An incredibly beautiful, uncrowded, and peaceful spot, away from the Hirafu hysteria. It's a 3 minute drive to Annupuri and a 5 minute drive to the Hilton Niseko. Hirafu is 10 - 15 minutes depending on the weather.
What makes it special
It's close to everything, but separate. So you get beautiful, still peace. The panoramic view is sublime. The light is gorgeous. The finish is good quality. Furnishings are functional and good looking. And it's always warm when it needs to be. All these things combine to make Forest Hideaway unique.
Accommodation and amenities
Forest Hideaway sleeps 4 adults or a family of 2 adults and 3 kids in stylish, fully-equipped comfort. There are two bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom (shower, toilet, washbasin). Bedroom 1 has a double bed. Bedroom 2 has two singles. These beds have traditional Japanese futon mattresses. And there are 2 futon mattresses that can be set up in the upstairs living area. Simply unroll them at night and roll up in the morning. It has a kitchen, lounge, and dining area upstairs looking out over the birch forest through wide panoramic windows.
About the area
Soga is an off-the-main-drag birch forest between Annupuri and Niseko Village. There are other houses around, but crowding is not an issue like it is in Hirafu. Yet it's close enough not to matter.
To get the most out of your holiday at Forest Hideaway you will need to rent a car. Without one you are not likely to enjoy it much. The Niseko area has some public transport, but it is not frequent and does not stop everywhere you might wish to travel. For a much more convenient and practical experience we advise that you rent a car. There is so much more that you can do. There is parking in the driveway of Forest Hideaway and all the ski resorts have parking.
Refundable Recycling Fee
Niseko struggles with the huge amount of refuse its visitors create during the peak winter season. So it has a very strict recycling rules. All households must sort refuse before disposal. We ask our guests to help. When you check-in, we take refundable recycling fee of ¥10,000. If you help to recycle as required, we refund the fee when you check-out. If you'd prefer not to sort yourself then we use the fee to pay for the time it takes to sort it ourselves..
