Hanazono, an option when you reach the top of the niseko gondola is worth exploring. It's not the biggest snowfield in the world, but the pistes that they have are good fun. Red to the right, and black to the left, basically, but they are all good runs that are pretty quiet, allowing you the opportunity to just chill in... More

The free shuttle took us here from our hostel so the transport is very convenient. It's a one stop shop for ski activities. They also had lessons available and gears for purchase and rental. My cousins enjoyed the tubing activity since we don't really ski. They also have this huge restaurant with glass windows so you can see or watch... More

As someone with intermediate skiing skills, I really enjoyed the Hanazono area because it was less crowded, and had slightly more relaxed green runs than the Hirafu area. The lifts were quick and often had no lines to wait in, even when Hirafu was packed. It seemed that they had lots to do for kids as well. I found the... More

The Hanazono runs were brilliant. Away from the busy Hirafu area, you can sometimes find yourself owning an entire run. The part of the Hanazono resort area is definitely the views!! Absolutely breathtaking!

As a complete newbie to snowsports, I found this place extremely beginner- friendly. Took 3 full days of lessons from NISS - they were great. Rented from Niseko Sports at Hanazono 308 - which provides the facilities to lock your skis+poles at the centre. If one is into a quiet holiday and early night after a day of skiing, staying...

The green runs at Hanazono are wide and there are quite a few options to choose from. My friends who just learnt to snowboard found Hanazono to be the most beginner-friendly slope. Doesn't offer too much of a challenge for advanced boarders though.
