Niseko’s Top Summer Stays


Are you looking for the best accommodation to choose in Niseko during a summer holiday? There are some great reasons to choose Niseko even after the snow has melted – not only does the area have some fantastic activities and views, but rates are a steal!

Niseko is a summer lover’s paradise during the aptly named “Green Season“. The melting snow gives way to a breathtakingly vibrant landscape of thick forest, rolling fields of sunflower, and fertile patchwork farmland.
During June through to August, Niseko offers the perfect respite from the humid weather found further south in Honshu and neighbouring Asian countries.

As one of the country’s leading ski resorts, the Niseko region features some of the most diverse accommodation options in Hokkaido with plenty of options in both western and traditional Japanese style. Here are a few of our favourites:

Snow Dog

A recent addition to the Niseko Annupuri area, Snow Dog Niseko has quickly built a reputation as a phenomenal holiday sanctuary offering modern comforts during Niseko’s green and white seasons.
Well-suited for couples and small families in an affordable price bracket, Snow Dog offers a choice of self-contained apartment options from studios, 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms. Snow Dog is also dog-friendly and welcomes your beloved pets!
