Niseko is known for its powder white snow that falls fresh almost every day which means a good skiing or snow-boarding experience every time—just ask Isabelle Daza-Semblat and Raymond Gutierrez. Snow days beat sunny days in this area, unless you like skiing in old, compacted snow.

Japan will always have an abundance of good food and there is no shortage of that even in the snowy slopes. Only here can you probably ski in the morning and have some fresh sashimi, uni, crab legs, and salmon roe for lunch. There’s fresh seafood all the time because the ocean is just an hour away from the area.

If skiing and snowboarding is not for you, you can always rent a snowmobile. You have the option to drive it yourself or have an instructor do it for you. Gretchen Barretto and her friends tried it and they had so much fun.
Fancy the floor-to-ceiling windows that offer a great view of Mount Yotei and the fresh snow outside? You too can experience that by booking a villa like Georgina Wilson and her family or a hotel like Gretchen. Either way, it’ll be the perfect place to chill and cuddle up.
