Niseko Village on Japan's northern island of Hokkaido, has quietly become legendary among the skiing cognoscenti. Though already well known as the powder mecca of Japan domestically, it was only in the 1990s that a pioneering group of Australian skiers explored the area and murmurs began circulating of a relatively untapped skiing Shangri-La.

Today, the resort has earned a reputation as one of the premier powder mecca in the world and an all-season destination, a far cry from its humble roots. Niseko Village is centrally located within the Niseko United ski area and accesses its inter-linked ski resorts, boasting a combined 2,191 acres of skiable terrain, an international snow school, award-winning hotels with spa and onsen facilities, a dining and retail village hub, luxury residences, an outdoor nature park and two world-class golf courses. Any future development phases will be outlined with conscious awareness of integrating nature with the authenticity, character and culture of the area.


Niseko Village is well served by Sapporo's New Chitose Airport (CTS), the largest commercial airport in Hokkaido, operating a large number of both domestic and international flights on a daily basis. A wide selection of transportation choices to access Niseko Village is available as below:
