With everything from luxury ski-in-ski-out properties, to backpackers and lodges, and everything in between, guests can be choosy in their Niseko accommodation style preferences. Unlike other Hokkaido ski resorts like Rusutsu, Kiroro, and Furano, which mostly have large-scale resort accommodation, Niseko ski resort offers a wide range of different property types, so guests can select the best accommodation to suit their needs.



Staying at a Niseko hotel is the best option for those who want in-house amenities such as restaurants, onsens, or retail. With some of the largest options offering ski in ski out access, beginner terrain, and onsite facilities such as spa, child care and restaurants, this type of accommodation can be a great choice for families.


Niseko Apartments, Niseko Condominiums

Niseko Chalets, Niseko Villas, Niseko Holiday Homes

A good choice of Niseko accommodation for those wanting a true ‘home away from home’, with the option to cook in-house, lounge in front of their Apple TV, and be able to spread out in style. There are hundreds of Niseko chalets, private villas, holiday homes and townhouses to choose from.


Niseko Lodges, Niseko Backpackers

Niseko Ski-in-Ski-out Accommodation

There are a number of ski-in-ski-out properties , as well as a handful of Niseko ski in ski out chalets. These offer the ultimate convenience for those who want to prioritize skiing and snowboarding, and seek immediate, hassle-free lift access.


Accommodation with Onsen

A very popular request is a Niseko chalet or apartment with onsen, or hot spring style bathtub. Niseko has a plethora of these types of accommodations, which can be found in our Niseko Accommodation with Onsen and Hakuba Accommodation with Onsen guides.



Where to Stay in Niseko

Niseko United Ski Resort is made up of four separate ski resort areas (Grand Hirafu, Niseko Village, An’nupuri and Hanazono. Most accommodations are located in and around Grand Hirafu (Hirafu Village, etc) as well as Niseko Village.


Hirafu Accommodation

The largest cluster of Niseko accommodation is located in Hirafu Village – a lovely ski resort town chock-a-block full of amenities such as retail shops, rental shops, restaurants, cafes, and bars – which sits at the base of Grand Hirafu Ski Resort. The village is quite compact, making it a very walkable resort-town area, with most Hirafu accommodation no more than a 10 minute walk to the lifts (and most less than 5), as well as having a number of prime ski-in-ski-out accommodation options.

Hirafu Village is divided into several areas: Upper Hirafu Village, Middle Hirafu Village, and Lower Hirafu Village, as well as some fringe areas including Kabayama, Izumikyo 1 and Niseko East Village, which are just beyond the Hirafu Village boundaries but are still quite close to village amenities and the lifts.


hirafu accommodation map


Because the Village is set at the base of Grand Hirafu resort, most Upper and Middle Village Hirafu accommodation is about 5 minutes’ walk to the lifts (a number also offer ski in ski out access), whereas Lower Village Hirafu accommodation is a 5 – 20 minutes walk from the lifts, and no more than 1 or 2 minutes walk from a shuttle bus stop, which connects guests to the Grand Hirafu lifts as well as Hanazono Ski Resort. The shuttles run every 15 minutes or so and are a very convenient way to get yourself (and equipment) up the hill to the lifts.

A great advantage of Hirafu accommodation is the proximity to the highest concentration of Niseko restaurants, cafes, and bars, offering the ultimate convenience after a long day on the slopes. Guests can generally choose from countless excellent Niseko restaurants, a short and atmospheric stroll from their Hirafu accommodation.

Niseko Izumikyo 1, Niseko East Village, and Niseko Kabayama are all fringe areas of Niseko Hirafu Village, located just outside the main village area.

Izumikyo 1 is a small enclave of chalets just 2 minutes’ walk East of Hirafu Village, and those staying in this area can still easily access all of the Hirafu Village lifts and other amenities on foot, including some Izumikyo facilities such as the Lawson convenience store and the Niseko Adventure Center and Cafe.

Beyond Izumikyo 1 lies Niseko East Village, which is another enclave of chalets, townhouses, restaurants, cafes, as well as another Lawson convenience store. Those staying in Niseko East Village will be reliant on shuttle service to the lifts and other Hirafu amenities.

On the other side of Hirafu Village lies Kabayama, which includes Niseko accommodations such as Always Niseko, Hokkaidaway, and the brand new Shousugi Niseko. Guests staying here can hop on the shuttle bus and be in Hirafu Village in a minute or two, or simply walk to the lifts in 10-15 minutes.


Niseko Village Accommodation

The other main Niseko accommodation area is Niseko Village (formerly known as Higashiyama). This area is perfect for anyone looking for the ultimate convenience with easy lift access and all amenities onsite.  Niseko Village accommodation is mostly made up of large, luxurious complexes complete with inhouse dining, bars, spas, onsens, rental shops, ski schools, and many offer ski-in-ski-out access.

Accommodation in Niseko Village:

Ritz-Carlton Reserve

Hilton Niseko Village

The Green Leaf Niseko Village

Kasara Townhouses

Hinode Hills

Snow Dog Village


Niseko Village Resort also offers quite a bit of Beginner terrain so is a great location for beginner skiers and boarders, as well as those with young children, as the slopes and all amenities are very accessible, including dining, ski school, rental shops, and child care. The downside is that those amenities tend to be pricier, often more than what you would expect to pay for the same sort of thing in other accommodation areas such as Hirafu.
