We are delighted to bring you this incredible and unique opportunity in the ski resort of Niseko-Hirafu.

And now it is for sale in its entirety, giving the lucky buyer a host of options.
This exceptional real estate listing presents an extremely rare opportunity to own a stunning 593 sqm plot of land that is ski-in ski-out, providing direct access to some of the best slopes in the world. Located in the highly sought-after upper Niseko-Hirafu area, the true value of this offering lies in the potential to redevelop.
Whether you are looking to build your dream ski chalet or an investment property, this land provides endless possibilities. The location is highly desirable, with easy access to the Ace Family lifts and the planned new gondola and lifts by Tokyu Resort.
The Current Property
Japow! If that got your attention, then this is the place for you. The shortest distance from your bed to the ski lifts, these condos are everything you'd expect out of a ski condo, which means that in a place like Hirafu, they're in high demand. The apartment building is made up of two 2 bedroom apartments and two 3 bedroom apartments.
In the 2 Bedroom you get, you guessed it, two comfy bedrooms, full kitchen, living and dining areas and views straight out to the Family Ski Base. In the 3 Bedroom, the expansive master bedroom is located upstairs with its own ensuite bathroom. Who needs the weather forecast! Step outside and ski straight to the lift from these units.
Of course, they're conveniently located, of course there's parking, of course there's... but really, what you care about is to lay the first tracks in japow, and this is the best place to do it from. Powder power!

Don’t miss out on possibly the last opportunity to own a prime piece of ski-in ski-out real estate in one of the most sought-after ski resorts in the world: Niseko-Hirafu.
If you don't know about Niseko yet... where have you been? Best known for the incredible amounts of light, dry powder that blankets the resort each season, with an annual snowfall average of around 15 metres, Niseko has grown beyond the snow into Asia’s most international winter resort, with accommodation and F&B to suit all tastes and budgets, a vibrant nightlife and a comprehensive range of English-language services.
The growth in popularity has been driven not only by the frankly unbelievable amount of snow, but by the development of hotels and homes that have truly turned this mountain resort into the Aspen of Asia. Demand for holiday accommodation is at an all-time high, but ski-in ski-out properties always generate the best occupancy and the highest nightly rates over winter.
This truly is a unique opportunity to develop the next, and best, ski-in ski-out property in the top ski resort in Asia.
