Niseko, Aspen of Asia
Strictly speaking, Niseko itself is a quiet town nestled in the folds of the valley, hidden from the slopes that are the focus of all the excitement. It has given its name though to the area, incorporating the bustling hub of Hirafu, where much of the accommodation, dining and other resources are focused, as well as the resort areas of Hanazono, Grand Hirafu, Annupuri and Niseko Village.
Come home to Higashiyama
Secluded and wooded, the hamlet of Higashiyama is home to the resort of Niseko Village, where you’ll find JNW’s SnowDog Village and SnowDog Chalets with Raku Ichi Residences in nearby Annupuri. It’s a quieter spot, off the main road but the ski field’s lowest lifts lie just a short walk through the trees meaning ski-in access in the winter.
