This is Mountainside Palace’s biggest advantage. You can’t get any more central in Hirafu. Located just off highway 343 and one block away from the main Hirafu intersection, everything is at your fingertips. A short walk will reward you with the best selection of Hirafu’s famous restaurants, shops, bars, and more. Moreover, just a short walk can take you to any of Grand Hirafu Resort’s base ski lifts. Getting around Niseko in general can be difficult without a car. Living outside of the village requires riding a bus (if there is one near your accommodation), or even a taxi if you stay out after the buses finish running. Living in the center of the action gives you access to everything you need, and will save you time and money by avoiding transportation costs. This prime Hirafu location is amazing for any type of Niseko visitor, whether you came for the legendary powder or the incredible food culture.
