This excellent modern restaurant is the place to stop when you're skiing in the Hanazono area, the restaurant is always clean and spacious, however this soon fills up at peak times. So time your stop to avoid those times. The Ramen is very good, and worth the 1400 Y . While there we were treated to a young man playing... More

Niseko's little brother. Some great groomed runs , and terrific tree runs along with easy access to often waist deep and untracked slack country powder down past the golf course and through the trees, do not go alone though. Some one always cuts a track through in the morning , just don't miss the turn back to the main resort... More

The slopes in Hanazono were less crowded and there were lots of powdery snow. It's ideal for skiing for beginners and intermediate skiers. It's great for kids with the magic carpets. My 7 year old daughter loved the slopes and had fun skiing there in the afternoon and at night.

We have been to Niseko twice with our small children and prefer the Hanazono ski school over those in Hirafu, where we stayed. The school is well organized, and the runs on the Hanazono hill are just perfect for beginners, young and older, with long and open stretches and only here and there short intermediate parts as challenge. There are... More

Hanazono is the least popular out of the 4 resort that make up Niseko United, the other 3 being Annupuri, Niseko Village, Grand Hirafu. It only has 3 lifts but the good thing about it is its rarely busy. Even in peak season, you rarely have to wait for the lift. My advice is this area not suitable for snowboard... More

I've been to Niseko for 5 years in a row, but I can only give you the view of non skier (My husband and kids ski). We chose this place because we chose NISS ski school for our kids. When we first go there, my kids were still very small so we chose NISS out of the facilities. Other school... More

Best off to go to Nagano if you know how to ski. This is really only good to learn how to ski powder. Once you know... you will need better terrain!
