Niseko is located in northern Japan on the island of Hokkaido.   The name Niseko derives from the Ainu language, the ethnic group of Hokkaido.  It means "a cliff jutting over a riverbank deep in the mountains".  When it comes to scenery, Niseko does not disappoint with the stunning perfect volcano shape of Mt Yotei providing a breathtaking backdrop.


Niseko is fun for the whole family and offers a terrific range of outdoor and cultural activities.  The region boasts world‐class ski resorts, golf courses, mountain bike trails, cultural excursions and a host of other activities. Cuisine highlights include excellent seafood and culinary delights.  

As well as much to see and do in Niseko, it provides an excellent base for exploring further afield including day trips to nearby Lake Toya, Rusutsu and Otaru; as well as other areas of Hokkaido.

Hokkaido’s unique change in seasons gives this island and specifically Niseko even more appeal.  With its unspoiled nature and mild temperature, Hokkaido summers are popular with Japanese tourists and outdoor lovers.  Clean air, blue sky, colourful flowers and undulating hills bring people in.  The autumn foliage is a sight to see as the greenery turns to spectacular golds, browns and oranges.
