The Freshwater Location

Hirafu Village is Niseko's main hub. Here you will find most of Niseko's restaurants, shops, bars and other amenities, including the Japan Ski Experience Niseko office where our ground service team is based.

Hirafu Village sits at the foot of Grand Hirafu, the largest of Niseko's 4 interconnected ski areas, which offers sensational on and off-piste powder skiing and spectacular flood-lit ski runs at night.

Just steps away from Niseko's popular restaurants and bars and conveniently located less than a minute's walk from a ski shuttle stop, The Freshwater Niseko is in a prime central Hirafu Village location and is the perfect walk-anywhere spot to access Niseko's vast amenities.

Walk from The Freshwater to the Ace Family Chair lift in just 5 minutes, walk to the Gondola in less than 10 minutes, or take the shuttle anywhere around Hirafu Village.
