When it comes to skiing and snow sports, Niseko—a luxurious ski destination in Japan’s Hokkaido region—has become Asia’s most popular destination, thanks to its abundant, powder-soft snow and enviable terrain.
Nestled in the heart of Hokkaido’s iconic ski town is Niseko Kyo, a new luxury property that offers an elegant sanctuary for well-travelled urbanites looking for a winter retreat. Located in the lively Hirafu village with direct access to the Ace Family Lift, the ski-in ski-out property is set to open in 2023.
The Japanese spirit of ukiyo and natural surrounds inspired Niseko Kyo's design, emphasising the philosophy of living in the moment. Offering an impeccable experience in an idyllic setting, the exclusive property houses just 18 residences, each with a private natural onsen for comforting moments that rejuvenate the body and mind.
The residences are fashioned to highlight the magnificent views of Mt Yotei, encouraging you to pause appreciate nature and a slower pace of life. The large windows also flood residences with natural light, using it as an architectural medium to capture the ethereal expression of komorebi, the play between light and shadow as sunrays filter through trees.
When it comes to interiors, neutral hues and materials such as timber, marble limestone and quartz were used to bring nature’s serenity indoors. Each room is furnished with modern and welcoming touches, complete with the finest amenities that help celebrate the pleasures of life.
