The lodge is the perfect accommodation to enjoy Niseko at any time of year, not just the winter. Of course, for the ski season there is a ski drying and storage room just off the genkan (front entrance) and it’s only a 10-minute walk to the Hirafu gondola, making it the perfect lodge for powder hounds. For those who prefer the warmer months, it’s the ideal setting for outdoor entertaining on the large deck, overlooking the landscaped gardens. For the golf enthusiast it is convenient for local golf courses.

The property features a gourmet kitchen, for those nights you prefer to stay in and cook your own meal (or have the local gourmet caterers come in to cook for you). There’s also a spacious open-plan living and dining area, complete with vaulted ceilings and a natural stone fireplace, the perfect spot to relax by the fire on those chilly winter nights. While you do that, the kids can play in the media/games room, which offers a 46” plasma screen, both English and Japanese satellite TV channels, multi-region DVD player, CD player and iPod connections. There’s also a laundry with washing machine and dryer. What more could you ask for?

The property has 5-bedrooms, one on the main floor and the rest on the upper floor. The bedding can be either double or twin. There are four bathrooms, two of which are ensuite. Two of the bathrooms also have bathtubs, perfect for a relaxing soak to ease those aching muscles after a long day skiing or boarding! The gourmet open-plan kitchen leads on to the spacious lounge and dining area. Perfect for nights when you want to stay in and cook for yourself. The house provides stunning views of Mt Yotei as well as the Hirafu Resort ski area.

Located in the Izumikyo 1 area, the house is not too far out of the main village yet is much quieter, giving you the change to truly relax and enjoy the natural surroundings.


It’s only a short walk into town, a 10-minute walk to the Hirafu Gondola and if you don’t feel like walking there’s a shuttle stop only 200m from the house.


You’re only a short walk or a quick shuttle trip into the main village, but there are also plenty of restaurants and cafes located within Izumikyo itself.
