Mizunara - Winter Skiing
Mizunara - Landscape View

Located on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido and overlooking the active volcano of Mount Yotei – a smaller version of Mount Fuji – Hirafu, one of Niseko’s four separate but interconnected ski resorts, is blessed with some of the driest, lightest and most abundant snows on Earth.

Despite an average yearly snowfall of 15 metres, Hirafu also enjoys comfortable summers. Its untamed volcanic landscape, excellent hiking trails and increasing reputation as a wellness haven, make it a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts all year-round.

Chalet Mizunara is conveniently located in Hirafu’s lower village close to many of its  popular restaurants and entertainment venues. It is a mere ten-minute walk from the Grand Hirafu Ski Gondola.

An on-call driver will be happy to drive you to and from the gondola and any other locations within Hirafu village. There are also free shuttle buses that will take you to any of the other Niseko resorts.

    Amazing house - fabulously appointed. Brilliant service from Niseko Boutiques (Elite Havens). The snow was superlative and the company exceptional. A great holiday.
