Sakura Apartments are a block of 2-bedroom apartments located in Hirafu’s lower village. Each apartment sleeps up to five guests making them ideal for smaller to medium-sized families or groups.
Designed to the highest standards, Sakura Apartments have full concrete construction providing durability, sound-proofing and energy efficiency. The smooth exterior is painted vibrant blue adding stunning contrast against the pure white, snowy backdrop. All apartments come fully furnished and well equipped for a great snow holiday.
The open plan kitchen, dining and living area is a great space for entertaining guests, and features oak timber flooring and fished with touches of pale white and pink, the colours of Sakura (Japanese cherry blossoms). The cosy living area comprises two white leather couches and LCD flat-screen TV connected to Sky Satellite, offering 10 English-language channels including movies, news, documentaries and more. Apartments also have full laundry facilities including washing machine and clothes dryer.
The communal basement area houses a secure ski and snowboard storage area, which also has a drying room and a ski-tuning workshop with all necessary tools. To top it all off the apartments offer stunning views of Mt Yotei – Niseko’s own mini Mt Fuji!
Sakura Apartments Accommodation
Sakura Apartments are 2-bedroom apartments which sleep up to 5 people. All rooms offer twin bedding, making it great for groups of friends travelling together. The bedding in the master bedroom can be put together to make a double bed.
The L-shaped kitchen is modern and fully-equipped, featuring stainless steel bench tops and all the necessary appliances including cooktop, convection microwave and fridge – all labelled in English. The dining area seats four people at the dining table.
Sakura Apartments Location
Sakura Apartments are located in a quiet street in the lower village, offering a peaceful location but not sacrificing any of the convenience of upper-village living.
The closest lift would be the Ace Family Pair, which will take about 20 minutes to get to if walking, but less than 5 minutes on the free village shuttle bus, which is just a couple of minutes walk form the apartments. By shuttle, both the Ace Quad and Hirafu Gondola are also easily accessible.
There are some great restaurants and bars scattered throughout the lower village so you don’t have to head to the upper village for a top meal. In fact, one of Hirafu’s most popular restaurants, Rin, is right across the road! Be sure to make a reservation so you don’t miss out!
Just around the corner is Yukoro Onsen, a popular hot spring bath, which is the perfect way to end your day. The onsen water is mineral-rich and works wonders on tired, aching legs after a long day on the mountain. A soak in the outdoor bath is an experience you won’t soon forget.
