Shirokuma Chalets Living Area | Middle Hirafu

Shirokuma means “white bear”. While there aren’t any white bears in these parts – and all the Hokkaido Brown Bears will be hibernating in winter – this chalet took its name from the polar bear in the logo for Bundaberg Rum.

About 10 years old, the building is a mid-range modern apartment building by Niseko standards. It features a fully equipped modern kitchen with western appliances including wine cooler, and entertainment facilities including flat-screen TV, DVD player and free Wi-Fi.

The kitchen and dining area is a central feature of these apartments. Although there’s enough restaurants in Niseko to dine out every day of one or two winters, the kitchens in Shirokuma Chalets make providing any meals a breeze. There is plenty of bench space to prepare, open-plan layout and bar to enable socialising while cooking, and adjoining dining room with plenty of seating to cater for a small army of diners.

Shirokuma Chalets has 4 bedrooms, sleeping 2 or 3 people in each room, with allowance for 1 extra person on a futon bed in Shirokuma 1 for an additional charge. Each apartment has a master bedroom with ensuite. Shirokuma #1 has a total of 3 bathrooms, and Shirokuma #2 has 2 bathrooms.

Views are of the surrounding snow-covered neighbourhood of Middle Hirafu Village, while Shirokuma #1 enjoys views of Mt Yotei from the front of the apartment.
