Niseko Village Overview

Niseko Hirafu is a charming little village nestled at the foothills of the Alpen, Kogen and Hirafu ski slopes. The village is categorized into four sections; upper village, middle village, lower village and further out is the extension of Izumikyo. Most of the luxury accommodation, including Fresh Powder is located in the upper village, whilst the bars and restaurants are evenly spread between the upper, middle and lower village with the highest concentration centering around the main traffic lights on main street. Fresh Powder is perfectly located in the upper village near the high speed gondola.

Village Information and Map

Over the past four years the resort has evolved in winter into a bustling village boasting a plethora of restaurants featuring exquisite Japanese cuisine. Traditional Japanese restaurants offer ramen noodles, sushi, seafood, okonomiyaki, izakaya, curry and yakitori dishes. For those seeking western fare, everything from American Hamburgers to Italian fine dining can also be found within the village. Unique bars such as Gyu bar, the ice bar and jam bar café have recently been supplemented by newly opened western bars such as wild bills, java bar and blowhard to name just a few. A shuttle bus operates on a regular basis throughout the village taking skiers and boarders to the main gondola or Kogen lifts. Technically, as the complimentary buses are operated by the ski resort visitors who are not skiing should not board these buses. However walking around the village in knee deep snow can be a very enjoyable experience.
