A mountain-view room in "the Tuscany of Asia" on the breathtaking Japanese island of Hokkaido
There's a sense of otherworldly charm in the mountain town of Niseko (known as the Tuscany of Asia). It could be due to the presence of the towering Mount Yotei, a behemoth that watches silently over its surrounding Hokkaido countryside, bursting with color from flowers and greenery in the summer. Popular among adventure-seekers, honeymooners and those seeking an idyllic escape from the city, the town boasts many charms impossible to describe in totality. They have to be experienced.
On the foothills of the mountain, you'll be able to view the Mount Yotei in all its glory from your room. It's the perfect base for exploring Niseko's range of activities, free from touristy buzz. Take the time to hike through Niseko's many picturesque trails, go golfing, visit local farms, go horseback riding, take a hot-air-balloon ride or pick up some Japanese cooking skills from the locals. There's an endless array of things to do.
In your downtime, you'll be pampered by traditional Japanese hospitality and spoiled by luxury amenities, stylish accommodations and panoramic views from your room. The boutique hotel, elegantly appointed, is all class and understated glamour. Warm up in its spectacular natural hot spring, or "onsen". Just for hotel guests, it has an indoor and outdoor area. For those a little shy about sharing the onsen, the hotel also has a private onsen that can be booked.
