They are self-contained, so you have the accommodation to yourself and access to services and amenities like a hotel!

Activities in the Area 

Skiing and snowboarding in Niseko is a must for avid winter sports fanatics, one of the top locations on every ski enthusiast’s bucket list with options like heli-skiing, back mountain skiing, and much more. Sure, skiing might be the most popular activity, but that’s not all Niseko has to offer as a winter resort. Niseko boasts some of the best snow in the world, and it can be enjoyed both on and off-mountain. Niseko also has excellent snow-shoeing and snowmobiling. Everywhere you go in Niseko, you can enjoy the winter wonderland in awe. The views and scenery are breathtaking; Niseko even has its own Mount Fuji volcanic mountain, Mount Yotei.

Do you prefer a holiday with more relaxation than adventure? Or do you love a good wind-down after a day on the slopes? Niseko is well known for its high-quality onsen hot springs. Soak in delicious natural springs surrounded by the Niseko snowy landscape. Enjoy some pampering in one of the many luxury spas, join a yoga class, or indulge in a massage and other wellness packages offered. 

In the summer, appreciate Niseko as a Japanese rural town with an international spin to explore. Find many outdoor activities and visit the local Shiribestu River, one of Japan’s cleanest rivers for swimming, fishing, rafting, and kayaking. Savor the fresh local produce and enjoy the beautiful, temperate weather. Summer in Japan without humidity? Sounds amazing!

Accommodation Around the Niseko Area

If you prefer a more private, secluded location, check out their contemporary chalet, private houses, or their villa: Villa Rusutsu.

COVID-19 Measures

Niseko Portfolio has taken special measures throughout its properties for guests to feel safe and comfortable. Besides enhanced cleaning in accommodations, digital concierge information instead of printed and other general precautions, they are also striving to eliminate as much face to face contact as possible. With a move towards self-check-in, guests can get themselves settled and call for assistance if need be.
