SEAMLESS FAMILY-FRIENDLY HOLIDAYS IN NISEKO

Hokkaido’s Niseko has a well-earned reputation for great powder snow, high-quality food and luxurious accommodation. For many people in Japan, visiting the town can be like taking a ski vacation overseas only with a shorter flight, less expense and familiar comforts. The pandemic has changed the way people travel, with the demand for stand-alone properties being an important consideration.

Chalets at The Orchards are perfectly situated in an area close to the ski hill.
