Kozue Dining Area | Middle Hirafu

Kozue means treetops, and was named so for the birch forest alongside the building through which guests can gaze out through at the snowbound scenery. In fact the natural environment surrounding of the building is the guiding influence on its design. The architect focused on ensuring there was a strong sense of connection from the surrounding landscape and the apartments within. Floor-to-ceiling double-glazed windows and natural materials such as oak flooring and stone tiling complete the warm and elegant setting.

All apartments include ovens, cooktops and standard cooking facilities. Large internet TVs with DVD players and fast wireless internet ensure guests can stay entertained and connected with the outside world. Under floor heating ensures all rooms and areas of the apartments are uniformly warm. The apartments have laundry facilities including dryers, and the building has a drying room and secure storage for skis and boots. Most apartments have balconies although you might not spend much time out there in winter!

Studio apartments sleep two plus one extra on a futon; the 1.5-bedroom apartments sleep two plus two extra on a fold out bed in the lounge; while two and three bedroom apartments can sleep two people per room, plus two extra on futons. Bedrooms can be configured as double or twin singles.

Kozue
Location

Setting / Atmosphere

Kozue is located right near the top of Middle Hirafu Village – just 100m from several restaurants, bars and cafes, a deli supermarket and a convenience store.

Lifts / Transport

Just a couple of hundred metres further along flat ground is the Ace family lift, from where you can lift-hop your way up the mountain if you’re an intermediate or advanced skier. The other option is to jump on the free shuttle that runs every 10 to 15 minutes from morning till night and get whisked up to any of the main lifts in the village or the gondola. The stop is just 50m or so along the main road. When finished skiing at the end of the day, the easiest route home is to ski down to the bottom of the family lift and walk, or if you haven’t got any energy left you can catch your desired form of transport home to Kozue from here.

Restaurants / Bars

With Hirafu’s most beloved/notorious drinkeries less than five minutes away Kozue is a perfect gem for those looking to really enjoy the night life in the village.
Find Niseko’s top restaurants – Kamimura, Ezo Seafoods, the Barn to name a few – on Momiji Street just 2 blocks away.

    This was our second stay at Kozue and we were here for 6 nights from January 28 to February 3, 2017! Once again, we left Kozue in awe. From all the Nisade properties that I have stayed in the past 10 years, this winter 2016-2017 Kozue team is on a mission to outperform.

    Everything about the apartment is the same as our February 2016 stay from the abundance of luxury technology with excellent sound proofing to under-floor heating in living, bedroom and bathroom with direct elevator access.

    Prior to the trip, Andy Yu from Reservations made sure that my requests from previous years are replicated and he also coordinated with Housekeeping and Front Desk prior to arrival. I am truly grateful to Andy for his excellent memory and follow-up!

    What truly stands out this season is the Kozue concierge team this winter! From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by Cliff and lovely Anna. During our stay, Cliff went above and beyond with all our transfer requests. He is always a phone call away to drive us anywhere in Hirafu and also unlimited rides to Kutchan. He is very helpful, punctual, positive and made sure that there is always someone who will pick us up within 5 minutes after the transfer request was made. This is also the benefit for guests of Kozue, Terrazze, and Hakuchōzan who has access to a fleet of Nisade vans to take care of all your transfer needs. It was so convenient and especially during the snow storm that we encountered in late January! We were also very grateful that Cliff took the initiative to wait for us while we collected our snowboards from Rhythm and he also returned our snowboards at the end of our stay. Anna is very friendly and took the initiative to call us every morning to check on our transfer needs for the day. Sam is equally delightful driving us from one destination to another and he recommended us various cafes that were truly delightful.

    Thank you so much for making our stay heavenly! It’s the perfect haven in Niseko and we are so happy we are coming back to Kozue this winter 2017-2018!

    We stayed here not knowing what to expect but I couldn’t have been more happier with how everything went. Our apartment was very cozy with a fireplace and comfortable living area. The staff was amazing! Cliff the concierge made sure we had a ride everywhere we went. They even carried our equipment to the lifts! Sam helped us out as well driving all the way Hanazono even for just one run then returning our equipment for us afterwards. Anna was also very helpful and sweet. We have come to niseko once a year for the past three years and this was by far my favorite place so far. Will definitely be back.

    This was our first visit to Niseko and Kozue made it an experience to remember. Prior to our arrival to departing niseko, everything was organised and we were well taken care off.

    Cliff was so helpful in every aspect from taking us (and our skis) right to the lift and picking us from any location throughout the day. When it was out of hours, we could call upon the Vale to handle our transportation. Anna and Sam also stood out as they were so helpful and friendly. They help organise ski lessons, restaurant bookings, airport transfers and lift passes.

    One small minor negative was that there was no safe in the room but we were allowed to keep valuables with the reception.

    All in all, it was a fantastic stay (made by the team) and we would definitely be back!
