  • Welcome to The Freshwater

    The Freshwater combines the best of both Japanese and Western cultures to deliver true boutique luxury in a superb location.

    Offering beautifully designed spaces, The Freshwater design was inspired by its surroundings; a stone and timber facade to capture the essence of the Niseko natural environment. Oversized windows to capture the beauty of alpine trees.

    The Freshwater is located on the main street of Hirafu with a flat one minute walk to the shuttle bus stop, and a six minute flat walk to the Family Run ski slope. Restaurants, bars and convenience stores are all within a couple of minutes walk.

    During peak season, NISADE operate a FREE service that runs from The Freshwater to the Family Chair Lift (next door to The Vale Niseko).

  • About Niseko – Premier Alpine Destination

    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, mountain bike trails, cultural excursion and a host of other activities. Cuisine highlights include excellent seafood and culinary delights. Visitors can sample the delicious local produce from a huge number of restaurants available across the island.

    The ski season in Japan starts from early December and ends in late April. During this time the resort is covered in a blanket of snow. The Niseko ski area is one of Asia’s largest ski fields and is world famous for its incredible quality and quantity of powder snow. The southwest Hokkaido region receives low-pressure weather fronts from Siberia and low moisture count, combined with temperatures rarely above 10 degrees. These weather patterns deliver the unique Niseko powder and an average of 14 metres of snow every season!
