It is just near by the ski area, very convenience to go to the ski, you could just wear all the cloth need for ski then walk 2 minutes to the life area, buy the pass , take the cable then ski, you could also go to different ski track from each of the nearby hotel, that is very fun, we expect to play the easy one but finally, we ski down by the expert track,
Niseko snows a lot, and it takes a 20 min shuttle bus between different ski towns to the main city - Grand HIrafu, where most of the dining options/nightlife is at, So the best bet is to rent a serviced apartment to avoid those travelling.
Niseko is very geared to supporting and providing s great ski experience. Most facilities are easily accessable and the Japanese staff manning the sites are very helpful.
Rental a private car & use the GPS go to Harifu & town, Nightlife is very good. Good language skill at resturant, so dont worry about eating(but not cheap).
There have so many bar/pub
it's a great place for outdoor activities. it's also good for families with children to stay for a very relaxing summer vacation for at least 1-2 weeks.
not so good for young people who want shopping and night life.
Beside Ski, nothing can do during winter time travelling. Restaurants around ski area are expansive and need advance reservation!!
Travel by buses very easy but maybe online reservation could be advised. Not to be stuck at the airport waiting for the next one.
Airport is worth visiting especially with children
Nice, relax, scenic and friendly people especially for foreigner because there are many Australian skier and working staffs here
a wonderful ski town, plenty of non japanese food restaurants. Outdoor Onsen is to be enjoyed during ski season.
Niseko is not only wonderful in the winter time due to the amazing skiing, but stunningly beautiful in summer.
Great trout fishing, bike riding, golf and rafting over the summer months.
