Studio / 2 Bedrooms

The elegant birchwood surrounds of Sekka Ni are tucked away down in the Lower Village - still only a short walk to anywhere you need to be. This is a condominium with several different options, but whichever you choose there will be fantastic views over to Mt Yotei. The options include a spacious two bedroom deluxe apartment, which spreads over three floors, and there is also another two bedroom apartment which can be further broken down and rented out as two separate one-bed studio apartments.

For us, the main plus for Sekka Ni is the location. We like being in the Lower Village, it feels a little more exclusive and is certainly quieter. The main draw, however, is the public onsen directly opposite - one of Hirafu’s best natural hot springs. The convenience of these soaking waters makes it an integral part of the accommodation, as far as we are concerned.

In Lower Hirafu village. This is the terriory of the shuttle bus, as its just that bit too far to walk in the morning to the lifts unless you are feeling particularly energetic. The nearest bus stop is just a two minute walk away. To get up to the Middle Village, with its shops, bars and restaurants would take just four minutes to walk - but remember the Lower Village has possibilities also.

Distances to:

Ski Lifts: 650 metres
Restaurants and Bars: 100 metres
Shuttle Bus: 50 metres

An indicative per night cost for a Studio Apartment during low season would be about ¥17,500 (£100), rising to circa ¥60,000 (£350) per night during the peak periods for a Two Bedroom Apartment.
