Summary: Hirafu Village is where the action takes place in Niseko when the on-hill action is over. The classy yet welcoming Kizuna Apartments are positioned and priced perfectly to help make your Niseko ski holiday a top one on & off the slopes.


Top Niseko Comfort & Style

Luxury and value-for-money aren`t often in the same sentence when describing Niseko accommodations.

But the stylish, perfectly positioned Kizuna Apartments defy the principle.

Kizuna Niseko Hirafu Luxury Apartments Snowtrip Tips

Snowtrip Tip 1: Ski hire the way it`s supposed to be

Walk from your Kizuna Apartment front door for 5 minutes, drop in, get you gear and get out on the Hirafu slopes while others stand in line. Beat the crowds and save some Yen by hiring your ski gear from the friendly, experienced staff at Harro`s Snowsports, conveniently located near the base of the Grand Hirafu Gondola.

Snowtrip Tip 2: Eat-in or Eat-out. Either way you`ll eat well.

Stroll from Kizuna`s Upper Hirafu location into Lower Hirafu to reserve a spot at the always packed Rosso-Rosso`s. You won`t complain about the ¥5500 per person tab after enjoying a famous Hokkaido steak grilled to perfection. Otherwise, drink a beer and grab a pizza from the fun local`s favorite pizza joint, Yummy`s.

Snowtrip Tip 3: Walk this way (carefully)…

Kizuna Niseko is in a prime spot between the Niseko Mountain Resort Grand Hirafu ski slopes and entertainment, but regardless of where you stay in Niseko, it`s a good idea to come prepared with proper winter shoes. Your high heels and trendy sneakers will look great…until you fall on your ass and end-up in a cast because you valued fashion over common-sense. Niseko gets 15 meters of snow annually. Sidewalks will be covered in mounds of snow (and thick ice) which means slopeside conditions are almost always awesome, but not so awesome for the cement. Even if you already have sturdy winter footwear, it`s not a bad idea to invest in some inexpensive slip-on traction spikes that`ll help keep you upright (even when staggering home late night after the bar).

Snowtrip Tip 4: Niseko backcountry stash specialists – HPG

When you`re not sleeping or relaxing inside the stylish Kizuna Apartment walls, head out into Niseko`s bottomless powder fields with the mountain pros at Hanazono Powder Guides.  There`s a free shuttle right outside the Kizuna front door that`ll get you to Hanazono Resort 308 Lodge. You can guess by their name that HPG know where to find the pow stashes you`ve been dreaming of. Stop dreaming. Shred Japow with HPG.
