SANSUI NISEKO is a boutique hotel located in the centre of Niseko, surrounded by nature. Designed by
award-winning architect Makoto Nakayama, the simplistic architecture focuses on natural materials,
creating a Zen and comfortable environment with excellent ski-in ski-out access to the ski slopes of Niseko Tokyu Grand Hirafu.


Take advantage of the world-famous Niseko powder with our ski-in ski-out entrance that is linked directly to Grand Hirafu Family Course. For serious powder chasers, the high-speed Center 4 Ace quad chair lift is just 150 meters away. This express lift gets you to fresh powder, and other mountain lifts quickly and effortlessly.


Guests can get their ski gear and lessons sorted at the Basement level of SANSUI NISEKO.

We have the latest high-quality skis, snowboards, and boots available to hire in the Ski Rental Centre. Our expert team will help you pick the best equipment for your skill level and get you out on the slopes quickly and easily.

Daily from 8am – 5pm (till 7:30pm if night skiing is available)


Whether you’re an adult or child, first-timer or advanced, looking to ski, snowmobile, tele ski or cat ski, experience the joys of the mountain with Niseko’s premier snowsports school.

As SANSUI NISEKO’s exclusive partner, you can enjoy the ultimate convenience of chatting with the team from their desk within the hotel, and your instructors will meet you in the ski room to start your adventure.

Choose from private one-on-one lessons to small group sessions or some of the other wonderful experiences they offer for a truly memorable time on the mountain.


Next to the Ski Rental area, guests can find ski lockers assigned to their room
for exclusive use during their stay. Each locker includes a boot heating system
to ensure that your ski and snowboard boots will be dry and warm when you
put them on in the morning.
