My 8D7N Japan Hokkaido Trip Itinerary to Niseko and Sapporo

Niseko Sapporo Itinerary
Just a quick update on my recent trip to Hokkaido earlier this month in February, where we went to Niseko (6D5N) and Sapporo (2D2N) for altogether 8 days. It was a lovely trip with lots and lots of snow in Niseko… It was so breathtakingly beautiful and I just couldn’t get enough of snow! Wish I could stay longer in Niseko, the picture perfect winter wonderland with non-stop snowing (see video below)… Full review and more pictures of all the places that I’d been are updated per item as you scroll down my Niseko and Sapporo itinerary.

Day 1
1. Overnight direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to New Chitose International Airport in Air Asia X’s Premium Flatbed. Direct flight and flat bed seat… Can’t complain right?

  1. hi,
    could you share with me some details?

    me and my mom intend to travel to niseko on 2-3feb 1 night – we are not driving hence will it be possible to travel from /to kutchan station via public bus( if any)/or shuttle bus by hotel ( if any ) to the Niseko Prince Hotel Hirafutei?

    also, is the hotel near to hirafu/niseko village where all the pub restaurants located? will it be possible to access to anove from the hotel?

    1. I'm not quite sure about the public transport arrangement from Kutchan station, you probably should check with the hotel directly. I'd recommend direct bus from Sapporo if you're coming to from Sapporo, the bus will drop you very near the hotel.
      Niseko Prince Hotel Hirafutei is quite near to Abucha 2 and the rest of places i'd been in Hirafu when you refer to my itinerary. Hope this helps.
