About THE orchards

The Orchards Niseko is a community development of houses nestled between Mount Yōtei and Mount Annupuri. The temperate climate and fresh mountain air are invigorating to children and adults alike. The Orchards Niseko is delightfully conducive to a family escape given its beautiful natural setting with spectacular views. Located on the eastern side of Hirafu – about one kilometre along Route 343 (going towards Niseko) the location provides convenient access to local attractions and activities including Grand Hirafu resort and other local ski areas in winter.

In summer, a pleasant one km walk or short ride from the centre of town, the community offers luxury modern chalets set between the tranquil pond and the tall pine and sakura cherry trees. It’s secluded enough to hear the grasshoppers chirping at night and still close to hiking trails, first class restaurants and activities like the local dairy farm (Milk Kobo choux crème, anyone?).

Just like you, this will be the place that your kids will want to bring their friends to – having experienced Niseko’s powder snow and snow boarding in winter, they will want to come here in summer too. This holiday home will be the location of great family memories whether they be activity-related or just spending time in the serene, natural beauty and healthy lifestyle of Niseko.
