About Us

What makes us different?

We are in Niseko

We are in Niseko year round and in the winter our front desk team is here to assist you from 8am - 7pm daily. You can drop by our office during these times for any query big or small. Outside of these hours we are only phone call away.

We are competitive

Ski holidays don’t need to be expensive. We strive hard to offer the most competitive rates and deals on accommodation, lift passes, lessons and transfers. Whether you are looking for a value studio for two or a luxury chalet for a group large or small we work hard to provide you with the best prices and the best service.

We deliver personalised service

We want your holiday experience to be a memorable one. To achieve this our team of native English speakers and locals make every effort to provide the best possible customer service to all of our guests.

We are local

Having lived in Hokkaido for over 12 years we can offer excellent advice on the best places to ski, see, visit and relax. Niseko is our home and we will do our best to welcome you into it and help you experience all it has to offer.

We love Hokkaido

Although originally drawn here for the snow, the outdoor pursuits the island offers during the warmer months have helped keep us here. This means we can provide helpful advice through out the year whether you are here to golf, cycle, fish, hike or simply enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
