Japan-based travellers will experience its “green season” this summer in Niseko.

Without international visitors this summer, there are great deals on accommodations, activities, and restaurants/bars.

Niseko’s summer is ripe for all sorts of fresh gourmet food experiences and outdoor activities. Visitors this summer can also be among the first to try Hokkaido’s biggest tree-trekking course which has just opened at Niseko’s Hanazono Resort.

Niseko Tourism marketing director Acme Wu says Niseko makes the perfect base to stay and explore Southwest Hokkaido. “Within a 60-minute drive, there are dozens of Hokkaido’s most famous scenic spots,” Acme says.

“For example, visitors staying in Niseko can easily visit Shakotan for the freshest sea urchin (uni). Lake Toya offers a range of dining and activity options on and around the lake, which is one of the most picturesque spots in Japan. Another coastal town Yoichi is famous for its spectacular wineries and whisky distiller, and it’s also one of the best places to try fruit picking while overlooking the Sea of Japan coastline.”

There are dozens of activities in and around Niseko to suit all ages including:

  • Rafting, SUP boarding, kayaking
  • Canyoning
  • Tree trekking (three parks to choose from)
  • Mountain biking and electric biking (hire available)
  • Hiking
  • Paragliding

Niseko is becoming a famous international dining destination, so there is no better time for Japanese people to come and see what the world is talking about – from Michelin-star restaurants to various local favorites, visitors can enjoy Japanese and international cuisine.

Niseko also has the best resort accommodation in Japan, with the best ever prices available now. Choose from five-star hotels, self-contained apartments, or stand-alone houses or cottages.
