Kitsune House’s large living area with high ceilings, large windows and balcony make it a luxurious place to relax at the end of a day in the snow. Located in a quiet street of prestigious Lower Hirafu, it’s also good for kids to play outside, with space alongside the house to build snowmen and snow caves.
Built new in 2018 with all the comforts of modern Japanese chalet accommodation, Kitsune House will appeal to those looking for a mid-to-high-end chalet within walk and bus distance to restaurants, bars and the slopes. The living area on the top floor features lofted ceilings thanks to the peaked sloping roof, which will exude a feeling of space and peace for guests.
The chalet will be a modern alpine style with Japanese character. A fully-featured kitchen means entertaining and preparing meals is well-catered for. It is well equipped with modern entertainment requirements and of course WiFi internet. It comes with a drying room for storing and drying snow gear, laundry and garage if you’d like to hire a car.

Note: room is tight with four adults.
SETTING / ATMOSPHERE
Kitsune House is located in a quiet street in Lower Hirafu, an area with plenty of new multi-million dollar chalets, a few older-style pensions and lodges, and some newer condominiums. There is plenty of snow piles up all around the village down here, making it the perfect environment for kids to play around the house.
LIFTS / TRANSPORT
There is a free shuttle bus stop straight at the bottom of Kitsune House’s street – literally 50m walk away. This will have you to the lifts in about 5 minutes or less, and can also take you elsewhere around the village. It’s possible to walk from here into the heart of the village – probably 20 minutes in ski/board boots or 10 in walking boots.
RESTAURANTS / BARS
There are some of Niseko’s most laid back and authentic little bars and restaurants down in this part of the village. Be sure to try to book ahead at Rin, which is the closest restaurant to your house just 100m walk away in one of the back streets. Otherwise walk a little further to the Fridge Door Bar, Ebisutei or Coto Bar.
