Of all the different ski resorts that you may find throughout the country of Japan, Niseko is one that truly stands out among the rest. It is the only one to offer a wide selection of nightlife and dining options to its visitors. If you're looking to enjoy a peaceful getaway, simply enjoy the comfort of staying on-site at your resort.
For a little more action during the nights, escape to the town for fun-filled activities. Hiking is something you need to definitely try while here. I heard from one of my friends that visited Niseko year before that wandering through the nature of this place is simply amazing so I wanted to experience the same thing he did, and let me tell you, it’s majestic! Before I even started packing I decided that I’ll pack all my hiking gear and since my hiking socks were a bit old I bought I new one (here I found a pretty nice review on best hiking socks on the market today)
In addition, Niseko is one of the best ski destinations in Japan that makes it easy for native English speakers to communicate with staff members and locals. Most resorts and restaurants cater to both English and Japanese speakers, making this an excellent spot to first introduce yourself to the Japanese language.
