Sekka Ni - Niseko

Niseko Experience

The locale

Apartment Sekka Ni is located in Hirafu’s middle village, close to some of its best eateries, including Rin Japanese Restaurant and Niseko’s Yummy Pizza – excellent choices when all that outdoor activity has you craving for some necessary carbs.

Don’t let heavy snowfall deter you from having a good time. Many of Hirafu’s pavements are heated which means you’ll be able to reach your destination ‘slip and slide’-free. There’s an excellent range of evening entertainment venues in the village, from the quirky Bar Gyu with its exceptional range of rare Japanese whiskies, to live music and late-night DJ sets at Wild Bill’s.

After a long day in the great outdoors, there’s no better way to relax than by visiting one of the many thermal spas or ‘onsen’. Apartment Sekka Ni is close to Hotel Hirafutei Onsen and Hotel Alpen Onsen – both renowned for their beautiful facilities and excellent rejuvenation treatments.

The apartment is also a ten-minute walk or a short drive from the Grand Hirafu ski gondola which gives you access to some of the area’s steepest slopes and also caters well to beginners. Simply call one of our on-call drivers to drive you there in the morning and pick you up again in the afternoon.

Niseko - Japan

How to get there

Getting to Niseko is easy with daily direct flights to New Chitose Airport from Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taipei, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai and Beijing.

Rental cars are available at the airport all year round from a number of suppliers, and it is a scenic two hour drive to Niseko.

If not comfortable driving, we recommend a private transfer for groups. A convenient airport coach transfer is the best way to travel. Please contact our reservations department with your flight details to book airport transfers or rental cars.

Alternatively, you can travel worry-free on JR Rail from CTS (New Chitose Airport) via Sapporo, with a quick transfer at Otaru, to Kutchan JR Station. Trains are always on time and leave approximately every 90 minutes.

If coming from Tokyo, you can experience the famous Shinkansen (bullet train), which travels up to 320km an hour and hurtles through an undersea tunnel that connects the main island of Honshu with Hokkaido. Travel time is around 4 hours to Hakodate where you can connect to a regional train up to JR Kutchan (3.5 hours).

    The help from the staff at elite havens was tremendous. From check-in, when Alice drove us to and from our previous accommodation to grab our stuff, to the check-out courtesy ride to the welcome centre, the stay was as easy as could be! Great staff at Elite Havens, everyone was very helpful and nice :)

    Thank so much for having us! We had a fantastic time. This apartment could not have been more perfect for us. We can't recommend the accommodation and the team highly enough. Nothing was too much to ask and we really appreciated all of the help and tips they provided. Looking forward to coming back again soon. AAA+

    Our stay at Sekka Ni 1 was amazing! The property has Elite Havens drivers that can take you to the Hirafu lifts each day and they even helped with transportation to and from the property. We were a short walk away from many restaurants and the main part of town. We were also provided a package of breakfast food for a few days. This is the perfect spot for a couple to stay!

    Thank you so much for your amazing hospitality. We can’t express how helpful you have been during the planning stages and throughout our stay. Everyone has been amazingly friendly. Niseko has been wonderful! The kids loved ski school and were sad to have to leave. Off piste skiing after a heavy snowfall was incredible. The mountain was full of adventure. The kids say its one of the best vacations they have ever had. They loved it here. Hope to be back soon. You and your staff in Niseko were all amazing and I will recommend Elite Havens to all of my colleagues and friends. Your assistance and effort were much appreciated. Thank you so much.

    Dear Elite Havens team - Thank you for making our trip to Niseko unforgettable! Not only were you all so helpful, you are all welcoming and kind people. The accommodation was perfect! Clean, homey and relaxing! We couldn't be more grateful for the lifts to and from places around the mountain (saving us from slipping on the ice). We will be back. Thanks again.

    A super duper trip for all. We have had a great time. So much snow. Snowed 5 days straight! Amongst the skiing we have had many funny moments on the mountain! Night skiing was excellent powder, very cool, bars great. We shall be back one day. Thank you team Elite Havens for looking after us all so efficiently.

    We've had the most wonderful stay in Niseko - from waking up to powder, sitting down to our complimentary breakfast and coffee. The ease of the free lifts from the fantastic team - we could not have wanted more. To Julia, Daniel, Emma - such friendly and energetic people to greet us every morning when we are spirited and eager and every afternoon when our legs are weary. We cannot wait to come back to Niseko again and will be recommending everyone to do so in the mean time. Best Honeymoon destination ever!

    A massive thank you for all the kindness and attention to detail you have provided in making this a killer time for us (we are having a belated/extra 20 year wedding anniversary of sorts). You have all far exceeded our expectations and we are just so content with everything (some extra snow would be nice if you can swing that too). Also wanted to say a particular shout out for taking care of our trash and washing up our kitchen and everything else. We weren’t aware that that level of service was part of the accommodation so it was a very pleasant surprise.

    The place is super Japanese style, very cozy. They have cleaning people come every day to wash my dishes and clean my room. They have a concierge team, OMG! They helped me book lift tickets and bus tickets (hard to do as foreigner and if you miss the timing, you have to pay 300 USD for private ride from Sapporo). They also have private shuttle service that takes you from home to lift, to supermarket, and to random places free of charge as long as the destination is within Hirafu region. They have 2 cars running the the area. Finally, the highlight, they prepare newly bought bread, eggs, milk, bacon, juice, and butter in the fridge before I arrived! I have never been to an Airbnb that buys me food. Would definitely come back!

    Wonderful, cosy studio apartment in great location close to restaurants - good for a couple. Well equipped with a kitchen and washing machine - they even had some complimentary breakfast foods. Andrew was very generous to pick us up at Kutchan station on arrival and also take us to the coach for an early morning check out. Highly recommended.

    This is a lovely apartment with an excellent view of Mt. Yotei - especially in the morning when you wake to start a day at Niseko. Even though, throughout our stay here, we didn't have a lot of snow on the slopes, Sekka Ni makes up for it. The amazing kitchen area let us have a lot of brightness during our dinner and breakfast moments. I will recommend to all my friends.

    The home is modern and comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. It is also very thoughtful of you to provide food for self cooking of breakfast. The little touches like condiments and butter is much appreciated. The location is also very good as it is close to many streets. Also appreciate the personal attention of Andrew to meet us at the house and show us around and to arrange for collection of a parcel that was sent here. Thank you Andrew for your attention to detail.
