Chalet Seshu is an excellent choice for families with children. Its split-level design provides plenty of room for kids to play around in, while the ground floor TV-lounge with Apple TV and PlayStation will keep them occupied when the weather or the mood calls for a quiet day in. Not that there will be much time for boredom in any case. Hirafu and the Niseko area are an extraordinary playground for the whole family. During winter, Niseko Base Snowsports offers classes for children aged three and older, while the quieter ski resort of Hanazono is a good option for little ones who are still learning the ropes.
Winter camps such as Edventure provide children aged 4-14 a wonderful all-round snow experience which teaches them skills like crafting, backcountry exploring, snow cave building and avalanche awareness. Other year-round activities for children and adults include cultural experiences such as tea ceremony demonstrations, sushi making lessons and traditional drumming lessons.
The popular indoor pool at Alpen Hotel Niseko provides a great day out for the whole family, including a child-friendly ‘onsen’ upstairs. Meanwhile, the NAC adventure park is perfect for young explorers during summer, offering family rafting and treetop climbing, as well as night-time forest walks specifically designed for kids.
