Niseko Tourism & Kutchan Tourism Association’s latest video campaign’s latest video campaign taps into Japan’s newfound love for glamping and other glamorous winter activities.

The video showcases all aspects of the only modern, international ski resort in Japan, says Niseko Tourism Marketing Director Acme Wu.

“After playing in Niseko’s world-famous powder snow, Japanese visitors in the video enjoy après drinks at European cocktail bars and stay in luxurious chalets and lofts,” Wu says.

“Due to COVID-19, condos and chalets usually occupied by international celebrities have been left vacant this year, so the video takes a sneak peek at our domestic guests enjoying their stay at these accommodations."

“Because celebrities value privacy, many Niseko properties have their own private indoor or outdoor onsen – the level of luxury has to be seen to be believed. You don’t even need to ski or snowboard to enjoy Niseko these days – there’s plenty more to do on and off the snow, and it’s a dream for anyone wanting to post on social media."

“This year travelers in Japan have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see why the rest of the world has fallen in love with Niseko, and we are excited to welcome them”, Wu says.

Kutchan Tourism Association Representative Director Satoshi Yoshida said, "34 years after the release of the Japanese timeless masterpiece film "Take Me Out to Ski", our ski resort has evolved into "NISEKO" - a world renowned winter resort which now attracts skiers from all over the globe. We hope that you will enjoy Japan's premier ski resort and world-class services that embrace the spirit of Mt. Yotei and the Niseko mountain ranges this winter."

Niseko Tourism Representative Director Ross Findlay said the organisation was pleased the video would highlight what makes Niseko one of the best international winter destinations.

"We're very proud to put out this great video," Findlay says. "This winter we've had fantastic snowfall almost every day, making it an unforgettable winter for the domestic visitors who could join us here in Niseko. We're looking forward to welcoming more guests from across Japan  - hopefully along with international visitors next winter as well."
