A note from Akazora
Updated 21/05/20


#5 of 124 Speciality lodging in Kutchan-cho
Akazora apartments are a stunning development in the heart of the village of Niseko; one of the world’s fastest growing ski resorts and Asia’s premier four season destination. A boutique development where Western convenience meets beautiful Japanese inspired design.This eye catching building is in a prime central village location. Only a stones throw from the ski slopes and less than a minute from the main road where a mouth-watering variety of delectable restaurants have become clear favourites among locals and tourists. A nearby resort ski shuttle stop can whisk you around the village and ski field, or a short 7 minute walk will bring you to the closest ski lift.

The Akazora was a great choice for our recent snow trip. Centrally located in Hirafu, right next to the Village Bus Stop (to get you up to the slopes) and walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The studio was quite large overall (much larger than what I had expected), with a good kitchenette and nice bathroom (you can tell it is relatively new compared to other properties in Niseko). The ski lockers are down in the basement and have enough room to comfortably store gear for 2 people. The ground floor studios can be noisy when people are coming home after a big night but it wasn't too noisy overall during our stay. I would be happy to stay here again.

Great location and excellently appointed apartments. They think of everything from a washing machine including the washing powder to all the kitchen stuff you might need. The flats are nicely decorated, very clean and very comfortable. They are also really big, plenty of space for all your stuff. The lockers are large, warm for your ski gear and the bus stops right in front of the building. The location couldn’t be better for bars and restaurants as well. This was so much nicer than being in a hotel. Highly recommended!

We were fortunate to have spent 5 nights in the wonderful Akazora Apartments, Niseko.The accommodation is in a central location right in the heart of beautiful Hirafu ski village. There are a great selection of ski rental stores, shops, dining options and supermarkets, all within a few minutes walk of Akazora.There is a bus stop only a few steps away, that enables guests to easily reach all of the surrounding ski fields by the very efficient and regular shuttle service or you can easily walk to Hirafu in a few minutes. MnK Resorts & Hospitality manage this property and I cannot speak highly enough of their staff . Ski Rentals, transportation, lift passes, transfers, day tours, grocery's and so much more, can all be arranged prior to arrival or the team will help arrange these for you when you are here. The team from MnK are a pleasure to deal with and they go above and beyond with their friendly and helpful service. If you are looking for ski hire or great coffee -the service and coffee offered by Rhythm is outstanding ! Rhythm go above and beyond to ensure that you receive personal assitance and great care when being fitted with quality rental gear. Special thanks to Martin - for all the assitance that he gave to two Aussie travellers. Whilst this was our first visit to Niseko , it definitely won't be our last. You cannot beat the location ,facilities or services offered by Akazora and thank you to the team of MnK for making our stay so special.
