Japan's four-season destination
Set against the backdrop of Mt. Yotei - an active volcano which is so similar to Mt. Fuji, known as Ezo Fuji - the Niseko region is a feast for the eyes. In winter, the champagne powder snow and pristine ski slopes attract skiers and snowboarders from all over the world. And in summer, visitors are drawn by the comfortable temperature, serene country atmosphere, farm-fresh produce and wide variety of activities.
It is little wonder Niseko is attracting ever-increasing numbers of visitors to its rolling countryside and beautiful ski slopes.
The first pioneers arrived in Kutchan from Honshu in 1891. While it may seem that Kutchan’s beginnings can be traced back to that year, there is actually a long history of people inhabiting the area.
Whether looking for action and adventure or the opportunity to quietly explore this beautiful Japanese region, a wide range of activities is available.
Frequently referred to as a ‘winter wonderland’, Niseko’s unique location makes it a “must-see, must-ski” hotspot for winter sports enthusiasts.
