Kiseki Bedroom | Upper Hirafu

Kiseki once was Happy Bell Cottages, one of the original simple old Japanese accommodation options in Hirafu. Its time was well and truly up so it was recently refurbished bringing it back to a modern standard with extremely comfortable furnishings and modern design and fittings.

There are three apartments in the building all are set over two levels – see the floorplans in the photo gallery for more details. The apartment designs have been really well thought out to maximise space and make for comfortable and convenient holiday living. The apartments come with full kitchens and everything required for cooking your average meal.

There is a ski storage area in the shared entrance. Each apartment has its own laundry facilities with washer and dryer as well as iron and ironing board – these may come in handy as two of Niseko’s Michelin-starred restaurants – Kamimura and Domus – are just three minute’s walk from the front door!

Setting / Atmosphere

Kiseki is located centrally in the middle of Upper Hirafu Village. Just a few minutes walk downhill is the main flat road through Hirafu, where there are convenience stores, a supermarket/deli, restaurants, bars, cafes and more. Just a few minutes walk in another direction across flat ground is the other main street Hirafu Zaka street), which runs up to the ski lifts.

Lifts / Transport

From either of nearby major streets you can catch the free shuttle bus to any lift in the village. The other option from here is to walk to Hirafu Zaka Street, cross the road and down the lane by Suiboku to the family lift and straight onto the slopes. Beginners and intermediates can spend their day here, and more advanced skiers can lift-hop their way up the hill from here.

Restaurants / Bars

There is great access to both major streets in Hirafu so all the best Restaurants, bars and stores are less than a 5 minute walk away. If that’s too far Wild Bill’s bar, Lava Lounge Pizza, Ryunabe and Mina Mina are just down the street and Jam Bar & Restaurant are just up. Several onsen (hot spring baths) are in strolling distance too – the closest one is at Hirafutei Prince Hotel just 50m or so up the hill (open to the public).

    The one bedroom apartment is cosy and comes with kitchenette and bunk bed in the main bedroom so it’s perfect for small families. Great location close to shops, restaurants and bars.
