THE GREEN LEAF STORY


Located at the base of Mount Niseko Annupuri in Japan, The Green Leaf Niseko Village lies in the heart of Niseko Village, an internationally acclaimed powder mecca and a summer destination for diverse outdoor pursuits. The hotel refurbishment has produced stunning results, garnering awards and accolades since its launch in 2010. Orchestrated by award-winning New-York based firm Champalimaud Design, renowned for creating distinctive interiors that reflect their unique setting, The Green Leaf Niseko Village reflects everything an all-season break should stand for.

Inspired by a fusion of world-class design, local artistry and breathtaking scenery, the 200-room destination hotel provides ski-in ski-out access during winter and a convenient base to explore the great outdoors during summer, tranquil spa and natural onsen facilities and a fantastic variety of bar and dining options featuring local seafood and seasonal Hokkaido produce. The hotel embraces creative touches by Emi Shiratori, a renowned local graphic artist whose trademark hand-drawn style breathes life and warmth throughout the spaces.

Let your hair down after an exhilarating day at Tomioka White lounge and bar, a vivacious scene for coffee, cocktails or snacks by the signature fireplace. Retreat to a sanctuary of therapeutic hot spring waters surrounded by pine trees to relax or enjoy indulgent spa treatments.

ABOUT NISEKO VILLAGE

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 where deep and dry Hokkaido powder blankets the slopes every year; an amazing 18 metres annually. 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. Niseko Village skiers and snowboarders enjoy an abundance of runs, on and off piste, and a host of winter activities such as snowmobile adventures, snow rafting, reindeer sledding and First Tracks Cat Skiing. Lessons for all levels of snowboarding and skiing abilities are available at the Niseko Village Snow School. In summer, snowboards and skis are kept and the resort transforms into a popular destination with two highly acclaimed golf courses including one designed by Arnold Palmer, an outdoor Pure at Niseko Village nature park and a host of active pursuits, and where fields and local farmers’ markets explode in riotous colour. Niseko Village includes award-winning hotels with spa and onsen facilities, a dining and retail village hub and luxury residences. Any future development phases will be outlined with conscious awareness of integrating nature with the authenticity, character and culture of the area.
