Japan Ski Week 2023

February 11 - 18, 2023
Niseko Resort, Hokkaido, Japan

Our host club is The Kutchan Rotary Club.

There’s nothing quite like Niseko in winter! The secret’s out. Niseko’s colder months are truly a winter wonderland. Frigid air from Siberia is pushed south to Hokkaido, picks up moisture from the Sea of Japan, and unloads incredible amounts of snow on the first thing in its path: Niseko. This “snow machine” produces the most consistent snowfall in the entire world during the winter months. Niseko has recently erupted in popularity for powder-hungry skiers and snowboarders.

Introducing Niseko’s youngest #goodvibes hotel. Midtown Niseko is a sweet spot Niseko accommodation with all the stuff you need and none of the stuff you don’t. It is an accommodation facility that just opened in August 2019, and is a relaxing space that blends in with nature. There is a fitness gym and a dining restaurant, and there is also a laundry and kitchen area where you can cook for yourself, nice for long stays.

Niseko United is part of the IKON Pass

Japan’s #1 ski destination, located 60 miles south of Sapporo, is comprised of four interlinked ski resorts. Niseko United is made up of: Hanazono, Grand Hirafu, Niseko Village and Annupuri. You can purchase lift passes with access to all 4 for the ultimate adventure or just half the mountain – the Hanazono and Grand Hirafu resort areas.

Travel to Japan - VISA requirements

The current Japan travel restrictions require all visitors to be booked through an official tour group on an approved tour package. The Prime Minister of Japan has announced his intention to lessen the restrictions (including airport control) which will be effective on Sept 7. Our Japan Rotarian planning committee is expecting that further details will be announced in coming days and VISA requirement will be removed/mitigated.

They will report to us as soon as they found find out additional details. Nevertheless, District Governor Ishimaru has contacted a travel agency owned by a Rotarian in his district. In the worst case scenario where the visa restrictions remain as they are now, they are expecting that the agent can provide a solution/arrangement to satisfy the rule.
