Chalet Murasaki is in the best position in the Upper Hirafu Village of Niseko Japan with the Ace Family chair lift right outside.
The slopes can’t get any closer than this, and it’s a beginner slope so everyone in the group will be able to enjoy the ski-in ski-out convenience.
Chalet Murasaki can be rented as a 2-bedroom apartment, plus 6-bedroom house; or as an 8-bedroom house accommodating 14 to 18 guests comfortably over 3 floors.

There are 4.5 bathrooms over 3 floors with the master bedroom enjoying the hinoki-lined ensuite and luxuriously deep Japanese style bath, or ofuro.
The first floor also has another tub in a second bathroom. Toto NeoRest toilets and fixtures, are supplied in the bathrooms.
Chalet Murasaki blends spacious, up-to-date Western fittings and finishes with key Japanese luxuries such as a bathroom of hinoki wood, famed for the forest-fresh scent it exudes.
Astutely placed antiques and artefacts complement the selection of colourful hand-knotted-style floor rugs.
The media room is equipped with 55″ cable TV and Bose surround sound, high speed Wifi broadband, and an extensive library of books on Japan. The first-floor laundry is equipped with washer and dryer.
