Niseko Grand HIRAFU

Niseko Grand HIRAFU Summer Gondola

The Summer Gondola carries visitors 500 meters up the hillside of Niseko Annupuri.
In the crisp mountain air, visitors can take in a panoramic view across Mount Yotei and the Niseko area.

Niseko Grand HIRAFU MTB Downhill Course

The Mountain Bike Downhill Course was opened at the same time as the Summer Gondola, on July 16, 2016. This downhill course runs approximately 3,000 meters along the ski slopes, dropping over 475 meters from top to bottom in the process. This Downhill course is the real deal for intermediate and advanced riders.

Niseko Grand HIRAFU MTB Flowtrail

This is a smooth trail that utilizes the natural contours of the ski slopes at the base of Grand Hirafu. This type of trail makes you feel like you’re banking or riding a wave, and is becoming popular in Europe. The trail is 1,400m long and is also suitable for beginner riders.

Hanazono Golf

Set in a beautiful natural setting it also offers stunning vistas of Mt. Yotei and the surrounding Annupuri mountain range. The course offers great variety in its layout which accentuates the breathtaking views on offer as you play through the various types of terrain and navigate some elevation changes especially on the back 9. With the addition of excellent facilities, Hanazono Golf should not be missed on your golf holiday.


Rafting is by far Niseko’s favourite outdoor activity. For a more challenging (and cold) time, visit during Spring. If you can not and are looking for a more relaxed ride, visit throughout Summer and Autumn. Book direct with Hanazono for the best details.

Road and Mountain Bike Rentals

Rent a selection of Road and Mountain bikes from Giant, Colnago, BS Anchor and Louis Garneau. Now with our Hirafu Niseko Store open during Summer, it’s even easier to arrange a rental for your time in Niseko.


An adrenaline fueled, physically challenging, adventure activity not for the faint hearted. Wearing a wetsuit and vest to explore a network of canyons and deep pools where you will jump, slide, swim and finish off with a 6m jump into a deep blue pool. Up for a bit of a challenge, try our canyoning course throughout the Summer months.


Summer Gondola

6 minute ride to the 1000 M level will provide a beautiful view of the surrounding area.
After the green of the summer, one can come again to enjoy the foliage of the trees in the autumn time as well.
