A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
The Wisdom in the Scenery
Sometimes, you travel to discover new cultures and engage in exciting adventures, outside your comfort zone. Yet, other times, the season calls for introspection and self-discovery. Few landscapes in the world reflect the purity and simplicity your spirit craves for, as that of Northern Japan. You have only just arrived at the hotel in Niseko, from Chitose Airport, and you already seem permeated with a newfound wisdom.
Colours and Flavours of Hokkaido
The landscape is snowcovered, white and subdued. The delicate flavours of local cuisine allow you to become even more grounded in this purifying experience. The sushi dinner last night brought unsuspected accents to your palate, and set the mood for the slopes of the day: you flow as in a white dream, and the mountains are there to bear witness.Learn more
A Natural Bridge between the Souls
The nature surrounding Niseko speaks to you profoundly. As you dive into the hot spring waters and let your body relax, a fundamental realisation takes you by surprise… You are brought closer to you partner and together, you become protagonists in a winter drama. You both agree: there is love in nature.
You have discovered that this is a journey for pure experiences. As your personal instructor corrects your form, with childlike mischievousness you let yourself loose and glide through the snow effortlessly. It is fun, simply fun.
A Love Affair with Nature
The gorgeous mountains call you. You heed their call and set out to explore them. It is the purest form of skiing. If you see a slope you like, you take it. If you see an alluring trail through the trees, you make your way along it. Come the spring, the snow will be gone and the love affair you had with the mountains will remain a secret between you and Niseko.
