4 Bedroom Luxury Property, 5 Minutes Walk From Niseko Hanazono Lift
If Niseko is world-reknowned for its crystalline, dry-ash champagne powder, then our home, Solitude, is likewise known for it's 400m walk to the Grand Hirafu lifts on the Hanazono side of the mountain, home of the famed Strawberry Fields.
Solitude boasts big sunshine, a wine cellar, a perfect 180 degree view of Mt. Yotei, deep snow drifts for the kids and plenty of elegant space for the adults. You can leave your skis at the 308 Lodge at no charge, walk back to the house each day in your comfy apres-ski boots, and then free yourself of your gear in our hot and toasty dry room. In the morning, the ritual begins again: you crawl back into your gear in the dry room, load the kids into the toboggan - and then you are there - in five minutes, before there are even more than ten cars in the parking lot.
Solitude represents quiet seclusion, while simultaneously providing immediate access to the lift each morning, without any need for a shuttle bus pick-up. Hirafu-Hanazono shuttle bus is running every 30 minutes during ski season should you wish to explore vibrant Hirafu for dining, shopping, night life, and several hot springs.
If you are seeking a true alpine experience at Niseko, then our home might be a good fit for you. Town restaurants and bars are but a 15-minute drive away.
Summer time in Niseko is action packed - whether it is fly-fishing, trekking, mountain biking, wakeboarding, golfing or tree climbing, you will find it all at Niseko HANAZONO Resort. The famous and picturesque Niseko Tokyu Golf Course is only 5 minute walk from the house.

About Sonia Mayer
My husband and I currently live in Shanghai with our 4 year old twins. I am originally from Tokyo and my husband is from California. We met in Tokyo, then decided to come to China to set up our own business. We built the house in Niseko to get away from high-paced city life, enjoy some serious skiing done, and spend some quality time with my side of the family in Japan.
Sonia Mayer purchased this Chalet in 2007
Why Sonia Mayer chose Kutchan
Excellent fresh powder skiing is only 5 minute walk from the house. We enjoy the summer in Niseko as much as the fresh powder snow. It truly is a beautiful area with incredible scenery, excellent food, hot springs, endless activities, and tranquility.
What makes this Chalet unique
180 degree view of Mt. Yotei is simply breathtaking weather she is fully covered in snow or golden during autumn. You can enjoy an outdoor activity during the day and come back to crack some wine open from our wine cellar while enjoying the sunset. It is a very tranquil, secluded and peaceful place.

Sports & Adventure Activities
A beautiful & cozy chalet with a spacious living/dining room. A speculator view of Mt.Yotei.
Walking distant to the ski lodge, Hanazono 308 in the winter time and to the golf course in the summer time. Beautiful natural surroundings. Top notch in style & comfort.
Excellent stay in Niseko
We traveled with a group for 3 nights in Niseko and stayed at this nice lodge. Fresh towels and linens were provided and the house was nice and spacious. The owner is extremely responsive.
One thing to note, the house is a bit tucked away near the Hanazono side - would recommend utilizing the nice kitchen and cooking some meals on your own or getting a car as hirafu is a good 10-15 min away. if you are a competent skiier you can start at Hanazono and make your way to any other part of the mountain, provided winds cooperate and lifts are open.
