Year after year, Niseko Landmark View continues to be one of Niseko's most popular and beloved Winter accommodations. It has also received accolades on the world stage, winning the Award for Excellence in Service from the Travel Hospitality Awards in 2019 for Hokkaido. Conveniently located close to the Hirafu Gondola, it's combination of well-designed 2/3 bedroom apartments, stunning views and top class service make it a no-brainer when choosing accommodation in Asia's snow capital.

In this blog we’ll be outlining the outstanding features of Niseko Landmark View - the timeless favourite in Upper Hirafu.

Niseko Landmark View (NLV) is situated on Gondola-zaka (Gondola Street in Japanese), making it one of the best located properties in Upper Hirafu for powderhounds who like to be close to the lifts. It is only a 6 minute walk to the base of the gondola, so first lifts on powder days are a breeze and it’s a great spot if you like to have a break in the comfort of your room on a big skiing/snowboarding day. Some notable facilities on Gondola-zaka include Harro’s Snowsports, a rental and retail shop right next door to NLV, Toyru, a mountain retail shop specialising in local brands and Patagonia merchandise just across the street, An Dining in the Ki Niseko building, Lawson convenience store at the bottom of the street and Izakaya Kakashi, a popular gastro pub just off Gondola-zaka on Koen Avenue. Walking down Koen Ave will take you to the hub of Hirafu village, Hirafu-zaka. This walk takes only 4 minutes and puts you at the heart of Niseko surrounded by restaurants, bars, onsens, rental and retail shops like Niseko Sports, information centres like the Hirafu Welcome Center and Hirafu 188 which has a pharmacy and mini grocer.



Niseko Landmark View has 5 different apartment types:

This apartment is located on the upper (4-6) floors of Niseko Landmark View, with spectacular views of Mount Yotei from the living area and master bedroom. Bedrooms include a master with ensuite and a second bedroom with separate bathroom featuring a bathtub. This apartment is slightly cheaper than a 2 Bedroom Premium apartment since it has not gone through the renovations completed in 2017.


NLV - Deluxe Apartments


These apartments are located on the lower (1-3) floors of Niseko Landmark View, with partial views of Mt Yotei. For 2 bedroom apartments, two layouts are available with 1 having the living and dining rooms facing Mt Yotei and the other having the living room and master bedroom facing Mt Yotei. For 3 bedroom apartments, only one layout is available with the living room and master bedroom facing Mt Yotei. Bedrooms include a master with ensuite and either 1 or 2 other bedrooms with 1 separate bathroom.

NLV - Premium Apartments

These apartments are located on the upper (4-6) floors of Niseko Landmark View, with uninterrupted views of Mt Yotei. For 2 bedroom apartments, two layouts are available with 1 having the living and dining rooms facing Mt Yotei and the other having the living room and master bedroom facing Mt Yotei. For 3 bedroom apartments, only one layout is available with the living room and master bedroom facing Mt Yotei. Bedrooms include a master with ensuite and either 1 or 2 other bedrooms with 1 separate bathroom.




NLV - Views

Niseko Landmark View apartments are angled for optimum views of the stunning Mt Yotei, Hokkaido’s Mt Fuji. Premium and Standard apartments will have uninterrupted views of the mountain which towers over the village for a magical and majestic backdrop to your Winter holiday. Premium and Standard rooms will also have ski hill views from the bedrooms and bathrooms on the other side of the apartment so they are great for ski buffs who like to check the conditions each morning. Deluxe rooms will only have partial views of Mt Yotei due to a tree line that blocks some of the view for the lower levels. All apartments have floor-to-ceiling windows on the Yotei side so views of the mountain are front-and-center.




NLV - Facilities

Niseko Landmark View is a collection of self-contained apartments, furnished with a full kitchen, combined washer/dryer unit and bathrooms with showers and bathtubs so every guest can be comfortable and catered for.
Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the building and satellite TV is featured in all the rooms, as well as heating and air conditioning for a comfortable temperature inside during your apres time.

Onsite is the new YamaSport rental and retail location, making in-house ski rentals nice and easy.
A priceless feature of this property is the friendly front desk staff operating 24/7 in Winter, allowing guests arriving at any time of the day to receive great service and prompt check-ins.

After renovations in 2017, Niseko Landmark View apartments strike the perfect balance between warm & cozy and modern & fresh. Hardwood floors and ambient lighting offer an inviting space to warm up in after a day in the cold while the light & bright bathrooms and kitchen provide a great place to prepare meals and relax at the end of each day. Scandi-inspired living and dining furnishings give guests a comfortable space to enjoy sweeping views of the winter landscape outside and earthy tones in the lush bedrooms ensure everyone can sleep well and stay rested during an adventurous holiday.
Each apartment has access to a balcony for use in the summer so al fresco dining or an afternoon beer in the gorgeous Hokkaido climate is right at the doorstep. The open and relaxing foyer of Niseko Landmark View lets guests meet and socialise in comfort or chat to the front desk team to get the best insider tips on all things Niseko-related.
In short - it’s hard to find a better place in Niseko that boasts Niseko Landmark Views location, facilities, service and timeless comfort.
