Niseko Region

Kutchan: the main service town to Niseko
Dubbed Asia’s premier alpine destination, Niseko is located in northern Japan on the island of Hokkaido. The region boasts world‐class ski resorts, golf courses, rafting, trekking, fishing and a host of other activities. Cuisine highlights include excellent seafood fresh from nearby fisheries. Local produce include delicious sweet rockmelon, potatoes, corn, and other vegetables. Much of the agricultural produce comes from low chemical, environmentally friendly farms, and recycling and composting are promoted across the region. Nisade's properties are positioned for you to capture the fabulous year round Niseko lifestyle and cuisine.

MT YOTEI
Located in the Niseko region, Mount Yotei is special to the locals as it looks over the Niseko region; this amazing mountain is located in the Shikotsu‐Toya National Park. An extinct volcano, it resembles its more famous older brother Mount Fuji and is one of Japan’s most famous mountains. Covered with snow for 3⁄4 of the year it provides a spectacular photo opportunity and can be hiked in the summer months, a return trip takes 5‐6 hours of rigorous climbing.

KUTCHAN
A short drive from the Niseko ski area and Hirafu village with a population of 16,500, Kutchan offers supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants, hospital and clinics, photo processing, banks, post office and shops. Kutchan is a great place to shop for all those unique Japanese items and sweets to take home. The local Kutchan post office provides an ATM that foreigners can withdraw cash between 9am to 5pm. Kutchan features over 50 restaurants including sushi, noodles, Japanese BBQ and Izakaya (bars with tapas style Japanese bar food). A visit to Kutchan for dinner is a must for all visitors to discover the local scene. Nihonbashi serves sushi and sashimi sets that rival some of Japan’s best sushi bars. For the younger crowd, bars such as Loaf Lounge or Be Bar are popular hang outs.

LAKE TOYA
Lake Toya (Toyako) is part of the Shikotsu‐Toya National Park. In addition to the stunning circular lake itself, the Toyako region features hotsprings and an active volcano, Mount Usu. The area also offers many fishing, hiking, and camping opportunities.
