Whether it's deep powder snow, a unique international community, incredible cuisine or family-friendly activities that you're after, Niseko offers a ski holiday unlike any other. This coming winter season, guests can appreciate all that the area is renowned for and much, much more. Here are our top 8 reasons why we think you'll especially love this winter in Niseko.
If there were ever a year to visit Niseko for a ski or snowboard holiday, this is it. With much of international travel still restricted, the slopes of Niseko will look very different. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing as fewer crowds mean shorter waiting times for chair lifts, more room to move if you are just starting out, and more pockets of untouched powder snow to charge through.
And likely never to be seen again. Thanks to the government-backed Go To Travel campaign, all residents of Japan including foreign nationals are invited to explore the country in return for some incredible perks. Discounts of up to 50% can be applied on accommodation bookings including stays at our three resorts. Local coupons can be exchanged for discounts on transfers, lessons, rentals, lift passes, activities and more. In addition, be sure to check out our specials and packages page for further savings. Combine our incredible winter discounts to access the best deals in Niseko.
Short on time? Enjoy an action packed 24 or 48 hours in Niseko with our new flexible minimum night stay policy. Guests of Country Resort and The Orchards can enjoy a minimum 2 night stay in non-peak periods, and for guests looking to stay at Akazora, we welcome 1 night stays in non-peak periods. Furthermore, to provide guests looking to stay over the Christmas, New Year or Chinese New Year periods with added flexibility, we have opened our minimum night stay policy to 3 nights.
If this year has proven anything, it's that the safety and wellbeing of our guests is more important than ever. Enjoy the friendly and reliable MnK service you know and love, with added peace of mind. We have taken this year as an opportunity to look at what our team already does to provide a safe and clean environment for our guests, and what steps we can take to provide further assurance.

As the situation has evolved over the year, so have our policies. We understand that sometimes plans change and things happen that are out of our control. As a result, we have adapted our accommodation cancellation policy for the winter 2020/21. To see our updated policy click here. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team directly with any questions.
At a time where much of international travel is restricted, fitting in an alpine winter ski holiday is still within reach. Niseko in winter can almost feel like a trip to an international ski resort thanks its unique, global community. A variety of accommodation options are available from secluded, chalets with a Scandinavian feel, to more centralised apartments that are close to all the action.
It's no secret that Japan is home to some of the world's most outstanding culinary delights, and Niseko has no shortage of memorable restaurants, cafes and bars. With fewer anticipated guests this season, it will likely be easier to reserve your favourite dinner spots or drop in to whichever eatery you fancy.
Beyond the mouth watering food, top quality snow and unbelievable discounts, you can guarantee that the team at MnK and community of Niseko will welcome you with warmth and kindness. Whether you're a first timer to the area, or a seasoned regular, we can't wait to meet you this winter.
