Potato Lodge Niseko Twin Bedroom | Lower Hirafu

Why “potato”? Well when you get to Niseko you’ll realise potatoes are a big deal around these parts – it’s a famous potato farming region so you’ll see them everywhere… the town’s mascot is even a skiing potato!

The communal living area is a great place to spend your downtime. It looks out into snow-covered forest with plenty of comfortable lounges, or a sunken Japanese style dining table. The lounge has a TV and there is wireless internet so you can look up the snow forecast or post your pics to social media.

A lodge manager is onsite throughout your stay to help you with any requirements, there is a daily shuttle up the mountain to the lifts and they can provide meals on request as well as breakfast which is included in the price.

Potato Lodge has 5 twin rooms, 2 quad rooms and a dorm room sleeping six – either book the whole room for your group or book a single bed and share with others.

The bathrooms are shared but there is one for males and one for females and each has a traditional Japanese style bath. There is also laundry facilities including a dryer.

Potato Lodge


Potato Lodge is located on the western edge of Hirafu Lower Village in amongst other pensions lodges and chalets. Right next door the new Powder Room club is a party hotspot that some guests have said they can hear in their room, so do expect a bit of noise on-site.


The family lift is about a 10-15 minute walk up hill for those that want to warm up the legs. This lift takes you up to the base of the Ace Quad lift that will whip intermediate and advanced skiers further up the mountain. Or you can catch the free lodge shuttle or the free village shuttle which stops just near the lodge every 15 minutes or so.


There are no shortage of restaurants and bars in the vicinity of the lodge, including some great value traditional restaurants and the super cool Fridge Door Bar right next door. If you want to try the other bars and restaurants in town the free village shuttle runs until 9pm, so you can definitely get a lift up, and maybe enjoy a stroll through the snow covered village if you finish a little later in the evening.
