HOSHINOYA Lodge Niseko (tentative) to open in Niseko Hirafu

The first residence hotel under the HOSHINOYA brand to open in Hokkaido
Scheduled opening: 2028

HOSHINOYA, a brand of luxury hotels offering extraordinary experiences related to distinct themes of each property, will open its ninth property, HOSHINOYA Lodge Niseko (tentative), in Kutchan, Hokkaido. With ski-in/ski-out access to the largest ski resort in the Niseko area and close proximity to popular districts, HOSHINOYA Lodge Niseko’s exceptional location allows guests to enjoy the lifestyle Niseko has to offer as well as its lush nature and diverse dining options. The terrace on the top floor of the hotel features an onsen pool with magnificent views, making it the perfect choice of accommodation for guests who are skiing in winter. As the first residence hotel in Hokkaido under the HOSHINOYA brand, HOSHINOYA Lodge Niseko is scheduled to open in 2028.

As one of Japan’s leading snow resorts, the Niseko area is visited by countless tourists from around the world who are looking to experience fine powder snow. Visitors can raft in snowmelt in spring as well as climb Mt. Yotei while enjoying its stunning greenery in summer and autumn colors in fall, making the Niseko area perfect for experiencing nature all year round. This new residence hotel will be built in Niseko to share HOSHINOYA’s spirit of hospitality with people from around the world. At our residence hotel, each guest room will be sold to a unit owner, who can participate in our rental program. Unit owners can use the facility for themselves for certain periods of the year, with Hoshino Resorts operating their rooms as hotel rooms for the rest of the year.

Prime location in Niseko
Kutchan, where HOSHINOYA Lodge Niseko is located, is a bustling town visited by many people who enjoy skiing and other leisure activities. The Hirafu district is a convenient 8-minute walk from the hotel. While exploring the many restaurants and bars in the area, nightlife with an ambiance in contrast to the hotel can be enjoyed. It is also located at the highest elevation in the city and offers ski-in/ski-out access to the largest ski resort in the Niseko area, the Niseko Tokyu Grand HIRAFU Ski Resort. The ski resort offers a wide variety of courses and slopes, allowing you to immerse yourself in skiing and snowboarding to your heart’s content with fine powder snow and spectacular views.

Guest rooms equipped with a living-dining room focusing on guest privacy
All guest rooms are equipped with a separate kitchen and a living-dining room for a comfortable extended stay. “Gathering service” will be offered, where ingredients that have been pre-prepared by our chefs will be delivered to the room, for guests to enjoy authentic cuisine with only a few simple steps to finish the dish. This is a style of dining that makes it possible to enjoy a relaxing meal in a private space regardless of the time.

Onsen pool overlooking Mt. Yotei filled by our wellspring
The onsen pool overlooking Mt. Yotei on the top floor of the hotel is filled by our wellspring. Soak in this hot spring pool to relax both the mind and body.
