Why Rent a Luxury Penthouses in Niseko?
Some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes in the world lie in Japan. Rested among its natural environment of tranquil, mountainous wilderness and valleys is Niseko, a town on the island of Hokkaido, found north of the country. With allure created by elevated terrains and deciduous forests, Niseko reveals changing dramatic views as each season passes.
The therapeutic waters of Japanese hot springs, traditionally called onsens, provide an experience of culture and wellness all year round. Visitors wade in indoor or outdoor waters infused with a mix of minerals believed to heal and restore the body. One worth visiting is the Konbu onsen which has been around for over a century.
Moreover, as the nation’s prominent ski resort destination, Niseko is most coveted in the winter, when it turns into a frost-covered expanse. Where tourists long for stunning ski and snowboarding grounds, Niseko answers with a sophisticated scene of snowcapped Mount Yotei, wintry woodlands, and an outstanding amount of dry, powdery snow.
Exceeding other ski resorts’ snow from around the globe, Niseko delights in the abundant snow it receives. Falling almost daily for three months, Niseko’s slopes average 15 meters of powder, perfect for snowboarding and skiing, granting seasoned skiers the luxury of going off-piste. Just two hours off New Chitose International Airport by car or rail, the ‘powder capital of the world’ also entices visitors to enjoy other winter activities such as snow rafting, snow tubing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.
Around the area, ski villages Annupuri, Hanazono, Higashiyama, and Hirafu enhance the holiday experience. Hirafu village alone holds over 50 establishments to shop, drink and dine. Rent ski and snowboard gear from a selection of rental stores, or find a convenient grocery, pharmacy, or souvenir shop. Rediscover traditional Japanese cuisine by eating fresh sushi and sashimi, or satisfy your cravings for a more international appetite. While at the village, take advantage of a red, vintage fridge door if you see it. Only open in the winter season, Bar Gyu, otherwise known as “The Fridge Door Bar,” is the oldest bar in Niseko. Appreciate the cozy, quirky atmosphere while you sip on one of their signature cocktails or rare Japanese whisky.
Summertime in the region of Hokkaido also proves picturesque. A well-endowed paradise, the moderate climate allows for open-air leisure and adventures. Gain new vantage as the Grand Hirafu Gondola shows you Mount Yotei and Niseko terrain from above. Below, reconnoiter through cycling, hiking, or climbing and unearth the joys of being in verdant foliage. Additionally, golf enthusiasts can relish rounds of the sport against the incredible backdrop.
