I've booked previously. The owner and staff are helpful too. Would recommend it to all.

Well maintained, secure property, with 24-hour service available. The owner was very helpful from setting up transportation to giving local recommendations. We hope to return soon!

Had a great stay in this apartment with my wife in March 2010. The Yama Shizen blocks are well-located for the slopes, comfortably fitted out and properly maintained. There are enough staff on hand to help out with any queries and there are good food options nearby too, especially Abu Cha II and Bang Bang.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I am in my 50's and live in Australia.
Why the Owner Chose Niseko:
I bought this apartment in Japan to take advantage of the amazing powder snow during the Australian Summer period (Dec-April) and because I really enjoy the Japanese cultural experience - especially the food! My teenage year old daughter also loves it.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Apart from the snow sports, there is nothing more enjoyable than soaking in a traditional Japanese onsen (natural thermal hot pools) followed by a traditional Japanese meal of sushi, teriyaki, yakitori, etc... The views of Mt. Youtei (an extinct volcano similar in size and shape to Mt Fuji) are spectacular.
