Kimamaya is totally awesome. gorgeous wooden building, spas, massage room, lounge, fabulous french champagne, great art work, and 5 mins to lifts. dvd room for the kids, breakfast included in "the barn" is a huge incentive to stay here.

We spent one night in this highly recommended little hotel. I like the stylish and contemporary, yet homey deco. The breakfast was served in a cafe 3 minutes away from the hotel. The food and ambience are both very good. Do ask Peter for the use of the little bath room. It feels almost like an onsen. All in all,... More

We traveled as 2 couples to snowboard Niseko and even though it was the end of the season and the snow conditions weren't great, we loved staying at the Kimamaya. Peter and Katia were extremely accommodating and helped us to select great dinners each night, as well as carting us back and forth from he mountain base as well as... More

4 of us (2 couples) stayed at Kimamaya in February this year. We had never skied in Japan before and may not ski anywhere else again! However, staying in Kimamaya was as much of a highlight as the quality of the snow. The hotel is small, cozy, spotless and everything well thought out. There is a ski room, dry room,... More

Well, they have done a wonderful job building this property, with a solid timer fit out, warm colours and good furnishings to give it a soft, relaxing, quality feel. The rooms are more or less a larger hotel style with a good work bench, wifi, coffee and tea facilities, small fridge etc and well sorted bathroom with shower and standard... More

The Kimamaya is a superb, boutique style place to stay and the welcome and service from Peter and Katia is both personal and quite incredible. Peter and Katia always seemed to be unobtrusively one step ahead of us in making arrangements that helped our stay feel effortless. We were driven at a moments notice from the front door of the...

Our family of 2 adults & 2 children stayed in Kimamaya during the recent March school holidays. We stayed in the loft room, much to the kids delight. We requested for a child safety gate at the top of the stairs and this was fixed up by the time we we were back from dinner. The room is quite small... More

We had never been skiing in Japan before and we had heard a lot of mixed reports about Niseko.....we were keen to see and hear for ourselves. We are a husband and wife with two small boys 6 and 8 years old. We travelled with four other families and their kids and the idea was to have a family holiday.... More

The classy and lovely hotel located in the heart of hirafu, with bunch of good restaurants, bars around. This is our first time to ski, and choosing Kimamaya makes our trip amazing. Peter and Katia are very nice and help us to explore this area. The room is not big but very comfortable, higher than our expectation! The king size... More
