Niseko

Overview

Within easy reach from Asia's busy hubs, Niseko's mouthwateringly fresh cuisine, featherlike powder snow and sumptous accommodation are why it's our top choice for the skiing and snowboarding come winter.

Just over an hour’s flight from Tokyo, Sapporo airport 2.5 hours drive from Hirafu Village which has dining delights aplenty as well as cosy little après-ski bars. From stylish boutique hotels, to designer apartments and expansive chalets, whether ski in / ski out, or a further drive from the slopes, there’s options to suit all budgets. First-timers also find it easy to pick up swishing through the snow with native English-speaking instructors who’ve now come to call this charming little village their home.

Lightfoot has made yearly check-ups to test the powder, sample the sake and ensure all accommodation we recommend is in tip-top shape. Get in touch for your tailor-made ski trip, from flights to airport transfers and restaurant bookings (popular ones can be booked up to 2 months in advance!) we get everything in order before you leave.
