3 Bedrooms

These are exclusive and new luxurious apartment suites in the middle of the upper village. Opening only for the 2014/2015 season, Hirafu 188 consists of only two abodes, each with three bedrooms and with every promise of being at the cutting edge. Stylish open living spaces and elegant furnishings merely play second fiddle to the expansive windows and balconies, presenting magnificent mountain views. They have been developed with care free living very much in mind and thoughtfully appointed with all modern fixtures.

The two apartments sit above a fashionable retail space, featuring a café serving some of the best coffee in Niseko. There is also a supermarket / deli - how convenient is that?!

On the main street, Hirafu Zaka, in Upper Hirafu village. Hirafu 188 is surrounded by shops, equipment rental shops, largers hotels and cafés. You are within minutes to the closest chairlifts, and all the restaurants, nightlife and amenities of central Hirafu village.

Distances to:

Ski Lifts: 100 metres
Shop(s): 50 metres
Restaurants and Bars: 50 metres

The two Hirafu Aprtments have been priced keenly, simply because it is their first year. We know the operator in charge and trust in the quality. An indicative per night cost for a Three Bedroom Apartment during low season would be circa ¥52,000 (£300), rising markedly to circa ¥141,000 (£815) during the peak periods.We get the feeling that these two apartments will be significantly more expensive in future seasons, once established.
