That way you get a table with a great view; plus no queues. The restaurant fills up very quickly around 12 noon. Good selection of food, both Western and Japanese. Some meals were pricey. The hot chocolate drink was very nice.

Went to Hanazone for breakfast after some early skiing. The facility is fantastic, we were too early for the main food service which starts at 10 am but the cafe option was good. Expensive food (relatively) but the facility and services are very good.

Hanazono is probably the smallest out of the 4 resorts comprising Niseko united. Pistes are average but it does have a good jib park. NISS Ski school pretty much has the run of the mountain and this place probably doesn't warrant more than a days visit unless your kid is at NISS for the day.

Dear Francesca K, Thank you for your review. NISS is the official ski school operated by HANAZONO. It boasts numerous great facilities (e.g. exclusive rest area for children, magic carpets, etc.) for beginners and kids. We are happy to know that you like our jib park. Though HANAZONO is smaller in size, we have varied great off-piste and sidecountry terrains.... More

Hanazono is one of the 4 ski areas that makes up the Niseko ski resort. It is the most modern and well equipped area in Niseko and once you know your way around it is a hidden pleasure! The runs seem a little flat from the outset but you can find some great tree and powder skiing just off the... More

Visited January 2017 for 2 weeks. Found the place anazing with plently of places to ski and relatively short queues when compared to other resorts that I have visted. There is not much to do (compared to other places I have visited) when you are not in the snow, but the snow sports are fantastic.

We just had 4 days of private lessons with the amazing Rocky. He was exceptionally good with the teenage boys and taught them to manage black runs. Could not have wished for more.
