Technically “townhouses”, Miyabi and its other half Tsubaki are more like two large, luxury alpine chalets joined at the hip. Together, the building is called Ebisu Chalets, named after luxury shopping and entertainment district Ebisu in Tokyo, also home to the very palatable Yebisu Beer. Like its namesake, Miyabi and its twin are big, bold and luxurious, and influenced by traditional Japanese and modern Western elements.

The foreign developers wanted to ensure this wasn’t just a cookie-cutter alpine chalet from North America plonked into a Japanese setting. They wanted to retain the space and comfort of their Western counterparts while ensuring visitors knew they were in Japan. The zen garden with bamboo water feature at the entrance is a nice start, with traditional wall rendering designs, paper “shoji” sliding screen doors, and liberal use of local timber including the much sought-after fragrant hinoki (Japanese cypress).

Miyabi is a 4-bedroom chalet sleeping up to 10 people, with one handy bunk room consisting of two sets of spacious, high-quality bunk beds – suitable for big kids and small.

All rooms have ensuites – and particularly impressive ones at that. Stunning tile work that looks as impressive as it feels underfoot, open showers, wooden benchtops, stone sinks, and most spectacularly, fragrant hinoki bathtub in the master bedroom.

The cooking quarters is a cook’s kitchen, with generous central timber island bench, and stainless steel benches, cupboards, and appliances surrounding. The island bench features bar seating and is right alongside an eight-person dining table.

Miyabi enjoys a framed view of Mt Yotei throughout the living and dining area, courtesy of floor-to-ceiling windows.

Miyabi
Location

SETTING / ATMOSPHERE

Miyabi is located towards a bottom corner of the quiet Lower Hirafu Village, surrounded by a range of chalets, cottages and older pensions.

LIFTS / TRANSPORT

The lifts are a long walk, but the free village shuttle bus stop is just a few metres from the front door, and the chalet comes with free 4WD van rental (please confirm at time of booking). Parking is free and easy at the base of all the lifts, so driving your spacious van is a good option.

RESTAURANTS / BARS

There are three or four very nice Lower Village restaurants within 100m or so walk from Miyabi, as well as the famous Gyu+ (Fridge Door Bar). Parking at middle and upper village restaurants at night can sometimes be a little tricky, so possibly the best option is to catch a taxi or the free shuttle (until 9pm).

    Beautiful, spacious with all the modern luxuries. We have stayer here for at leave 5 times. A no doubt it will not be our last. Terrific location close to onsens, restaurants and the slopes. Kitchen area is designed for entertainment and relaxing over a nice glass of wine. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms are out of this world.

    The place is well designed taking the best from Japanese and western designs.

    The staff at the Niseko Company ensure your stay is pleasant.

    Will be back.
