NISEKO YOU & YUKI IS NOT CURRENTLY OPERATING
Niseko You & Yuki is a cute little cottage that is centrally located and has a variety of accommodation options. The three storey house has three separate apartments, one on each floor. The top two apartments have three bedrooms, while the basement level has two. They were renovated in 2008 and are a comfortable budget accommodation option. There are huge soft comfortable lounges in the upper two apartments which are a great place to relax at the end of a long day on the mountain.
The kitchens have are fully equipped with everything required to make a meal, but really you’re probably only going to want to cook basic meals here – breakfasts, lunches and preparing the odd basic dinner. Most of the time you’ll be eating out on the hill for lunch – you can get a curry rice or bowl of noodles for under Y1000 or $10 USD; and for dinner you can get even better food for not much more. Pick up the Wine & Dine guide or check out the Powderlife restaurant directory and if you’re on a budget choose wisely and you could have some do some seriously great eating on a shoestring budget.
You & Yuki also comes with laundry facilities including washer and dryer, and also a ski storage and drying room.
Niseko You & Yuki Accommodation
There is a range of bedroom options here. Some of the bedrooms have double beds, while some have bunks. Each apartment sleeps six to eight people. The bedrooms have open Ikea hanging racks and drawers which are very handy for keeping your clothes out of the way. Most bedrooms have ensuites with great showers.
Niseko You & Yuki Location
Niseko You & Yuki is located in the middle of Hirafu Lower Village. It’s possible to walk to the lifts, and in ski boots will take you probably 15 minutes or so, or a little longer with kids. However you don’t want to waste your energy walking up the hill – jump on the free shuttle bus which stops just 50m from the house and let it chauffeur you up the hill and to the lift of your choice in speed and style.
While the lower village is a more budget option than the middle and upper villages, simply because it’s a few metres further from the lifts, it’s actually a really great place to stay. Just 100m walk from the house is Yukoro Onsen hot spring baths. For just 600 yen you can partake in one of the Japanese people’s most sacred traditions – soaking in an outdoor onsen surrounded by mountains of snow, while fresh powder falls all around. You might enjoy it so much that you mightn’t even need the showers at home – an onsen a day is a great way to sooth those aches and pains away!
