SKI JAPAN - AWESOME POWDER SNOW!

Niseko Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Niseko is located on the North island of Hokkaido, Japan - near the international airport of Sapporo. It was originally a thermal spring spa resort known only to the local Japanese, but was eventually discovered by outsiders looking for the perfect snow experience. Niseko is now famous around the world for its exceptional powder snow. From December to April each year the resort is covered in a blanket of up to 15 metres of pristine powder snow. There are over 50 kms (30 miles) of groomed slopes across four linked resorts: Hirafu, Hanazono, An'nupuri and Higashiyama.

Niseko is now one of the fastest growing ski resorts in the world, and at the heart of Niseko is Hirafu, the best appointed village in the area. With its unique Japanese character and mix of international influences, Hirafu offers an experience not found anywhere else in the world. English is widely spoken as the resort was founded primarily by Australians looking for powder snow in their Summer period.

Fabulous food, fascinating culture and fantastic snow. Go ahead and do something different this year – SKI JAPAN!

During the rest of the year (May-November), Niseko is well known for outdoor pursuits like golf, white water rafting, fly fishing, road cycling, mountain biking, and hiking. With its mild temperatures, Niseko provides the perfect escape from the humid summer experienced by many Asian cities. With its wealth of activities, delectable seasonal produce, renowned hot springs and breathtaking scenic beauty, Niseko offers an exceptional destination year round. Niseko has it all.

Yama Shizen West is a premium alpine apartment located in the heart of Hirafu village, with premium access to the slopes, shopping, traditional public baths (onsens), and the finest restaurants. Yama Shizen West offers outstanding value and comfort for your stay.

I am in my 50's and live in Australia.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

I bought this apartment in Japan to take advantage of the amazing powder snow during the Australian Summer period (Dec-April) and because I really enjoy the Japanese cultural experience - especially the food! My teenage year old daughter also loves it.

Apart from the snow sports, there is nothing more enjoyable than soaking in a traditional Japanese onsen (natural thermal hot pools) followed by a traditional Japanese meal of sushi, teriyaki, yakitori, etc... The views of Mt. Youtei (an extinct volcano similar in size and shape to Mt Fuji) are spectacular.

Incredible apartment - unstoppable views

  • Submitted: Feb 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
We recently hired the whole apartment for a week and had an amazing experience. Having breakfast / afternoon tea with a large window view of the mountain is just amazing. The design is very stylish, and 'extras' include everything you would require,(ie hair dryer, ipod dock, cd player - even an Australian plug)

The owner of this property is extremely helpful and the help doesn't stop there, upon arrival the conceirge team will help you with anything else you require.

Only constructive comment is that the images online although great, don't do it justice, its so much better in real life!

Very happy to reccomend for any group of people ( or for a couple - who can hire part of the apartment)

Had a fantastic time at this apartment, very clean and modern and great location with views out of every window and a double aspect from the lounge which provides a great view of the slopes. The apartment is spacious (we had 4 adults and 3 kids and fitted easily, the 2 bathrooms plus extra toilet worked well) and is well located being only 5 minutes from the slopes. Tip for Aussie travelers, if you rent through Larry Adler they are only a 5 min walk from the apartment and provide free storage for skis/boots and are only 50m from the lifts so you can walk down with the kids in normal shoes (good, as village is very snowy) and not have to carry skis, get changed and then it's a very short walk to the lifts.

We had 2 families (4 adults & 3 children aged 8,9 & 12) spend a great week here. The snow was tremendous and the apartment was well located, comfortably furnished and well looked after. The 5 minute walk to the Family Lift was an easy start to the skiing day and the recent addition of an espresso bar in the lobby of the apartment building made for a convenient source of good, strong coffee. I have no hesitation in recommending this place for a Niseko base for skiing in the winter or summer pursuits.

My wife, kids and I stayed at this Condo for just over a week and had a great time. Its very comfy with great views and amenities plus its close to lifts and restaurants. I've been to Niseko a few times and this was the most comfortable of all the Condos I've booked previously. The owner and staff are helpful too.
Would recommend it to all.
