Formerly known as ‘Higashiyama’ meaning East Mountain, Niseko Village is located between Hirafu and Annupuri villages and sits at the base of the Niseko Village ski resort.
Niseko Village features two ski in / ski out resort hotels: Green Leaf Hotel, and Hilton Niseko Village. Each hotel enjoys a distinct location, surrounded by nature and serviced by a different ski lift.
These hotels are perfect for families and those wanting the facilities of a large hotel with everything under one roof. The Green Leaf Hotel and Hilton Niseko Village both offer ski hire and ski school meeting locations on site with Niseko Village also offering child care and a great range of winter activities to keep the kids occupied.
Niseko Village also offers self-contained accommodation options: the stunning Kasara luxury townhouses, constructed as traditional Edo period Machiya houses and the stylish Hinode Hills apartments both located close to The Green Leaf Hotel.
Moving away from the ski lifts, there are even more self-contained options: Koa Niseko, Snow Dog & Foxwood. Shakuzen Chalets and Yukihyo are the ultimate off-the-beaten-track forest retreat.

Niseko Village Ski Resort
Beginners and Intermediates are well catered for at Niseko Village with long mellow green piste runs coming into all four base areas (Rest House, Green Leaf Hotel,and Hilton Niseko Village) and intermediate red runs running top to bottom.
Dedicated beginner learning areas and ski school meeting locations at village level next to the Green Leaf Hotel and the Hilton are super convenient for First Timers and anyone taking lessons.
The steeper ungroomed route down the mountain starting with the famous Superstition run is a favourite with advanced off piste skiers.
Powderhounds looking for sidecountry off piste terrain should head for the Niseko Gondola at the Hilton, then the Wonderland Chair and traverse over to the Annupuri gates or to Niseko Village’s Mizuno-no-Sawa area that can be accessed following a briefing at the Ski Patrol House.
Given its multiple base areas and fewer accommodation options, lift lines at Niseko Village are relatively short with the Niseko Gondola providing an efficient and fast route to the top. This is ideal on a powder day and convenient when wanting to explore the other ski resorts of Niseko United.
Dining & Nightlife
Each of the ski in / ski out hotels and apartment buildings feature high quality in-house restaurants with Hilton Niseko Village offering the widest range of cuisines as well as the Ezo Pub sports bar.
Pro Tip: A visit to the Hilton for the buffet lunch followed by a soak in the onsen is the perfect end to a morning of thigh-high powder shredding.
'The Village', located between The Hilton and the Ritz Carlton, is a pretty collection of boutique restaurants and shops designed in classic Machiya style.
Located in the Higashiyama Pension Village, the local Takahashi farm operates a shop called Milk Kobo serving unbelievably good ice cream, yoghurt drinks and choux buns as well as supplying dairy ingredients for its own on-site pizza and buffet restaurants.
Niseko Village is family-oriented and does not offer much in the way of lively nightlife. However, neighbouring Hirafu village does offer a huge range of dining and nightlife options and can be reached via any of the shuttle bus services operated between the two villages or local taxi.
