Niseko Experience

The locale

Located on Japan’s mountainous northern island, Hokkaido, Hirafu is one of Niseko’s four separate but interconnected ski resorts and has earned a reputation for its cosmopolitan vibe and world-class dining.  

Momiji Lodge is as central as it comes – in the middle of Momiji Zaka Street in the centre of Hirafu Middle Village. Ski lifts are about five to 10 minutes walk, and within three minutes walk are 10 of Hirafu’s best bars and restaurants, including Michelin-star Kamimura, the Barn and Ezo Seafood. Those looking for more casual eats are just a hop, skip and jump away from Rin Japanese Restaurant and Niseko’s Yummy Pizza. And when it comes to bars, there’s no going past the huge selection of craft beers at Mick's, and late night DJ sets at Wild Bill’s.

There’s not much you can’t reach by short walk, but if you ever do need a lift, the free village shuttle bus stop is just 20m from the door and our on-call driver service is available daily from 8am - 6pm (winter-only) to ferry you within the village.

At the end of an exhilarating day on the mountains, relax with a long, reviving soak at one of Niseko’s many outdoor thermal spas or ‘onsen’.  Momiji Lodge is close to both Hotel Hirafutei Onsen and Hotel Alpen Onsen – both renowned for their beautiful facilities and excellent rejuvenation treatments.

How to get there

Getting to Niseko is easy with daily direct flights to New Chitose Airport from Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taipei, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai and Beijing.

Rental cars are available at the airport all year round from a number of suppliers, and it is a scenic two hour drive to Niseko. 

If not comfortable driving, we recommend a private transfer for groups. A convenient airport coach transfer is the best way to travel. Please contact our reservations department with your flight details to book airport transfers or rental cars.

Alternatively, you can travel worry-free on JR Rail from CTS (New Chitose Airport) via Sapporo, with a quick transfer at Otaru, to Kutchan JR Station. Trains are always on time and leave approximately every 90 minutes.

If coming from Tokyo, you can experience the famous Shinkansen (bullet train), which travels up to 320km an hour and hurtles through an undersea tunnel that connects the main island of Honshu with Hokkaido. Travel time is around 4 hours to Hakodate where you can connect to a regional train up to JR Kutchan (3.5 hours).

Guest Experience

  • All services are awesome, the staff here are really nice. This is the first time I stayed in vacation rental but found this is a great option for people who have a lot of kids like us. I am sure there are a lot opportunities to have more customers especially from North Asia such as China, Korea and Japan. Overall it was a great experience, I want to recommend to my friends and stay here.
