7-Day Hokkaido Snow Tow Lodging
We stay in lodging which is comfortable and functional. For the first 3 nights, lodging will be shared with up to three room mates (4 total per room), while the latter 3 nights you have some more space in twin/triple rooms!
Our lodging in Niseko is within close walking distance to all of the fun amenities of the downtown Hirafu area. Our lodging gives us lots of access to everything Hirafu has to offer during the off-hours including bars, restaurants, the food truck spot, convenience stores, and of course the Niseko Hirafu ski base.
The common area in our lodge features a big flat screen tv, great sound system, lounging sofas and free wifi. The basement area is your one stop entertainment room complete with a ping pong table, various games and instruments including guitars and piano.
Our accommodation has shared showers (split gender) and shared community toilets.
In Asahikawa (Northern Hokkaido)
In contrast to the "Resort Hotel" feel of our accommodation in Niseko, the goal of our accommodation in Asahikawa is to give guests a more authentic, non-touristy experience of staying in a very pleasant business hotel that's walking distance to all the downtown area has to offer including bars, restaurants, karaoke joints, street vendors, tako yaki stalls and more. Instead of just being another foreigner/ski-tourist in Niseko, in Asahikawa the locals are excited and curious about foreigners and love to strike up conversations!
Being a pleasant and new business hotel located in an urban area, the rooms are more compact than the rooms of our first hotel. The hotel's daily buffet breakfast, featuring many Hokkaido specialties, both Japanese and Western, is sure to give you the boost you need to surf Japow's white waves!
- Room size: 22 square meters or 236 square feet
- Bed size: two single size beds
- In-house Onsen hot springs with a sauna and cold pool (split gender, nudity required as is the custom in Japan)
- Entire hotel features free Wi-Fi.
- There are no safes in the room for your valuables, and the hotel recommends leaving valuables at the front desk where it is not kept under lock-and-key. While this has never been a problem as Japan is the safest country in the world when it comes to theft, you'll need to keep your valuables on you if this is a concern for you.
- The location is walking distance the entire scene that Asahikawa has to offer including bars, restaurants, karaoke joints, street vendors, tako yaki stalls and more!
