Niseko, located on the island of Hokkaido, Northern Japan, is a year round destination for both Japanese and international holiday makers.

Originally an Onsen (natural hot spa) resort, popular within Japan but otherwise internationally unknown, the Niseko area, and Hirafu in particular, is now famous throughout Japan and around the world for its exceptional powder snow. Niseko is also one of the fastest growing ski destinations in the world. With its unique Japanese character and mix of international influences, Hirafu is a place unlike any other in the world.

The Ginto Estate will epitomise this respect for nature, blending in with the raw, unparalleled splendor of Hokkaido and all that it has to offer. Truly a four seasons destination, embark on skiing, hiking, rafting, cycling, fishing adventures or simply reinvigorate amidst the quietness of the pinewoods.


Ginto Hirafu is the exclusive quarter of Hirafu. Located just off Route 343, and a mere three-minute drive to Hirafu's premier slopes, Ginto Hirafu is easily accessible by all forms of private and public transportation.
