Akari is a beautiful five-bedroom property which sits (what feels like) right in front of Mount Yotei, only separated by snow-covered farmland. The chalet was designed to maximise the picturesque sights of Mount Yotei and the private pine forest no matter where you are in the house, using cleverly placed windows to frame the views. Besides the iconic views, Akari features classic design and a great location minutes from the Hirafu slopes but still surrounded by tranquil nature.

Akari Location

Akari is located in East Hirafu in Niseko, Japan. Here you will be able to enjoy the serenity and peace surrounded by nature, yet head over to the action and ski slopes of Hirafu in no time. Because it is located midway between Hirafu and Hanazono, avid powder hounds can duck out to ski there as well. Hirafu is 2.8km from Akari chalet, around five minutes by car. The shuttle bus stop is also just a five-minute walk away. There are a few great restaurants within walking distance, including a Michelin rated soba noodle restaurant – Ichimura Soba.
