Niseko Mt. Resort Grand Hirafu
Japan, 〒044-0081 Hokkaidō, Abuta-gun, Kutchan-chō, 倶知安町字山田２０４
Niseko ResortsNiseko destinations have been rated some of the top resorts in the entire country. Composed of three main resorts known as Niseko Village, Grand Hirafu and An’nupuri.
Grand Hirafu is the largest of the three resorts and is the only one to have a full-size town as its base.
At Hirafu Town, visitors and locals can enjoy a wide variety of shops, restaurants, entertainment venues and nightclubs to make the most out of their trip while they are not skiing down the runs. So, if you forgot to bring any gear, here you can buy everything you need. I forgot to bring my ski helmet, so I just went straight to the sports equipment shop and bought one, but before I found this article on finding the best ski helmets and read all about it because I didn’t want to pay for something that’s not worth it.
While Niseko Village and An’nupuri are smaller resorts, each one is connected and offers complimentary shuttle services to each resort at their individual bases. By purchasing a mountain pass, you are able to experience the amenities and runs at each resort no matter where you are staying.
