Kawasemi is located in Hirafu’s premier luxury estate, The Escarpment which borders the bottom of Hirafu village.
The Escarpment is a master planned estate running along either side of a single road that runs parallel to the bottom border of Hirafu village. Between The Escarpment and Mt Yotei is nothing but rice fields, forests and wilderness.
The estate is characterised by its seclusion and separation from the hustle and bustle of the village proper, and the resulting feeling of immersion in the Hokkaido wilderness.
It’s about a 15-minute walk uphill to the lifts. Lower Hirafu at the end near the Escarpment is home to some hidden, out-of-the-way restaurants.
Within an easy walk are a dozen or so restaurants and bars, as well as Yukoro Onsen hot spring baths.
Niseko, Hokkaido, Japan

A world-class ski destination, Niseko receives 14m of snow per season on average. Offering 38 lifts, 4 developed, inter-linked resorts, 47km of groomed slopes, 1000m of vertical, and the longest run stretching 5600m, Niseko is the largest of Hokkaido’s ski areas, and overall the most well-rounded winter resort on the island.
There is a good mix of groomed runs for all levels, from first-timers through expert powder hounds. There is also a terrain park with half-pipes, table tops, round quarters and rails etc… a variety of terrain to suit boarders of different abilities.
That being said, novices going down the slope for the first time may want to avoid the crowds in peak powder season and consider some of the quieter times (spring).
