The SpaceThis place is a scene like nothing else you will find in Japan! Welcome to beautiful Hokkaido! Come tour our house to relax and get away from it all. Leave the city and reconnect with nature. We have onsen, beaches, hiking, rice fields, forests, wildlife, biking, running, mountain biking and best of all winter sports, such as skiing and snowboarding. The house has 6 single-sized beds: 2 bunk beds and 2 single beds. It can sleep a total of 6 adults comfortably. We also has a large cot which can be used as a 7th bed. You can put as many people in here as you want, with no extra charge, within reason! Guest AccessYou have access to the whole house. My house is your house! There is soda and beer normally on property for a fee. There is a small money box in the refrigerator that you place your payment inside. Interaction with GuestsYou have the place to yourself. I am not on property, but you can communicate via email, call me or contact me through AirBNB. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is one of the most relaxing places in the world. It is quiet and there are mountains on all sides. You can hike to the peak if you want. Enjoy yourself! Go walk through the woods or fish in the river. Admire Japanese farmers growing rice the same way they have for generations. Getting AroundMena station (on the same track as Rankoshi, Niseko and Kutchan) is only 2 minutes drive away or 1.5km walk. Other Things to NoteGetting to and from the property is easy, but it can be a little overwhelming the first time. The train ride is along the Hokkaido coastline and absolutely stunning! I am available to guide you exactly to the correct place. If arriving at Chitose (CTS) airport near Sapporo please take the JR Hokuto (北斗) line towards Hokodate. You want to buy a ticket to Oshamanbe Station. You can purchase a reserve ticket which guarantees you a seat. This is what I recommend. You can transfer to the JR Hakodate Line (函館本線) towards Otaru Station if you want to ride all the way to Mena. If coming from Hakodate Airport (HKD), which is equally convenient to the house, just take the train from Hakodate Station to Oshamanbe Station in the direction of Sapporo. If arriving in Kutchan - buses are easiest in the winter - take the train station's only line towards Oshamanbe Station. It is 5 stops (Kutchan - Hirafu - Niseko - Konbu - Rankoshi - Mena) from Kutchan Station to Mena Station, where the house is located. Trains run in each direction 5 times a day every few hours. The train is a great way to get to the house on your first day and return to the airport, but it is less convenient to use every day. We recommend having a vehicle. If driving to the house there are several different options, but the express way is the fastest. Just use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps and head to Mena Station which will take you within a few minutes of the house.

The SpaceA full renovation saved this beautiful property from ruin and turned it into a chic, rustic-modern ski cabin. It has natural hot spring (onsen) piped to the property to soak weary ski/bicycle legs. The beautiful wooden arches, bespoke doors and barn-style roof all add to its charm. The house sleeps four, with one separate twin bedroom and one twin mezzanine, although it is perfect for couples and solo adventurers too. The beds in the mezzanine can be pulled together to make a king bed for couples (although the sheets/duvets are singles). The living area has a fully-equipped kitchen, a four-person bar table, a comfy sofa and two large bean bags. There is also a projector screen and projector to connect your devices, as well as an Apple TV for your enjoyment. There is high-speed wifi throughout the space. It also has a washing machine and dryer. Interaction with GuestsI live about 25 minutes away and have set up the cabin for self check-in and check-out. I travel overseas regularly. When I am away, my wonderful neighbors will ensure that you are looked after. The NeighborhoodThe cabin is in a beautiful area. Remote and quiet, yet not too far from everything. The spectacular Niseko backcountry is on the doorstep. In the summer, there are amazing hiking tracks, hot springs, and superb road cycling roads nearby (the subdivision is on one of the most popular cycle routes over the mountains). The Chisenupuri Ski Hill and public hot springs are within walking distance. The ski hill is now served by a cat ski operation called The House of Powder (run by the award-winning Hokkaido Backcountry Club), taking a limited number of guests up the ski hill each day for fresh and deep snow. There are also local guides that can take you deep into the backcountry. There are some restaurants a short drive away, mainly near Annupuri and Moiwa ski hills. The nearest convenience stores and supermarkets are in Niseko (20 mins) and Kutchan Town (30-35 mins). Getting AroundYou will need your own vehicle to rent this property. You may choose to rent at the airport and drive in, or choose to take public transport to collect a car in Niseko. An online search will provide you with car rental options. Note that you will need an international license to rent a car in Japan. The nearest bus stop is at the Kanro-no-Mori hotel, about 10 minutes drive away. It is about 10-15 minutes to Annupuri/Moiwa, about 20 to Higashiyama (Niseko Village) and 25-30 minutes to Hirafu. Other Things to NoteIn winter, the snow is deeper in the mountains. You'll need to be prepared to clear snow from the steps and your car. Sometimes you might find yourself surrounded by deep snow everywhere, and may need patience for the snow clearer to clear the roads and the driveway.
