        One of Tohoku’s six prefectures is Yamagata, located just north of Niigata Prefecture along the coast. It's a hidden gem for travelers in search of authentic cultural experiences and outdoor activities.

        Into the Mystic

        While you probably won’t encounter an elusive river sprite in the highlands of the Northern Japan Alps, you may feel a bit lightheaded from the refreshing thin air, remarkable vistas and mystical aura of the mountains and valleys in Kamikochi.

A New Hanazono is Here

December 7th, 2019 marked the opening day of the Hanazono Niseko ski resort for the 2019-20 season. There was plenty of snow in the lead up so all three chairlifts and resort runs were operating. This season welcomes a series of exciting updates and events at Hanazono Niseko—don’t miss out!

Park Hyatt Niseko Hanazono Hotel and Residences

If you visited Hanazono last winter, you probably noticed the construction at the base of the resort. Opening January 20, 2020, these new structures are the home of Park Hyatt Niseko Hanazono, ski-in-ski-out luxury accommodation. The development overlooks the Hanazono base and beginner slopes and includes extensive new retail and dining options.

Hanazono EDGE

This swanky restaurant and bar is located near the Hana No. 1 chairlift and will be serving your Hanazono favorites all winter long. Split over two levels the new facility seats 529 people, increasing capacity by 60% over the resort’s previous restaurant. With floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides, the view of the resort and surrounding area are spectacular no matter where you sit.

Hanazono 308 Ski Center

Inside the fully refurbished Hanazono 308 you’ll find Niseko Sports Rentals and Retail and the lift ticket and activities sales counters. Niseko Sports Rentals and Retail store has expanded to include Niseko Boot Lab, the resort’s own custom boot-fitting facility (will also be available at Park Hyatt).

Families will enjoy letting their kids play at Galaxy of Kidz, an indoor adventure area and the only one of its kind in Niseko.

Hana1 Café

Hana1 Café continues to serve the same delicious coffee but has found a new home in a nice wood cabin.

Upcoming Events

Until Jan. 18, 2020

The Niseko Sports New Year Sale will be offering 20% off selected items at two of their stores at Hirafu-zaka and Hanazono 308.

Jan. 24-26

The 24th All Hokkaido Ski Championship Snowboard Slopestyle Asian Cup and 2020 FIS Japan Slopestyle Open Asian Cup will be held in Hanazono’s main park area from Jan. 24-26. The main park will be closed to the public but everyone can come and watch world-class athletes compete.

Jan. 24-25

Ski or take the free shuttle over to Hanazono on Jan. 24-25 to celebrate Chinese New Year. There will be two performances of shishimai (traditional Chinese lion dance). During this act the performers mimic a lion’s movements in a lion costume to bring good luck and fortune. The Yotei Diako will also be thrilling the crowd with a traditional taiko performance.

Other Exciting Activities at Hanazono

Below is the current list of available services:

The Hanazono Shuttle Bus currently only operates every 30 minutes, instead of the standard 20 minutes. Be sure to check the Hanazono Niseko page for updates.
