Ori Night View | Lower Hirafu

Designed by the internationally acclaimed Nakayama Architects, Ori is a modern Japanese building which merges traditional aesthetic concepts with an industrial finishing element. Polished concrete and black leather feature highly, along with beautiful lines tracing the shared living areas and throughout the entirety of this outstanding three-story property, which is serviced by a private elevator.

Internal Japanese gardens and golden teak paneling elevate the boutique nature of Ori from top to bottom. Full glass-walled windows blur the barriers between inside and outside, inviting Niseko’s vistas to play a key role in the design of the building as well as the guests experience within. A chic fireplace softens the living room area, which features a huge sofa area for evenings of relaxed calm. Complete with wireless internet, Apple TV plus Netflix and a stunning Bose sound system, Ori’s Western consideration of appliance standard matches the expectation that its beautiful aesthetic sets.

This property contains three en-suite bedrooms in the Western style, along with one en-suite tatami (traditional Japanese woven straw mat) room. In addition, two separate (smaller) tatami rooms are included, as well as a bunk room. In total, there are twelve beds and three Japanese futons available within Ori – and the configuration of these sleeping arrangements can be discussed on request. Another convenient extra with this building is that a nine-seater 4WD van is included with any stay.

Hirafu Village makes up one out of four key mountain base areas within the Niseko United ski area. Ori is situated at the bottom of the village, in peaceful and prestigious surroundings. Below is a cliff that offers views across the pristine forests of Hirafu, looking towards majestic Mt Yotei.


It is an uphill walk of around fifteen minutes to the ski lifts, if that is too far there is a free shuttle bus stop is only 200m away from the property. And if there is a driver in the group, a 4WD van is included with the property to get you to the nearest (or the furthest!) hills with ease.


The Lower Hirafu location is home to a selection of bars, restaurants and Natural Onsens (Hot Spring Baths.) Check out hidden izakaya Yo, local favorite Ebisutei or sought-after Rin Izakaya for delicious lower-village dining.
