Its Cherry Blossom Time in Niseko

The cherry blossoms are all bursting in and around Niseko at the moment so get there ASAP or you will miss seeing them.
Such a beautiful time of year in Hokkaido with everything budding from trees in the mountains to all of the spring bulbs, the farmers fields filled with delicious vegetables and the vivid blue skies.

Niseko skiing side trip

Whilst Niseko has some amazing and super light powder snow skiing over 4 mountains, if you are after a day skiing elsewhere and a change of scenery try Kokusai which is about 70 mins drive away from Niseko. The drive over is quite beautiful and well worth it.
We skied there both early January and late February with one of the best “powder” days for the season.

Niseko Cow Parade comes to an end

The Niseko Cow Parade closing Party was held at Ki last Saturday.
It was a great evening attended mostly by locals and sponsors with the food supplied by acclaimed and very talented chef Shinichi Maeda. You will see the Fubuki cow standing outside Fubuki 3 where she will live for now.
