Lean back, put your feet up in front of the roaring fire, and grab that glass of Merlot. It’s time to unwind after a day out on the slopes in this gorgeous little boutique hotel.
Set in the middle of Niseko Hirafu, Japan’s renowned ski wonderland on the northern island of Hokkaido, Kimamaya by Odin has the intimacy of a private chalet with the service and facilities of a hotel. It’s within walking distance to Niseko’s bars and restaurants, but also has a great restaurant of its own. Kimamaya also offers a range of excellent massage therapies to sooth sore muscles after a full day of skiing.
This exquisite nine-bedroom hotel has charm, comfort and perfectly captures Niseko’s unique alpine atmosphere.
Lightfoot Travel loves…
“The wooden (moku) or stone (ishi) spa tubs in the hotel’s very own private onsen.”
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Niseko into a greater Japan holiday. Take a look at Cityscapes to Snowy Slopes as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
