Niseko with Kids – Child-friendly hotels, babysitting services, and snow playgrounds

In 2008, Niseko was voted as one of the world’s top 10 ski resorts.

Suddenly Niseko’s winter tourism boomed, with hundreds of thousands of overseas ski and snowboarding enthusiasts making their way to Niseko each year ever since.

It was an exciting time for Hokkaido locals, as well as for Australians escaping from their hot summer!

The ski resort rapidly adapted to the inbound tourism with English-speaking services, including English ski lessons and English speaking staff at the hotels.

This is great for international families as it is so easy to communicate in English!

Niseko is made up of 4 connecting resorts that can be skied on one lift pass.

  1. Hanazono
  2. Grand Hirafu
  3. Niseko Village
  4. Annupuri

Below are the key links for each of these 4 resorts. Note that skiers often stay at one resort, and then you have the option to catch a shuttle bus to the other resorts in Niseko. So you can take advantage of all the services and activities that each resort has to offer.



Have fun!
