Located at the base of the ski lifts, Nisade’s properties are positioned in the village to ensure easy immediate access to ski lifts, restaurants and onsens. The cozy Hirafu ski village has something for everyone. Experience over 50 bars and restaurants including sashimi, modern Australian, Mexican, Italian and lots of quirky bars and cafes.
If it’s a quick lunch you are after try onigiri – the Japanese rice wrapped in seaweed triangles available in Seicomart. A local snack with different fillings, they fit perfectly in your ski jacket when you’re having too great a day on the slopes. Hot tasty dishes offered in the village and on the mountain include hearty servings of pork ramen noodles, Japanese curry and delicious tempura for around ¥1000.
In addition to the centrally located Seicomart and Lawsons convenience stores there are a variety of souvenir shops, internet cafes and ski/board rental shops and retail outlets.
A must for every visitor is an onsen experience. Each one is different so don’t limit yourself to just one. The Vale Niseko offers Niseko’s newest public onsen as well as exclusive apartments with private onsens on the balcony. These traditional mineral rich natural springs provide both indoor and outdoor baths separate for men and women – a great way to soak away your ski aches and watch the snow fall.
A great combination of village atmosphere and beautiful scenery makes Niseko unique in the skiing world.
